For many, the type of memory used is not too much of a concern and the cheapest module is often the most satisfying. However, for overclockers, memory is one of the most important components of the whole PC. Why? Well, on many motherboards as you increase the FSB (front side bus) to overclock your processor, your memory bus, PCI bus and AGP bus all increase in clock speed as well. While some current motherboards now feature dividers that allow you to lock your memory bus at speeds of your choice, your module still needs to be able to run at high speeds while keeping low CAS timings.
For years now, Corsair has been the number one memory manufacturers for overclockers. Not only have their modules been able to reach higher speeds than the competition, but they have also been able to do this while keeping latency timings to a minimum. We have recently had the chance to take a look at Corsair's latest product, XMS3200. Can Corsair continue to raise the bar in the memory market? Read on to find out!
