As we mentioned yesterday, Dino, one of our in-house Overclocking gurus, was in attendance last weekend at the London International Technology Show in the UK. While we knew that Dino had been turning on the style doing some live audience overclocking, what we didn’t know until a few hours ago is that, on Sunday he actually managed to get perilously close to some world records, hitting 8150MHz on LN2 using our GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 board!
Ok, so the world record is slightly higher, but those guys had the pick of a big bunch CPU-wise, plus they were using Liquid Helium (theoretical low temp of -269 °C), not Liquid Nitrogen (-196 °C). Huge kudos to Dino for his efforts during a live public show. This puts Dino 9th in the world for CPU frequency ranking, 3rd for FX-81350 ranking. Outstanding work.
