Corsair shows off PC10000 and new RAM cooler


Our first stop for Day 1 was at Corsair who showcased their products in a suite at the Grand Hyatt hotel.


As usual, Corsair usually save something special for Computex each year - usually to out do any other memory company at the show. Without fail, they managed to surprise us with an AMD Athlon FX-62 based system with XMS DDR-2 memory modules running at an incredible 1252MHz DDR (or PC10000) on an ASUS nVidia nForce 590 SLI motherboard.


This was achieved by setting the CPU HTT to 313MHz which made the FX-62 processor run a little over 3.1GHz. The timings were 5-5-5-18 with a command rate of 2T. Not too shabby at all, we think!





Next on the list from Corsair is a new memory cooler which is due to come out soon - they are just waiting on some branding name decisions to be made. The cooler comes with a total of three fans which assist in providing a better memory overclocking experience. Apparently the fan plugs into a normal 3-pin motherboard fan connector which means the BIOS should be able to take care of all the thermal controls.



Corsair are also putting the finishing touching on their new SLI water block which works with the already released Corsair Nautilus 500 external water cooling system.



Oh, and thanks for the 1GB Voyager pen drive guys!
