If AMD can be making overclocking records, so can Intel. Apparently a renowned overclocker better known as HiCookie, took his Intel Core i7 3770K processor to a mammoth 7.03 GHz on liquid nitrogen  on a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to claim the world’s highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency validation.

Populating all 4 memory slots with the G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory, he took the memory speeds up to 3280 MHz which is also a new record that too thanks to GIGABYTE’s on board fine memory tuning capabilities.

The records can be validated here and here.

Check out the press release after the break.

PRESS RELEASE

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd., a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, today announced the record highest validated CPU clock speed on the Intel Core i7 3770K processor using a GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard, as well as the new world record highest DDR3 memory speed using the GIGABYTE Z77X-U5H motherboard.

The 7.0 GHz milestone was surpassed using an Intel 3rd generation Core i7 3770k processor (aka Ivy Bridge) by renowned overclocker HiCookie, pushing the GIGABYTE Z77X-UD3H motherboard to a fully validated 7.03 GHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. This is regarded as the current #1 highest Ivy Bridge CPU frequency and a world record according to respected global overclocking website HWBot.org.

Additionally, HiCookie has broken the current highest memory speed for the Intel Ivy Bridge platform, reaching an unprecedented 3280MHz with all 4 memory slots populated using the GA-Z77X-UD5H motherboards and G.Skill Trident X DDR3-2800 memory – also a new world record. This new record was achieved thanks in part to GIGABYTE’s engineering prowess and tried-and-true memory tuning capabilities.

“These new world records highlight our belief that top notch quality and design deliver truly world-class, record breaking performance,” commented Tim Handley, Deputy Director of Motherboard Marketing at GIGABYTE. “These new performance achievements come at a very opportune time as we prepare to introduce our next generation high-performance CPU power zone at Computex 2012, and we’re expecting even better results from motherboard models with this new feature!”
