Windows 7: Core i7 975XE hits 5ghz on AIR!!

30 Apr 2009   #1

Core i7 975XE hits 5ghz on AIR!!

Xtreme Systems forums member PcCI2iminal got his grubby paws on an engineering sample of Intel's Core i7 975 XE with D0 stepping and managed to overclock it to 5015.48MHz.

The trtick here is that he managed to do this with conventional cooling, the processor was only cooled by the ThermalRight Ultra 120 RT heatsink with a 102CFM San Ace fan.

The overclocker also managed to run a round of SuperPI 1M with the chip at 4750MHz, the test was finished in 8.672 seconds.

The system used the Biostar TPower X58 motherboard, 6GB of Corsair Dominator DDR3-1866 memory, a 32GB Transcend SSD, Radeon HD 4890 and a Topower Giga-EZ 1000W PSU.


Well, seems this is going to hit really high clocks on Ln2, now just to find a way of running the OC with ''HT'' enabled.....

Makes you wonder how far they could push it at sub zero temps, maybe 10Ghz

I read the same article that skunk did but apparently the folks at Guru did not know this was already published....

I was *also* gonna post it here but I searched first for core 975 and found that post that Aaron linked to - and decided this was old news enough....)
