A Hong Kong based professional overclocker by the name of Chi-Kui Lam has set a new record for the Intel Core i7-6700k processor frequency speeds, reaching almost 7GHz clock speeds.
In order to reach a speedy 6998.88 MHz was not straightforward, however, as it required the disabling of three of the four cores. In addition, Lam had to utilize the Hyper-Threading technology as well as increase the voltage from 1.2V up to 1.888V.
The components of this record-breaking feat include an Asrock Z170 OC Formula mainboard, DDR4 memory as well as a hefty 1300W power supply unit. Since the processor is working overtime, cooling is achieved by utilizing liquid nitrogen.
