An overclocked and watercooled Ryzen 9 7950X sets records

The 16-core / 32-thread Zen 4, cooled by an AIO watercooling kit, stands out in several benchmarks.

A Ryzen 9 7950X, the flagship of the Ryzen 7000s, has been overclocked to 5.4/5.5 GHz across all of its cores, while being cooled by a simple AIO kit. The processor was thus able to set four new records in the 16-core / 32-thread chip category.


The Ryzen prevailed in Cinebench R23 with a score of 40,498 points; it beats the previous record of 40,412 points held by a Core i9-12900KS overclocked to 7 GHz and kept cool with liquid nitrogen. In Cinebench R20, the Ryzen 9 7950X edged out the Ryzen 9 5950X, whose performance also involved liquid nitrogen cooling; same in Cinebench R15. Finally, in 7-Zip, the Ryzen Zen 4 also outclasses its ancestor, which was again illustrated under liquid nitrogen.

According to data from Benchmate, the temperatures hovered between 87°C and 108°C, while the powers were between 226 W and 244 W.

Lisa Su will be on stage at CES 2023: what to expect from this intervention?
