in June. GIGABYTE overclockers “HiCookie” and “Sofos1990” achieved the
world’s fastest memory frequency of 4620MHz by using one 4GB HyperX
Predator 2933MHz DDR3 module (not yet available) on GIGABYTE’s Z97-SOC FORCE
LN2 motherboard. The true, live frequency was accurately read via oscilloscope,
monitored by an official HWBOT representative, and then submitted on HWBOT.org. Overclockers who
want to see the world record can view the entire process on video here and here.
