1GB Kit Corsair XMS4000Thu, Jul 31, 2003 - 9:00 AM
The XMS4000 TwinX DDR Modules came in a recyclable plastic box that contained no manual. If you need installation help with DDR500 memory you are best off staying away from your system anyway!
An important factor in buying memory is the warranty. Corsair’s memory products carry a lifetime warranty. This means that Corsair products are guaranteed to operate, as specified by their datasheet and in the operating environment for which they were intended, for the life of the product. Not a bad deal at all…
The memory we are testing today are TWINX matched memory pairs that have been specifically designed for motherboards using chipsets with dual memory channels. Current two-channel chipsets include the 875P (“Canterwood”) and 865PE/G (“Springdale”) from Intel, and the nForce2 Ultra 400 from Nvidia. This memory kit consists of two ultrahigh-speed memory modules that have been tested together at DDR500 (250 MHz) on a Canterwood based dual channel motherboard. Relaxed latency settings allow this module to achieve extraordinarily high clock speeds for optimum performance in many system configurations. TwinX memory kits are designed to provide the ultimate in performance and stability in dual channel boards.
