MSI managed to achieve DDR4 overclocking record with 7156 MHz memory speed.MSI’s MEG Z590I UNIFY mini-ITX motherboard and an 8GB HyperX Predator 2400 memory module have reached 7156 MHz and broke a new DDR4 record.
Kovan Yang from MSI memory overclocking team has also demonstrated the motherboard’s overclocking capability in this sense.
The Z590 is a flagship chipset based on Intel’s LGA 1200 socket. The MEG Z590I UNIFY is also among the top models. LGA 1200 is Intel’s newest socket that supports the company’s 11th generation Rocket Lake-S processors and is also backward compatible with the latest generation Comet Lake-S processors.

The previous record was achieved by another overclocker named Hocayu, which reached 7100 MHz using the Asus ROG MAXIMUS XIII APEX. In both cases, let’s underline that Core i9-11900KF is used as the processor.
On the other hand, in this new record achieved by MSI, the CAS Latency (CL) value is reported as 58. The previous record was achieved with a CAS Delay of 31, which showed that Hodja’s kit was much faster right out of the box. The processor, on the other hand, was not lowered by Yang much in terms of clock speed compared to Hodja’s. Note that in both scenarios, liquid nitrogen is used to cool the memory module.
