XtremeLabs overclockers have set a new overclocking record by overclocking the Intel Celeron D 347 processor from 3.06GHz to a whopping 8199.5MHz, the highest clockspeed ever reached by overclockers that has been validated by CPU-Z. The lack of benchmarks suggests the LN2-cooled chip wasn't stable enough for benchmarking though.
Intel Celeron D 347 processor, which is based on the renowned NetBurst micro-architecture, is made using 65nm process technology and officially works at 3.06GHz. However, with the help of modified DFI LanParty UT P35 (Intel P35, revision A2), OCZ Technology memory and a lot of liquid nitrogen overclocker TiN from reached 8199.5MHz clock-speed on the central processing unit.
