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.

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.
