12/22/2022 at 2:21 p.m. by Oliver Jäger – The Asus overclocking team was able to overclock a Core i9-13900K to over 9 GHz. The temperature is said to have been minus 250 degrees Celsius, which the extreme overclockers achieved with liquid helium. Asus also confirmed that the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex board holds the most overclocking records at 14.
Intel’s current top CPU Core i9-13900K has once again become a record breaker, as the Asus overclocking team recently proved with the extreme overclockers Elmorlabs and Skatterbencher from Sweden and Belgium. Because the Raptor Lake flagship was overclocked to over 9 GHz, which is a new world record in every respect. The Asus team accomplished this with extremely low temperatures of minus 250 degrees Celsius, which were brought about with the help of liquid helium. A slightly modified ROG Maximus Z790 Apex mainboard with improved signaling and VRMs served as the substructure.
Over 9 GHz on one core
The extremely high clock was not reached across all cores, but only across one of the eight performance cores. The efficiency cores are said to have been completely deactivated. Interestingly, Elmorlabs is said to have set this record exactly two months after his previous world record. At that time he overclocked the Core i9-13900K to 8,812 MHz, but with liquid nitrogen.
The world record was captured in two videos, one by Intel and the other by Skatterbencher. So if you want to get more background information about the extremely cooled and extremely overclocked Core i9-13900K, you can do so there.

Asus also pointed out via Twitter that not only the Core i9-13900K shines with world records, but also the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex motherboard used by the manufacturer. According to Asus, the board has now been involved in 14 world overclocking records, making it a record holder itself.
