An overclocker acheived almost DDR5-8000 with ASRock’s Z690 Aqua OC Motherboard and Teamgroup memory

A US based overclocker has achieved an impressive DDR5-7960 MHz speed with Asrock’s Z690 Aqua OC motherboard on air cooling.  The result was impressive in that it was achieved with an air cooled system made up of an Intel Core i9 12900K, Asrock Z690 Aqua OC motherboard and a TeamGroup T-Force Delta RGB 16GB module. MllrKllr  (via wccftech) is confident that he can achieve more when he switches over to ln2 cooling.

ASRock’s Z690 Aqua series motherboards are ultra premium options that sit at the top end of Asrock’s range. They compete with the likes of the Asus Maximus Extreme, Gigabyte Extreme Waterforce and MSI Godlike. But what’s interesting is that there are two Aqua variants, one of which is an OC version with just two RAM slots. It’s a little strange that such a motherboard even exists as a board that’s designed for extreme overclocking doesn’t need all the bells and whistles that come included with a flagship motherboard.
