PRODUCT COMPOSITION & WALKTHROUGH (cont'd)



What makes the heatspreader a little bigger is the incorporated activity LEDs that I mentioned earlier. Although they are a little hard to make out in this actual photo, you will see them in all their glory via a small movie clip I made.

Consider the activity LEDs as more of an aesthetic addition to a windowed case rather than a trouble shooting mechanism.




As an anti-counterfeit measure, Corsair labels each and everyone of its sticks of memory with a holographic sticker complete with the memory information.


Make sure you are getting true Corsair Memory by verifying this label.

 

MEMORY OVERCLOCKING


To test the memory's ability to overclock, I relaxed the timings to 3-8-4-4, locked the divider at the stock setting of 1:1, maxed the memory voltage at 2.8volts and bumped up front side bus until I was able to reach the maximum FSB which had no memory problems and could run all the benchmarking flawlessly with no problems.


Here are the results:


Stock: DDR400
Maximum Memory Overclock : DDR502!!!!!


As you can see, a 102Mhz increase in speed is an outstanding overclock and I can assure you, the performance difference was seen throughout the computer's benchmarking. To show you what difference I personally recorded, the results will be included in the benchmarking for your comparison.
