Chew* does it again! There I am, waiting for my eyes to bleed as I sit in my cubicle, and suddenly my old pal Chew* delivers this little gem. Apparently Brian has been very busy tweaking his Corsair GTX2′s on Asus’s new Crosshair IV Formula. While playing around with timings and ganged mode, Chew* was able to get his Corsair GTX2 2250MHz C8 sticks all the way to 2022MHz at CAS 6 with just 1.725v!
Additional important specs include an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T, air cooling on everything and a controlled room temp of 22c (72F). The full timings were a tight 6-7-6-18-11 1T – Ganged.
These new AMD Phenom II x6 processors arrived with an improved Integrated Memory Controller which has allowed Brian and other top overclockers to really crank up the speeds on their memory over previous AMD platforms.
So you may be wondering, were these speeds at all stable with these timings and voltages? The answer is, good enough for 32m.
It’s always exciting seeing what the pros can do with new silicon and right now you don’t see too many people doing these speeds at these timings on AMD, even in ganged mode. As usual, I’m sure there will be more where this came from.
