Default ASUS First, MSI Second to Hit 7GHz on Intel's i7-3770K

A couple of weeks ago, we posted that GIGABYTE's hicookie became the first overclocker to hit 7GHz on Intel's current-gen Ivy Bridge processors, and in effect broke the previous world record. Since then, we've been informed that this wasn't correct. Instead, both ASUS and MSI both hit 7GHz before hicookie, so I thought I'd give both companies a shout-out for it.

Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
