Intel Core i7-4770K overclocked to 7193.8MHz

Hong Kong-based modder named Chi-Kiu Lam has recent set a new world record for the highest frequency for an Intel Core i7-4770K which was overclocked to 7193.8MHz.

In order to reach this insane clock speed, Chi-Kiu Lam had to raise the core voltage to 2.048 volts and had to use Liquid Nitrogen to prevent the system from overheating.

Now here’s a look at the components the modder used on his way to reaching his record-setting OC:

ASUS ROG Maximus VII Gene
3.5GHz Intel Core i7-4770K quad-core processor, up to 3.9GHz
Overclocked to 7193.8MHz
256GB OCZ Vertex SSD
Corsair Dominator DDR3 RAM
Galaxy GeForce GT 630 (HOF) Edition, DDR3
Antec High Current PRO 1300W PSU

  1. So how many seconds did it take to boot up Windows (or whatever OS he is using)?

    • No time, it was running ms dos

      Hardcore overclockers out there don’t give a damn about how long an OS boots up. They care more about how high they’ve pushed every single overclockable component in their computer.

      The boot media being used (e.g. HDD, SSD) will always be the main factor on how fast the OS will boot.

      Next time, do your research first before you get yourself bashed by another “know-it-all” idiot here in YugaTech.

  2. mabilis kaya magtype ng thesis dito?

    • Bakit? May malalagay ka ba sa thesis? Hahaha.

    • Laro na lang tayo ng pacman, galaga, pinball… baka di na tayo ma-deds kasi mabilis na ung proc nito. :D

      Hahaha, burn!

  3. Gawin nila sa tropical countries yan at sunog kaagad ang chipset in minutes. Overclocking fetish.

    • I don’t think tropical room temp would make any difference, gumamit nga naman sya ng liquid nitrogen as coolant lol

    • I guess you know nothing about liquid nitrogen!

      …at eto na naman po si @archie, ang “know-it-all” idiot ng YugaTech.
