MSI Gaming Overclocking Workforce member Kovan Yang has managed to coax a stick of DDR5 to obtain DDR5-10004. In a system packing an Intel Core i9-12900KS, fastened to an MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard, Yang pushed a single 16GB stick of Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM to five,001.8 MHz (10,004 MT/s, DDR5-10004). Maybe surprisingly, Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 is not a prime decide in our Greatest DDR5 RAM benchmarks hierarchy.
The MSI OC Workforce DDR5 overclocking achievement is critical, as it’s the first to poke its nostril over the 5,000 MHz / DDR5-10000 threshold. For reference, the second place DDR5 frequency document holder is Lupin_no_musume with 4779.7 MHz, adopted by Safedisk with 4,756.6 MHz, and Hicookie with 4,501.6 MHz, with the remainder of the highest 10 floundering beneath.
The HWBot overclocking submission web page shares a number of the particulars of the method utilized by Yang to realize this world document DDR5 overclock. For these sorts of document makes an attempt it looks as if the present greatest follow is to make use of a single stick of 16GB DDR5 RAM. This DDR5-10004 achievement relied on Kingston Fury Beast DDR5.
The overclocking particulars counsel the CPU was liquid nitrogen cooled, however there isn’t any particular cooling technique specified for the RAM. As different prime 10 entrants generally observe that LN2 is used to chill the RAM, it’s fairly sure that is the case with Kovan Yang’s submission too – given the acute speeds concerned.
Elsewhere it’s notable that MSI’s overclocker has downclocked the CPU to only 425 MHz. Different charting overclockers on this class have fairly sluggish operating CPUs, however we observed second positioned Lupin_no_musume had overclocked their 12900K by 10%.
MSI appears to be moderately pleased with this achievement by their in-house overclocking crew member. The motherboard on the coronary heart of the document breaking system was the MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X. The MEG Z690 Unify vary is claimed to embody stealthy appears with final efficiency. Now we have not too long ago shared in-depth critiques of the $489 MSI MEG Z690 Unify (ATX), in addition to the diminutive $399 MSI MEG Z690I Unify (ITX), however not had the Unify-X by the labs as but.
Different key elements in Kovan Yang’s rig that we’ve got had in for overview embody the Intel Core i9-12900KS, which was launched lower than a month in the past. And we had a really shut take a look at a Kingston Fury Beast DDR5-5200 C40 reminiscence equipment, however our pattern wasn’t very receptive to our overclocking makes an attempt. Evidently, MSI’s overclocking crew could have had the prospect to cherry-pick a number of the greatest elements for his or her overclocking enjoyable and frolics.
