Intel Devil’s Canyon CPU overclocked at 5.5GHz on air, 6.4GHz with LN2

Devils_Canyon_improvementIntel was very excited when it talked about its Haswell-refresh CPU codenamed’ Devil’s Canyon, and the reason was pretty clear during the presentation. There were two major improvements on the new LGA1150 package: better thermal interface material (Next-Generation Polymer Thermal Interface Material- NGPTIM) and also added few capacitors for smoother delivery. It seems that the improvements have paid of, as the existing HWBOT leaderboard for the Intel OC Challenge Computex 2014 shows that its i7-4790K that has a base clock of 4GHz with 4.4GHz via turbo boost was able to spread its legs as long as 5.5GHz on air and a very impressive 6.4GHz with LN2 at the time of writing.

Its also very interesting to see that Intel is taking a good amount of interest in overclocking more than before by making such implementations. Seeing that its 20th anniversary Pentium processor is also an unlocked processor, it looks like Intel wants provide something more for the PC master race!
