Asus + Core i7 = Overclock Record of 5611.22MHz

ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution Breaks Overclocking World Record for Core i7 CPU Frequency at 5611.22MHz!

 Since the release of Intel® Core™ i7, overclocking on the platform has been abuzz, with new world records arising from time to time. With the ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution workstation motherboard supporting the Intel Core™ i7 platform, the Japanese overclocking enthusiast duck smashed the world record for Core i7 CPU frequency at 5611.22 MHz—almost insurmountable for future challengers.

The new world record was thanks to the board’s sophisticated circuit layout providing overclocking stability. P6T6 WS Revolution has the following unique features:

Three True x16 Link PCI-E for 3-way SLI and CrossFireX on Demand
The P6T6 WS Revolution comes equipped with built-in 3-way SLI/CrossFireX on Demand technology for outstanding graphics performance. This revolutionary technology allows users to enjoy 2-way / 3-way SLI™ technology or CrossFireX™ support on the same motherboard.

Revolutionary with 6 High Speed PCI-E Gen2 x16 Slots
In order to provide customers with high speed I/O options, the P6T6 WS Revolution is equipped with 6 PCI-E Gen2 x16 Slots, which offer you sufficient I/O interfaces to fulfill your demand for a graphics or computing solution.

Enjoy Working with WS Diag. LED and the “ASUS Heartbeat”
During bootup, the Diag. LED will check key components (CPU, DRAM, VGA card and HDD) sequentially; and if an error is found, the LED next to the error device will remain lit until the problem is solved. On successful boot up, the vivid blue LEDs around the ASUS logo pulse like the steady rhythm of deep breaths—making the workstation board “come alive”.

I'd love to see a 3-way SLI Review of this board against others that aren't true x16x16x16 and are only x16x8x8 and such.

Speaking of "almost insurmountable": $365.00

Ouch! But then again, if you're going to be buying three top-end cards too... that's probably within your budget.

i7s look like so much fun to play with. Shame the entry cost is so high right now.

And once again there is no mention of the CPU cooling-solution that was used to achieve 5611.22 MHz. Hopefully no one runs out and buys this Asus board thinking they can duplicate this without using liquid nitrogen, dry ice, or some other exotic form of cooling. But I have to wonder how long it takes this thing to run Super Pi 1M!

I have yet to see any of "Ducks" record breaking rigs' cooling solutions. I would like to know what he used as well but couldn't find any info.

Marco C 5 years ago

All of these "record breaking" overclocked have been acheived with either liquid nitrogen, or a cascading Phase Change setup.  There's no way to get close to these numbers with air or water cooling alone...

Just to keep things in perspective you gotta take a look at THIS Phenom II @ 6744MHz record run. The cooling-solution on this one is also a mystery.

Wow, that in impressive clock... I so want an i7

I'm more impressed with AMD's 6.3Ghz OC with a Phenom II Stick out tongue

peti1212 5 years ago

yeah, but the Phenom II won't perform as fast as the Core i7 at the 5.6Ghz. I remember the days when some Italian overclockers overclocked a Pentium 4 3.2Ghz processor to 8.3Ghz. Now that was sweet.

Are there "rules" for this stuff? Did he just have to nurse it to a desktop view and snap a pic, or was the CPU actually stable under load at those clock speeds?

nelsoncp21 5 years ago

this is all very true but one thing this does point out is that this board is not shy to overclocking. While 99.9% of users have no chance to hit these speeds, they will however be able to get good results using this board. I am still not sold on this 3-way sli thing either. You'd be better off say running 2-295's verses 3-280's imo. but if you got the money it looks cool.

acarzt 5 years ago

I'd like to see 3-way 295s lol I wonder if it would be possible with 3 true x16 slots.

tanka12345 5 years ago

If they could achiveve 8.3Ghz on a P4, why can't they hit even higher on a Corei7?

bob_on_the_cob 5 years ago

@Nelsoncp21 Very try. My CPU overclocks the same on air as under water with my current motherboard (Not complaining Dave/Marco and othersWink ) A good motherboard is the foundation to a great PC.

Also I am still not sold on the multi GPU thing in general. It is a good bit of trouble to get it running in every game. Before it hits anything past enthusiasts both sides still have a good bit of work to do on the drivers.

@Tanka12345 The P4 had a very long pipeline which could produce crazy clock speeds if you could get rid of the heat, but they are not that fast clock to clock. The prescott reached the highest speeds(out of the netburst style cpus), but as a owner of a Pentium D no air cooler would get you much more than 4GHz, A level the upperend core2s can get on air much easier. The move to more cores over high clockspeeds, though requiring a lot of work software side, is more than likely the future of computing.

(I need to hook up the Pentium D under water and see what I can get out of it(random though))
