American enthusiasts are seriously working on overclocking processors in the new year. Just recently, a stunning record in the 8-core processors’ ranks thundered, set by the overclocker under the pseudonym Splave, and then, a day later, his compatriot bigblock990 scored gold in the 4-core ranks:
The American enthusiast armed himself with Intel Core i7-7740X chip, which is quite unpopular among ordinary users, liquid nitrogen and the ASRock X299 OC Formula motherboard, and then overclocked the processor to 7018 MHz:
Colleagues of the enthusiast noted that the result of bigblock990 was very strong and simply deadly. And you can’t argue with that, because in order to surpass the newly-made record, you will need at least a more successful processor sample and more than one week of experiments.
