As a good maker, surely on more than one occasion, even just to perform certain tests, they have decided to overclock your processor. Imagine if we take this to the extreme for a moment, that is, we intend to make it work at a much higher clock speed, personally I have to confess that I have never tried it, but it is surprising to see, as is the case, to a processor Intel i7 7700K, one of the new Kaby licks, working at 7 GHz.
For the moment, although the performance achieved is simply impressive, the truth is that the processor has not yet reached the market so, once it is available, many will be the world's overclockers specialists who will launch to try to overcome these data. Tell you that to achieve this, for a record time, the truth is that you have to work with materials such as a motherboard ASrock Z170M OC Formula equipped with the Z170 chipset, one of the few that will be compatible with Kaby lake.
They manage to get an Intel i7 7700K processor running at 7 GHz.
At first, this motherboard is used for testing but the truth is that the company is about to launch the new platform Z270 that surely, especially since it has been developed specifically for Kaby lake, should significantly improve the results. Second, to get an overclock of 7022,96 MHz a multiplier of 69 had to be used together at a base frequency of 101,78 MHz following the same methodology used to carry out this work as that used in the Sandy Bridges which, as you will surely know if you dedicate yourself to this, have a supported base frequency minimal.
Finally, it should be noted that to achieve such figures, more voltage is needed, in this particular case, the processor has worked on 2,00 volts, almost double what a standard configuration offers. The point of dissipating the heat produced has arrived and, as you can see in the images, because an air dissipation system or a liquid cooling system would be too weak, an LN2 has been used, that is, a system of dissipation by liquid nitrogen.
