Luumi breaks Cinebench octacore world record

On EVGA Z390 Dark motherboard

The Finnish overclocker "Luumi" has broken the Cinebench 8-core world record running his processor at almost 7GHz, which was enough for 3142 points. The benchmark has been conducted using an Intel Core i9-9900K on an EVGA Z390 Dark motherboard and several liters of liquid nitrogen.

The Z390 Dark is a high-end motherboard, which is currently one of the more successful boards when it comes to extreme overclocking. The Z390 Dark is based on an E-ATX form factor and it comes with an armada of features and apparently this board is capable of performing excellently even under extreme conditions.

Layout wise there are three PCIe Gen 3.0 slots with steel reinforcements and one PCIe x4 slot. On the storage side we see two M.2 slots, eight SATA ports and a pair of USB headers placed on the PCB. The audio area has been reworked and EVGA added two big yellow caps which are supposed to help improving the overall audio quality.

EVGA says that the Z390 Dark features a 17-phase VRM design and additional 8-pin power connectors. Checking Geizhals we haven’t been able to find this board yet but as it’s a high-end product we’d expect it to be pretty expensive.
