While Intel 12th generation Alder Lake processors are starting to go on sale, overclocking trials continue to come one after another. We recently saw the Core i9-12900K reach 8.0 GHz and DDR5 memory up to 8300 MHz. Now, MSI’s in-house overclocking specialist TOPPC has spotted 8670 MHz with Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 memory and MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboards.

MSI MEG Z690 Unify-X motherboards have a dual DIMM design specifically designed for memory overclocking. The memory used was the Kingston Fury Beast DDR5 model and reached 8670 Mbps, an 80% increase compared to the standard DDR5-4800 JEDEC standard.

AORUS, on the other hand, used the flagship Z690 Tachyon motherboard and achieved tremendous frequencies such as 1.812V voltage on Intel Core i9-12900K and 8 GHz on LN2 cooling. Overclocking was done on all 8 Performance cores based on the Golden Cove architecture.

With the release of Alder Lake, we will see many more overclocking attempts. It wouldn’t be surprising if we see much higher frequency speeds, especially in trials for DDR5 memory. In this context, the success of the memory controllers used by Intel in its 12th generation CPUs is also proven.
