Hungarian overclocker CSZ was able to overclock the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9650 CPU to a very impressive frequency of 5002 MHz and set two records in the ranks of the processor of the same name in the rather difficult disciplines wPrime – 32m and wPrime – 1024m.
|Discipline:||Result:||Processor frequency:||RAM frequency:||RAM timings:|
|wPrime – 32m||7sec 223ms||5002.49MHz||1111,6MHz||5-5-5-18-80 2T|
|wPrime – 1024m||3min 49sec 336ms||5001.8MHz||1111,8MHz||5-5-5-18-80 2T|
The chip was cooled with liquid nitrogen, and it was accompanied by a top-end motherboard GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P and OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2 RAM.
To the fair question of when the public can expect results in other disciplines, the author of the record answered rather shortly: “Next time.” So, most likely, the Hungarian will soon return to the study of the Core 2 Quad Q9650 processor and break out into new records.
The enthusiast’s test setup looked like this:
