American enthusiast Allen “Splave” Golibersuch (Allen Golibersuch) performed extreme overclocking of Intel’s chosen flagship – the Intel Core i9-12900KS processor with 16 cores and 24 threads. The enthusiast used liquid nitrogen and set several new world records on popular synthetic benchmarks.
The frequency record among the Alder Lake S processors has still not been broken. It has 7.6 GHz and belongs to the “normal” Intel Core i9-12900K model. By the way, this result was also set by Splave. The enthusiast could only overclock the selected flagship model Core i9-12900KS up to 7492 MHz. The stability of the chip at this frequency was preserved only when using three cores and disabled Hyper-Threading.
The enthusiast set new records in Cinebench 2003 with 16 active cores, a new record in Cinebench R23 for one active core and also in Geekbench 4 with 16 cores. In the first case, the chip showed a result of 12,777 points, in the second – 2080 points. In Geekbench 4, the Core i9-12900KS processor scored 100,675, the first six-digit result in this test. The previous record holder Core i9-12900K with 97,800 points was overtaken by Intel’s selective flagship by 2875 points.
For experiments, we used an ASRock Z690 Aqua OC motherboard and 16GB DDR5-6000 RAM.
It is very likely that in the near future the statistics of extreme overclocking of the Intel Core i9-12900KS will be actively replenished, since the publication of the corresponding results in the HWBot database was allowed only the day before.
