Intel's i9 7900X has been overclocked to 6.01GHz - a new world record

 
The Greek overclocker Sofos1990 has been able to successfully overclock his Intel i9 7900X to 6.01GHz, a world record overclock for this CPU, which has also achieved several world records for several 10-core CPU benchmarks. 
 
This CPU has achieved a score of 12189.52 in HWBOT's PRIME benchmark, making this CPU the fastest 10-core CPU in the world (at least in this test). This score also makes SOFOS1990's i9 the fasted single-CPU system in this particular benchmark.   
 
To achieve this colossal overclock LN2 cooling was required as well as an insane vCore Voltage of 1.6V, which would be able to fry most systems when using traditional cooling methods.

In terms of hardware sofos1990 used Gigabyte's X299 SOC Champion motherboard with an i9 7900X, using a CPU multiplier of 59 and a bus speed of 102, creating a 6.01GHz overclock. 

The memory used in this system was a set of G.Skill Trident Z memory, which was clocked to 3263MHz, with a 120GB Corsair Neutron SSD for storage and a Corsair 1500i power supply.

Considering they're the only one putting out a ten core part currently. Very pointless to even bother reporting this.Quote

Your first post and you are so negative.

This actually gives a lot of information to anyone who wants to buy. Comparing it to previous generation of CPUs you can know how much better or worse this one is.Quote
