Fastest dual memory kit
Kingston has released what it calls the world’s fastest dual channel memory kit. The Kingston HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX, was clocked at 2902MHz with CAS 6 and 3082MHz with CAS 7 latencies during a heavy home over-clocking session in France.

The speeds were managed by renowned over-clocker Benjamin Bouix aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘Marmott’. They are the fastest ever recorded frequencies for memory with CAS 6 and CAS 7 the sessions were run on a GIGABYTE P55 UD6C (bios F10) with an Intel Core i7 870 processor.

It is not the sort of thing you can play around with at home. The pair used liquid nitrogen as cooling aid. ‘Marmott’ said it was the first time he had overclocked this module and the speeds achieved are very impressive.” He thinks HyperX KHX2544C9D3T1FK2/2GX has the potential to go even faster but unfortunately we were restricted by CPU performance.
