EXTREME OVERCLOCKING CHALLENGE
Think those new Kaby Lake desktop CPUs resist overclocking? No. Think again. Industry sources tell us the chip is happy to reach 5GHz with water-cooling, and at the warm-up for HWbot’s extreme overclocking event, we saw 7GHz. Granted, the overclocking superstars at this CES event were using liquid nitrogen to cool down the silicon and ratchet up the clocks. But one still has to marvel at just how far these PCs can be pushed.
