It appears that the AMD Ryzen Threadripper will be quite popular among overclockers, at least judging from the score that Alva managed to get at the Capsaicin event at Siggraph 2017.
Now known under his Lucky_Noob call-sign, Alva managed to hit 5,187MHz and get a Cinebench R15 score of 4122 points. This is also currently a new world record for a 16-core CPU.
Since Alva had to use a rather low memory speed of 2133MHz in order to get a better CPU core overclocking, we are quite sure that there will be even higher overclocking records in the near future.
Of course, these scores and frequencies are only reserved for those with a lot of LN2 but at least shows that there is a lot of overclocking potential in AMD's Threadripper HEDT CPUs.
