(PhysOrg.com) -- With the release of the Intel Core i7, there is excitement every where about overclocking records being broken. The ASUS Rampage II Extreme motherboard supports the newest Intel platform and has achieve a overclocking at 5510.9 MHz.
The Rampage II Extreme motherboard utilizes a TweakIt tool that resembles joystick like control on the motherboard. This tool enables users to make real time changes to their system´s core frequency, voltage as well as other parameters. All these changes are hardware parameter changes and is not software dependent.
The hardware tweaking is accompanied by real-time monitoring of information such as system frequency, that lets users implement on-the-fly modifications during CPU testing to archive high benchmark performance.
