Sandy Bridge Overclocking Hall of Fame

Overclocking Hall of Fame

Here we will rank the best overclocks that were achieved on our sandy bridge boards.
There are two categories.
The first one requires your overclock to be fully stable, and as such must go through an intense 8-hour burning session using the Prime95 Blend test.
The second category does not require your CPU to be stable at all, so we can expect some really exotic results.

To enter, simply submit your overclock in the following format:

Clock: 4500MHz | CPU: i7-2600K | Batch: #===== | vCore: 1,400 | Max temp: 82° | Cooling: Stock AIR | [Your Name]

Add a screenshot that proves your overclock by showing a validated CPUz window. If you want to enter in the stable category, also show the Prime95 run in the screenshot, where we can clearly read that the test has ran for at least 8 hours.
ZX-S & C64 are still my favourites ;-)

Hi PeterT

Thanks for submission, you are the first one!

I think this is not correct CPU-Z validation window as it doesn't show the CPU's speed. You need to place the screenshot showing the speed from CPU-Z (after pressing "Validate" button).
And kindly use up to 768 pix width for pics, as the current one is not clear enough.
If having higher width screenshot you can use the code as described here:

Yeah you need to show CPU-z cpu tab or a link to the validation page. Not bad, although I have seen better! Keep clocking!
