Taiwan enthusiast hecookie I was lucky enough to raise the bar for the RAM overclocking record – he made the RAM module work in DDR5-11136 mode, that is, with an effective frequency of 11136 MHz. This is only 6 MHz more than the previous record, but it is worth noting that no liquid nitrogen tank was installed on the memory module – only an aluminum heat sink was used.
The previous memory overclocking record was set on October 12 last year and was equivalent to achieving DDR5-11130 mode at timings of 60-127-127-127-127-2. The new record was set with the same delays, but the frequency was slightly higher.
The configuration of the dyno was different. Due to its involvement in the activities of Gigabyte Technology, the overclocker used the Gigabyte Z790 AORUS Tachyon motherboard, and a 16GB memory module was identified under the same brand. The system was based on an engineering sample of the Intel Core i9-13900K processor, which was cooled with liquid nitrogen via a special reservoir. The author of the experiment was happy to shoot with a smartphone camera, so the video quality is not very high.
Recall that in November last year, G.Skill demonstrated the ability of a single module to work in DDR5-10000 mode with only air cooling. For this reason, one should not be particularly surprised by the ability of the Gigabyte memory module to work in DDR5-11136 mode without an additional liquid nitrogen tank. Two extreme memory overclocking results have already been registered in the HWBot statistics, which correspond to modes higher than DDR5-11000.
