New Super Pi 32M world record with Core i7
The extreme overclocker "AndreYang” set a new world record for the Super Pi 32M benchmark.
AndreYang's system needed only 6 minutes and 40,369 seconds for a run of the biggest possible Super Pi test. This was achieved with a Core i7-965 XE which was running at 5,406 MHz - cooled with liquid nitrogen as usual for world record attempts.
According to the overcloker a core voltage of 1.7 to 1.72 volts was applied. The CPU works at temperatures down to minus 155 degrees Celsius and will probably be used for further world record attempts soon.
Since Super Pi 32M isn't affected by the CPU frequency, the other components of the test setup are high-class products, too: The DDR 3 memory was running with 1118 MHz (DDR3-2236) and latencies of 8-7-7-20 1T. The clock speed of the Northbridge was set to 4846 MHz. According to a post at Xtremesystems AndreYang used a DFI Lanparty UT X58 for his world record.
