Corsair Dominator GT RAM used to break overclocking records

By: Array

Computer enthusiasts are into all sorts of things when it comes to their computer systems. Some like gaming, some like crunching numbers, and some like to see how far they can push their hardware when overclocking. The most hard-core overclockers get away from liquid and air cooling and go for more exotic methods like liquid nitrogen to keep components cool.

Corsair announced today that its Dominator GT GTX6 RAM modules have been use to break memory speed worked records for DDR3. Overclocker Matthias Zronek used the Corsair RAM to break frequency records with CPU-Z validated speeds of 3078.2MHz at CL8-11-8-31 and 3059.4 MHz at CL7-11-8-31.

Kingston 2333MHz DDR3 modules pushed beyond 3GHz

By: Array

We see some very impressive overclocking results from time to time out of some of our DDR3 samples that pass through the TweakTown labs, but nothing holds a candle to what was achieved out of some Kingston branded modules at GamesCom 2010 last week.

 

Overclockers Benjamin 'Benji Tshi' Bioux and Jean-Baptiste 'marmott' Gerard used their overclocking prowess on a pair of HyperX KHX2333C9D3T1K3 modules from Kingston; these rated for a stock speed of 2333MHz. The rest of the platform comprised a Gigabyte GA-P55-UD6 motherboard, an Intel Core i7-870 processor, a Radeon HD 5670 graphics card and a Kingston 512GB solid state drive.

 

In order to push for the best possible outcome, extreme cooling measures were used in the form of liquid nitrogen.

 

The result? A massive 3068 MHz out of the memory, while the CPU ticked away at 4347 MHz.

Kingston launches HyperX H2O RAM

By: Array

Kingston has been building and selling enthusiast RAM for computers for a long time. The company has a line of RAM that is popular with gamers and overclockers in the HyperX series.

The new HyperX H2O series RAM is notable because rather than having the traditional aluminum heat sink the RAM has a heat sink that has barbs for liquid cooling. The heat sink allows water to be circulated through the heat sink for better cooling.

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.
