The heatspreader is designed to enhance heat dissipation allowing better tweaks and overclocks. As a result this is not 100% low profile memory though. The idea is that heat is moved away from the actual memory chips and this increases potential overclocking and stability. Still with this design any cooler in close vicinity of the memory should install just fine. Thanks to that metal bar the memory is very sturdy and can be inserted into the DIMM slots with ease.
This memory is ALL about good looks so I decided to throw in an extra page with just photo's of the memory. The photo above says it all really.
Once we power up the system you can see a diffuse white light emitting from the downside of the metal bar, these are LEDs. Nothing the flashy or extreme, done very subtle. Me likey...
In fact here you can see that a little better, this is roughly what you'll see in twilight conditions. Photography wise it would have helped if the motherboard and VGA card wouldn't have these intensely bright LEDs as well :)
As stated the memory used is PC3-17066 (2133MHz) which you can use on Intel based systems. In the BIOS just flick the XMP 1.3 compatible profile, and you'll be up and running at advertised speeds. The memory itself is compatible with Intel Z77, X79, Z68 and P67 platforms. Mind you that 1600 MHz kits are available as well, shaving off a lot of the pricing.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
