Kingstone 2333MHz T1 Breaks World Record

Kingston HyperX Obtains World Record

At an over-clocking session at GamesCom 2010 in Cologne, some Kingston HyperX 2333MHz CAS9 RAM was overclocked to a staggering, World Record, 3068MHz!! This is a new frequency World Record for a dual channel kit, taking memory into the 3GHz stratosphere.

Running on a Gigabyte P55A UD4 and an Intel Core i7 870 processor, Benjamin Bioux aka ‘Benji Tshi’ and Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘marmott’ utilised the over-clockers favourite liquid nitrogen to achieve this incredible speed.

Reigning French over-clocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard :

We are absolutely thrilled by the speed of this module.’, said reigning French over-clocking champion Jean-Baptiste Gerard aka ‘marmott’,  ‘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. We are eager to see what Kingston has in the pipeline for the future.

In June 2010 Kingston released the fastest Intel Certified triple channel memory in the world. Running at latencies of 9-11-9-27-2N at 1.65v the Kingston HyperX 2333MHz was developed for those looking to scale new memory heights and was quickly embraced by enthusiasts world-wide.

Back in May we reviewed the 2000MHz HyperX kit (review here) and we also thought it was absolutely outstanding. It won our Editors Choice with 10 out of 10 for performance.

If you want to know more, and we heartily recommend watching the Youtube video if nothing else, here are the links that you need :


We can't wait to get our hands on one of these kits and put it through its paces. Kingston are re-affirming their place at the top of the memory pile. Discuss in our forums.

Hey, guys. I need some new RAM. I'm having a hard time choosing what RAM to get. I've been thinking of either getting 4GB Mushkin Redline 1600MHz 6-8-6-24 or 8GB OCZ Gold 1600MHz 8-8-8-24. I'm open for all suggestions as long as it's low RAM that fits with the Noctua NH-D14. And is it true that you don't get as good over clock on your CPU with all RAM slots filled? Thanks in advance. :)

whats your budget.

i no the new dominators can have the heatsink takne of aswell as the dom GT's

Budget is not really an issue as long as it's within 170. Keep in mind stuff here in Norway is expensive.

That first sentence didn't make any sense. xD

Edit: I know I can unscrew the heatsink on the Dominator and Dominator GT RAM, but it looks stupid and I'd rather have some RAm that actually fits. And the Dominator RAM is over priced. As well as the Dominator GT.

Without even taking the timings into consideration I'd opt for the Mushkin Redline if its within your budget. I've always had a soft spot for Mushkin and their kits seem to be very reliable. The fact that the timings you posted are much tighter than the OCZ's is also a nice bonus (if only for slackening straight away to release some more OC potential)

As for the more slots filled = less OC potential, yeah that is generally how it works. But you can lessen the effect with tweaking.

That's true, Jim. I just feel as it would be a dumb choice to go with the Mushkin Redline because with the OCZ Gold I do get 8GB and not 4GB as I do with the Mushkin Redline. That's why it's hard to make up my mind. But my brother, my friend and you recommended the Redline either way, so I think I'll with that then. :)

I have to admit I overlooked the 4GB vs 8GB in your post. But I still stick by my suggestion tbh.

Having run an i7 with 6GB and a i5 with 8GB as my main systems in the past, I'm happily sitting here running 4GB of DDR2 on a C2D E8400 and haven't really noticed sod all difference.

Get the Mushkin, clock the bolax off it and enjoy a very nippy PC :D

Alright. :) I love the kind people here on Overclock3D. :D I'll get the Redline and I hope I can run it close to 2000MHz. :D
