Australian enthusiast unityofsaints today distinguished himself with two gold medals in the ranks with Intel Core i7-930 processor, which was popular in the past. In addition, the overclocker managed to reach fourth place in overclocking the above-described CPU. Let’s start with it:

With the help of large amounts of liquid nitrogen, according to unityofsaints itself, he managed to overclock the processor to a frequency of 5353.64 MHz:

Unfortunately, due to a serious modification of the power subsystem on the Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard, it is not possible to find out the supply voltage set to the processor. Nevertheless, to repeat or surpass this result, you will need a motherboard capable of overstepping the frequency of the system bus at 255MHz. What not every LGA1366-compatible motherboard can handle.

This is followed by the first place in the discipline wPrime – 32m, in the current CPU rank:

The processor frequency was 5153 MHz with a result of 4 seconds 625 milliseconds:

Well, and the latest achievement of the Australian. Gold in the discipline wPrime – 1024m with a chip frequency of 5079MHz:

The result was 2 minutes 28 seconds 625 milliseconds:

In addition to the aforementioned Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard, the test setup also included a GIGABYTE GeForce GT 710 (GK208) graphics card, an OCZ-VERTEX3 SSD (FW: 2.15) and Windows XP installed on it. The enthusiast did not specify the rest of the hardware.

The Australian did not lie about the high nitrogen consumption for the bench session:
