Earlier this week, Taiwanese overclocker Bianbao managed something pretty incredible: pushing a stick of Crucial’s Ballistix MAX memory to an eyeball-melting 6666.6 MHz. We’re not sure if demons flew out of the case when that happened, but this is now the top record for DDR4 SDRAM. If you don’t believe it, check out the HWBOT submission here.

Bianbao accomplished this feat with an ASUS ROG Strix B550-I Gaming and AMD Ryzen 7 4700GE “Renoir” APU. Temperature, naturally, was tamed with the help of liquid nitrogen.

It’s worth pointing out that Bianbao has the second-fastest DDR4 memory record, too. That achievement was 6,665.4 (just a smidgen under the current top record) and was done with an ASUS ROG Maximus XII Apex and Intel Core i9 10900K “Comet Lake-S” processor.
