Intel’s Core i9-10900K processor is out now and the new 10-core Comet Lake flagship has already been overclocked to 7.7GHz , beating the record of 9900K. A team of enthusiasts has managed this with some effort and unbridled liquid helium, a practice that is recommended not to try at home, because this speed cannot be achieved with a simple cool down .
To accomplish this, overclocker Elmor and his team have grabbed a lab at Asus headquarters , where they could pour a constant supply of the noble gas into a tank attached to an Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard , which is built with the intention to carry out this type of extreme practices. In the past, some processors have brought these blistering speeds close to 9 GHz, with AMD’s FX-8350 nearly reaching 8.8 GHz , but it is rare.
It has been done in an Asus laboratory with constant liquid heliumThe team uploaded a 5-minute video showing the process and complications of overclocking at this level. It is not an experiment to try on a whim or fun, it takes a prepared team and have the support of hardware partners . In the images, you can also see the numerous complications and the risk they went through before completing their objective.
Here we leave you the 4 keys to improve the competitiveness of the next-generation Intel processors, also some of the most interesting overclocking of recent times, such as the Threadripper 3970X processor at 5.75 Ghz. Do not miss the video of Elmor and his team capable of achieving a new milestone of overclocking within the Intel Core i9 processors.
