Corsair XMS3 DHX DDR3-1600 4GB kit


It is a well known fact that the cooler your components stay, the longer they will work properly. Corsair's new XMS3 DHX TW3X4G1600C9DHXNV 4GB DDR3 kit uses special DHX heatspreader technology so that the PCB board comes in direct contact with the heat spreader. Today, TechwareLabs benchmarks the DDR3 kit to see if it performs as well as it looks.

Corsair's Take:

"The TW3X2G1600C9DHXNV is a 4096MByte kit of DDR3 SDRAM DIMMs based upon Corsair’s high performance XMS3 DHX family of memory which is certified as SLI–Ready Memory. NVIDIA EPP2.0 SLI-Ready system memory certification ensures compatibility and system stability with the rest of the SLI ecosystem components including NVIDIA nForce SLI motherboards, NVIDIA GeForce GPUs, and SLI-Ready power supplies. Specifically, when these memory modules are paired with NVIDIA nForce SLI-based motherboards, advanced performance memory settings are enabled. Built using Corsair’s Dual-path Heat Xchange (DHX) technology, this part delivers outstanding performance with NVIDIA-based DDR3 motherboards and has been tested extensively to ensure compatibility and performance at its rated speed. This memory has been verified to operate at 1600MHz at latencies of 9-9-9-24 at 1.8V VDIMM."
