Two PC enthusiasts have successfully overclocked the recently released Intel. Core i9-13900K We bumped the processor to 9GHz, setting a new world record.
Overclocking experts Jon Sandström and Pieter Plaiser helped set the record at the Asus Taiwan office earlier this month. Normally the Core i9-13900K is designed to only offer max boost speeds at his 5.8GHz. However, the team was able to achieve much higher clock speeds by using liquid helium to cool the CPU.
both Placer(opens in new window) When intel(opens in new window) We have published a video recording the results. The team first cooled his Intel processor to -196 degrees Celsius (-320.8 degrees Fahrenheit), then further lowered the temperature to -260 degrees while attempting to overclock the CPU.
In the team’s first attempt, they were able to overclock the processor to 8.9 GHz. But in the end the processor struggled to boot due to extremely low temps and another he tried to use a Core i9 chip as a backup but neither processor Performance was lacking.
With liquid helium gone, the team went back to the original Core i9-13900K rig and tried to break the 9GHz barrier. At that time, the chip finally allowed him to reach speeds of 9,008MHz in one move. performance core On the processor while the temperature is -250 degrees.Since then, overclocking site HWBot has Verified(opens in new window) feat.
To achieve overclocking, the team used Asus’ ROG Maximus Z790 Apex(opens in new window) motherboard. In addition, a metal pot was installed on top of the Intel chip, allowing the CPU to be cooled using cryogenic liquid helium.
Overclockers usually use Liquid nitrogen to achieve insane clock speeds. But Sandström chose liquid helium because the material can reach even lower temperatures. This gives the team a better chance of breaking his 9GHz barrier. However, I only had enough liquid helium to attempt overclocking for an hour.
The Core i9-13900K chip has broken the 9 GHz barrier after setting a previous CPU overclocking record at 8.8 GHz back in October.I was able to win the crown for my achievements Record 10 years ago(opens in new window) It was held by AMD’s FX-8350 chip, which overclocked the CPU to 8.79GHz in 2012.
