Corsair Labs achieved an astounding speed of DDR3-2533MHz with the aggressive memory timings of 7-8-7-20 using a triple-channel 6GB memory kit.
This new world record, verified and validated by CPU-Z tool standard for verifying overclocking results, is the first time this frequency has been achieved on a Core i7 system with 6GB of memory using three modules; most world record attempts use only a single 1GB module. Corsair Labs engineers used the Dominator GT 2000C7 memory with eVGA?s X58 3X SLI Classified motherboard. Validated results and setup details can be viewed here
Corsair Labs selected the new EVGA X58 Classified motherboard for setting this new world record, along with a Corsair HX1000W power supply and the newly-announced Corsair Storage Solutions P256 SSD.
All Corsair Dominator GT modules are built using the patent-pending DHX+ (Dual-path Heat eXchange) heatsink, which cools both the front and back of the memory ICs, and the printed circuit board, for greater reliability and increased overclocking flexibility. All Dominator GT products also ship with the Corsair Airflow fan as standard, which maximizes airflow over the module?s cooling fins, increasing heat dissipation.
