Fountain Valley, CA — July 29, 2011– Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that its fastest dual-channel memory kit, HyperX® 2544MHz (Kingston® part #: KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX), was clocked at 2902MHz with CL6 and 3082 MHz with CL7 timings, during a heavy home overclocking session in France.

These are the fastest ever recorded frequencies for memory with CL6 and CL7 latencies. They were achieved by the renowned overclockers Benjamin Bouix aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and

Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’ using liquid nitrogen as a cooling aid. The sessions were run on a GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD6C (bios F10) motherboard with an Intel® Core i7™ 870 processor.

“This is the first time we have overclocked this module and the speeds achieved are very impressive,” said French overclocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’. “HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX has the potential to go even faster but unfortunately we were restricted by CPU performance so we can’t wait until the next OC session to beat our own records!”

Detailed information about the session is available online:
