In April of 2010, we posted here on the Corsair blog that Romanian overclocker “matose” aka Matei Mihatoiu had achieved a very special memory frequency using our Dominator® GT CMGGTX1 modules. See that blog post here: Romanian Overclocker “matose” Pushes Corsair Dominator® GT CMGTX1 DDR3 Memory Modules to Extreme Speeds.
We also predicted that matose and his cohorts at Lab501 would continue to strive for even higher memory frequencies and they did not disappoint! Recently they used our latest and greatest Dominator GT memory, the CMGTX6, and broke the 3GHz barrier in dual channel at the extraordinary low latencies of 8-11-8-31. And, as in the previous post, it was no suicide run and he was able to run the operating system and record the results pictured below.
According to our research of the available posted benchmark records, this is the highest dual channel frequency ever recorded at CAS8. This is an incredible accomplishment for matose and you can follow his continued exploits at the Xtreme Systems forums. We will certainly be following along and we applaud matose for his efforts and this achievement.
The Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX6 modules are specially screened, single sided memory tailored specifically for this type of overclocking. As you can see, matose has the skills and equipment to push it far beyond our specifications as he explores the extreme outer limits of his hardware. If he is able to continue to push the BClock on his CPU, there is no telling just how far he can go with the Dominator GT CMGTX6, and we can't wait to find out! Stay tuned...
