Packaging, hey we show you everything my man, we always start off with packaging so you know what to look for in the stores -- it's as simple as that really.
Here we have the DIMMs after unpacking. This is the 16GB 2133 MHz kit 4x 4GB DIMMs. Great design, cool that the PCB is black. These DIMMs kits are hand tested per batch and come in matching batch modules.
The heat spreaders are made out of aluminum for good heat conductivity. This kit can manage latencies of 9-11-10-30 at 1.50 Volts, and that is pretty impressive stuff for memory this dense. For optimal stability we do recommend you stick to the manufacturer suggested settings.
Very simple stuff, but the details of the modules can be read from a small sticker. You can spot the SKU code and generic info on there. Also primary info like latencies are displayed (see below).
It is the very same for packaging, it's very good to see voltages being reported on there as well. A lot of memory producers lack this info, yet it is so important. Missing on the sticker is the command rate though, at default that is 2T though.
With expensive memory often come a some extra's, Corsair offers a life-time warranty with these memory modules, you can't beat that. We like the black PCB, styling wise (hey it matters in a high-end cool looking rig) this is a very tasteful kit aesthetically wise.
Mind you that under the top bar LED lighting is present (once powered on) we'll show you that in a tidbit as it's absolutely gorgeous. Also a mini connector is present as you can hook up these DIMMs towards Corsair's LINK system. This is a software suite that allow you to monitor and if possible, control Corsair hardware. For these DIMMS it will be possible to monitor temperature and activity.
