New RAM Overclocking World Record Set at 4620MHz

By Published July 15, 2014 at 2:51 pm

We've covered memory overclocking world records a few times over the last few years. From memory (ha!), our first coverage was of Christian Ney's 4000MHz LN2 OC using a kit of G.Skill Trident RAM. Back in June, Kingston and Gigabyte worked with overclocker "Hicookie" to push a new kit of HyperX memory to 4.5GHz.

The two hardware manufacturers have once again recruited "Hicookie" and "Sofos1990," who just announced success in overclocking a single HyperX Predator 2933MHz DDR3 module to 4620MHz. The team used Gigabyte's Z97-SOC Force LN2 motherboard for the endeavor - something we first covered here.

HWBOT, the go-to overclocking leaderboard, posted this video alongside the new record achievement:

The video shows an o-scope reading the memory's frequency in real-time, all cooled using LN2.

Kingston's 2933MHz Predator module is not yet available, but you can bet that it'll be expensive.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
