Micron’s Ballistix Elite 3600MT/s 8GB modules were recently used to set a new overclocking world record. The 3600MT/s modules were overclocked to run at 5726MT/s. This was achieved on May 13, 2019, by Stavros Savvopoulos and Phil Strecker. Both, members of the Overclocked Gaming Systems (OGS) team, used the following setup:
● Intel® i7-8086K CPU
● ASUS® Maximus XI Apex Motherboard
● Ballistix Elite 3600MT/s 8GB module
● Liquid nitrogen (LN2) cooling
“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,”Stavros Savvopoulos
“Breaking this world record reinforces our commitment to the enthusiast community. Our Ballistix product lineup provides the high-speed, low-latency and overclock headroom that gamers, content creators, and enthusiasts crave,”Teresa Kelley, Vice President of Micron’s Consumer Products Group
The Ballistix Elite DDR4 3600MT/s modules are available in 8GB single modules and kits up to 32GB.
