CPU Intel Core i7-4770K “Haswell-DT” is overclocked to 6947.57 MHz

A few weeks ago Intel launched its fourth-generation Core microprocessors “Haswell-DT” for desktop socket LGA 1150 , family of microprocessors whose flagship is the Core i7-4770K microprocessor.

The overclocker Nick Shih, has managed to write his name in the list of records, to achieve an Core i7-4770K “Haswell-DT” operating at a frequency of 6947.57 MHz feat performed using cooling.

For this record, the overclocker used an motherboard Z87M Formula, and to reach this frequency had to disable 3 of the 4 cores of the microprocessor, common practice that is resorted to in order that the can scale higher frequencies while maintaining its stability.

As we have fun facts:

We are sure that this record will not last long, as many overclockers should be working hard to beat the record that has Nick Shih, so probably soon be exceeded 7GHz barrier.
