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).

Corsair RM650 Watt Gold PSU review We review the Corsair RM650 GOLD power supply. Yes, the silent and a bit mainstream RM650 is now Gold certified, that means it's 90% efficient at 50% load. Efficiency matters. The PSU itself is partly modular, for most of you with a side panel window in their chassis a must really as you'll want modular cables. The new PSU also improved on the audibility front. Have a peek at the article.
