HWBOT DDR3 High-Clock Challenge

Since DRAM vendors discovered the tRCD memory timing all hell broke loose. On the plus side, we are seeing insanely high clocked memory kits on the market, which is something every overclocker can appreciate, but those come with ridiculous timings.

But it doesn't stop there - the marketing machine that comes with this new type of DDR3 memory has moved to CPU-Z validations to prove 'best overclocking capabilities'. That performance is sacrificed to achieve this one moment of stability is apparently not a problem.

So, to go against the flow of pointless CPU-Z Dram validations we have set up this DDR3 High-Clock Challenge. This, being a challenge that combines both the challenge of overclocking the memory as high as possible as well as maintaining a decent performance ratio.

Good luck!
