Windows 7: Highest i7 2600K Overclock


17 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Windows 7 Pro x64 (both laptops)
 
 
Highest i7 2600K Overclock

The highest everyone seems to have is 4.3 or 4.4 (I can't remember which), hasn't anyone been able to go higher? I heard that it could go up to 5.3 water cooled.

I should mention that there are several here who beat my score rather handily:

Might have to do a search through the thread for the other 2600K folks. I know there have been a bunch of us over the last few pages.

Stick within the limits of sane temps and reasonable voltages and who knows?

(Ignore sane temps and reasonable voltages and you might be buying a new chip...)

Not sure where you heard that from?

Most on here have sailed past 4.6, I had this as my daily overclock for the best part of a year.

Had mine up to 5.1ghz for testing.
