GUN'G'STAR of TeamRussia successfully achieved an overclocking record of 5.666 GHz for the quad-core Intel Core i7-3820 processor; a feat that validates the LGA2011 i7-3820 of being a generally good chip for overclocking, despite being "Limited Unlocked" (BClk multiplier being unlocked only to a few notches above its stock setting). GUN'G'STAR achieved a clock speed of 5,665.99 MHz using a BClk speed of 131.74 MHz, a multiplier value of 43x, and core voltage of 1.6V. The chip was assisted with GeIL-made DDR3-1600 memory sitting on all four channels, and ASUS Rampage IV Extreme motherboard. Only 2 out of 4 cores of the i7-3820 were enabled for the feat, HyperThreading was disabled. Extreme cooling was used. The CPU-Z validation can be accessed here.

If you have to disable cores it kinda defeats the purpose...

I have to agree, an I7@~5.7Ghz with only two cores and extreme cooling is pretty much pointless. Some animals can reach ridiculously high speeds by falling into the abyss of a 500 meters deep ravine, - but because of some "certain" reasons - we don't measure maximum speeds like that;)

Just like the 8GHz Bulldozer BS, this is useless information that's akin to penis-waving.

That is the best analogy I've ever heard for extreme overclocks that defeat the purpose of having a highly-threaded CPU.

Nice OC, but I don't see why they say this validates it as a good chip for overclocking, a term like that makes me think over everyday air cooling or water cooling OCing, not DICE or other crazy method.

The bottom left of that imagine was what makes your statement great. Guess you never visited the AMD record threads where all the Intle fanboys said "you can't run this daily", :slap: no shit.

So you just "imagined" this? WTF are "Intle fanboys"? Is there another company out there making CPUs?

And what's the point of your post anyway? Do you have to be an "Intle fanboy" to say "you can't run this daily" in the AMD 8.461GHz news thread over here in TPU? And why bring THAT up then? I haven't even APPROACHED that "can't run this daily" angle, since I just focused on the overclock itself.

So here I am, just talking about the overclocks themselves, the NUMBERS, the FREQUENCIES, and then you suddenly come up with that "can't run this daily" angle? For what purpose? To provide confusion?

Is this supposed to be an impressive overclock?
It's impressive because of the how (not talking about the cooling for obvious reasons), and regardless of the nature of the CPU itself. Even if the overclock is "just" 4.67GHz with liquid cooling it would still be impressive.

jesus dude, take it easy. Clearly "Intle" was just a typo for Intel. He is just saying that to shut down those cores and to use "extreme cooling" for this OC to work isn't viable in a daily use situation.

Besides, in your first post in this thread, you were pretty much asking for trouble (even though i took it as a joke) some people will take that seriously and to their heart.

What's the point of attacking peoples' spelling and grammar? How does that contribute to the conversation at all? Typically people do that when they don't have a valid rebuttal to an argument.

And there's no point in raising THAT when quoting me, since both this 5.666GHz and 8.461GHz overclocks for the i7-3820 and FX-8150 respectively were both done with "extreme cooling" and with just two cores. The fact that such clocks are not sustainable in daily use does not preclude the comparison between the two.

Besides, in your first post in this thread, you were pretty much asking for trouble (even though i took it as a joke) some people will take that seriously and to their heart.
Exactly, fanboys are everywhere. AMD fanboys are even more vicious, eclipsed only by Apple fanhipsters.

But then again I had rebuttals, so...you didn't "contribute" at all. :laugh: You can say that I was...:cool: the atypical. ;) :laugh:

Impressive this would have been....If it were on water or air.... However still dosent change the fact that Intel rocks and the The other teams fan-boys secretly drool over Intel's hardware in private like naughty little school boys with pin up magazine.

Nice overclocking feat for a partially locked chip, too bad for it a good binned 2600k/2700k can achieve 6GHz on exotic cooling, I wonder what's the roof of this chip on water cooling or even phase change which are possible to run 24/7.


