2580MHz DDR3 Frequency Reached on Intel X48 Chipset OC3D Official Press Release
 
Corsair®,a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, announced today that its Dominator DDR3 memory modules have again shattered the world record for frequency. The record was set using the Asus ROG Rampage Extreme motherboard (Intel X48 chipset) and Corsair Dominator memory, utilizing Corsair’s award-winning DHX technology.

The world record of 2580 MHz was reached at latency settings of 9-9-9-24 using a Corsair Dominator DDR3 memory module. These results were achieved with an Intel® Core™2 Duo E8400 processor overclocked to a breathtaking 645MHz Front-Side Bus frequency. The results are verified by CPU-Z, an industry standard for verifying overclocking results, and are viewable here: http://valid.x86-secret.com/show_oc.php?id=393648

Corsair previously announced on May 20th its world record of 2462MHz and has now raised the record up to 118MHz faster. Corsair achieved these results as part of ongoing lab experiments on the effect of temperature on memory performance. The 2580MHz memory speed was achieved with the entire test platform -- including motherboard, CPU, chip set, and memory -- chilled to -20 degrees Celsius.

“We are proud that our Dominator Memory once again hit a new world record” said Martin Mueller, Senior Director of Engineering, Corsair. “Our proprietary technology used on Dominator DDR3 allows for incredible overclocking results; we believe our technology is far superior to any other when it comes to overclocking memory modules.”

Corsair Dominator Memory contains ultra fast chips cooled using Corsair’s proprietary Dual-Path Heat Xchange Cooling Technology (DHX). Dominators are used inDell, HP, Alienware and most high performance gaming systems. Corsair Dominator modules are available worldwide through authorized distributors and resellers in a variety of speeds and densities. Corsair memory products are backed by a lifetime warranty. Complete customer support via telephone, email, forum and the Tech Support Express Helpdesk are also available.

Probably a noob question, but why has it got 3 barbs on it?

option of where to put barbs, and adds the possibility of a fill port.

Yup as already said, it allows you to run a Fill Port / Drain Line from the reservoir easily or if you're running components in parallel it accepts both inputs. :)

Basically you could have two "outs" from your res with say 1 going to your cpu and the other to your gfx card and then have them join together afterwards, go to the pump and rad and then back to the "in" of the res. This would mean both components get cool water.

Obviously you could order the loop differently to suit your needs.
