Some time ago, the overclocker TSAIK teamed up with MSI to use the MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard to overclock the Intel Core i9-12900KS to 7.45 GHz, the corresponding voltage is 1.769V, and only one core is used. However, after only half a month or so, the overclocker Shimizu from Japan once again pushed the clock of the Core i9-12900KS to the limit, and the MSI team broke its own record.
Shimizu also used the MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard, only opened two cores, and disabled Hyper-Threading, the clock reached 7503.01 MHz, and the FSB was 101.39 MHz, the multiplier was 74, and the corresponding voltage was 1.74V. To achieve such a clock, it is obvious that liquid nitrogen heat dissipation is essential. The entire overclocking session was conducted in live events, and Shimizu’s results have been verified by Hwbot
The Intel Core i9-12900KS is currently the most clocked processor in the world, and perhaps more benchmarks will be broken in the coming period. Intel will release Raptor Lake this year to replace the current Alder Lake. It has been recently reported that the flagship Raptor Lake will exceed the boost clock created by the Core i9-12900KS, and it is possible to exceed 200 MHz to 300 MHz, which means that the upper limit will reach 5.7 GHz to 5.8 GHz.
The MSI overclocking team has been very active recently. In addition to the Intel Core i9-12900KS, it also cooperated with TSAIK to use the MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard to overclock the clock of the Ryzen 7 5800X3D to 5141.78 MHz
. Overclocking the Ryzen 7 5800X 3D is not an easy task due to AMD’s limitations and the use of 3D V-Cache technology.
