Corsair Dominator GTX6 Breaks Two DDR3 Memory Speed World Records

Corsair's Dominator GT GTX6 DDR3 memory was used to set two new world records for dual-channel memory frequency at CAS 7 and CAS 8.

The record-setting frequencies of 3078.2 MHz, CL8-11-8-31, 1T, and 3059.4 MHz, CL7-11-8-31, 1T, were achieved by overclocker "Mat", aka Matthias Zronek, from www.overclockers.at.

"I've worked with the Corsair Dominator GT memory for quite some time now, and can easily say that these are great memory modules, dedicated to world-record overclocking," stated Matthias Zronek. "What surprised me the most is the potential of the Domintator GT GTX6. Even at 3000MHz and higher frequencies, at CL7, there is still headroom for lots of optimization."

The hardware used included a Gigabyte P55A-UD7 motherboard, Intel Core i7-870 processor, and a pair of Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX6 modules. Corsair?s modular DHX+ technology allowed a Besi Memory-Freezer to be directly attached to the memory heat sinks, enabling benchmarking temperatures as low as -90 degrees C using liquid nitrogen.

Independent validation of these world record achievements can be found at the CPU-Z validation database:
