CTX2012: New record for Ivy Bridge frequency, 7089 MHz
The battle is waged in the session of extreme overclocking G.Skill proposed in its booth at Computex 2012, which is quite entertaining to see live because they can completely know the process that generates a record and now becomes more interesting when ivy bridge added to the recipe with a handful of renowned overclockers in one of the fairs of electronics and hardware in the world.
Now, to the point, Hicookie, a renowned overclocker with which I have had to share a couple of times in a couple of events abroad overclock, is someone who really takes his work seriously and when someone comes slightly above it all to overcome it. To put more spice to the matter, Yang-Andre overcame ASUS-world record set by the same hicookie days ago, so the latter could do was to put his mark again at the top, achieving 7089.3 MHz, a frequency that achieved with single-core Core i7 3770K enabled and disabling anything that could prevent the mark, be it HT, unnecessary peripherals and anything related to the latter to be expendable to operate the computer.
Proof of this feat is the CPU-Z validation that can be seen below, all on a motherboard GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H.
