Corsair Launches Low Voltage 2133 MHz DDR3 DIMMs

Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the launch of a new, highly overclocked, low voltage memory kit. This 4GB Dominator GT memory kit, implemented using a matched pair of 2 GB DIMMs, is guaranteed to operate at 2133MHz, with latency settings of 9-11-9-27, and at a memory voltage of only 1.5V.

“We have seen an increasing number of requests from overclockers for memory that can achieve high clock speeds at lower voltages,” stated Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. “At 2133MHz, this 4GB memory is the world’s fastest commercially available memory at 1.5 volts.”

The new CMT4GX3M2B2133C9 Dominator GT memory kit, complete with signature racing-red livery, will be available within two weeks from selected Corsair distributors and resellers. This kit includes Corsair’s patented DHX+ heatsink, as well as the GT Airflow module, for exceptional thermal performance. MSRP for this memory kit is $169.99 USD.

The kits are supplied with a limited lifetime warranty and are backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.

2133mhz 9-11-9 @ 1.5v is actually impressive!

I'd like to see these kits in 2x4gb. I wonder how much improvement I would see over my DDR2-1066 CAS 5. I probably won't upgrade motherboard until AM3+ though...

Why do i have a feeling they are talking about a single 2GB stick? There is no way a 6GB 3x kit of such RAM would cost just 170 bucks. But if it does (very unlikely) it would be a killer :D

^It's 2× 2GB (CMT4GX3M2B2133C9).

Now I'm waiting for 2400MHz and 2500MHz modules, with higher voltages ;)

And I'm only interested in stuff that runs at ≤1.35V. Frequency is nigh irrelevant.

I would call this impressive because of the vdimm rating of 1.5v, BUT none of this stuff is impressive once you look at what Elpida did with hypers. Hyper IC's spoiled the fun of this high mhz, loose arse timings ram we got nowadays.

I'm thinking exactly the opposite way...
Or do you think you'll make huge economy if your RAM runs at 1.35V instead of 2.0V(1.65V) ??:D

it certainly runs cooler and will last longer.



if your ram needs 2.0v for stock and this needs 1.5v, that gives us an extra 0.5v we can push into it when OCing...

2.0v that's mean kill your cpu quick, decrease cpu live time

we are talking about RAM not CPU.
And like I said, with proper cooling it doesn't matter the voltage of RAMs. I have home 4 sticks of DDR2@1066 with DEFAULT 2.1V and they run as cold as my mobile. And I can push them to 1200 without a big increase in temps. But those DDR3 are made using smaller parts, so they might get hotter. The one I use at work DDR3 - 2400MHz, are also DEFAULT 1.65V.
I'm still waiting for future RAMs so I can upgrade my system home. But need some decent prices. :D
Still the performance gap between 2133 and 2400 is quite big so I prefer performance over power saving here. Not the same I would say about CPUs and GPUs ;) :D

When you get a chance to actually run DDR3 over 2000mhz, you will see how wrong that post is.

Voltage does matter, and I have both a 3 sets of ram over 2000mhz. All of em feel the same in windows, I need a synthetic bench to actually see the difference. Heat is also starting to play a much bigger factor with the high speeds of todays DDR3.

On a side note, I havent had the balls to push past 1.85V on any of my DDR3, even there the memory gets plenty warm;)

actually it will kill the CPU these days, with the IMC being integrated

for 24/7 use sure. Guys running the extreme cooling run 2V in DDR3 all the time;)

I have at work a CAD station that runs 16GB of DDR3 @ 2400 and 1.65V - everything at default so no o.c. And I actually made a test with mems at 2133 and I lost 30 sec to a 24MP render. So, yeah, it's a difference between 2133 and 2400. ;)

P.s. I have exaggerated a little 2.0v for mems. I was referring to DDR2 which on 2.0v consume the same amount of power like a DDR3 at 1.65v for example...

Add 0.2V to Vram and you could get pretty amazing speeds with those sticks without risking to fry your CPU if i7

0.2 to Vram?? why V-RAM?

Hmm, interesting. What (better) speeds do you have in mind? We bought those sticks just for this reason to have a stable system without o.c., but any suggestion is recommended :D ;)

that's correct crappy INTEL i7 technology.

you have knowledge about DDR2 , DDR3 is different and in fact we talked about i7 systems, intel set 1.65v for ram as max voltage, as Mussels explain the problem is the IMC being integrated, you can't go with 2.0v with mem and leave QPI at stock, or if u leave it on auto i think QPI will be rise up automatically over 1.45v, man i7 system is very complicated it's make sick sometimes.
