In the hands of professional Aroged, 13th Gen Intel Core processors can break the 8GHz mark. Of course, such overclocking is not complete without extreme types of cooling, such as a liquid nitrogen evaporator. However, good results can be achieved using liquid cooling systems.
Hungarian overclocker Codiee1337 excelled in Cinebench R23. He was able to “fire up” the Core i9-13900KF processor to a frequency of 6.2 GHz, which made it possible to complete the benchmark with indicators 2352/41940 points (Single/Multi Core). What is most interesting, the enthusiast did not even resort to manual overclocking, using the AI Overclocking feature on the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex motherboard.
The test platform also included 32 GB of DDR5-6000 (CL36) RAM manufactured by G.Skill, and the processor was cooled by the ready-made Corsair iCUE H150I RGB Elite LSS with a 360 mm radiator. In addition, the regular clamping mechanism of the processor was replaced by a frame CPU Contact Frame from Thermal Grizzly.
We remind you that official sales of the 13th generation Intel Core processors (Raptor Lake-S) will start tomorrow.
