Corsair Memory, the number one overclockers- and computer enthusiasts-oriented memory maker according to our last week’s survey, announced its new series of memory modules with RAM activity LEDs and improved heat-spreaders. Soon to be available worldwide, the ProSeries memory modules continue the traditions of eXtreme Memory Speed series offered by Corsair.
The new ProSeries XMS memory at available in 400 and 500MHz speeds, including such products as TwinX-1024-4000PRO (2x512MB DDR500 modules), TwinX-1024-3200C2PRO (2x512MB DDR400 modules), CMX512-4000PRO (DDR500 module), CMX512-3200C2PRO (PC3200 module).
Corsair’s new highly-efficient heat-spreaders were designed especially for the XMS ProSeries. They are crafted from cast aluminum to offer excellent thermal qualities. Its mini fins maximize air surface contact area to draw heat away from the memory chips and dissipate it quicker. You may notice embossed XMS letters on the sides and special DRAM activity LEDs on the top.
XMS ProSeries modules feature a row of LEDs on the top edge that display real-time memory activity level. Corsair is the first company to ever offer an activity meter on the module itself. Corsair invented this feature for the growing legions of enthusiasts and gamers who use windowed chassis, so they can tell at a glance the current level of memory activity. Each memory bank has a row of nine dedicated activity LED’s that alight as the level of memory activity increases.
Pricing of the novelties was not announced.
