Now, any results should be taken with a pinch of salt. No two CPUs overclock the same so anyone saying Kaby Lake is a great overclocker just because their one sample is a daemon of an overclocker simply doesn't grasp the overclocking landscape particularly well. It's a lottery, pure and simple.

However, we managed to get our sample to 5.1GHz - the best result we've seen for an age and even better than we managed with Sandy Bridge.

Sure, this did need a hefty 1.44V and temperatures were edging into the 90s using Prime95's small FFTs test for stress testing with a Corsair H105 CPU cooler, but there is a glimmer of hope here that we may be dealing with a rather decent overclocker when it comes to Kaby Lake.

5Ghz possible. Even on same voltage you can get +250Mhz. Looks good. No wonder why this is a homerun on the mobile front.

I guess its better than my old 2600k...... But not so much. My old 2600k took 1.5v to reach 5ghz (not daily run but game stable). But the stock clock on that was far lower..... Quite a bit of voltage for a CPU 6 years later just to reach 5.1ghz and whos to say that is stable enough for day to day operations.

I just know my 6700k does 4.5ghz at 1.28v all day and took me all of 5 minutes to find stable settings. I am glad I didnt wait for KL.

14nm+ does what it's supposed to do, deliver higher frequencies at a given voltage, as reflected in the stock clocks.

And scales like shit. I guess 5ghz is a "win" these days with 4.2ghz stock clock. YAY! Less than 20% overclock on a good chip.

I bet we see most chips at 4.7ghz.
