Corsair also offered us another 2GB kit they produce, TWINX2048-4000PT. These memory modules have been shipped for much longer than the rather recently released TWINX2048-3500LLPRO. They appeared back at the times of Socket 478 systems and this is probably why the Corsair website mentions factory tests of such modules on an out-dated ASUS P4C800 mainboard. Still, you can buy a TWINX2048-4000PT kit even today, especially since it has become cheaper and thus more affordable.
These modules have the classic appearance of a Corsair product which means they have molded aluminum heatsinks that contact the chips through a special thermal pad and are additionally braced up with a steel wire clamp. The heatsinks on our modules are made of uncolored aluminum and carry the manufacturer’s logo. The same modules are also available with black anodized heatsinks for true aesthetes.
The sticker on one side of each module tells you the module’s part number, frequency, capacity, default timings. The full specification looks as follows:
- Frequency: 500MHz DDR
- Timings: 3-4-4-8 at 1T Command Rate
- Voltage: 2.6V
- The kit includes two 184-pin unbuffered non-ECC modules of DDR SDRAM, 1024MB each
- The modules are equipped with unpainted aluminum heatsinks
- Lifetime warranty
Like the above-described modules from Corsair, the TWINX2048-4000PT kit doesn’t require to increase the voltage over 2.6V for normal use. It means you can use these modules on various mainboards, including those that don’t offer you the option to adjust the DIMM voltage. The chips in these modules are different, made by Samsung, so the TWINX2048-4000PT differs a lot from the TWINX2048-3500LLPRO kit.
