As for the disk itself, 6665.4 MHz was specifically achieved, which CPU-Z specifies as DDR4-6666, obviously using liquid nitrogen on the processor to cool the memory controller and on the memories to raise the frequencies to the maximum possible level. When looking for the maximum frequency, the latencies should be as high as possible to avoid becoming a limitation. For this reason the latencies 31-63-63-3 were used, which is the maximum allowed by the motherboard.
