How is this guy benchmarking so high on his late 2015 retina iMac? I'm benching in the high 3k's for single ore and mid 13's for multi core benches.

https://browser.primatelabs.com/geekbench3/4914674

I have the same specs on my machine, i7, 395x and 1tb SSD. I also have 32gb of ram, granted mine is crucial 1600, not 2666 like his. Does anybody know where to get 2666 ram for the retina iMac? How is he running at that speed when the spec ram is 1867? That's crazy! I'm confused.

Can the ram make that much of a difference? Does anybody know where I can purchase ram that performs like this?

Well, I don't know where he got the 2666 RAM, but here is mine with 2133.

That hyper X looks nice. I will probably just purchase that... But that guy's benches are just insane.

I don't think he's running a hackintosh or running in boot camp, I believe I wish geek bench had s community where I could just ask him what's up.

In all honesty, I'm not sure the RAM is going to make the difference you expect.
Look at my figures 4254 and 15942. When I had 1867 RAM, the figures were 4095 and 15566. So, less than 5% improvement.
The guy's figures you quote are 4551 and 17689, only 7% and 10% higher than mine, and as his RAM is 25% faster, the results are not unexpected, I would say.
