HyperX Sets Overclocking World Record Mark at 4500 MHz, Partners with HWBOT

HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced its memory was overclocked to 4500 MHz, the highest frequency in the world. The mark was set by overclocker "Hicookie" of GIGABYTE. He achieved the frequency using one 4 GB HyperX DDR3 2933MHz module (not yet available) on the new GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC FORCE LN2 motherboard.

The frequency is posted on HWBOT, the premier site for PC enthusiasts looking for news, tips and information on overclocking, benchmarks and competitions. Beginning June 1, HyperX officially became the newest partner with HWBOT. Together with HWBOT, HyperX looks forward to continuing its association with the overclocking community.

On June 5, during COMPUTEX TAIPEI, HyperX will hold its "HOT" HyperX OC Takeover competition. Overclockers from around the world will compete for $10,000 (USD) in total prize money for the top scores in Maximum Memory Frequency, SuperPi 32M and XTU with a secret processor to be revealed at the event. During the remainder of 2014, HyperX will hold four online regional HOT competitions on HWBOT.org leading up to a $15,000 World Finals competition during 2015 International CES.

HyperX is the high-performance product division of Kingston Technology encompassing high-speed DDR3 memory, SSDs, USB Flash drives and headsets.

This stuff is for the technically challenged, gullible PC fanbois who haven't bothered to test and see for themselves that desktop PCs running 1600 MHz. DDR3 is NOT a system bottleneck and thus faster RAM offers no tangible system performance gains running real apps. APUs are the minor exception where up to 2133 MHz. helps a little. Many review sites including Tom's and Anandtech have done extensive testing to prove the above.

The RAM companies love to dupe the technically challenged for great financial profit.
