G.Skill DDR4 RAM Breaks 5Ghz – 5.5Ghz Overclock Record Set
“Toppc” originally broke the RAM overclocking record on an MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC motherboard, overclocking just past the 5Ghz barrier. However, Toppc has now raised the stakes, overclocking another set of G.Skill memory to 5.5Ghz on Intel’s new X299 platform.
This now stands to be the highest speed that a DDR4 module has ever achieved, G.Skill still sitting at the forefront of the tech.
Like before, Toppc paired the memory with an MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard, with an Intel X-series processor. Of course, LN2 was used to cool the memory and test bed.
“We are seeing amazing overclocking potential for this newly released hardware and we believe that more overclocking benchmark records will be achieved very soon by professional overclockers worldwide,” G.Skill’s Tequila Huang said.
While G.Skill didn’t specify what memory was used, the press release suggests that it was with a stick of Trident Z RGB memory.
