Corsair has made a name for itself as a quality maker of RAM. Today, we get a chance to take a look at their latest offering, the TwinX1024 4400. At $400 for a 1GB stick, it's easy to question whether this RAM is really worth the cost. With statements like "to date, the Corsair PC4400 is honestly the fastest RAM I have used," coupled with a reputation like Corsair's, this promises to be interesting. Ever wonder how fast is too fast?
Over the last year i875 (Canterwood) and i865 (Springdale) chipsets have become two of the most common chipsets to find inside of a hardware enthusiast's case. Add to that the phenomenal overclockability of Intel's Pentium IV 2.4 GHz 'C' processor, and you have a system with some great potential. However, the one difficulty people have had when overclocking these types of systems is finding memory that is up to the task. Typically, many have to run their systems using the system bus/memory bus ratios of 5:4 or even 4:3 instead of the more optimal 1:1 ratio. There are a variety of memory manufacturers that have been trying to address this need, including Corsair who is one of the most well known and respected memory manufacturers.
Over the last couple of weeks I have had the opportunity to look at Corsair's latest offering, the TWINX1024-4400. From the memory's name you may guess that it is a 1 GB dual channel memory kit rated to run at PC4400 speeds.
