TWINX2048-3500LLPRO memory kit was one of the first 2 GB kits to use very aggressive CAS latency (CAS 2) with a 219 MHz (DDR438) clock. Corsair scored a point here.
Infineon BE-5 chips used on Corsair module support a stable overclocking up to 260 MHz. We were able to configure over 260 MHz, but the system wasn’t stable for 3D applications, corrupting textures.
Patriot modules also use Infineon chips but from CE-5 revision, which have a higher overclocking capability. The good news is that newer kits from Corsair are also coming with Infineon CE-5 chips.
This kit from Corsair is perfect for the users that like low latency memories, being able to go up to 220 MHz with very low latencies (2-3-2-5) with an operating voltage of only 2.6 V.
With 18 LEDs blinking while it is working, this kit is perfect for users that have a case with transparent side window. But it is time for Corsair to make a facelift on their modules. It’s been more than two years with the same look.
