Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell CPU Overclocked to 7 GHz

All central processing unit series have a so-called flagship CPU, and for the Haswell collection, that highest-end chip is called Core i7-4770K.

Logically, I'd expect the CPU to have to be launched before any overclocking records are set.

Then again, this isn't the first time a chip gets put through its paces prior to its debut (June 2013).
The Core i7-4770K processor was overclocked to 7 GHz by an overclocker with the handle "rtiueuiurei."

The exact clock speed was of 7012.65 MHz, achieved by setting a base clock of 91.07 MHz multiplied by 77.0x.

The core voltage was pretty high too, at 2.56V. At least that's what CPU-Z says.

The PC that achieved the performance used 2 GB of DDR3 RAM and an LGA 1150 motherboard. No other details are known.
