L0ud_sil3nc3 one-ups W1zerty and sets new 2xCPU XTU record with Core i3 4340 at 4070 Mhz

In the everlasting overclocking rankings at HWBOT, records fall pretty much every day. Sometimes they are shattered, sometimes see only a slight improvement. But not very often the improvement is literally the size of a one-up; a single point increase over the previous record. Well, that's happened last weekend.

Using a Core i3 4340 at 4070 MHz, L0ud_sil3nc3 from the USA scored 551 points in XTU. In the 2xCPU category, that is exactly 1 point more than the 550 points by W1zerty and his Core i3 4340 at 3930MHz. A small score increase for a fairly large jump in CPU frequency, it seems. L0ud_sil3nc3 already stated he "will rerun this with memory on cold", so expect another top score incoming soon.

Well done!

Thanks PJ :)

I don't think the actual cpu frequency was 4070 (at least not for the majority of the time), as 110.1x36=3964Mhz. Must be some bclk drift at that upper end of the spectrum, or just general good old fashioned Haswell weirdness. . .Once again, a great reason why a screenshot is awesome for this bench.

Regardless, cold memory is in the forecast.

Hm, interesting. 110.1x37 would be 4070 MHz though. I've seen this issue with the monitoring before ... sometimes it jumps up a ratio.

Well that makes a lot of sense.

So something in XTU monitoring is causing the multi to read one higher than actual?

Good question. Let's fire off an email :p

it's "boost" or "turbo", I have the same on mine, but as soon as you start benchmark frequency fall.... The "good" frequency is 36*110.xmhz
