Even before the official launch of the Core i9-14900KS, a group of enthusiasts managed to overclock the new processor to 9117 MHz, setting another world record. The event, which involved the well-known Swedish overclocker Elmor, took place at ASUS headquarters in Taipei.

The experiments consumed 600 liters of liquid nitrogen and 100 liters of liquid helium. What was achieved with such a resource of the cooler?

The experiments were conducted on a platform with an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z790 APEX ENCORECore motherboard. Through gradual iterations, the Core i9-14900KS frequency was increased to 9117 MHz. This required raising the CPU supply voltage to 1.8 V and cooling the chip crystal to -231C.

9117 MHz is a new frequency record for desktop processors. The previous one – 9044 MHz – was also set by Elmor with the Core i9-14900KF. Now the next bar has been raised by an additional +73 MHz.

Along with setting the frequency record, ElmorLabs enthusiasts managed to update the best performance in three overclocking disciplines:

  • PiFast: 6,79 c
  • SuperPi 1M: 3,768 c
  • PYPRIME 32B: 97,596 c

The available video footage allows you to feel the atmosphere that prevails when new overclocking records are achieved.
