    Intel Core i7-8700K overclocked to 7.4GHz for SuperPi 32M record

    And the (3C/3T) feat was undertaken using an Intel Z270 chipset.
    Read more.

    Re: Intel Core i7-8700K overclocked to 7.4GHz for SuperPi 32M record

    "Other system specs included; 2x 8GB (dual-channel) G.Skill Trident RAM. The memory ran at 2,078MHz, at timings of 12-12-12-28-1T, which corresponds to DDR4-6334. Windows XP was the OS of choice."

    In the picture the North Bridge works at 6333.8 Mhz, from the settings i see the RAM would run at DDR4 - 4160Mhz, heck the world record for ram is 5500 Mhz that means DDR4-6333.8 would be a new world record.

    I'm sure this is useful...to absolutely no one.

    What strikes me here isn't the overclock. It's the fact that Intel insists you buy a new motherboard rather than letting you use the old one. Yet here these supposedly incompatible parts work together so well and remain so stable that you can do this kind of O/C on it.

    It's really exposed how anti consumer Intel really is.

    As is that comment. If you not interested in overclocking then don't read about it, no one said you had to. What's next "I'd rather play ON my computer..." If that's what you want fine, but some of us like overclocking as an engineering hobby, not every one just wants to play Minecraft and troll people on their computers. Some of us are interested in how they work and how to make them work better, even if we can't replicate it at home.

    Windows XP allows the use of 3.5GB of the 16GB of ram on that machine, half the cores are turned off and threading disabled. That isn't working "better", it is a train-wreak of a setup optimised to run one of the most pointless programs ever.

    It seems the Z270 works with CFL - apparently some of the Clevo/Eurocom Z270 based desktop replacement notebooks are now running CFL Core i7 CPUs.

    Yeah that bit was interesting. I'm guessing the platform can do more than calculate the value of pi badly though, doesn't require XP, disabling of cores or liquid nitrogen to work.

    Nothing comes closer to the Pentium4 3GHz chip running at 8GHz

    The fact that I had a desktop Pentium 4 in a laptop back in the day still shocks me. The thing was over and inch thick and put out the heat of a fan heater under load. And not under load. And could not be used on a lap without the acquisition of vent patterned genital burns.

    The AMD FX8350 would like an all core 8.72GHz word with you.

    if your interested in overclocking and want to run a overclocked pc .... don't bother reading, whats next it might hit 8GHZ in the vacuum of space?

    Unless you're relying on cooling from vaporisation, the machine will overheat pretty quickly because the vacuum of space has effectively zero thermal conductivity.

    Also, overclocking the machine to the edge of stability while being bombarded with cosmic rays might be a bit challenging.

    i`m just running superpi on my 5ghz fx9590.
    i`ll post my score when it finishes- which will be this week, hopefully.

    Yip, I fully agree and are actually glad that he did this on a 200 series board to give Intel 'n big middle finger.

    If AMD continues it's current momentum they will always be my first choice.
