HiCookie takes 3930K to 5.6GHz

/ 5 years ago

HiCookie is one of the best known overclockers out there at the moment. And lately he has been pushing the new Sandy Bridge-E processors to their limits. Using a Gigabyte board to help salvage Gigabyte’s tarnished reputation HiCookie managed to take the i7 3930K to 5.643GHz on a Gigabyte UD3 motherboard. The Gigabyte board features the latest F7 BIOS which doesn’t make your motherboard blow up.

The other parts used were some Kingston HyperX RAM and a Corsair AX1200W power supply. The 5.643GHz overclock was constructed using a 99MHz base clock and 57 multiplier. To show the stability of the overclock a couple of Pi related tests were run.

PiFast – 13.02 seconds

SuperPi 32m – 6min 8sec 516ms

SuperPi 1m- 6sec 640ms
