Getting the Maximus V Extreme to push your CPU beyond its specifications is simplicity itself thanks to a very easy to use BIOS and the high quality of the components.

It didn't take long to get our i7-3770K up to the magical 5GHz barrier, on air remember, and whilst it would run most of our tests it wasn't quite stable enough to complete them all.

A small drop down to 4.9GHz, still the highest stable overclock we've yet achieved, and all of our benchmarks completed, so this will be the speed that we'll use for our overclock tests.
