Acceleration to frequency 5726 MHz provided the most efficient cooling

This year a record for DDR4 overclocking was beaten three times. The first time happened on 14 January, when overclockers used the Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4, reaching the frequency of 5608 MHz. Then on may 13, a private testing laboratory ADATA has released one 8 GB memory bar Spectrix D60G DDR4, dispersed it to 5634,1 MHz. But the record lasted until may 16, and was beaten by a team Overclocking Gaming Systems.
