British overclocker MATT26LFC was able to put in his piggy bank a gold medal in the GEEKBENCH3 – SINGLE CORE discipline, becoming the first in the rank of the Intel Core i7-4790K processor popular in the past (Devil’s Canyon, Haswell, 22nm).
Using liquid nitrogen as a cooling system, the enthusiast managed to overclock the i7-4790K processor to an impressive 6100 MHz (the second result after the Frenchman Mylth with his 6105 MHz) and successfully complete the GEEKBENCH3 – SINGLE CORE benchmark with a score of 6223 points:
The record itself, according to the notes in the notebook in the screenshot above, was set back on June 4 and published the next day. This suggests that with a high degree of probability, MATT26LFC may already have a higher result on hand, which the overclocker prefers to leave for a rainy day, until the moment when his current record can be surpassed by someone.
The British test setup consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASROCK Z97 OC FORMULA;
- RAM – 4GB G.SKILL DDR3;
- Graphics csrd – NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 610;
- Power supply – Super Flower Leadex 1600W.
