G.Skill has managed to overclock a 16GB kit (4x4GB) of its TridentX line of DDR3 to an astronomical clock speed of 4072MHz. The company says this is the first instance of a quad-channel DDR3 memory kit breaking the 4GHz barrier. The amazing feat was accomplished with the aid of an Intel Core i7-4960 CPU and an ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition motherboard. The overclock was achieved with a healthy dose of extreme cooling provided by liquid nitrogen.
