Even though the Pentium E6500K processor with unlocked multiplier aimed only at Chinese market did seem to be a solution for those, who would like to have higher-than-expected performance, overclockers with no limits in mind have managed to achieve performance records using the new chips.

According to Expreview, an overclocker named DFORDOG from has successfully overclocked Intel’s Pentium E6500K processor to a whopping 6GHz, which proves its great overclocking potential once again. With the help of liquid nitrogen, DFORDOG managed to hit 6GHz using Biostar TP45 HP mainboard, K|ngp|n F1’s cooler and 2GB memory kit from Geil, reports Expreview web-site.

The dual-core Intel Pentium E6500K processor operates at 2.93GHz, features 2MB of L2 cache and utilizes 1066MHz processor system bus. The chip is made using 45nm process technology, thus, can operate at very high clock-speeds; however, traditional overclocking would require high-end mainboards supporting PSBs with higher than 1066MHz frequencies. With unlocked multiplier, end-users may increase only the clock-speed of the CPU and do not have to stress other components of the system, e.g., mainboard or core-logic set.

Intel did not comment on the news-story.
