Computex 2016 - G.Skill's TridentZ DDR4 RAM was used to break the 5GHz once again, setting a new DDR4 world speed record at the 5th Annual OC World Record Stage.




Just weeks ago MSI's Taiwanese overclocker Topcc set a new world record by breaking the 5GHz DDR4 barrier with a liquid nitrogen build, but ASRock's pro OCer Allen "Splave" Golibersuch soared past the record at this year's OC World Record Stage. Splave hit a new all-time world record of DDR4-5189MHz using G.Skill's 8GB TridentZ DDR4 modules on an ASRock Z170M OC Formula motherboard and an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU.


Splave also used liquid nitrogen cooling to unlock the test bed's full potential, and actually downclocked the Intel Core i7-6700K CPU by 74% to just 1,004MHz in order to hit these high speeds. Take a look at the other new performance records that were set at the OC World Record Stage using G.Skill's Trident Z DDR4 RAM, Intel's Core i7-6700K CPUs, and NVIDIA's top-of-the-line GeForce GTX 1080 video cards.
