AMD Ryzen 9 7950X in overclocking test
AMD Zen4 claiming world records with AIO cooler.
The flagship 16-core AMD Raphael CPU needs no exotic coolers to break world records. In total, four records have now been broken by Sampson and blueleader who got the green light to share their Ryzen 9 7950X results. The fact that all four have been broken with the latest CPU is not impressive, but the fact that none used liquid nitrogen certainly is.
Using either AORUS X670E Xtreme, ASUS ROG Crosshair X670E Extreme, ASRock’s X670E Taichi or MSI X670E MEG ACE motherboards and Corsair H115i liquid cooler AIO cooler, both overclockers managed to break four records: Cinebench R15, R20, R23 and 7-zip.
The CPUs have been running at 5.4 to 5.5 GHz with all cores with temperatures between 87°C to 108 °C if Benchmate data is to be considered. The data also shows that Ryzen 9 7950X has been running with 226W to 244W max power, so within the maximum allowed range for AM5 socket.
Ryzen 9 7950X world records:
- Cinebench R23 – 40,498 pts nT
- 5.40 GHz—ASROCK X670E Taichi—32GB Kingston DDR5
- Cinebench R20 – 15,771 pts nT
- 5.35 GHz—GIGABYTE X670E AORUS Master—32GB G.SKILL DDR5
