Ivy Bridge Can Hit Memory Speeds of Over 3GHz on four DIMMs

Yes you heard it right, it will be possible to overclock memory on Intel’s upcoming Ivy Bridge processor. You can overclock the memory over 3 GHz oh yes and that too done on 4 DIMMs is just totally crazy, Intel has surely made some improvements in their memory controller compared to Sandy Bridge.

A member of ‘Sin0822’ posted screenshots of him overclocking his memory past 3 GHz. His setup was an Intel Core i7-3770K coupled with Gigabyte Z77-UD5H and the memory he was using were 4 unnamed G.SKILL modules. UEFI has a 29.33 divider for memory which is something you can’t find in Sandy Bridge hence the reason for high memory overclock.
