As a cooling system, the enthusiast used liquid nitrogen, thanks to which the Austrian was able to overclock the Ryzen 5 3600XT processor to a frequency of 5698 MHz. At the same time, the voltage of the cores was 1.696 volts, and the frequency of the RAM was 4600 MHz with delays of 14-13-13-28-38 1T.
The key feature of this result is the combination of high clock speeds of processor cores and RAM. For comparison, the holder of the last record in the 16-core ranks – the Brazilian enthusiast NoMS, was able to achieve much higher processor clock frequencies – 5750 MHz, but the memory in his case stopped at 4333 MHz with timings 14-13-13-24-40 1T, and for Geekbench3, both the speed of the CPU and the bandwidth of the RAM are extremely important.
The test setup of the Austrian consisted of the following components:
- Motherboard – ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII IMPACT;
- RAM – 2 x 8GB G.SKILL TrindetZ RGB F4-4000C15-8GTZR;
- Video card – NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 (ordinary plug);
- OS – Windows 10.
And it looked like this:
