A milestone in the world of overclocking that has been overseen by Asus.
Processor Intel Core i9-10900K is now available and the new 10-core Comet Lake flagship has already been overclocked to 7.7 GHz, exceeding the record of 9900K. A team of enthusiasts achieved this with some effort and liquid helium, which it is recommended not to try at home, because this speed cannot be achieved with simple cooling.
To do this, overclocker Elmor and his team took over a laboratory at Asus headquarterswhere they could pour a constant supply of noble gas into a tank attached to a base plate Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex, which is built with the intention of carrying out this type of extreme practice. In the past, some processors have brought these breakneck speeds close to 9 GHz, with the AMD FX-8350 reaching almost 8.8 GHz, but it’s not common.
It was carried out in an Asus laboratory with constant liquid heliumThe team posted a video of 5 minutes showing the process and the complications of overclocking at this level. It is not an experience to try on a whim or pleasure, you need a prepared team and have the approval by hardware partners. Also in the pictures you can see the many complications and the risk they endured before reaching their goal.
Here are the 4 keys to improving the competitiveness of new generation Intel processors, as well as some of the most interesting overclockings of recent times, such as the 5.75 Ghz Threadripper 3970X processor. Don’t miss the video of Elmor and his team capable of making a new milestone in overclocking inside the Intel Core i9 processors.
