Online computer hardware stores are filled with enthusiast level of memory kit from different companies and Corsair is one of them. Corsair is one of the leading company when it comes to desktop memory of enthusiast level and today I am going to write about there cheapest memory of enthusiast level, lets first start with it’s hot features.
TWIN2X2048-8500C5D This memory is from Corsair’s Dominator Series, DDR2, 240-Pins, it’s a 2GB matched pair of two 1GB modules. Featuring Corsair’s high performing heat sink Dual-Path Heat Xchange (DHX) technology. These memories are confirmed to function at 1066MHz at CAS latencies of 5-5-5-15.
EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles) allows automatic overclocking to aggressive performance settings, for utmost memory and system functioning. The SPD profiles are called EPP (Enhanced Performance Profiles), jointly developed by Corsair and NVIDIA. EPP is an open standard for memory profiles in the SPD (Serial Presence Detect). It was first introduced to the world at the time of the NVIDIA’s 500 family of chipsets launch and has been expanded since.
If your motherboard supports EPP profiles it will let you easily set aggressive overclocking timings with these Dominator memory modules. You can further enhance the performance of these memories by placing Dominator Airflow Fan, which will help in cooling and protecting these memory modules. This memory comes with Lifetime warranty.
SPD programmed at:
JEDEC standard 5-5-5-18 values at 800MHz
EPP: 1066 MHz, 5-5-5-15-2T, 2.1V
These memory modules features groundbreaking Dual-path Heat Xchange (DHX™) technology, which is a quad-layer heat sink design. DHX technology is the world’s most advanced memory module heat dissipation technology where heat is dissipated through two paths.
This diagram defines Dominator uses two paths for memory cooling:
1-Conventional heat release through the front of the memory chips into a pair of super efficient heat sinks (conductive cooling).
2-Additional dissipation through the back of the memory chips and through the circuit board through heat fins integral to the PCB (convective cooling).
This 2GB DDR2 1066MHz Dual Channel Memory Kit is Priced at just $35.00 after Rebate.
This Dominator Airflow fan kit comes with three 40mm tachometer controlled fans. These fans runs at moderate speed to provide sufficient airflow and stays almost silent while operating. This super-efficient fan kit is designed to attach to the memory clips and float over the Dominator memory modules. Actually this fan kit will work with any DDR-2 or DDR memory modules to provide additional cooling. This Corsair fan kit is very smart in design and is a very secure method for memory cooling than a precarious large fan placed on the top of memory modules.
If you overclock your memory to it’s limits then you should definitely include this 3-fan kit to your memory, regardless of what memory you have. There is not doubt that this give looks to your gaming rig, while it gives your rig nice looks it also take care of the job very well. All it’s nice features makes it a must have for better overclocking performance. Though it’s taller in size Dominator Airflow fan takes similar space as the memory module space, thus fan space requirements are far less than a larger fan sitting on top of the DIMMs.
