G.SKILL breaks the DDR4 frequency world record at DDR4-5500MHz by Toppc, a Taiwanese professional extreme overclocker. The record-breaking G.SKILL DDR4 memory was built using high-quality Samsung NAND chips. The record was set using an Intel Core X-Series processor and the MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard. It was also a similar time last year, a week before Computex 2016, when Toppc broke the DDR4-5000MHz barrier with G.SKILL DDR4 memory and a MSI Z170I GAMING PRO AC motherboard. This year he broke his own record and set it a notch higher to 5.5GHz using extreme cooling methodologies using liquid nitrogen.
