Aorus DDR5 Flexes LN2 Overclock to New World Record

Posted on


Gigabyte Team overclocker HiCookie has achieved a new DDR5 speed world record. Using a single 16GB stick of Aorus branded DDR5 RGB memory, HiCookie hit and verified 5,011 MHz, or DDR5-10022 (10,022 MT/s). This is just a smidgeon faster than MSI Team chalked up in a milestone achievement earlier in the week, but a record is a record. It is also interesting to see some significant diversity among the component choices – there appears to be no ‘winning formula,’ but DDR5 consumer platforms are Intel-only for now.

In the video above, you can see the DDR5-10022 world record-breaking moment captured as it happened. The excitement of HiCookie and teammates can be heard as the DRAM frequency edges upwards. After DDR5-10000 is achieved, there is an anxious wait before we see it hit a new world record. It is then tweaked higher again, with the team settling and verifying 5,011 MHz or DDR5-10022. As well as sharing the on-screen CPU-Z DRAM Frequency readout, we see Hicookie verify the frequency of his DDR5 memory stick using a bench oscilloscope.

We commented earlier on the component choice diversity shown with the two recent DDR5 world records. As part of Team Gigabyte, Hicookie used as many home-team branded components as possible. Housing the Intel Core i9-12900K was a Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Tachyon motherboard. HiCookie has apparently been instrumental in the design of this motherboard.

The memory being put through its paces is said to be Gigabyte-branded with reference ARS32G70D5C32. This will be Aorus branded memory, one stick of a 32GB matched kit, and Aorus PR says it is an RGB LED module. However, there is no DDR5 memory on Gigabyte’s product pages with this exact model reference. As this is an overclocking record attempt by Team Gigabyte, it isn’t surprising that perhaps unreleased or special edition memory gets put through its paces by HiCookie and colleagues.

The MSI Team world record from earlier in the week, now beaten into second place, relied on the following key components: an Intel Core i9-12900KS fixed to an MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboard with a single 16GB stick of Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 RAM.
