This is the fastest ever recorded frequency for memory and was achieved by the renowned over-clockers Benjamin Bioux aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘marmott’, using liquid nitrogen as cooling aid. The session was run on a GIGABYTE P55 with an Intel Core i7 870 processor.

‘We are absolutely thrilled by the speed of this module.’, said reigning French over-clocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘marmott’, ‘we knew this module had a lot of potential, but being able to push it that far and break the record for memory frequency even surprised me.
