What happens when you put a high-end tuning and gaming component in the hands of three world-class overclockers on a world stage like Computex 2012? Records get broken. Fredyama-san, Shamino and Hiwa Pouri smashed three world records with the ASUS ROG Maximus V Formula motherboard.

Now bear with us as things get a little bit technical at this point.

The test set-up

SuperPi 32M:
Veteran overclockers Fredyama-san and Shamino together achieved a G.SKILL timing of CL 5-9-7-18 1T DDR3 to a world record speed of 2,646MHz; while at the same time clocking a SuperPI 32M of 4 minutes 44.734 seconds.

Memory Bandwidth:
Not to be outdone, Hiwa Pouri showed off the full potential of the Maximus V Formula and Intel® Core™ i7 3770K processor by pushing G.SKILL TridentX CL10 1T DDR3 to a new memory bandwidth read speed of 32,339MB/s.

DDR3 16 Memory Frequency:
Utilizing the same Maximus V Formula with the Intel® Core™ i7 3770K processor, Hiwa Pouri once again showed his overclocking prowess by pushing G.SKILL TridentX 16GB CL11 DDR3 to a new world record frequency of 3286MHz.

Thanks to the handy work of Shimano, Hiwa Pouri and Fredyama-san, these records are now testament to ROG’s insistence on the finest engineering, components, and overclocking features when it comes to its products.
