With the early nature of the kit we received, Corsair didn't supply any retail packaging. In fact, these were the modules we used for our initial Core i7 processor review. While they came in protective blisters, these aren't what the retail market will see them shipped with. For this reason we didn't take any pictures as we don't want to confuse you.
The modules sprout the DHX memory heatspreader designed for maximum cooling, allowing for even the smallest air flow profile to help cool the modules. The raised fins on the top allow for the heat to be transmitted away from the modules and up higher; this keeps the memory cells cooler and allows for higher clock speeds. When combined with the Dominator fan unit you can keep the modules even cooler.
On one side of each module Corsair placed a sticker with the specs. The kit sent to us comprised of three memory modules with 2GB capacity, totalling 6GB. Speed wise, they are rated for 1600MHz using an 8-8-8-24 timing profile and a maximum voltage of 1.65.
Now, while these modules are based around the same cells that we have seen do 1.9v or 2.0v, Corsair has tuned them down and for a good reason. Intel has stated that the on-die memory controller gets its power from the QPI voltage rail and this is limited to 1.65v. If you attempt to go above this you risk permanent damage to the memory and QPI, rendering the CPU totally useless.
