Well, most solder starts to melt around 180C, so I can't imagine anything past that.

Still, as always impractical. Just because you can load 600 people in astronaut suits onto a super jet and fly above the normal ceiling does not mean you should. But hey, it could be done.

[citation][nom]jemm[/nom]I also had seen that is -120°C -- anyway at that speed I am not surprised that they had to set the latencies very high.[/citation]
Not really that high considering the speed. i think 2400MHz RAM sticks have CAS @ at around 11.

It's about testing the limits and pushing the boundaries.

I fkn hate people like you.
 
Tom's it's just one paragraph and a few other sentences. Couldn't you go at least that far without several mistakes in the *article*?

At 14-14-14-36 T2, it's still extremely low latency for system RAM with such a high frequency as 3.9GHz effective.

EDIT: For perspective on this, a timing of 14 at almost 4GHz effective is a little worse than a timing of 5.5 at effective 1.6GHz. 36 (in the same comparison) is about equal to 15.
 
It's not the fastest RAM, not even close. It is probably the fastest DDR3 module record, but that's not the same as being the fastest RAM like being the fastest house cat isn't the same as being the fastest cheetah.

You guys make me feel a lot less conservative! ;)
