High-speed memory modules from Corsair and OCZ that we have discussed today are remarkable achievements of the companies’ RND and engineering teams. To hit breakneck speeds that are still unattainable for solutions from other manufacturers of overclocker memory, Corsair Company developed special heat-spreaders with original design, while OCZ Technologies focused on the option to use liquid-cooling solutions on their memory. We can consider the efforts of both companies extreme success: the Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-9136C5D, OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 FlexXLC Edition and Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF memory kits tested today work stably at 1150MHz and 1250MHz frequencies respectively with 5-5-5-15 timings. At the same time, these memory modules can also function with aggressive timing settings that may sometimes ensure even higher system performance.
In other words, an overclocker who decides to purchase any of these memory kits will undoubtedly be able to find the most optimal work mode for his/her specific needs. And this is one of the major advantages of expensive high-speed memory kits like that: with this memory in your system, you shouldn’t have any issue with overclocking or system optimization for maximum performance. Memory like that will ensure maximum level of performance in almost any configuration.
Considering good results obtained during our overclocking experiments and performance tests we decided to award the following two kits of overclocker DDR2 SDRAM with our prestigious Editor’s Choice award:
- Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF
- OCZ DDR2 PC2-9200 FlexXLC Edition
