Kingston Technology Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that the Romanian overclocking team, Lab501 achieved three new world records with the world’s fastest dual channel memory kit, the Kingston HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX, during a live overclocking session.

The three new records for RAM modules were set on the 3rd of December 2011, by Matei “Matose” Mihatoiu, Tudor “Monstru” Badica and Razvan “Micutzu” Fatu, the three Romanian overclocking champions from the world renowned Lab501 team. The records were achieved in an overclocking event organized in the eMAG showroom in Bucharest, Romania, in front of approximately 100 overclocking enthusiasts and two local TV crews.



The highest record was achieved with CAS 10 (Column Address Strobe Latency) 3600 MHz, now standing as the world’s highest memory frequency using DDR3 SDRAM. During the same event, the Lab501 team also managed to achieve the world records for CAS 9 with 3479 MHz and CAS 8 with 3275 MHz, using liquid nitrogen to cool the modules down to -196°C.

WTF is the point? You can't run that speed 24/7. I really really do not understand the point behind this extreme OCing when you can't manage to run the system more than 20 mins without smoking it.

We had an event at the store and while it was cool, I really do not see the point behind it at all.

I don't know why people always come into topics like this and ask such questions.
It's a world record it's not meant to be a 24/7 usage, is the car that broke the sound barrier on land in use everyday?

The point is that they set a new world record, had fun and went home with a smile.

That's exactly it. This sort of stuff doesn't appeal to me any more, but over the years it's become pretty obvious that the guys that go for extreme clocks, generally, aren't "gamers".

The dedication and passion put into acheiving world records is quite similar to an elite Starcraft player, yet both are small parts of the relatively small PC-enthusiast community, so there's ALWAYS going to be people that say "what's the point".

The only thing that kind of irks me is that you generally spend some time killing hardware when you go to this extreme. I wonder how ram kits died for this achievement? If they did it without killing anything, then it's really something to brag about.

Anyone know how much ram voltage they set, or expect voltage
im sure they set high voltage cuz they use AMD cpu.

And how many of any record-breaker attempt successful without sacrificing anything, tho?I bet those land-speed record blows up many engine in the process.
You just don't know whether you apply too much voltage or insufficient voltage, until you experienced something's wrong.

Sure, I agree. But with people coveting high-end parts, to see them killed to set a record can be upsetting.

When it comes to memory, I'd much rather see the OEMs openly marketing how they do their binning, and what hte best sticks out of that bin can do. For example, Corsair kinda does this already with the GTX-level of sticks. you want the best ICs Corsair has, you buy GTX sticks. With the rest of the OEMs, it's almost a crap shoot.

Most also don't consider that the $250 kits we buy cost the OEMs like $25. To me, that's not alot, so I love to see these guys pushing the limits. Spending $200 on 8 kits to get a WR is TOTALLY worth it. Unfortunately, the other $5000 worth of stuff you need makes such attempts impossible for most.

:toast: same page here...Just a thought....couldnt one achieve these speeds on most ANY brand of "high performance" memory with liquid nitrogen?

Not really. PCB and IC choices and IC binning play a large role, I think. Like, maybe one OEM tests their ram at a given speed more aggressively than another, leading to parts with the same "settings" stronger from one OEM to the next.

Ples, many OEMs wil change the ICs contained within the DIMM itself, and still use the same model number, while others change model numbers or have other markings that indicate the brand of IC.

Because DIMMs are made up from multiple memory IC's, there are many factors that can play a role in what one can expect buying similar ram seen in demonstrations like this. For all we know, Kingston binned a million sticks to find these...or maybe the first four sticks were golden...

Technically, yes, using the same type of IC on a similar PCB with the same supporting components might lead to similar results. Technically, change the CPU used, and the results will be very different too, so there's not even any point in speculating, really, to me.
