Kingston Hyper X Breaks World Record

We received a press release that is definitely worthy of repeating. It seems Kingston Hyper X has gone hyper speed on some liquid nitrogen (LN2) at GamesCom 2010 in Cologne. Overclockers Benjamin Bioux (Benji Tshi) and Jean-Baptiste Gerard (marmott) went a little crazy and used nothing but some pink foam for a "pot" and reached what Kingston says is "the fastest ever recorded frequency for memory".

But...they didn't run SP32M!



I'm evil.

Just yankin' yer crank Brolloks. What really impressed me about that wasn't the frequency, but was their tenacity in using FOAM for a pot!

Yeah I was looking at that foam pot contraption, pretty clever if you ask me, do you know what voltage they charged through those sticks?

No too bad, I was was expecting over 2 v on the RAM, vtt is pretty high for a 1156 chip

Wow! Insane speeds.

They should be wearing gloves or they can get liquid nitrogen "burns". Temps of −196 C; −321 F are nothing to be spilling on skin. Been there done that. No fun at all.
