Memory maker Corsair has just updated their performance memory line with a couple of new memory modules designed for systems running Intel’s Core i5-750, Core i7-870, and Core-860 Lynnfield processors. The update includes two 4GB kits (2 x 2GB) for the company’s 1600MHz XMS line, and 4GB kits for the 1600MHz Dominator and flagship 2000MHz Dominator GT series.
Both the Dominator and Dominator GT feature CAS 8 latencies and are built with Corsair’s DHX+ (Dual path Heat eXchange) memory cooling tech. The DHX+ feature is basically made up of built-in heatsinks and fins to efficienty spread and dissipate heat for stability and performance on these high-performance modules.
The XMS3 line received four new Lynnfield-compatible memory kits: the two aforementioned 4GB 1600MHz kits (with a C9 and C8 latency), and two 8GB kits. The two 8GB kits come in 4 x 2GB packages with 1333 and 1600MHz frequencies, both of which are designed to take advantage of the enhanced memory management feature on Microsoft’s upcoming 64-bit Windows 7 OS. All the new kits use a low operating voltage of 1.65V or less.
