DDR2 SDRAM kit from Corsair - Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL – consists of two identical memory modules, 512MB each, certified to work at 1GHz frequency and preliminarily tested on an Intel 955X based mainboard. Note that Corsair doesn’t offer any solutions of larger capacity identical to TWIN2X1024-8000UL: the 2GB overclocker kits from Corsair cannot boast such attractive specifications. Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL kit is shipped in a traditional plastic package, which contains the modules themselves and the illustrated quick installation guide with some hints about proper installation of the memory modules into the DIMM slots.
The memory modules are covered with Corsair’s standard heat-spreaders of glossy black color. There is a white inscription of the Corsair’s official web-site URL on the heat-spreaders: www.corsairmemory.com, and a few stickers. One of these stickers with Corsair and XMS2 logos is for decoration only, while the other one is certainly more informative. It tells the module marking, its capacity, nominal frequency and timings.
Here I would like to say that even though the modules we are reviewing today are called Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL, each of the modules from the kit has its own individual name: CM2X512-8000UL. This is the product marking that is given on the stickers. As for the general name of the entire kit, you can only see it on the back side of the plastic package.