@ fanboys argument, excluding the fact that entropy was trolling hard (Idk why he would do that)
Because makes sense to be a fanboy of either Intel or AMD, right?
Fanboyism is what ruins goods forums like this, they'll always defend their beloved company even if they have to make up an argument.
Many times I've seen fanboys recommending hardware to people who asked for an advice about hardware.
Seriously, if you are a fanboy ( I'm talking generally) you should get your brains tested.

Unless these babies do 5ghz easy for 24/7 on air, there is no need to upgrade from a 2500k or 2600k.

Whoa silver, whoa, lol, don't get so butt hurt. Imagined what? (clarification helps) And grammar police on a obvious typo, I am so hurt. :laugh:

And no, you don't have to be an Intel fanboy to bring up that you can't run 8ghz 24/7, you have to be a moron (it's pretty obvious you can't does't take a rocket scientist to figure that out). I bring it up because rather than making a constructive post about the record itself, you would rather be the first to troll (don't act like anyone else but you started this). You didn't focus on anything, except for trolling, don't act like your post had any point except being inflammatory.

So here you are talking about nothing and trolling, not talking about any sort of numbers, and you get offended when someone calls you out. (this is a restructuring of your last sentence since you weren't discussing anything about specifics like you probably should have been).

Exactly, fanboys are everywhere. AMD fanboys are even more vicious, eclipsed only by Apple fanhipsters.
It's funny you say that, since you were the first troll in the thread, a Intel thread, and you had to mention AMD. I haven't seen any other BS posts in this thread except yours.

Funny you should say that considering your posts contain nothing of substance. I wasn't attacking you in anyway, just pointing out that you have contributed nothing worthwhile to this post. Granted, I have not as well, but I did not demean anyone in the process.

This thread has nothing to do with fanboyism. While I think that this is a decent accomplishment for the chip, I can't say I'm overly impressed. These chips should be tested to their full potential with all cores on and HT on.

Nice overclocking feat for a partially locked chip, too bad for it a good binned 2600k/2700k can achieve 6GHz on exotic cooling, I wonder what's the roof of this chip on water cooling or even phase change which are possible to run 24/7.
A good bin :slap:? How about there are only two listed at Hwbot.


I have to imagine that 5Ghz+ on water with all cores is tangible. I cant imagine LN2 was needed to get there.

This also tells me that the turbo is up to 4.3Ghz, so thats interesting.

Other team? Secretly drool?

You do realise that AMD broke the overclocking record @ 8.429GHz. Yep

too bad a 5.7Ghz SB-E pounds on it in benchmarks though! One trick pony comes to mind. :D

SB-E 2.2s @ 5.7Ghz - http://hwbot.org/benchmark/wprime_32m/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2470#start=0#interval=20
FX 4.2s @ 7Ghz- http://hwbot.org/benchmark/wprime_32m/rankings?hardwareTypeId=processor_2396#start=0#interval=20

These chips should be tested to their full potential with all cores on and HT on.
See... again, thats not the name of the game with CPUz. The object is to get the highest score... that is achieved by disabling cores and using your strongest ones. Of course its not a 24/7 thing to do, its never intended to be that way for CPUz. This site just doesnt understand the demographic those numbers are intended for. ;)

That's irrelevant. AMD holds the record. That can not be disputed.

Pounds on it? There is no benchmarks of Bulldozer @ 8.429GHz and there is no benchmarks of SB-E @ 5.7GHz for a cross comparison. So how do you know which performs better? Or whom pounds on whom?

An OC with all cores I would love. But regardlesss, both SB-E and BD had only 2 cores running, so its fair game. AMD holds the OC crown. Lets not cry over a fact.

Lulz.. nobody is crying here.. I see people reaching to defend AMD at all costs though! :p

I edited in examples. BD cant run Wprime anywhere close to 8.4Ghz so tough to compare apples to apples. So at 5.7Ghz (SBe) and 7Ghz (BD) SBe is almost twice as fast in that bench. 5.7Ghz Wprime to 5.9Ghz CPuz max (full cores in Wprime, and less in CPUz) vs BD at 7Ghz full cores, and 8.4zGhz less in CPUz. Drastic difference there. You wouldnt want to see 5.7Ghz v 5.7Ghz... my 2600k would beat it out! :p

But yes, they hold that record.. absolutely. I cannot and would not take away from that feat. :)


But I digress. :)
