Sunbury-on-Thames – November 08, 2011 — Kingston Technology Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that the Swiss overclocking community Ocaholic.ch has once more achieved two new world records with world’s fastest dual channel memory kit Kingston HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX.
The two new records for RAM modules were set on 20th October 2011 by two Swiss overclockers Roger Tanner alias “splmann” and Marc Voser alias “Besi” during IM.TOP – the in-house trade fair of Swiss distributors Ingram Micro in Lucerne. This means that at CAS 6 (Column Address Strobe Latency) 3095 MHz was achieved and at CAS 8, 3175 MHz was achieved. These are the fastest frequencies ever achieved for memory with CAS 6 and CAS 8. To achieve such a clock speed the memory modules were cooled with liquid nitrogen. For this purpose the memory slots were fixed in a cooler made from aluminium and copper. The cooler has a basin at the top which was filled with the -196°C liquid nitrogen.
“Regarding the topic of overclocking, there is a community active worldwide which is continually trying to operate PC components at a significantly higher clock speed than specified by their manufacturers” explains Marc Büchel, chief editor and founder of Ocaholic.ch and initiator of the Swiss overclocking session. “Our platform has made a name for itself above all regarding the overclocking of main memory modules, and we are very proud to have beaten the world record for CL7 modules of our French overclocking colleagues Benjamin Bouix alias «Benji Tshi» and Jean-Baptiste Gerard which they achieved in August. At the same time we are looking forward with anticipation to the reactions of the worldwide community.”
