    Exclamation Core i7 920 2.66GHz @ 4.30GHz on AIR COOLING at EVGA

    I'm gone for just a few hours and Jacob Freeman @ EVGA somehow manages to overclock the 2.66GHz Core i7 920 all the way up to 4.30GHz using just air cooling and the EVGA X58 motherboard!

    This is ridiculous, and once again proves the power of Nehalem. I've been stressing over this CPU for months now, and by now you should know the reason.

    Jacob @ EVGA:


    Some testing on the EVGA X58, with the Core i7 CPU.

    100% Air Cooling

    Still testing the max QPI...



    Some temps. This is at the same clocks.

    I will get some memory numbers next.


    EVGA X58 SLI Classified E759 Limited Edition
    Intel Core i7 Extreme 980X Gulftown six-core
    Thermalright TRUE Copper w/ 2x Noctua NF-P12s (push-pull)
    2x EVGA GeForce GTX 590 Classified [Quad-SLI]
    6GB Mushkin XP Series DDR3 1600MHz 7-8-7-20
    Silverstone Strider 1500w
    OCZ RevoDrive 3 240GB 1.0GB/s PCI-Express SSD
    Creative X-Fi Fatal1ty Pro / Logitech G51 5.1 Surround
    SilverStone Raven RV02
    Windows 7 Ultimate RTM x64


    Wishing I had a display with IMAX resolution to play the Crysis series completely maxed out!

    The screenshot shows the temperature once the Pi has finished. So we are talking about idle temps? WTF? It will be something like 70+ on load!

    didn't they talk about a fancy "anti-overclock protection" for non EE models, detecting the watt consumption and cutting frequency accordingly??

    I actually thought that the OC-limitation hardware implemented. But if a bios can reduce the limitation thats cool too!

    I dun really think so... More or less what I believe is that this testing CPU they didn't really implement the TDP limitation yet... This serve as a very good market advertising...


    Then once the CPU is open to public, they might just add in the OCing crippling function..
