MOST HEROIC FAILURE Pal­i­comp Lu­mi­nos­ity

Computer Active (UK) - - Reviews -

As frus­trated as we were bby Kabkaby Lak­lake pro­ces­sors, Pal­i­comp – one of the Uk-based firms that builds PCS based on th­ese com­po­nents – had an an­swer: over­clock­ing the i5-7600k chip to a sear­ing 5GHZ. Eye­brows were not so much raised as singed when our tests, de­signed to push PCS be­yond their com­fort zone, sent the pro­ces­sor to over 100°C be­fore it turned it­self off. It worked fine when slowed down a bit, as did all the other PCS we’ve seen from Pal­i­comp. Ah well – if we get a cold win­ter we can al­ways sit round it.
