Ever wondered why, although you have tons of memory at your disposal, your desktop computer system still acts like one that has less memory? Well, the answer lays somewhere in your memory module's specification data sheet in a field dubbed Latency. The latency level of each memory module will you how fast will your memory work with the CPU.
Although DDR2 memory standard is now widely spread among users, its latency levels make it inferior to other memory versions. Take one DDR module and one DDR2 that are clocked at the same frequency and you will realize that the DDR module has lower latency rates. Still, the DDR2 standard is highly recommended when dealing with extreme rigs with overclocking capabilities.
Corsair is one of the best memory manufacturers out there with an experience (in manufacturing memories) that dates back to 1994. The Corsair brand is well known among the gamers who are always on the look-out for any high-performance hardware component. Their Dominator line sports models for both DDR2 and DRR3 standards and are sold after some rigorous testing in Corsair's own laboratories.
One of their DDR2 modules has been manufactured to offer a total of 2 GB of system memory per single kit while running at 800MHz. The unique feature of this kit, that makes it distinguishable among the other Dominator products, is the fact that it can run at latencies of 3-4-3-9, which is considerably lower than 5-5-5-15, which can be found on the other Dominators.
The PC2-6400 memory kit also features some of Corsair's famous proprietary technologies, like the DHX cooling solution. The cooling for each individual module of the TWIN2X2048-6300C3DF kit is carried out through a double sided heatsink placed on the memory's PCB. The aluminum heatsink will improve the airflow around the memory module, thus making it more reliable in overclocking.
The Dominator TWIN2X2048-6300C3DF DDR2 memory can be acquired online for an approximate price tag that is somewhere around $300.
