Kingston HyperX memory overclocked at 3068 MHz

Posted by Aharon Etengoff

Serial overclockers Benjamin Bioux (aka "Benji Tshi") and Jean-Baptiste Gerard (aka "marmott") have managed to run two Kingston 2333MHz 3GB triple-channel HyperX modules at a blazing 3068 MHz.

A Kingston spokesperson told TG Daily that Bioux and Gerad used liquid nitrogen to cool the modules during a "heavy" overclocking session at Gamescom 2010.  

"The Kingston HyperX 2333 MHz kit was released in June. It is the fastest Intel-certified triple channel memory in the world, running at low latencies of 9-11-9-27-2N timings at 1.65 volts," said the spokesperson.

"[Now, the Gamescom overlcocking was] the fastest ever recorded frequency for memory and was run on a GIGABYTE P55 with an Intel Core i7 870 processor. Two modules from the kit of three were used to achieve this honor."

Meanwhile, Gerard said that he was "absolutely thrilled" by the speed of Kingston’s HyperX module.

"We knew this module had a lot of potential, but being able to push it that far and break the record for memory frequency even surprised me.

"So we are eager to see what Kingston has in the pipeline for the future."
