Corsair sets new DDR3 overclocking record

Posted on Wednesday, November 23 2011 @ 21:04:49 CET by

Corsair announced it has set a new DDR3 overclocking world record using a 1GB Dominator GT CMGTX6 memory module on a LN2 cooled PC with AMD's FX-8150 processor. The memory firm achieved a frequency of 3476.8MHz with 11-13-13-31 timings. The voltage is unknown, but further details can be read at Corsair.
Since I started working at Corsair in late 2009, one of my personal goals has been to break the memory frequency world record. I started to seriously pursue this goal in August 2010 with the launch of the CMGTX6 Dominator GT DDR3 memory. I was able to overclock one of those DIMMs to 2976MHz but was unable to go higher due to a CPU limitation. You can read about my previous world record Domintaor GT memory run in a previous post on the Corsair blog. Over the past year I have tried over 20 different processors in hopes of being able to run higher and go after the world record for memory frequency.

Up until last week I was using the Intel P55 platform to go after the frequency world record. However I noticed that the new AMD Bulldozer CPUs overclocked memory really well, so I went out and got an ASUS Crosshair V Formula and an AMD FX-8150 processor. I cooled the processor and memory using liquid nitrogen. On the CPU I used a K|ngP|n Gemini CPU pot and a K|ngP|n Dominance memory pot on the CMGTX6 DIMM. You can read how I broke my previous personal best for memory frequency in a previous post..
