Pentium Dual Core E6500K exceeds 6 GHz
The new Intel Pentium Dual Core E6500K, which is marketed in Asia, has been brought to 6 GHz with liquid nitrogen cooling.
PC Games Hardware has already reported about Intel's attempt in Asia to introduce an entry level processor with an open multiplier. The Pentium Dual Core E6500K is supposed to be a direct competitor to AMD's Black Edition CPUs which have an open multiplier, too.
Now the user DFORDOG of the Expreview Forum has overclocked the processor: With liquid nitrogen the PDC E9500K was brought to more than 6 GHz- 6,004 MHz to be exact. The system was based on a TP45 motherboard from Biostar and two Geil 1 GiByte DDR2-800 RAM modules. For the validation of 6,004 MHz the FSB was increased to 353.18 MHz and the multiplier was set to 17 - the core voltage was increased to 1.8 volt. For normal users a test with water or air cooling would have made more sense, but the results show what can be expected from such a processor. Pictures of the OC results can be found in our gallery.
