Nordic Hardware returns with some more information on the ASUS P5E3 Deluxe and Intel X38. This time they managed to set a new memory bandwidth read record using only air cooling!

"Besides the P5E3 Deluxe we also have Corsair's new DDR3 Dominator memory and it is working flawlessly at 2,000 MHz with 7-6-5-15 1T timings. With some assistance from the cold Swedish Autumn night and an extreme airflow, we managed to push Intel's QX6850 to 4,470 MHz and reach a memory bandwidth read speed of 13,425 MB/s, a new record."
