    Corsair PC3200 XL Low Latency RAM Review - The Modules

    (Page 2 of 7 )

    Corsair has given a brief explanation of what their PC3200 XL modules are all about, giving buyers the feeling that these modules will work just fine in about any system.

    • Number of DIMMs, 2
    • Tested as a matched pair in multiple Intel and AMD PC3200 based test setups
    • Tested at DDR 400, 2-2-2-5, 2.75v
    • Plug-n-Frag Auto Configuration, boots automatically with the low latencies
    • Heat-efficiency aluminum XMS heatsink, (large surface area and thermally bonded to the memory chips)
    • 18 activity LEDs show level of memory activity
    • Lifetime warranty

    The most noticeable thing when you look at the PC3200 XL modules is the row of LEDs on the top edge. This is a feature Corsair has been putting on their Pro series modules for the last couple of product cycles. This is great for those who have windowed cases, but the row of LEDs doesn't have any real purpose beyond cosmetic.

    Installation was a breeze, as is typical for memory modules. The heatspreaders, as mentioned in the specifications, are significantly larger than the heatspreaders of typical RAM. This shouldn't cause any problems for anyone using a standard case and motherboard, but it might be something owners of Small Form Factor (SFF) systems will want to double check.

    One nice extra that Corsair provides is a correctly programmed SPD. It seems very few of the correct timings for memory modules are appropriately recognized by the motherboard's BIOS. As the above picture shows the PC3200 XL modules did not have this problem and were correctly identified.
