G.Skill brought their “A game” to this year’s Computex 2011 show by shattering the current super Pi 32M record on the first day of the show. With the help of famous overclockers Shamino, Fredyama, and Young Pro, the team was able to achieve a time of 5min 33.172 seconds. Using the company’s DDR3 2400MHz CL8 4 (2x2GB) memory kit, the team achieved the record overclock using an Intel 2600K processor at 6.34Ghz and memory clocked at 2340MHz with a CAS Latency of 6-9-6-25 1T. This was all run on an Asus ROG maximum IV Extreme motherboard.

Considering that the memory still had some headroom before reaching even stock clocks, G.Skill is confident that they will break even their record, saying that “this is just the beginning, we aim to achieve more records before the close of Computex 2011.”

The super Pi 32M program is often used as both a benchmarking and stress test application as it heavily stresses both the CPU, memory controller, and RAM by calculating Pi out to 32 million digits. As a single threaded program, it is heavily dependent on CPU clock speed-which is why the G.Skill team focused on low RAM timings as well as getting the CPU clocks up as high as possible in order to grab the world record.

This is what happens when non-tech people try to write articles about technology.

Easy. It's obviously not Mhz, it's easy to get them mixed up, especially when you're in Taiwan, with however many hours difference, and your writing 3 posts every minute.

If you didn't read its the world record FOR the 1155 Intel Platform not for every computer.
