G.Skill seems to be on a overclocking roll these days. The memory manufacturer made news when an overclocker by the name of HiCookie took the company's TridentX Extreme Performance memory kit and boosted it to a frequency of 1,677MHz (or 3,354MHz effective) with the aid of a Gigabyte Z77X-UD4H motherboard and an Intel Core i7 3770K processor combination (and generous amounts of liquid nitrogen, of course). But someone had even higher ambitions and managed to further push the TridentX memory kit to a blistering frequency of 1,950MHz (or 3,900MHz effective). Christian Ney achieved this using an AMD-based rig this time, with a Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard and A8-3870K processor. As always, liquid nitrogen was applied to keep the memory chilled. Although the claim of the world's fastest RAM might be debatable, the overclocking feat is certainly impressive. "Despite being the world's fastest RAM manufacturer, G.Skill will continue to strive for first-class quality at competitive pricing to the market," declared Bill Wang, G.Skill's VP.
