Using their new Maximus XI Apex motherboard ASUS have been able to achieve world record Intel "core architecture" overclocks of over 7.3GHz, using liquid Nitrogen and liquid Helium.  
 
Previously the highest ever Intel Core series overclock was from Intel's i7 980X on their X58 platform, reaching an overclock of 7.195GHz. Since then Intel has released their Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge, Haswell, Broadwell and Skylake CPUs, five generations of processors which failed to take Intel's Gulftown CPU from its overclocking throne. 
 
To be clear, this is not the highest clock speed that has ever been achieved on an Intel CPU, though it is the highest clock speed since Intel released their Core Series of CPUs. Right now the highest Intel core overclock is on a Socket 775 Celeron D352, which was clocked at speeds of 8543.71MHz.  
 
Now at an ASUS "Absolute Zero" event, a group of world class overclockers have been able to finally break the Intel Core series speed record by achieving overclocks of 7.383GHz on a single CPU core and a core clock speed of 7.328GHz on all four cores and eight threads on an Intel i7 7700K. 
 
The overclockers slamms was able to achieve the world's highest Intel core clock speed of 7.383GHz on a single core and the overclocker der8auer was able to achieve an overclock of 7.328GHz on all four cores and eight threads. CPU-Z screenshots of both CPU overclocks can be seen below.

This event showcases exactly how well Intel's new Kaby Lake series CPUs can overclock, with 5GHz overclocks seeming common on Intel's new Z270 platform. 
 
It is still very early days for the Kaby Lake overclocking scene, so it is expected that these world-class overclocks will be broken within the next few months, especially as BIOS revisions are released and professional overclockers gain access to custom-made BIOS versions. 
 
At this ASUS event, the overclockers Fredyama, elmor, slamms, shamino, der8auer, coolice, Raja, Xtreme Addict and Dancop were present, with most of them walking away with new world record overclocks and first place scores on a variety of CPU and gaming benchmarks.

How many years would it be until we can run that 24/7 on air/water? I'd be very happy!Quote

Wow, these guys are such ballers! They did not use LN2, the actually used LHe...which is a lot coolder than LN2. I can't believe that Asus needs a machine that makes Helium liquid...now why would they need some that is almost -270°C cold? Quote
