    On 27th February 2012, the highest DDR3 memory frequency record was smashed again by the well-known Swiss overclocker, Christian Ney. Using G.SKILL extreme RipjawsZ memory kit, Christian Ney has achieved the astonishing score of DDR3 3736MHz with 4GB high capacity memory stick. “It was a lot of fun while tweaking G.SKILL memory. You can feel the unlimited potential and always want to go higher and higher” said by Christian Ney.

    The record for the highest memory frequency has been validated by HWBOT, the widely recognized authority in the field of overclocking. For more detail, please refer to this page.

    1.408V @ 1.6ghz for the llano? Wut?

    And I've always wondered what that BS timings table is for in CPU-Z?

    It should be the SPD readings, i.e. what the manufacturer of the stick put in the SPD.

    Llano is a killer chip. The lack of cache hurts it alot in many things, but in other things, it's damn good.

    And to me, there is no surprise that G.Skill 2400 MHz DIMMs were used, either.

    That Gigabyte board is amazingly good, too. I reviewed it HERE.


    All in all, I'm not surprised, except that it took this long.

    Why not submerging whole PC in liquid helium?

    under Helium, the board would warp and probably not work right.

    Because some components simply cannot run that cold. Capacitors for example may have trouble at extreme temps due to the materials used to keep the metal plates inside them apart. Plastic parts would become brittle and easy to damage, And anything using a standard gauge wire would be cold enough to be considered delicate.

    You also have other factors, How would you maintain a bath of Liquid helium keeping costs down, and keep connectivity to the important parts of the motherboard so you can still tweak settings. If you need to adjust, or reconnect components you also have to bring the motherboard back out of the liquid helium..

    Finally that much liquid helium or any liquid gas for that matter in a confined space (room) could be dangerous. As the helium could displace the oxygen... And you would perish.

    llano gets K10.5 cores @32nm...

    I hate beating a dead horse, but this dead horse needs more beatings!
