Kingston HyperX used to break two world records

BenchsessionIMTopOcaholicKingston_145Just as AMD and Intel like to talk about how high their CPUs can run so memory manufacturers want to show off how fast their stuff can go too. Recently two Swiss overclockers from Ocaholic.ch managed to pull off a couple of world records. The memory kit that managed to pull of this feat was Kingston’s HyperX 2544MHz (part number KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX). This is a pretty fast dual channel kit all on its own but once the voltage and the liquid nitrogen started flowing things heated up quickly.

The first world record was a blistering 3095 MHz at the low latency of CL6 set by Roger Tanner aka "splmann" and Marc Voser aka "Besi,". Tthis for those of you that are not familiar with what the CL number stands for let me explain a little. CL stands for Column Address Strobe Latency (sometimes referred to as CAS) it is represented by a number usually between 1 and 20. The number represents the amount of time between when the memory controller asks the memory to access a particular memory column and the time it is available for output; the lower the number the better.

When memory was slower it was easy to get a lower latency and make sure that the data was consistent. Now that we are hitting much higher frequencies and the memory controllers are on the CPU (and running at the same speed there too) it is becoming harder to keep these numbers low. This is what makes running memory at 3095MHz with a CL of only 6 so impressive. Right behind this feat was another record setting run, this time the CL was only 8 but the frequency went up a bit to 3175MHz.

Now while all of this was done with regular memory modules the amount of voltage used required some extra cooling. After all you can bet that they were not running the stock 1.5 volts through these modules to get the speeds they were reaching. So to keep things cool the HyperX modules were put into an aluminum and copper basin which was then filled with Liquid Nitrogen, just to keep things fun.

Fountain Valley, CA -- July 29, 2011-- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced that its fastest dual-channel memory kit, HyperX® 2544MHz (Kingston® part #: KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX), was clocked at 2902MHz with CL6 and 3082 MHz with CL7 timings, during a heavy home overclocking session in France.

      These are the fastest ever recorded frequencies for memory with CL6 and CL7 latencies.  They were achieved by the renowned overclockers Benjamin Bouix aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and

Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’ using liquid nitrogen as a cooling aid. The sessions were run on a GIGABYTE GA-P55-UD6C (bios F10) motherboard with an Intel® Core i7™ 870 processor.

     “This is the first time we have overclocked this module and the speeds achieved are very impressive,” said French overclocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’. “HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX has the potential to go even faster but unfortunately we were restricted by CPU performance so we can’t wait until the next OC session to beat our own records!”
