Like rules and windows on an abandoned house, records are meant to be broken, and that's exactly what the rebels from G.Skill did at the Computex trade show in Taiwan. With the aid of lots of LN2, renowned overclockers Shamino, Fredyama, and Young Pro shattered the Super Pi 32M record at the G.Skill booth with a score of 5 minutes and 33.172 seconds, the fastest ever on an Intel LGA 1155 platform. The overclockers used G.Skill's DDR3-2400MHz Pi memory, which still had some frequency headroom left over once the Super Pi record was set.
The G.Skill RAM was plopped into an Asus ROG Maximum IV Extreme motherboard with an Intel Core i7 2600K doing the heavy lifting. With a steady stream of LN2, the overclockers goosed the processor to over 6GHz, though the RAM was 'only' running at 2340MHz (6-9-6-25, 1T), or 60MHz shy of its rated frequency. In other words, there's more headroom to work with. It's also worth mentioning that G.Skill has a 2500MHz kit in the works.
"This is just the beginning, we aim to achieve more records before the close of Computex 2011," G.Skill said.
