G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR4 Memory Hits A New Overclocking World Record
January has been a very busy month for the overclocking community, especially with regards the new DDR4 memory standard. For the past few weeks overclockers the world over, and by proxy memory vendors, have been duking it out where it really matters - world record charts. The latest to leapfrog to the top is G.Skill's own team, who have pushed their Ripjaws 4 DDR4 memory to an impressive 4355MHz.
The new record was set using one 4GB DDR4 DIMM in an ASUS Rampage V Extreme motherboard also equipped with an Intel i7-5960X processor. Naturally, extreme cooling was the order of the day, in this instance through liquid nitrogen. The validation sheet can be seen below:
According to HWBOT this is the tenth time since the new year G.Skill DIMMs have hit the top of a worldwide overclocking leaderboard, including both their TridentX and Ripjaws 4 memory. As the processes used to manufacture and select DDR4 have matured so have the upper boundaries for overclocking and stability, leading to a glut of new records. Perhaps things will calm down in the Spring, but not if the overclockers themselves have anything to say about it.
