Memory accounts for a huge part of system performance, and sometimes its quality is just as important as the size. Corsair has rolled out 2 GB kits of DDR400 in their XMS Pro line, which look really fast. Some are still speculating that the improvement over 1 GB kits is minimal, but read todayís review to see how this memory performs.
Memory from Corsair is known as some of the best in the industry. For over 10 years, they have produced high speed modules that have become know for being widely compatible with loads of motherboards. Because of this, Corsair has won awards from numerous motherboard manufacturers. While more expensive than a lot of the cheap electronic store memory, youíll see that you get what you pay for.
The memory we are testing today is one of Corsairís XMS products, also known as Xtreme Memory Speed. This is their premium line of RAM thatís designed for performance and gaming, so the latencies are good, and the chips include ample heatsinks. The XMS Xpert series even lets you program its LEDs to flash in particular orders or spell things. The particular test sample we have today is the XMS Pro model.
The packaging looks good, and so do the specs. Itís a huge 2GB capacity dual-channel kit, and itís one of Corsairís most popular products. The timings arenít as aggressive as some of their other models, but itís a good performer built to satisfy most users.
Package: 2 x 184-pin DIMM
Heat Spreader: Black XMS ProSeries, with 18 activity LEDs showing the level of memory activity
