With an ample supply of liquid nitrogen chilling his components to -197c, Swiss Overclocker Christian Ney has shattered the world record for DDR memory frequency pushing his G.Skill Extreme RipjawsZ RAM to 3,736 MHz.
Before Mr. Ney’s successful attempt the previous record stood at 3,600 MHz.
“It was a lot of fun while tweaking G.Skill memory,” Mr. Ney said. “You can feel the unlimited potential and always want to go higher and higher.”
According to data uploaded to HWBot, the RipjawsZ stick had latency timings of 11 (CAS)-13(RAS to CAS)-13(RAS Precharge)-36(tRAS).
The system used by Mr. Ney in the attempt was real motley crew of components: a Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard, 60GB OCZ Vertex 2 solid state drive, X-Series 750W power supply, and a Bush-era Voodoo3 2000 PCI videocard.
