DDR4 Overclocking World Record Set Using Micron E-Die Memory
Record Broken Using Ballistix Elite 3600 MT/s RAM
A new world record for DDR4 memory overclocking has been reached, with a top speed of 5726 MT/s achieved (using liquid nitrogen, naturally). The record was set by Overclocked Gaming Systems (OGS) team members Stavros Savvopoulos and Phil Strecker using an 8GB Ballistix Elite 3600 module, and parent company Micron made the announcement in a press release this week.
The system used to overclock the Ballistix Elite 3600MT/s 8GB DDR4 module (Micron E-die) consisted of an ASUS Maximus XI Apex motherboard with an Intel Core i7-8086K processor running at 1635.94 MHz (16 x 102.25 MHz). The official results can be found on HWBot along with screenshots, and from comments made by the OGS team it seems Micron E-die will be a solid OC choice:
"We were blown away by how surprisingly easy it was to overclock these Ballistix Elite DDR4 3600MT/s modules. Other modules we’ve overclocked can be temperamental and need to train at temperatures lower than the one required for stability; but we didn’t experience that with Micron’s E-die, which scaled much better with both extreme voltages and temperatures."
