Corsair® Dominator GT DDR3 Memory Hits 2533MHz, Sets World Record for DDR3 Memory Frequency
Fremont, CA, May 20th, 2009 - Corsair® http://www.corsair.com, announced today that Corsair Labs has set the world record for DDR3 frequency on a Core i7 system.
Corsair Labs achieved an astounding speed of DDR3-2533MHz with the aggressive memory timings of 7-8-7-20 using a triple-channel 6GB memory kit. This new world record, verified and validated by CPU-Z, the industry-standard tool for verifying overclocking results, is the first time this frequency has been achieved on a Core i7 system with 6GB of memory using three modules; most world record attempts use only a single 1GB module. Corsair Labs engineers used the award-winning Dominator GT 2000C7 memory with eVGA's X58 3X SLI Classified motherboard to shatter the world record for memory frequency.

"When it comes to overclocking and memory, Corsair has proven-once again-that its engineering team truly is the best", said Kevin Conley, Vice President of Engineering for Corsair, "As the new world record shows, Corsair's modules are second-to-none in terms of performance, stability and quality."
Corsair Labs selected the new EVGA X58 Classified motherboard for setting this new world record, along with a Corsair HX1000W power supply and the newly-announced Corsair Storage Solutions P256 SSD, creating a system truly designed for maximum performance.
"eVGA is thrilled to learn that Corsair was able to set a new world record memory frequency on our motherboard. Our goal was to create the best overclocking motherboard on the planet for Intel Core i7 processors and these results prove it," said Joe Darwin, Director of Technical Marketing at eVGA, "When paired with Corsair's ultra-high performance Dominator GT memory, we've not only met our goal, we've blown it away."
All Corsair Dominator GT modules are built using the patent-pending DHX+ (Dual-path Heat eXchange) heatsink, which uniquely cools both the front and back of the memory ICs, and the printed circuit board, for greater reliability and increased overclocking flexibility. All Dominator GT products also ship with the Corsair Airflow fan as standard, which maximizes airflow over the module's cooling fins, increasing heat dissipation to improve memory performance and reliability.
DHX+ modules feature removable heatsink fins, which allows for range of Dominator GT cooling options, including the Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H30 waterblock and Ice Series T30 thermo-electric cooler, which actively cools the modules up to 20°C below ambient temperature for maximum overclockability.
