This is a mind boggling speed naturally but not one that the average punter will even be able to think about achieving with simple air or liquid cooling it gives that Elmor who is the in house overclocking expert for Asus used liquid helium cooling to drive to 7.7GHz 7703MHz across all 10 of this CPU cores.
In this comparison to the predecessor 9900K processor another high-profile overclocker managed to hit 7.6GHz or 7613MHz to be precise so the 10th-gen Comet Lake flagship managed to eke out 90MHz more of an overclock across two extra cores of course.
As Wccftech reports in this case the 10900K was overclocked in an Asus ROG Maximus XII Apex motherboard at 1.194V.
A new world record was set in terms of overclocking system RAM with this Asus motherboard and Intel’s Core i9-10900K, with an 8GB stick of G.Skills F4-4000-C18-8GTRG memory actually being pushed to an effective memory clock of 3332MHz hitting 6665MHz or 6.6GHz a seriously impressive feat achieved by Taiwanese overclocker Bianbao.
