Legendary Japanese overclocker Duck hits 7.3GHz with i5 655K

For me, the "wow, that's amazing"-bar is probably set a little higher than most of you as I spend most of my day at this site where I come across a lot of crazy overclocking results.

Then comes this ...

Honestly, this was the first time in a long time that the only said the works "Holy -bleep-" out loud sitting behind the screen ... simply amazing!

Anyone who will put 2.011 volts into that CPU is nuts. Love the result, way to go Ducksan. I see it is the new K0 stepping too.

I only take on stupid cheating c*nts.
Sorry if Sam is your friend...

Duck = ownage and a very trustworthy person, so keep your whining about your friend being targeted out of this thread.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't in Japan when he did this, because he was at EVGA. Here's the video: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/9286748

United States overclocking101 says:

dear god thats amazing! thats seriously fast for one of these chips! but hey at least we know they will take 2v and still be alive to validate!

Any idea if there will be a cut version that shows the highlights in a 5-ish minute video?

I would want to post it on the front page ... but it's a bit tooooooooooo long.

Germany mAlkAv!An says:

Just download & cut it ^^

says:

Impressive stuff to watch.

Australia Dinos22 says:

anyone else watch the last video (No3)
i got a giggle when they attempted booting at 9GHz lol

says:

I just did - the thing that scares me is that he got as far as the XP screen. Crazy stuff.

Australia Dinos22 says:

i should do a video with a Core i7 booting at 10Mhz.......that should draw in some crowds lol
