It'll launch when hell freezes over, because that's the environment you'll need to run at 7Ghz.

I would like to know what type of memory he's using?

4000Mhz with those timings... Shit yeah!

At 1.95 - 2.05 volts, mind you. This is often done on air too, for short benchmarks and binning purposes.

On paper the EVGA Z390 DARK looks better than the Apex board.

Only planning on overclocking an Intel 6-core so this board should be more than adequate.

Placed on the purchase list. :)

Thanks crazyeyesreaper

I wouldn't expect it to be much different.

Air with those volts isn't too bad :) Used to run that and more through the DDR3 ram when I used to benchmark, was fun :)

I just wonder if it would be more efficient since compared to the full sized OCF, it's meant to be a little better :) Maybe that's another job and test for Luumi :)

OOps. I thought he meant the CPU, not the RAM... haha. Yeah, you can do that... buuuuuuuuuut...

He may have more luck on the memory side of things as that tiny little think and its short traces do help.
