Corsair XMS TWINX2048-3200 2GB Kit



On Corsair's website, there aren't many specifications besides speed, timings, and memory capacity. On the label, the same thing.. which is quite hard to capture on camera as it is holographic.

Neither the website or label tells you the appropriate voltage to run this RAM at, not good if you don't know much about PC's or RAM. I did manage to scrape up specifications from different sources on the internet, though.

Frequency: 400MHz
Latency: 3-3-3-8
Parity: Unbuffered
Voltage: 2.6v
Pins: 184
Chip Density: 64Mx8

The default voltage is very low on this memory, which can prove to be good or bad. We'll see later on in the review. Taking a look at the timings, they seem pretty average for a lower priced set of 2GB RAM, and maybe with some extra voltage we can get them tighter.

Good review Nick. You've made a hiccup on your graphs tho, they all say "Higher is better" at the bottom, which isn't true for SPI and Everest Latency Quote
