Andre Yang, the overclocker famed for breaking AMD’s own overclocking record, has struck again, this time overclocking a core i7- 3770K to an insane 7.013GHz (62 x 113MHz) at the ASUS Republic Of Gamers camp in Berlin.
The overclock was done on an ASUS ROG Maximus V Extreme and using liquid Nitrogen (DIY gamers beware: do not try this at home).
The overclocked chip reportedly ran stable throughout the 4+ minute SuperPi benchmark, setting a new world record for SuperPi 32 NM. An interesting point is Andre’s usage of ASUS boards: his previous breakthrough, the AMD Bulldozer overclock, was done on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula motherboard. It’s actually a pretty impressive overclocking achievement for both Andre Yang and ASUS. Though this isn’t the first time he’s overclocked something, and it’s definitely not the highest Ghz count he’s pushed, either. If you’re interested in seeing silicon pushed to it’s limits, here’s everything covering Andre’s ASUS-based overclocks.
