A little gem
Although it is expected that Kaby Lake-X is going to be launched very soon well-known overclocker Roman "der8auer" Hartung has found yet another little gem. During the "Performance Matters - Helium Night" at Computex Taipei, the overclocker der8auer was able to achieve a monstrously high 7'562 MHz overclock using the new Kaby Lake-X Core i7-7740K CPU and an ASUS Rampage VI Apex.
New record from der8auer
We have covered der8auer breaking records in the past and apparently the German overclocker Roman Hartung did it again. This time he has pushed a new AMD new Ryzen 5 1600X CPU to 5.9 GHz using an ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard and liquid nitrogen cooling. This overclock was achieved with a bus speed of 130 MHz and a multiplier of 45.5.
No benchmarks so far
Usually, when the US American overclocker Vince K|ngp|n Lucido posts an overclocking result it is something serious that is worth reporting. This time he used one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card and pushed the clock speeds beyond 3 GHz. Although he didn’t post any scores on HWBot or even in the Futuremark database for that matter, we’re pretty confident that we might see some very impressive scores appear rather sooner than later.
With the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
We have covered K|ngp|n breaking world records in the past and apparently the US American Vince Lucido did it again. This time he used the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card to raise the bar in Futuremark’s Time Spy benchmark even higher. The new world record mark is set with one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti pixel accelerator and it’s now beyond the 13K mark.
World record from der8auer
We have covered der8auer breaking world records in the past and apparently the German overclocker Roman Hartung did it again. This time he has pushed a new AMD new Ryzen 7 1800X CPU to 5.8 GHz using an ASUS CrossHair VI Hero motherboard and liquid nitrogen cooling. This overclock was achieved with a bus speed of 130 MHz and a multiplier of 44.5. Indirectly this confirms that AMD's Ryzen CPUs can be overclocked via the bus frequency as well.
With 4x NVIDIA Titan X Pascal
A few scores from Racoon and RULE
Yesterday plenty of new scores popped up on HWBot, which showed the overclocking potential of Intel’s Kaby Lake processors. Also our own overclockers Mike "racoon" Buchroither and Franco "RULE" Valtulina have managed to overclock the new high-end mainstream CPU from Intel reaching very respectable frequencies and scores. Both overclockers have tested the new CPUs on four benchmarks using several liters of liquid nitrogen.

44230 MB/s in MaxxMem read
Raises the score over 48K
Comes with a thicker PCB
For significantly lower CPU temperatures
While mounting a CPU cooler directly on the CPU that has been delidded is mostly reserved to experienced users and overclockers the gain is undeniable so it does not come as a surprise that there are both products for delidding as well as instructions for the process, such as the one from SiliconLottery for Direct Die Mounting of a Broadwell-E CPU.

Our MIFCOM Ocaholic overclocking team has been hard at work in overclocking and benchmarking three Geforce GTX 1080 graphics cards for a few days and yesterday, Racoon managed to get a nice score in Catzilla benchmark, getting him to third place on HWBOT.org.
