Intel Core i9-14900KS Broke Overclocking World Record With 9.1GHz

Intel Core i9-14900KS Broke Overclocking World Record With 9.1GHz 32

After many rounds of leaks and rumors, Intel is finally making the Core i9-14900KS official. As with tradition, the launch of the latest (and the final) KS-series chip of the Core i9 era has brought Team Blue another world record courtesy of overclockers from ASUS.

The Taiwanese company announced that it has collected four new world records, including the most important of them all – frequency. Utilizing the ROG Maximus Z790 Apex Encore motherboard, Elmor of the ASUS overclocking team has managed to achieve 9117.75MHz, raising the ceiling previously set by the same team who achieved 9043.92MHz on the Core i9-14900KF several months ago. The current record makes it a three-peat since the 9GHz barrier was broken by Core i9-13900K, replacing a decade-long record prior.

Aside from the clock speed record, SafeDisk from the same overclocking team has taken three additional world records, including PiFast (6.79 seconds), SuperPI 1M (3.768 seconds), and PYPrime 32B (97.596 seconds). According to the published video, liquid helium was used in the attempt, which is a more exotic coolant compared to liquid nitrogen – though it allows even lower temperatures for greater stability in extreme overclocking conditions.

Overclocking aside, the Core i9-14900KS is a binned version of the flagship silicon that ekes out an extra 200MHz of clock speeds over the regular Core i9-14900K. At 6.2GHz, it is the highest-clocking processor currently available on the market. Notably, MSI is offering a BIOS option to push it even further with a 6.4GHz auto-overclock.

You can watch the moment the team breaks the world record via the video below:
