Intel Core i7-7700k @ 7GHZ

We don't hear too much about the overclocking community these days, but the fact that someone was able to get their Intel Core i7-7700k CPU running at 7 GHz (stock is 4.2 Ghz) they get a front page mention. Of course you'll need a liquid nitrogen setup and you'll have to disable some of the features and some of the cores to make this happen, but hitting 7 Ghz will give you some serious bragging rights. DigitalTrends has the full story.

While eager customers still have to wait a little while to get their hands on Intel’s latest Core i7 chips, a few samples of the desktop i7-7700K have been sent out to overclocking professionals over the past few weeks. Using a sample chip, one professional overclocker managed to push the i7-7700K past the 7GHz threshold, and while the overclock was reportedly bench stable, it’s not exactly for the faint of heart.
