Corsair Dominator Hits 2462MHz, Sets Memory

Verified and validated by CPU-Z, Corsair Labs achieved an astounding speed of 2462MHz at CL=9 with a single-rank 1GB module. This new world record eclipses all previous CPU-Z validated memory benchmarks. This record was set using Corsair’s award winning DOMINATOR DDR3 memory module paired with an Asus P5E3 Premium motherboard based on the Intel X48 chipset. This is now the highest achieved DDR3 frequency of all time. Validated results and setup details can be found at http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=361829.

“Corsair is obsessed with pushing memory technology to its limits and beyond,” said Martin Mueller, Senior Director of Engineering, Corsair. “This World Record demonstrates the overclocking and high speed memory expertise within Corsair Labs and definitely pushes the memory enthusiast community to achieve even faster, more outrageous speeds.”

The DOMINATOR family of memory represents the ultimate in performance technology engineering from Corsair. DOMINATOR is designed with the highest performing IC over-clocking capability and Corsair’s patented DHX cooling. DHX technology is an innovative quad-layer heat sink design that optimizes memory performance and reliability by maximizing thermal dissipation. With DHX Technology, heat is removed via two paths – the leads of the BGA chips into the PCB (conductive cooling) and the back of the BGA packages into the custom designed extruded aluminum heat sinks (convective cooling). This allows DOMINATOR modules to achieve outstanding overclocking performance while remaining stable and reliable.

Corsair’s award winning DOMINATOR memory is widely available from Corsair retailers and etailers. Corsair memory products are backed by a lifetime warranty.Source: Corsair

I see your point, but it doesn't mean it's slower: without seeing an Everest bench (or another memory bench), i can't know for sure.

I know what I'm talking about. I got 2300MHz 7-7-7, and bandwidth was about 6k in everest. Slower than my s939 system 4 years ago.

Well Done!
Looking forward to my DDR2 to DDR3 upgrade.
X58 should be available soon which will allow time for something to replace my 4Gb 8888c4d to hit my local stores.

Once again, well done Corsair.

Note :- My 8888c4d's have been thru hell and back and have never missed a beat. They set me back an arm and a leg back in the day, but its been a few years now and they are still as tight as the day i got em. Proud owner.
