This week, American enthusiast L0ud_sil3nc3 managed to overclock the Intel Xeon X5698 to a shuddering 6162 MHz. The CPU was overclocked using liquid nitrogen to prevent any heating problems whatsoever.
The frequency of the processor was increased to a ground breaking 6126 Mhz. This is a new record for dual core processors in the overclocking club. This also goes on to demonstrate the true potential of the Xeon series. The base clocking speed of the processor is 4400 MHz, making the leap a staggering 1762. The CPU however failed to impress in the Cinebench R11.5. Over here, L0ud_sil3nc3 only managed to score only 5.3 points. This makes it only the fourth place in a subset of dual solutions. The frequency achieved here was 6192 MHz.
