The always challenging memory overclocking segment has just witnessed another push to heights not reached previously; this time in terms of quad channel setups.
Just last month we saw G.Skill and GIGABYTE reach for the stars, and by George did they ever, achieving a staggering 3736MHz on AMD’s dual channel Llano platform.
Taking another good crack at jumping into the limelight once again with a Core i7-3770K “Ivy Bridge” processor and GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H motherboard, renowned Chinese overclocker Coolaler suited the platform up with four 4GB G.Skill DDR3-2600 MHz modules and went to town while remaining confined to air cooling measures.
Amazingly, the 3000MHz barrier was smashed and Coolaler continued to climb, settling for 3077MHz in the end with latencies of 11-14-14-35 2T. A remarkable feat indeed! – You can watch the event unfold in the 8 minute video below :-
KitGuru says: A pretty staggering result considering it was all done with nothing more than traditional air cooling. Makes you wonder just how far he could have gone if using more extreme cooling measures.
