World Record for Core i7 CPU Frequency Broken at 5510.09MHz!-- ASUS ROG Rampage II Extreme Smashes World Record in CPU Frequency on Latest Intel Platform --
Fremont, California (December 2nd, 2008) - The release of the Intel Core i7 has set the overclocking arena abuzz with excitement in anticipation of new world records. Armed with the ASUS ROG Rampage II Extreme motherboard that supports the newest Intel platform, the Japanese overclocking enthusiast duck smashed to the top of the overclocking charts and notched in a world record for Core i7 CPU frequencies. Recording an exceptional score of 5510.09 MHz, duck clearly laid down the gauntlet for future challengers to the throne. A CPU overclocking veteran, duck still holds the world’s highest frequency for overclocking a Pentium 4 631 CPU to a staggering 8180.4MHz last year.
The new world record was in no small part thanks to the overclocking-oriented features found on the new Rampage II Extreme motherboard. TweakIt, an easy-to-use joystick-like control on the motherboard, enables overclockers to make real-time changes to their systems’ core frequency, voltage and other parameters—even while the benchmark utility is running. At no point does software come into play, as the tweaking is completely hardware-based. With hassle-free tweaking, coupled with real-time LCD poster information such as system frequency, users can implement on-the-fly modifications during CPU tests for extraordinary benchmark scores.
That TweakIt thing sounds pretty cool.
Sweet! Which I had more cash for the holidays. 😉 I'm aiming for i7 next year.
This monster is the one to have! I,ve read a couple of reveiws on this thing and its incrediable! The price is in line with ealier models and it be just as well getting one and then saving up for the i7!The layout ocing everything is top notch! If I was to aquire the cash for a new rig this thing would be at the top of the list.Im just waiting for Raid of Bob to show us how its done! You know with the money thing!
So how do you cool a 5510.09MHz processor?[*-)]
I am looking forward to this using this hardware you can follow my page at

any new tips
Oh almost forgot current rig..
Intel extreme DX48BT2, Q9550, 4 Gig DDR3, 3x SATA2 500 - 2 in software Raid for media, ATI 4870 (two in crossfire) LG Blu-Ray Burner - Games ok just not sure what advantages crossfire allows so gonna try the HD 4870x2
Awesome! The new cpus from Intel and AMD are looking to be great overclockers
