CPU overclocking new record releases today! Record-breaking motherboard maker, ASRock Inc., is excited to announce that Intel's new start Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K processor was able to be overclocked to incredible 6.9 GHz with the company's newly released Z77 Extreme6 motherboard. The overclocking-friendly Z77 Extreme6 mobo was designed for optimized performance and built upon top-quality components that are ripe for extreme amounts of overclocking.

New record was created by the World's Legendary Overclocker, Nick Shih, who had been topped the Professional Overclockers League for 18 months straight. With only two-year overclocking experience, Nick Shih is a living legend who holds the world champion title as well as being multiple overclocking world-records keeper which included both 2D and 3D tests.





Of course, good overclocking is only possible with good cooling setup. By using Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) cooling, ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard is allowed to achieve the highest value of CPU overclocking at 6.9 GHz! Moreover, the PC is even able to run Super PI 1M calculation programs stably and costs 5.304 seconds merely. Whoop! That's really amazing and exciting.

CPU-Z is ideal for keeping an eye on clocks. It shows how crazy the Core i7-3770K is that a 97 percent increase in speed to 6.9 GHz from default 3.5 GHz with ASRock Z77 Extreme6 motherboard.

World's Legendary OC Master, Nick Shih, managed to hit 6.9 GHz, and completely run the Super PI 1M calculations only within 5.304 seconds. Compared with 10 seconds of the normal default, Z77 Extreme6 only needs 5.304 seconds to run all Super PI 1M programs, so you can obviously see the stable performance of that PC.



Miracle also happened to Nick Shih's another OC experiment. With same configuration which includes Intel's latest Ivy Bridge Core i7 3770K processor, ASRock Z77 Extreme6 mainboard can overclock CPU to 6.7 GHz high speed, and can even completely run Super PI 32M calculation programs within 4 minutes and 53.719 seconds.

With LN2 cooling, ASRock Z77 Extreme6 is able to maintain CPU speed in 6.7 GHz high speed, and run Super PI 32M programs in such a short time - 4 mins and 53.719 secs. Users can easily realize how stable the system was.



Overclockable motherboards require unbeatable hardware specifications together with tweak software tools. With Premium Gold Caps, Digi Power, 8 + 4 Power Phase Design and ASRock signature XFast 555 Technology, ASRock Z77 Extreme6 is perfect to bring the unparalleled overclocking performance to serious overclockers. In addition to Z77 Extreme6, high performance ASRock Intel 7-sereis Motherboard Series come with everything essential that help your PC to accommodate a large percent increase in stock speed. To unleash rig's max. power, all you need is a right motherboard from ASRock!

I like how after about every sentence, the marketing bullshit states excessively how stable this motherboard is, or how exciting this motherboard is. - whoop! Chinese marketing at its best.

I think someone got close to that using all 4 cores.

Mind you, AMD got theirs with only one module active.

The Poisoned Ivy

Oooh lookie here, it goes to 6.9GHz, fantastic! using what? LN2?

Its almost an un-debatable subject, throw in LN2 and don't worry about temps like the italians say 'forget about it'.

What I am trying to say is, take a look at the air cooled and water cooled reviews, Ivy Bridge SUCKS D*ck. Almost no headroom at all for overclocking, with the AMD bulldozer with all its short comings, will run with no heat problems at all.

Its a day of grief, when all the Chip makers fail at their design, the 3D transistors that INTEL so proudly boast became an Achilles heel, and AMD Cyborg made (Bulldozer was made using super computers) chip fell into a ditch.

Lets just stick with what we got right now, at least I know I didnt bought the wrong mother board.

i am sorry but ivy bridge does hve a lot of headroom for OC you just got to cool it. So here what you can do, you can hang on to the hope that Intel can somehow defy the laws of physics, and lower the temperature significantly.

Don't expect any future processor on the 22nm processor or below to run cooler than ivy does, perhaps maybe you'll gt a 10% heat reduction, but don't count on it any time soon.

The reason the temps are so high and there really isn't any heat is because of high leakage, high leakage is caused by the fact that at the 22nm level you are dealing with quantum mechanics and thus the uncertainty principle where you cannot know where certain sub atomic particles are at any give time, thus allowing them to go anywhere and cause leakage.

They could increase the DIE surface.

how? By increasing the processing back to 32 or 45nm? lol or adding more transistors?

Lol they can increase temperature performance by simply making CPU and IHS contact more optimal.

ANyways I think this press release has to be the funniest of all time, i love how they say he was on top of the boards for 18 months straight, and he only OCed for 2 years. But what I like more is how they call OC an experiment, and how they call his scores a miracle hahahaha. Oh man they should have a USA marketing office re-write this for the US. It is a nic score tho, he worked really hard, but i don't think asrock motherboards are industry leading record breaking.

I might be mistaking alot here... But strongly doubt that the DIE is single layer... ;) It would be dead thin if it was, and well, a DIE isnt..
So, half the layer, and surface area will almost double.
