The memory itself is maximize the utmost stability and a user friendly experience. Featuring a new PCB (printed circuit board), internal cooling layers and external copper thermal pads meant to hold aluminum fins with DHX (dual-path heat exchange) the DIMMs are bound to impress.
Quickly counted there are are twelve kits in Corsairs line-up. Four of them have 8 GB capacities, six are 16 GB sets, one has 32 GB and the last one is a 64 GB kit. The four 8 GB kits are made up of two 4 GB modules each, functioning at 1,600 MHz, 1,866 MHz or 2,133 MHz. The 16 GB kits have either two 8 GB modules (1,600 / 1,800 MHz) or four 4 GB ones (1,866 MHz / 2,400 MHz / 2,666 MHz / 2,800 MHz). The 32 GB kit is made of four 8 GB modules working at 2,133 MHz each. The 64 GB offering, composed of eight 8 GB modules, is rated at 2,133 MHz.
Once installed in the BIOS if supported, select the XMP profile for the memory and after a reboot you are good to go -- really it's that simple. If you do not have an XMP profile option in your BIOS, set the 9-11-10-30 timing manually and set DIMM voltage a little higher to 1.60... this literally is 10 seconds work (we always advise 0.10V higher for better stability).
