G.Skill RAM Used to Set Overclocking Records
During the week of Computex 2012, five overclocking and benchmark records were broken by systems using G.Skill memory. The Super Pi 32M score was set at 4 minutes and 44.734 seconds by Fredyama-san and Shamino with an Intel i7 3770K and G.Skill memory running at 2646MHz on a ASUS Maximus V Formula. Hiwa Pouri set a new memory bandwidth read record of 32,339MB/s using G.Skill TridentX memory running at 2900MHz CL10 with 1T timings. Kingpin and Duck-san used G.Skill RipjawsZ running at 2468MHz with a system that also featured four EVGA Classified GTX680 video cards to set the 3DMark 11 record at 31,299. Hiwa Pouri set another memory record by clocking a 16GB set of TridentX to 3286MHz, an increase of 486MHz. The fastest overall DDR3 frequency was obtained by John Lam using 4GB of TridentX memory with a frequency of 3842MHz.
