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.
