Core 2 Duo E8600 hits 6.25GHz with liquid nitrogen

If we're to believe the latest whispers from rumor sites, Intel will add a Core 2 Duo E8600 to its range of processors on August 10. Supposedly, the chip will cost $266 and feature a pair of 45nm Penryn cores clocked at 3.33GHz. Notorious Taiwanese overclocker Coolaler grabbed an E8600 ahead of the launch, and he's been able to push it a tad higher than that.

Going by the screenshots in the associated Coolaler.com news post, the overclocker's Core 2 Duo E8600 engineering sample successfully hit a staggering 6.25GHz—almost twice its stock clock speed. Achieving that phenomenal overclock involved a combination of liquid nitrogen, a 1.936V core voltage, and a DFI LanParty UT P35-T2R motherboard with its front-side bus cranked up to 625.4MHz (that's an "effective" 2501MHz, considering the quad-pumped nature of Intel's front-side bus).

When paired with 4GB of 1251MHz DDR2 memory, Coolaler apparently completed a 19-iteration Super PI 1M run in just under 7.3 seconds. Impressive, to say the least, although liquid nitrogen isn't exactly an everyday PC cooling solution.



:O

wowee, Intel should make a quad core outta that, or have they?

Its on its way. I think it is the E0 stepping rather than the C0 stepping.

That chip will not last. I would be expecting a 4.2ghz clock on air easy with the E8600, which is still good, but would it be worth it over say an E8500. I mean what they achieved was MASSIVE, but that chip has been taken to dominatrix level.

Duck and cal930 from Team Japan are already doing 6.4GHz with the E8600 - coolaler's behind the pace to be honest when it comes to outright max. While 6.25GHz is still a solid result, there's been a few doing 6.3+GHz and coolaler tends to do the first release 'wow' and then fade =/
