Boasting, are we? Corsair has just announced that a new overclocking world record has been set. One that apparently shatters the previous memory frequency world record with a custom-built liquid nitrogen cooled system. The record? They hit a memory frequency of 1733.8MHz (DDR3-3467) using Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX6 extreme-performance DDR3 memory.

World champion overclocker and Corsair employee Jake "Planet" Crimmins set the new record at Corsair's laboratory with a custom-designed, liquid nitrogen cooled PC based on an AMD FX-8150 processor and equipped with 1GB of Dominator GT extreme-performance DDR3 memory. The system was powered by a Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200 fully modular power supply.


"Breaking overclocking world records requires skill, ingenuity, and the right equipment," said Jake Crimmins. "I've broken several records using Dominator GT memory. It's reliable, it has amazing headroom, and it's never let me down." So, anyone placing bets on how long the record stands?

Considering that it is normally Corsair that sets the record, this will last for a few months until their next major product or someone barely manages to beat them. Then they will do it again and hold it for a few months.
