G.Skill TridentX DDR3 Memory Overclocked to 3,900 MHz

The note comes courtesy of two overclockers who pushed the memory to 3,354 MHz and shortly thereafter to 3,900 MHz.

Christian Ney, who posted the world record on HWBot, used a 4 GB TridentX module with CL14 14-14-36 2T timings on a Gigabyte GA-A75-UD4H motherboard running AMD's A8-3870K Llano processor. Ney said that he used liquid nitrogen for cooling and recorded a 120 degrees Celsius temperature under full load.

    I bet that APU was treated so damn well.

    120*C with LN2???? I wonder how hot it would be with normal cooling solutions...

    Jedi Mind Trick120*C with LN2???? I wonder how hot it would be with normal cooling solutions...Well, most solder starts to melt around 180C, so I can't imagine anything past that.

    bawchicawawaErm, isn't it -120C...?Yep. The source article even shows -120°C for both idle and load temperatures.

    That isn't memory that's cold fusion.

    derekulloThat isn't memory that's cold fusion.I see what you did there. AMD's Fusion is now subzero.
