We have just reviewed another overclocker DDR2 SDRAM kit built of Micron D9DQT chips. This time these were the memory modules from Corsair capable of overcoming the 1GHz threshold. Even though Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL memory is very similar to the previously reviewed competitor solutions, it proved to be a little better. It is better not only by the specs: it is claimed to support 1GHz frequency at more aggressive timings of 5-4-4-9. The practical results also suggest its superiority over the rivals, as we have just seen from the performance graph above.
Here I would also like to add that thanks to the smart SPD record, Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL modules do not suffer from any compatibility issues, which are still a problem for a few competitor solutions.
So, Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL memory can become an excellent choice for overclocker systems based on LGA775 processors. This memory works great at high frequencies and supports aggressive timing settings at relatively low working rate. The only thing I could actually consider a drawback of Corsair TWIN2X1024-8000UL (not taking into account their price) is probably the required higher voltage of 2.2V, otherwise, these memory modules won’t boast their brilliant performance any more.
