i7-6700K Hits New Overclocking Record set by Chi-Kui Lam
Intel’s i7 6700k is the current pinnacle of consumer processing power. As with everything processor-related, the overclockers of the world have been trying their best at making this chip go from fast to blistering. Previously frequencies such as 4.2Ghz were considered extremely satisfactory, but the envelope has been pushed and torn apart after an i7 6700K was recorded at a frequency much much higher than 4.2Ghz.
The maxed out i7 6700k achieved a record breaking 7 Ghz frequency. The guy behind this was Hong Kong’s
He faced stiff competition from a couple of German overclockers, Dancop and Der8auer, who came pretty close to that record using their Asus Maximus VIII motherboard. But they managed to just brush the 7Ghz line (7007.85MHz) . They now stand second in overall ranking.
The Competition in the field of Overclocking is heating up with every new chip that gets released.
