Thanks to a liquid nitrogen dissipation system and the GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard, a Taiwanese overclocker has pushed its Intel i9-11900K up to 7.31 GHz, beating all previous records and securing, for now, the world first.
The motherboard Z590 AORUS TACHYON di GIGABYTE with the latest processor Intel i9-11900K of 11th generation and an LN2 liquid nitrogen cooling system for heat dissipation have set the new overclock world record by bringing the frequency to 7314 MHz, beating the previous Super Pi 1M and Super Pi 32M world records. The quality of the components together with the experience of the Taiwanese overclocker HiCookie have allowed to overcome the technological limits once again.
The GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard is equipped with many features designed for extreme overclockers, which promise overclockers extreme results with easier interfacing, establishing the quality of GIGABYTE’s overclocking proposals on Z590 motherboards. Jackson Hsu, Director of GIGABYTE Channel Solutions Product Development, comments:
With the assistance of the engineering design power and management team, GIGABYTE’s R&D team is able to turn that wild creativity into mass production. The GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard is the masterpiece born of these innovative concepts in a period of reflection and demonstrates GIGABYTE’s strong research and development strength on the world-record LN2 overclocking it has made. Of course, we will also be using the Z590 AORUS TACHYON to create better overclocking performance, and I can’t wait to see overclockers around the world can use this motherboard to break more world records!
Intel i9-11900K: il top per l’overclock
The Intel i9-11900K is the top of the line for the 11th generation Intel Rocket Lake series. The chip presents 8 core e 16 thread. We will also see in action 16 MB of L3 cache (2 MB per core) and 4 MB of L2 cache (512 KB per core). The CPU will present a maximum boost clock of 5.2 GHz (on a single core), while the Boost frequency on all cores will be maintained at 4.8 GHz. Not bad anyway. The chip also features Thermal Velocity Boost which should provide a 100 MHz jump in the maximum clock rate. This should lead to a 5.3 GHz single-core boost clock when conditions make it possible. However we have fewer cores than the previous generation, this is because Intel Rocket Lake’s Cypress Cove is directly derived from Tiger Laker which offers at most 8 physical cores.
La CPU Intel Core i9-11900K presenta un power limit of the 1st stage of 125 W as we are used to seeing by now, while the power limit of the 2nd stage or PL2 is set at 250 W. This will certainly be due to the very high clock frequencies that the new Intel Rocket Lake CPUs can reach, albeit for a limited period of time.

GIGABYTE Z590 AORUS TACHYON was designed to break the world record. GIGABYTE’s R&D team has devoted a lot of resources to make this motherboard more in line with users’ needs. Z590 AORUS TACHYON adopts 12 + 1 direct phase power supply, which each of them can contain up to 100 Amps with DrMOS power stage design to provide complete power management. L’VRM area implements a full tantalum capacitor matrix, which allows for a lower overall temperature and more stable overclocking. Also, the last solution Reactive Armor uses an integrated one-piece metal heat sink to provide a range of wider heat dissipation of the MOSFET, while the multiple fins and grooved surface provide twice the dissipation area than the traditional design which greatly improves the convection and conduction of heat by allowing more airflow to pass through the heat sink.
In addition, CPU zone 2 Oz PCB and unique 2DIMM Daisy Chain memory routing with a anti-interference design satisfies users with greater flexibility on memory configuration and performance. The memory circuits are embedded in the ground layers of the PCB while the outer metal layer of the PCB reduces electromagnetic interference so that users can enjoy more stable and high-speed overclocking RAM performance. The unique overclocking kit of sturdy overclocking buttons and detection functions allows overclockers to push the limits with ease.
In addition to the unique designs mentioned above, the Z590 AORUS TACHYON motherboard is equipped with all the known features of GIGABYTE and the advanced configuration of Intel 2.5Gb Ethernet, WIFI 6E 802.11ax, interfaccia USB 3.2 Gen2x2 TYPE-C and PCIe 4.0 expansion interface. Meanwhile, the revamped BIOS interface with tecnologia Smart Fan 6 displays key information such as clock speed, memory, storage devices, fan status / settings, temperature control and other important hardware information in a more intuitive and easy to use way. With the addition QFLASH makes it much easier for users to update their system BIOS via USB flash without installing a processor, memory, and VGA cards.
