Conclusion

So, thanks to Corsair who have introduced to overclockers Samsung DDR3 memory chips, 4GB memory kits can easily overclock to the same frequencies as the existing 2GB DDR3 SDRAM kits for overclockers. In other words, Corsair Company appeared one of the first makers of overclocker DDR3 SDRAM to launch a two-module DDR3-1800 kit with 4GB total capacity. And it means that those overclockers who wish to equip their systems with 4GB of memory do not have to settle for compromises any more. Corsair Dominator TW3X4G1800C8DF G kit of 2 memory modules 2GB each keeps the other two DIMM slots in your system free and available for future upgrades and ensures that you will not face any possible compatibility and overclocking issues caused by using 4 memory modules at once.

Nevertheless, I have to say that Corsair Dominator TW3X4G1800C8DF G includes double-sided DDR3 SDRAM modules that may, unfortunately, be incompatible with certain mainboards. Also, the price of this solution of around $490 is a little discouraging at first. DDR3 SDRAM prices still remain pretty high, so a lot of users out there still stick with the good old DDR2 SDRAM for that particular reason.

However, as we have shown in our previous articles, DDR3-1800 SDRAM provides better performance during overclocking especially in system equipped with 4GB of RAM. From this prospective, Corsair Dominator TW3X4G1800C8DF G that can run at 1800MHz with 8-8-8-24 timings is an excellent choice for hard-edged overclocking fans hunting for maximum system performance at any rate. Especially since there are no other 4GB memory kits in the market today that could offer similar characteristics, and buying two 2GB DDR3 memory kits with the same parameters may end up being even more expensive.
