Default Intel Sandy Bridge Overclocked to 5Ghz

As the K-series of processors from Intel have an unlocked multiplier, we’re taken back to the early days of overclocking before processors had a multiplier lock. This was a feature implemented to prevent fraudulent sale of overclocked processors, or at least that’s how the story goes. Intel brought this feature back with its K-series of processors, and this will potentially be a lifeline to overclockers using the LGA-1155 platform.

With regards to the screen shots posted over at the Coolaler forums, well, a poster by the name of JCornell has provided a few screenshots of an early Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7 2600K which has a stock clock speed of 3.4GHz with a BClk of 100MHz. To give us an idea of the stock performance, screenshots were posted of it running SuperPI 1M in 10.031 seconds, and the CPU also scored 6.35 in Cinebench 11.5. These are pretty impressive numbers on their own, but it gets much better.
