6.2Ghz on a Core i7 10700K “simply” watercooled

6.2Ghz on a Core i7 10700K “simply” watercooled

Whenever we talk about high frequencies, we also talk about the use of LN2 or even Liquid Helium; this is not the case for the 10700K.

Thus, the Core i9 10900K was recently able to go up to 7.7 GHz on all its cores in overclocking. However, this record could only be achieved thanks to an abundance of technical means, including cooling using liquid helium. The use of liquid helium cooling enabled the temperature to be brought down to -269 degrees celsius!

On this i7 10700K, on the contrary, a simple liquid cooling was used by the Danish overclocker Afrom1. This frequency was achieved on an Asus ROG Maximus XII APEX motherboard, simply by increasing the multiplier to 62x with a voltage of 1.554V.

Obviously to reach this figure, there is a trick. Only 2 cores and 2 threads were active (HyperThreading disabled) in order to be able to contain the temperature rise. Nevertheless, by always using the same system, Afrom1’s CPU was able to reach a maximum of 5.80 GHz with 8 cores and 16 threads enabled. The CPU was there at its temperature limit.

This new record could allow the most optimistic to see that overclockers still make Intel their main choice for frequency up-conversion…even in 14nm.

Nevertheless, the 10700K allows you to obtain good results with an optimization for H24 as you can find it in this french article..
