CSX DIABLO DDR3-2000MHz 3GB Triple Channel Memory Kit

Tri-channel memory for Core i7 is now the go and getting speeds out of it at 1.65v or less is tricky, but CSX has its new kit which does just that.

CSX DIABLO DDR3-2000MHz 3GB Triple Channel Memory Kit

 

Introduction

 

Core i7 has now established itself as the high end processor to aspire to, while AMD has little to challenge it with so far. This means that boards and memory kits will be coming out to suit this new processing monster.

 

So far we have looked at a few DDR3 triple channel kits designed to take full advantage of the extreme speeds that Core i7 is able to produce, but one thing Intel has made very tricky with Core i7 is its memory voltage requirements.

 

The Core i7 QPI and memory controller uses a single voltage system that cannot exceed 1.65v, otherwise permanent damage to the QPI and memory controller is possible, which renders the CPU completely useless. For this reason, it provides new challenges to memory companies to get the best speed out of their modules while keeping the voltage as low as possible.

 

Today CSX claims to have made it possible to run this memory at 2000MHz on the Core i7 with only 1.65v fed to them. Let's see what they have in store for us.
