Dual Channel Memory Roundup - Part 2 - Corsair PC3500

Corsair PC3500

 

Around 12 to 18 months ago Corsair was a big player in the performance memory arena. Fortunately more companies popped up and the competition has become quite fierce - Memory got faster, prices got lower and such companies as TwinMOS, OCZ and etc started battling it out for top spot in the performance arena.

 

We are looking at three sets of Corsair memory this time around starting with the PC3500 or DDR433.

 

 

Specifications

 

Module Size: 2 X 256 MB

 

Package: 184-pin LONG DIMM

 

Naming: DDR PC3500

 

Speed: 433MHz

 

Voltage: 2.6

 

CAS Latency: 2

 

Packaging

 

Corsair have started to use retail packaging across the board which gives off a more professional feel to the memory. Going to your local computer store and receiving memory in proper retail packaging is a lot nicer then getting two modules handed straight over to you in nothing or Anti-Static bag. The same packaging is also seen on another set of modules which we will look at later on in the article.

 

Modules

 

Corsair PC3500 is rated at DDR433 which isn't a huge increase over default memory speeds. What we hope to find out is if these particular modules will give us a performance increase worth considering. Corsair has always carried a bit of a premium as they are known for being one of the better overclockers on the market. We will have a look and see what they can do for our system today.
