A well known overclocker in Romania known as "matose" has shown just what Corsair's top-end Dominator series GTX1 DDR3 memory is capable of in the right hands.

Corsair reports that even in his initial testing phase using only air cooling on the CPU and memory controller, he still managed to get stability from the modules running at 2666MHz, backed by a validation on the CPU-Z website. A nice feat indeed with the modules already pushed to extremes out of the box at their rated 2400MHz speed.

However, in typical pro overclocker fashion, he wasn't satisfied there and decided to take things to the next level. It was time to strap some dry ice to the platform and see how far the ceiling could rise with the modules, if much at all.

Thankfully, it certainly turned out worthwhile with an incredible CPU-Z validated clock rate of 2906MHz, showing just what kind of headroom these highly impressive modules have in reserve when in the right hands.

Corsair were so proud of matose's achievement, they decided to issue out a press release giving the full scoop and there's more to be read over at the Xtreme Systems Forums.
