There's a Skylake CPU-Z Validation at 6.5GHz!

... and you can find the validation link here.

In the discussion thread linked to our previous newsflash of the 5.2GHz validation leak, Rtsurfer posted a link to the CPU-Z validation of a 6.5GHz Skylake overclocking result. Just like with the 5.2GHz validation earlier and the video "evidence" posted later on, we don't know what cooling or voltage settings were used for this validation. Heck, we don't even know if this frequency was stable.

The 6.5GHz Skylake overclock was achieved on a MSI Z170 Gaming 7 motherboard using one stick of DDR4 memory. Tapakah highlighted in the thread that the memory frequency has to be taken with a grain of salt as early reports indicate the frequency might be double than actual speed.
