The past 24 hours have been quite good for PC enthusiasts and end users alike, Intel's launch of their LGA2011 socket and accompanying X79 chipset launched quite spectacularly. Now we have a slew of companies releasing their X79-powered gear, with it starting today with Corsair.
Corsair have announced a full line of quad-channel DRAM kits for the LGA2011 socket motherboards, with both Dominator and Vengeance. Dominator is rigorously tested for extreme-performance PCs, with every kit tightly screened as well as including Corsair's DHX+ heatsink patented technology. All Dominator quad-channel kits support Intel's latest XMP 1.3 profiles for easy performance tuning. They are available in 4 sets, 2 of 32GB and 2 in 16GB. The first 32GB kit is at 1866MHz, the second at 1600MHz. The 16GB ramps it up a bit with one kit at 2133MHz and the other at 1866MHz.
Next up Corsair have the Vengeance kits, which are great looking and great for overclocking, all at a great price. Vengeance is designed with overclockers in mind and is built specifically for performance potential. Sporting aluminum heat spreaders that dissipate heat, it also provides an aggressive look that looks awesome in gaming rigs. XMP 1.3 support is here too, and the Vengeance kits come in a much wider range of sizes and speeds.
Right in line with the big launch that is Intel's next generation top tier performance platform comprising LGA-2011 Sandy Bridge-E Core i7 CPUs and its accompanying Quad Channel supporting X79 chipset, G.Skill has announced their latest RipjawsZ series modules in Quad-Channel form to suit.
The new kits come in three flavours. There's a monstrous 64GB kit on offer comprising 8x8GB modules which are rated for a speed of 2133MHz @ 1.5V. Timings are quite relaxed on this kit at CL11-11-11-30.
Next is a 32GB kit comprising 4x8GB modules and rated for 2400MHz with 1.65v. This kit runs timings of CL10-12-12-31.
