Although the eight-core Intel Core i7-10700K processor is not the flagship of the product line, it is, firstly, quite popular among users, and secondly, demonstrates a good overclocking potential. Thus, a Danish overclocker, known as Afrom1, managed to accelerate the Core i7-10700K to an impressive 6.2 GHz.
In doing so, the user used a standard cooling system – Liquid Nitrogen – instead of an extreme system based on liquid nitrogen.
Overlocker used a motherboard AsusROG MAXIMUS XII APEX. CPU stably ran at 6.2 GHz at 1.554V. However, there is a nuance: at this overclocking only two cores were active. As it is noted, CPU operation at all active cores and with the same cooling system is possible at a frequency down to 5.8 GHz.
Recall that the Core i7-10700K runs at 3.8-5.1 GHz, has 16 MB of Layer 3 cache memory, supports multi-threading and is characterized by TDP 125W.
