CPU Frequency: Hall of Fame

Hi, Everyone,

While reading this article, I learned about world records. As you may know, I’m new to Overclocking and I simply didn’t know about world records. From my old days, I remember going over 5Ghz was a major achievement.

That said, I’m happy to see that the good old AMD FX CPUs dominate the Top 20 list!

I have a few questions for you:

1 – When shooting for a world record, does the voltage matter? Meaning, does the voltage have to be as low as possible while aiming for the higher clock speed?

2 – When speaking of the world record, are we referring to the Guinness World Record?

3 – Lastly, which tools and/or websites are considered “official” by overclockers?

They have to raise the voltage quite a bit to reach those frequencies. That's why liquid nitrogen is required for cooling. They're basically cooking the processor.

I am no oc expert, i have only overclocked with air and water.

Cinebench is a good tool to quantify your cpu performance.

Related question - other than going for some kind of world record. What would be the feasible computing advantage to run a CPU as 8GhZ consistently?

I just want to see how the new Ryzen Chips overclock. I know AMD is speaking about memory overclocking being great on Zen4 but I want to see CPU frequencies.

Thank you, guys! I'm learning! 

And I'm also interested in the answer to the question by @Key-J ...
