Patented DHX (Dual-Path Heat Xchange) Technology Delivers Record-Breaking Speeds
 
Corsair® http://www.corsair.com, a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that new record-breaking speeds have been achieved within the Corsair DDR2 and DDR3 lines of DRAM memory.

Maximum Performance & Extreme Over-Clocking for Demanding Gaming Enthusiasts

Available by the end of February, two new Corsair 4GB DDR2 module speed grades are being offered for high-performance enthusiast users: Corsair 1066MHz (PC2-8500) and 1142MHz (PC2-9136) 4GB memory kits (2X2GB). The new memory modules utilize Corsair’s patented DHX technology, which employs a specially designed quadruple heat sink to dissipate heat through both convection and conductive methods. The results are maximum performance and extreme over-clocking capability for the demanding gaming enthusiast.

“Pushing the limits of new memory technologies, architectures and densities is what Corsair is known for,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Corporate Marketing at Corsair. “These latest announcements will clearly impress our highly demanding enthusiast customers, as well as push Corsair even farther into the lead as the world’s fastest memory solutions manufacturer,” added Peterson.

Recent next generation platform testing using the latest DDR3 technologies, highest density DRAM parts, as well as Corsair DHX cooling solutions has proven that memory modules with performance speeds reaching over 2000MHz (PC3-16000) are now ready for production. The modules operate at faster memory bus speeds than currently available 1800MHz solutions.

The DOMINATOR line from Corsair has been the world’s leader in high-performance memory solutions and continues to lead the way with the addition of four new DDR3 DHX memory kits. These new modules will be available in 2GB configurations and are expected to be available this quarter.

“Since DDR3 was announced, the industry has been struggling to break through the 2GHz barrier,” said John Beekley, VP Applications at Corsair. “Combining our DHX Technology and extensive work with chipset developers on Bios modification, Corsair’s recent lab test results indicate that not only is 2GHz production memory going to be available, but there is plenty of room for further speed improvements.”

All Corsair memory modules are available through Corsair’s authorized distributors and resellers world-wide. Corsair DRAM products are backed by a Lifetime Limited Warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and TS Xpress is also available. For more information on Corsair High-Performance Memory, please visit http://www.corsair.com.

Ok so I found an old 939 chip on a shelf in my sisters old room.. Think it was a 3200+ that I forgot I had.

Anyway decided to give lapping it a go just to see how it came out and here are the results:

(Pics not best as were taken on my phone)

I could do with some gel or paste to get the true flashy finish but this is pretty shiny none the less.

I first lapped on a Celeron, cut off a good 10oC, I was quite suprised.

Cheers man. I can't test this as I haven't got a mobo it will fit in and I can't remember what temps it used to get.

As for the emails, well, all junk. Some from the game I'm beta testing and others from a stupid facebook style site someone has signed me up for but its a seedy version of it... Getting about 15 - 20 a day.. Should die down soon though.. If not I'll stop being lazy and try and get my email taken off it.
