Corsair Sets DDR3 World Record (Again)
Corsair likes to let people know when it breaks a world record (well, wouldn't you?), having previously set the DDR3 record of 2462MHz back in May. Once again, it is the company's Dominator modules pushing the speed limits further, adding 118MHz to the record by running at 2580MHz on the Intel X48 chipset (the ASUS ROG Rampage Extreme) with an E8400 processor. Timings at the new record figure were 9-9-9-24, which you can see a CPU-Z validation for here. Don't expect to achieve these kind of results without some considerable effort though, as Corsair cooled the whole system (Motherboard, CPU, Chipset and Memory) down to -20C for the testing.
