Asian tech site HKEPC put Intel's 14nm Core i7-5775 "Broadwell" chip on the test bench and found it to be a pretty decent overclocker.
The Core i7-5775 has a stock frequency of 3.3GHz (with 3.7GHz Turbo) and the overclocker managed to push it to 5002.41MHz using a core voltage of 1.419V, the ASRock Z97 OC Formula motherboard and nothing but air cooling. The system wasn't stable enough for benchmarking but he did get it to boot into Windows 7 to take a CPU-Z screenshot.
Overclocked at 4802.32MHz the system was stable and finished 32M wPrime in 4.399 seconds.
