Micron has shattered DDR4 overclocking records with their Elite DDR4 3,600 MHz memory. Stavros Savvopoulos and Phil Strecker, members of the Overclocked Gaming Systems team, managed to hit 5,726 MHz using liquid nitrogen cooling. Their setup consisted of an Intel i7-8086K CPU and ASUS Maximum XI Apex motherboard.

A CPU-Z screenshot verifying the achievement, as well as photos of the aftermath, can be found on overclocking site HWBOT.

“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,” explained Savvopoulos. “Overall, it was easy enough to call the whole experience plug and play!”
