Taiwan-based overclocker Toppc used the MSI MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard alongside some Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 memory, reaching DDR4-7200 speeds. With Toppc using Intel's new Core i9-11900K processor, with just 2 cores and 2 threads enabled and the CPU downclocked to 1.5GHz with 1.505V of voltage.

LN2 cooling was used for the overclocking record, with the DDR4 memory set to CL58-63-63-63-2 3600 MHz (1:27). MSI's new MEG Z590 Unify-X motherboard was built for this very task: memory overclocking and smashing memory world records and I think MSI has just done that without a problem -- and we're only weeks into the launch of Rocket Lake-S.
