Intel Devil’s Canyon 4790K hits 5.2GHz on normal ambient and Pentium G3258 does 5.1GHz too
We told you a bit about Intel’s new CPU, Devil’s Canyon, but after we got back home from Computex we also started to play with Intel Core i7 4790K, but also with the Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition. Well, to sum it up, we are preparing a huge article for you guys, that will leave the overclockers drooling, as well as the air-cooled aficionados. I don’t want to spoil your surprise in any way, so I will not say more about that at the moment.
What I do want to tell you is that we did some preliminary air-cooled tests, and things are looking pretty good. And when I say air-cooled, I mean normal ambient, 25 oC, not chilled air or anything like that. We tested 4790K and Pentium G3258 using a GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-SOC Force, a good air-cooler (Noctua NH-D14) together with two 120mm fans (CooLink SwiF 120P).
Bellow you can see the highest Prime stable clocks, the highest SuperPi 1M and the highest validation we did so far on normal ambient air-cooling. I would suggest you stay close to LAB501 next week, because you will see much more crazy things!
