Kovan Yang, an in-house MSI overclocker, has stretched the limits of DDR4 memory by pushing HyperX Predator DDR4 memory all the way to 7.1 GHz using liquid nitrogen. This was achieved using an MSI MEG XZ590I UNIFY mini ITX motherboard with an Intel Core i9-11900K. The motherboard features 10 layers of server-grade PCB and VRMs with direct 8 phase 90A SPS power delivery. He also used the motherboards’ DDR4 Boost feature.

Years after year, MSI dominates the memory frequency record to show the strength on overclocking performance. Just in April of 2021, MSI’s in-house overclocker, Kovan, pushes the DDR4 speeds to 7.1GHz, setting another barrier using HyperX Predator memory and the MSI MEG Z590I UNIFY motherboard by liquid nitrogen cooling. Undoubtedly, this is a revolutionary breakthrough for the Intel 11th generation processors for the first time. This world record not only shows MSI’s dominant position on performance for Intel 11th generation processors by using MSI MEG Z590I UNIFY and MSI’s unique and patented DDR4 Boost technology but also reveals team-up power with HyperX Predator DDR4 memory.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
