Corsair Launches High Density DDR3 Memory With New American Racing Blue DHX+ Fins

Corsair, a worldwide leader in high-performance computer memory, power supplies and flash memory products, including solid-state drives, today announced a new set of high density products for Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors. These DIMMs are available in dual and triple channel configurations and are specifically tuned for Intel CPUs.

The 8GB and 12GB module kits feature Corsair’s DHX+ cooling technology, and sport new American Racing Blue fins and highlights. The dual channel configuration, part number CMD8GX3M4A1600C8, consists of four matched 2GB modules, optimized for P55 motherboards. The triple channel configuration, part number CMD12GX3M6A1600C8, consists of six matched 2GB modules, and is optimized for X58 motherboards. Both sets of modules have XMP profiles set at 1600MHz, with CAS latency settings of 8-8-8-24. An Airflow fan with matching blue highlights is included with both the dual and triple channel configurations.

“Windows 7 early adopters and other power users have recently been demanding 8GB and 12GB performance memory solutions to optimize their computing experience,” stated John Beekley, Vice President of Technical Marketing at Corsair. “These 8GB and 12GB configurations will allow these advanced users to get the most out of their high performance rigs, particularly if they often switch between demanding tasks like gaming and video production.”

Corsair has recently produced a whitepaper detailing some of the performance gains that can be realized with memory configurations of 8GB and larger. You can find the results of this study here. The study demonstrated that the higher density memory took excellent advantage of the improved memory handling in Windows 7, and resulted in substantial performance gains in system startup, shutdown, context switching, and game loading.

The guys and gals at Corsair know full well, that colour is the main deciding factor in our DDR3 purchases... Under what name will those be sold outside of the "New World"?

America f*ck yeah!:laugh:

Also on topic. I'd take Antec or Enermax PSU's over Corsair any and every time. Corsair RAM memory is ok.
Love that song.:laugh:

But i guess a new color scheme is nice.

The color aside, since when is a stick of 2GB DDR3 considered "high density"? If it was a 4GB DIMM then yes, I would consider it "medium density"... 2GB is "low density" all day long...

Would have looked better with British racing green tbh ;)

What's next? Custom paint jobs on the ram? I want flames on mine! Or how about some racing stripes? It's all a bit silly IMO

I really like the Blue on this ram. I wish they did make an AM3 optimized set. Not everyone can go i7 and triple channel.

The next off topic post will result in discipline. Swift, precise and merciless, the iron hand will strike those who wish to post off topic garbage. This goes for everyone, and this is your only warning.

actually, the Dominator GT is a fine RAM. the red one that is. using an earlier version of Elpida Hyper chips

When Corsair launches Dominator GTs intended for AMD platform, I'm sure they will paint it Racing Green :roll:

Enermax I can agree with. Antec tho? You have to be out of your mind. :p Corsair psus are leagues better than Antec PSUs.

As far as these Corsair modules, I'm also curious why the name AMerican Racing Blue. Could it have any relation to the company American Racing? Perhaps some sort of marketing agreement?
