A US based mostly overclocker has achieved a powerful DDR5-7960 MHz velocity with Asrock’s Z690 Aqua OC motherboard on air cooling. The consequence was spectacular in that it was achieved with an air cooled system made up of an Intel Core i9 12900K, Asrock Z690 Aqua OC motherboard and a TeamGroup T-Power Delta RGB 16GB module. MllrKllr (by way of wccftech) is assured that he can obtain extra when he switches over to ln2 cooling.
ASRock’s Z690 Aqua sequence motherboards are extremely premium choices that sit on the prime finish of Asrock’s vary. They compete with the likes of the Asus Maximus Excessive, Gigabyte Excessive Waterforce and MSI Godlike. However what’s attention-grabbing is that there are two Aqua variants, certainly one of which is an OC model with simply two RAM slots. It is a bit of unusual that such a motherboard even exists as a board that is designed for excessive overclocking does not want all of the bells and whistles that come included with a flagship motherboard.
The reminiscence used was a TeamGroup T-Power Delta RGB DDR5-6400 module which is rated at 40-40-40-84 at 1.35V. It comprises the OC pleasant SK Hynix IC’s. On a aspect word, we occur to have this precise reminiscence package readily available for a evaluate and might be placing it via its OC paces. Keep tuned for that within the coming days.
Overclockers are all the time striving to realize greater speeds and benchmark scores. We noticed the identical factor occur in earlier generations. At one time, DDR4-4000 was an excellent OC however over time, DDR4-5000+ turned potential, even with XMP! DDR5 continues to be on the daybreak of its growth and speeds and latencies will proceed to enhance. It’s solely a matter of time earlier than overclockers can crack the 10000MHz barrier. As long as we can actually buy the stuff!
