Intel Sandy Bridge-E can do 5GHz on air?

Posted on Wednesday, October 26 2011 @ 16:47:02 CEST by

OCWorkBench heard Intel's Sandy Bridge-E CPUs can overclock pretty well, the site claims the chip can achieve clockspeeds of up to 5GHz with plain old air cooling.
Today, we just witnessed an overclocked LGA2011 processor. The processor runs on the Intel X79 Express chipset mainboard with a regular heatsink. We observe the temperature at IDLE, it reads around 45 degrees.

A check on the CPU monitor shows that the CPU is running at a multiplier of 41X with CPU CLK set to 120MHz. This gives us a reading of 4.92GHz. The memory was running DDR3-2400 at CAS 10. CPU Vcore was 1.51v.
