Intel seems to be making quite a mark on overclocking and its efforts to further enhance the performance of its parts are no longer in shade with its plans to introduce the SSD Overclocking feature. This technologically sophisticated feature which will allow users to overclock their SSDs will not only be available on the Ivy Brigde-E but also on all other desktops from Intel. The feature is being integrated with the corporation of the Intel XTU (Extreme Tuning Utility) which is the software application that allows users to share and find overclock settings from other users and fine tune the Intel K processor.
The Overclocking Knights have set a new overclocking record with the Intel Core i7-4770K retail processor. They overclocked the processor all the way up to 7068.52 MHz using the MSI Z87 XPOWER motherboard, which is MSI’s top of the line overclocking motherboard.
A Finnish group of overclockers called “The Stilt” have scored a world record overclock using AMD’s newest Richland architecture-based A10-6800K APU and ASUS’s F2A85-V Pro motherboard. Back in June the same overclocking group managed to score 8000.48 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz applying 2.008 volts to the CPU. The new world record set by the same group is 8203.01 MHz with a bus clock of 126.99 MHz, multiplier set at 63x and susprisingly a lower voltage of 1.968 volts applied to the CPU.
Intel does not seem to happy about motherboard manufactures finding a way around their restriction and is said to be releasing a firmware update for their H87/B85 motherboard chipsets. This firmware update would actively block the Non-Z OC feature from various manufacturers.
Like most other motherboard manufactures Biostar has put out a BIOS that enables overclocking on K-Series Haswell processors using their H87, B85 and H81 motherboards. Normally if you would want to overclock your K-Series CPU you would have to buy a Z87 motherboard, but with Biostar motherboards you do not have to!
ASRock was first then they were followed by ECS and now it looks like Gigabyte is joining the bunch by releasing a beta BIOS for its socket LGA1150 motherboards that are based on the H87 and B85 chipsets that will allow overclocking of Intel’s Core Haswell K-Series processors. Normally if you would want to overclock your K-Series CPU you would have to buy a Z87 motherboard, but with Gigabyte’s new beta BIOS you do not have to!
Following ASRock, ECS also has made it possible to overclock your Intel K-Series Haswell processor on H87, B85 and H81 motherboards. Normally if you would want to overclock your K-Series CPU you would have to buy a Z87 motherboard, but with ECS motherboards you do not have to!
There was a rumor in the air that only K-series CPUs and Z-family platform are capable of being over-clocked. The avant-garde company ASRock has broken the restraint with a thrilling new feature called the Non-Z OC. With the help of this feature, overclockers can install their K-series CPUs to ASRocks Fatal 1ty H87 performance or H87 and B85 chipsets motherboards and start off with the over-clocking immediately.
Last month NVIDIA released their GeForce GTX 780 graphics card and since then many different manufacturers have released non-reference and overclocked versions of the card. Galaxy unveiled their own non-reference GeForce GTX 780 HOF edition which featured a very cool all white PCB. Well HKEPC’s Mr. Wong has shattered records by overclocking the card past previous records!
