    i7-3770K oc'd to 7 GHz!

    ... Or so MSI claims. Have a lookysee:

    Any thoughts? I was amused reading that after just coming from the HardOCP website. I could imagine that system got hot as the devil.

    Roger that, Ted. Put a nice sear on a steak as well. And if they used a watercooled solution, just unplug the lines for hot water and instant coffee or tea.

    I was never big in overclocking, but this seems to "push the envelope" a little too much. They better have massive cooling. Enough hot water to shower with.

    7GHz is a bit high, even for the HardOCP crowd.
    More for bragging rights, less for stability.
    I would like to see the temps though, and of course know what CPU cooler it used.

    Exactly. Power supply as well. And duration. I find it interesting that they performed the task on their '65 board, rather than their "Big Bang" MPower model. LOL, if you know what I mean.

    If I read the CPU-z charts correctly there may also be a slight of hand going on too.

    Only one core running?

    Curious indeed. I am mystified by such magic.
