Core i7 920 2.66GHz @ 4.30GHz on AIR COOLING at EVGA AuDioFreaK39 Nov 8th, 08, 04:22 PM #1

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.

The temperatures are achieved in an air conditioned environment?

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!

System temp is already 26 degrees, guess the ambient much be less than 20 degrees.

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

Did they do some BIOS mod or something?

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..
