MSI Announces DDR4 Memory Overclocking World Record @ 5902 MHz on MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC Motherboard

MSI today announced that their in-house overclocker Kovan Yang has broken the world overclocking record for DDR4 memory. The record-breaking feat was achieved with a pair of HyperX Predator DDR4 memory modules paired with MSI's MPG Z390I GAMING EDGE AC motherboard, with a little help from liquid nitrogen cooling.

The overclock was achieved with some compromises: the Intel Core i9-9900K processor that powered the system was running in a pared-down configuration with only a pair of active cores, and the DDR4 memory was working in single-channel mode with a single 8 GB stick and highly relaxed timings of 31-63-6363-2. While this isn't usable in your regular machine, that's not the point of these extreme overclocking feats, anyway. The goal is to showcase component quality and stability whilst working way beyond specifications.

6363 speed is very slow. DAMN.

That is fast, but when is DDR5 coming? I hope next year

That is one hell of a memory controller on that CPU... and the memory is outstanding too! :D

Get a result that will be at normal settings and will be really respectful and not with minimal CPU usage, You could call a cheat result . Such results are not worth mentioning as they are not close to reality .

It is reality, because it happened. I think you mean not practical for daily use. This is no more of a cheat than engineering sample cars that aren't meant for the roads but for testing what's possible, and often the results trickle down into retail in both cases.

Big misinformation : 5902 is not speed it is Data transfer rate. By this logic we can say that i9 9900K runs at 10GHz, 2 Threads on a logical core, so 2*5GHz=10GHz.
So speed should be 2951MHz not 5902, if you say data rate then 5902 MT/s or 5.902GT/s.
Speed and Data rate is not same.
as DDR has two data transfer per cycle this is the adopted description of speed by industry
