OC3D Review: Corsair DDR3 CL8 1600MHz XMS3 Dominator 6GB Kit

Looking to go i7? Unsure of what DDR3 to buy. Take a look at Corsairs Triple channel DDR3 1600mhz kit before you decide.

Good review but the benchmarks seem a bit flawed as the CPU was overclocked as well.

Unfortunatley, simply using the memory dividers resulted in the memory being unstable (1866mhz). I could have lowered the CPU divider and adjusted the Bclk frequency but no configuration would have left the CPU frequency exact unless I forfeited some memory speed.

We now have some OCZ (same spec as the Corsair) which should give a better comparison, stock vs stock.

Just FYI, the price in the review is a little high. You can also get the kit from Scan (pre-order atm) and CCL for ~£228 inc VAT.

6GB Dominator at Scan = tinyurl.com/6jnwb4

6GB Dominator at CCL = tinyurl.com/5s4f83

Hi Blackbeard (What happened to Yellowbeard?).

We are now retail partners with Ebuyer so it would be inappropriate to advertise products for sale at a major competitor.

just got a newer revision of this kit (ver3.2) and they're much better than the ver2.1's, scaling well with voltage and lowered timings

i'm not going to try to say these are even remotely stable, but i managed 2000 8-8-8-24 with some extra voltage:

and 2000 9-9-9 with 1.66v, so there's prolly more in them.



considering the ver2.1's i tried wouldn't even post much higher than 1650, these sticks act completely different in every respect.
