HAS HIS was the last company to hit a new overclocking record for RAM DDR5and this was possible thanks to its motherboard ROG Maximus Z690 APEX, and of course, the LUPIN_NO_MUSUME overclock. The rest of the material was formed using a Intel Core i9-12900K limited to 4 P-Cores enabled at 3.70 GHz, and of course, support for liquid nitrogen so that nothing catches fire.

Unfortunately, nothing is mentioned about the DDR5 RAM used, so its manufacturer is unknown. It was only announced that it was a stick of 16 GB capacity at a base speed of 4800 MHz and which managed to reach the 10552MHz with latencies CL127-120-120-120-127-2 (tCAS-tRCD-tRP-tRAS-tRC-tCR). So we talk about multiply by 2.2 times the factory speed of memory. This record thus replaces that of a gigabyte reached two weeks ago, taking the memory up to 10223 MHz.

ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX - DDR5 overclocking record

It should be noted that the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 APEX is the company’s high-end motherboard, which features a VRM with 24 power stagesso it requires two aluminum heat sinks with a copper heat pipe for its perfect functioning, to which is added the power supply via a 24 pin ATX connector as well as 2x EPS 8+8 pin to obtain its full potential. The information is completed by a pair of steel-reinforced PCI-Express 5.0 x16 lanes, 5 M.2 ports, WiFI 6E, USB 3.2 Gen2x2 ports with Quick Charge 4+ fast charging, and an LED lighting key could not not miss.

This motherboard is currently around the 850 euros. Whoever bought it will pay, since they can at least reuse it for the new Intel Raptor Lake processors.
