Seeing is Believing: GIGABYTE is First with Validated 7.032 GHz CPU Clock World Record on Ivy Bridge

Taipei, Taiwan, May, 30th 2012 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel Core i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-U5H motherboard.

The 7.0 GHz milestone was surpassed using an Intel 3rd generation Core i7 3770k processor (aka Ivy Bridge) by renowned overclocker HiCookie, pushing the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the current #1 highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to respected global overclocking website HWBot.org.

Additionally, HiCookie has broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching an unprecedented 3280MHz with all 4 memory slots populated using the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory – also a new world record. This new record was achieved thanks in part to GIGABYTE's engineering prowess and tried-and-true memory tuning capabilities.

Before anyone starts complaining. The "first" in the PR title is because it's the first 7G validation at HWBOT. Just sayin'

Fyi - full blown PR has two videos included:

Impressive response from clock change. I love it:D

I like how it retains bios boot clocks..instead of booting from last settings applied.
