The new records were set on December 3, 2011, by Matei Mihatoiu aka “Matose”, Tudor Badica aka “Monstru” and Razvan Fatu aka “Micutzu”, the three Romanian overclocking champions from the world renowned Lab501 team. The records were achieved in an overclocking event organized in the eMAG showroom in Bucharest, Romania, in front of approximately 100 overclocking enthusiasts and two local TV crews. The highest record achieved was 3600MHz at CL10, which stands as the world’s highest memory frequency using DDR3 memory. During the same event, the Lab501 team also managed to achieve world records of 3479MHz at CL9 and 3275MHz at CL8, using liquid nitrogen to cool the modules down to -196°C.
“We have a long partnership with Kingston and we were looking forward to take our shot with their fastest dual channel memory kit in order to achieve at least one world record,” said Tudor Badica, founding member of the Lab501 team.
“Kingston provided us with the kit one week in advance, so after a few attempts and testing, I was quite confident that these modules were capable of achieving some very impressive speeds,” said Matei Mihatoiu, founding member of the Lab501 team, after the achievement.
“We would really like to thank Kingston for supporting us in our attempt to take the number one spot in the DDR3 SDRAM overclocking charts,” said Razvan Fatu, founding member of the Lab501 team.
