Core i7 975 XE: CPU-Z validation with 5,709.73 MHz - World Record
5,709.73 MHz is the new World Record clock speed for a Core i7 975 XE. The extreme overclocker Coolaler was able to validate this frequency with CPU-Z.
A new overclocking World Record has been set. This time a Core i7 975 XE has been run at 5,709.73 MHz. The CPU was cooled with liquid nitrogen to lower the temperature. Overclocker Coolaler based his system on a MSI Eclipse SLI X58 motherboard with 6 GiByte DDR3-RAM from Gskill - a Geforce 8800 GT was responsible for the video output, which was unimportant.
Starting with a default clock speed of 3,330 MHz the reference clock was increased to 211.47 MHz and with the applied voltage of 1.6 volt the final frequency of 5,709.73 MHz was reached and validated with CPU-Z.
