Memory World Record Broken at DDR4-5543MHz
A new memory frequency world record was set this week at the G.SKILL Computex booth by Toppc, a renowned professional extreme overclocker, reaching DDR4-5543MHz using Trident Z RGB memory on a MSI Z370I GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-8700K processor. On the same day, another pro extreme overclocker named Kovan Yang overclocked the Trident Z RGB memory to a whopping DDR4-5541.4MHz, reaching the second spot on the fastest memory frequency rankings, with an MSI X299 GAMING PRO CARBON AC motherboard and an Intel® Core™ i7-7740X processor. This marks the first time that the top two memory frequency records are set on two different chipset platforms.

G.SKILL Announces New Specifications for AMD Ryzen™ 2000 Series Processors and X470 Platform
Up to DDR4-3600MHz
Taipei, Taiwan (19 April 2018) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is excited to announce the release of new Trident Z RGB and Sniper X series specifications launching in conjunction with the release of the AMD Ryzen™ 2000 series processors and the X470 platform. Kit specifications starting from DDR4-3200MHz CL16-18-18-38 16GB (2x8GB) to DDR4-3600MHz 18-22-22-42 16GB (2x8GB), these new specifications push the boundaries of AMD system performance to the next level.
ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero Sets the Pace on AMD X470
We’ve been working closely with world-renowned overclockers to push the Ryzen 7 2700X to the brink on the Crosshair VII Hero. Elmor has already set a new record for the AM4 reference clock, decimating the old mark of 151.56MHz with an incredible 240.61MHz. TheOverclocker has claimed records for peak Ryzen CPU frequency with 6GHz on not only a single core, but also all eight cores and 16 threads. Top scores have also fallen in key benchmarks for eight-core CPUs, with TheOverclocker setting the fastest time in GPU PI for CPU 1B, and Der8auer hitting the top of the Geekbench3 leaderboard.
Precise voltage is vital when you’re on the edge, so the Hero tracks important rails from the best spot on the power plane, and it uses differential sensing to ensure accurate readings from both software and the onboard ProbeIT measurement points. Most motherboards rely on single-ended sensing tapped from a location that isn’t ideal, making it more difficult to gauge exactly how much voltage is being supplied to your components.
With eight onboard headers for fans and pumps, the Hero has the cooling credentials to match its overclocking aspirations. It’s ready for custom liquid loops thanks to a high-amperage pump header that can push up to 3A, plus additional headers for monitoring coolant temperatures and flow rate. If you somehow run out of places to connect fans, the board works with the ASUS Fan Extension card, which supports even more fans and temperature probes.
Taipei, Taiwan (11 April 2018) – G.SKILL International Enterprise Co., Ltd., the world’s leading manufacturer of extreme performance memory and gaming peripherals, is announcing the rules and benchmarks for the G.SKILL 5th Annual OC World Cup 2018 Live Qualifier. This live competition event will be held during the week of Computex 2018, from June 5th through June 7th, followed by the OC World Cup 2018 Grand Final on June 8, 2018. Be sure to check out the main stage at the G.SKILL booth for exciting live overclocking and liquid nitrogen in action!
It has taken multiple attempts and tweaks, but revision 7.1 of the hwbot points has recalculated all 2.5 million submissions as of yesterday. If you spot any odd points, please comment on this news post.
