Lsdmeasap takes Mushkin 1600MHz DDR3 to 2700MHz with dry ice!

By: Array

Blimey Charlie! Words that not all of you will understand. But let us just say when I just got word now of Lsdmeasap aka Ed, GIGABYTE volunteer tech support and all-round great guy from our forums, hitting a 2700MHz DDR3 memory speed, I got just a little excited. We all know this guy knows his motherboards inside out, but even I didn't know he was really into extreme overclocking.

Using a GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 motherboard and a Mushkin 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600MHz Blackline triple-channel kit, oh and of course some lovely cold dry ice, he managed to hit an incredible memory speed of 2700MHz DDR. This was with the memory set at a 2:16 ratio and the timings set at 9-12-11-31. And remember this is in triple-channel mode!

 

And you thought you had to buy G.SKILL, Corsair or OCZ RAM to get the big clocks. Welcome back Mushkin! Head on over to this forum thread for the full details and more impressive photos.

 

Kingmax planning nano thermal dissipation for 2400MHz DDR3 kit

By: Array

After an extended break, Kingmax are making another big splash in the memory market as they strive to make their way back up to the top tier enthusiast class segment.

 

It's been mentioned this week that they are planning something quite unique to stand out from the pack with an upcoming dual channel kit for LGA-1156 systems.

A-DATA XPG Memory adds in new features such as active fan cooling

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - We found ourselves back at the A-DATA booth where we got an introduction into its line-up of XPG memory that is designed for overclockers, enthusiasts and gamers.

 

 

The Xtreme Series now includes an active fan cooling unit that is like others on market. It is installed over the top of the RAM and the two fans push air down over heatsink to aid in stability and performance when pushing the memory as fast as you can go.

 

The Plus Series includes cooling as well, but in the form of a heatpipe design. The Gaming Series doesn't come with any external cooling besides of course the standard heat spreader on the RAM. All these modules are now made using a 2oz copper PCB design which is designed to improve overclockability.

 

G.SKILL showcases some of the fastest RAM at Computex

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - G.SKILL was a hive of activity during the show today as Kingpin and crew were on hand to provide live overclocking demonstrations using LN2. Just imagine the types of results they would have seen if our own OC champion Deanzo was put in charge at the event.

 

 

In any case, Frank from G.SKILL was on hand to give us a rundown on their newest range of memory modules. They had AMD modules that work at 2000MHz DDR, as well as a triple channel kit that operates at 2400MHz that Frank called the fastest on the market for this type of setup since three modules running together adds some complexity.

 

Finally we finished off with a uber l33t dual-channel 2500MHz DDR3 kit that was displayed at the show running an amazing 2500MHz at impressive timings of CL8 considering the speed at which the memory chips are working at.

Ballistix Gets Temperature Data Logging

By: Array

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - Crucial today introduced a new addition to their Ballistix line of products. In this revision Ballistix gets a new look from a new heat spreader, gains a temperature sensor and a downloadable utility to log data from the drive just as a Formula One car would monitor and report data from its sensors.

I was talking with a few members from Crucial today and asked about different skins for the new Ballistix utility and received a wealth of information about what is to come in the future.

Team thinks green with latest Elite series DDR ULV modules

By: Array

Team Group is thinking green with its latest release of Elite series DDR3 memory modules. These are rated to run at speeds of 1333MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24 whilst only requiring 1.35v to do so reliably.

A-DATA re-works its XPG 2000MHz DDR3 modules

By: Array

A-DATA has entered the DDR3-2000MHz ring with some new "v2.0" XPG Gaming Series modules this week which are even better optimized for Intel's X58, P55 and H55 platforms, sporting 9-9-9-24 timings at 1.65v.

The new modules use improved aluminum heat spreaders with increased surface area for faster heat dissipation. Both 4 and 6GB kits are available and the kits come with lifetime warranties. Pricing isn't yet known, however.

 

For full details, check out the announcement here.

Corsair shatters dual-channel memory frequency record for AMD CPUs

Corsair is a huge part of the memory market for computers of all types for enthusiasts and gamers. The company makes all sorts of gear like flash drives and power supplies in addition to PC memory. Corsair is always out to prove its memory is tops and the company has announced that it has broken a record.

 

Corsair reports that it has broken the world record for dual-channel memory on AMD Phenom II processors. The record breaking run was made on a machine using Dominator GTX4 Memory, a Hydro Series H50 CPU cooler, and a Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition CPU.

 

Corsair was able to get the RAM to run stable at 2287.6MHz and the record setting run was independently validated. That is some fast memory for sure. The board in the record setting PC was an ASUS Crosshair IV Formula.

 

Patriot gears up for Computex with 2500MHz DDR3 modules and SandForce SSDs

By: Array

Patriot has some nice playing cards for Computex this year. The strong standing storage and memory maker is readying up some super fast DDR3-2500MHz "Sector 5 Edition" memory kits under its Viper II Series that will be available in both 4 and 6GB kits. Their 2500MHz speeds will be possible with timings of 9-11-9-27T at 1.65v.
