G.Skill TridentX breaks world record at 4400MHz

G.Skill has reclaimed its position as performance king after professional overclocker James “YoungPro” Trevaskis reached 4400MHz using G.Skill’s TridentX memory earlier this morning.

Could the secret ingredient be the fins?

The set-up used to achieve this result consisted of an Intel Core i7 4770k, ASUS Maximus 6 Impact and G.Skill TridentX DDR3 3000MHz C12 4GB. As is the norm, a generous amount of LN2 was used to keep the equipment from going up in flames.

It is safe to say YoungPro kept a cool head throughout the attempt.

KitGuru says: We might not see factory clocked 4400MHz soon but this will surely push other manufacturers to claim the number 1 spot. For now, congratulations to YoungPro and G.Skill are in order with these impressive results!
