[softpedia] Intel's Upcoming CPU Tops 6GHz

Overclocked on a DFI mobo and with lot of liquid nitrogen

Sometime ago, we told you about how Intel was planning to built its processors with more overclocking capabilities. Now, it seems that one of the company's yet to be officially introduced processors has already surfaced on the web as part of a couple of overclocking experiments. We are talking about the E8600, which is Intel's highest-clocked Wolfdale CPU.

When we say highest-clocked, we mean a maximum, factory-set core frequency of 3.33GHz. Nevertheless, for some users that isn't enough and pushing the CPU's limit is all about overclocking. And the guys at the Coolaler website are all about overclocking. As you might remember, these guys were also the ones responsible for overclocking an Intel CPU at 5GHz, which was displayed at this year's Computex show. Back then, they used an Intel quad-core processor and an MSI motherboard. This time around, they went for DFI's LP UT P35 mobo and the E8600 CPU.

The result was a CPU clocked at over 6GHz, cooled down by a lot of liquid nitrogen. The CPU was installed on a system that included 4GB of DDR2 memory and the Radeon HD 4870 graphics card.


the CPU was clocked at 6000.2MHz but that speed was raised to 6146.9 in a later overclocking attempt. The guys at Coolaler managed to attain the 6.14GHz mark by taking the processor's FSB to a maximum of 614MHz, from the standard 333MHz. This ultimately proves that Intel's upcoming 45nm Core 2 Duo will be a delight for all those overclocking enthusiasts out there.

Such practices of taking the CPU speed upwards of the standard limit are not approved by Intel, so if a user wants to push the limit of his processor, he might end up by losing the CPU warranty. But, even so, the 6.14GHz mark, reached by the guys at Coolaler, isn't something everybody can achieve. And that mainly happens because highly overclocked CPUs require a powerful cooling system, one that is most likely based on liquid nitrogen.

Also, E8600 on Asus board

nice but wouldnt these chips be Cherry picked and im pretty sure the chip died minutes after it reached the maximum cause 1.86v on 45nm is pure suicide, i guess it was a suicide run. Im guessing it will just overclock slightly better than the E8500 maybe 4.0Ghz will be a standard for the E8600 and lucky ones will get 4.5Ghz. lol Maybe we should have a 5.0Ghz thing for the title.

i would rather see a longterm stable clock on water this dosnt tell us much.
M.E.D.

They've already reached 6 with the old Penryns with this type of cooling as well..

I had my old e8400 at 4.3 for 24/7 use so most likely this will hit 4.5-4.7 24-7

Right below $300, you can already pre-order them, but the prices Ive been seeing haven't been changed to reflect the price change coming up shortly, which should actually apply to the E8600 as well.

Was going to get this one, but now I might just get a 4870x2.
