Corsair XMS3 DHX PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) 4GB Kit

3D Game Results

Call of Duty 4
 
Call of Duty 4 is a stunning DirectX 9.0c based game that really looks awesome and has a very full feature set. With lots of advanced lighting, smoke and water effects, the game has excellent explosions along with fast gameplay. Using the in-built Call Of Duty features, a 10-minute long gameplay demo was recorded and replayed using the /timedemo command a total of 5 times. The highest and lowest FPS results were then removed, with an average being calculated from the remaining 3 results.

Crysis
 
Crysis is without doubt one of the most visually stunning and hardware-challenging games to date. By using CrysisBench - a tool developed independently of Crysis - we performed a total of 5 timedemo benchmarks using a pre-recorded demo designed to stress the CPU and Memory subsystem. To ensure the most accurate results, the highest and lowest benchmark scores were then removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Quake4
 
Quake 4 is a game built on the Doom 3 engine. Benchmarking was performed using Quake4Bench and a custom timedemo recording. The benchmark was set to run a total of 5 times, with Quake4Bench automatically calculating an average result at the end of the run.

Unreal Tournament III
 
Unreal Tournament 3 is the highly anticipated game from Epic Games and Midway. The game uses the latest Unreal engine, which combines fast gameplay along with high quality textures and lighting effects. All benchmarks were performed using UTbench to create a bot match on the DM-BioHazard map. As usual, all benchmarks were performed 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining three.

Result Observations
 
Looking first at the results from the Corsair XMS3 kit at its stock speed, we can see that in almost every game benchmark it actually beats out the higher-clocked Crucial and CSX kits. While this may only be by 1-2fps at 1600mhz, increasing the speed to 2000mhz sees the Corsair XMS3 kit further increase its lead.
 
This is undoubtedly shows that gaming with 4GB (especially on Windows Vista) is more beneficial than a high-speed 2GB kit.

"Fancy a 4GB DDR3 kit capable of running at 2000mhz? Corsair's affectionately named TW3X4G1600C9DHXNV kit may just well be what you're after."

That stuff is truly awesome.. 4GB just overclocking 400Mhz with no voltage increase or timing loosening. 4GB DDR3 that reaches 2000MHz that is by the way!!

I don't think that is too expensive as it is really. It's dear but it's also possibly one of the very best!

Nice review m8. Great clocking ram which is not the norm with Corsair - maybe the tide has changed!
