If you haven’t been following memory overclocking recently or you haven’t been following overclocking in general, a great achievement in the world of overclocking was achieved yesterday.
Extreme overclocker Toppc who hails from Taiwan managed to not only achieve a world record but became the world’s 1st to reach 5GHz on DDR4 memory. It was only a matter of time before the barrier was broken, but what’s more surprising is the motherboard that was used to do so. Armed with an Intel Core i5 6600K and GSKill Trident Z, Toppc also had assistance from the MSI Z170I Gaming Pro AC motherboard which may come as a shock to some.
Toppc is of course one of MSI’s stalwart sub-zero overclockers so it’s obvious that an MSI motherboard was used, but one that would be considered not as good as some others for overclocking taking the record certainly shows the salt of the parts the board uses; bravo!
It remains to be seen if Toppc can hold onto the DDR4 frequency world record for long as I know many of the worlds elite will be chomping at the bit to achieve 5GHz, but this doesn’t take anything away from him and us at Play3r congratulate Toppc on being the worlds first to reach 5GHz on DDR4; DDR4-5000 for those not entirely sure.
