    Compustocx (CSX), always made headlines with its Diablo series overclock-friendly memory modules. Some of its earlier DDR3-2000+ memory modules received raving reviews. Unfortunately, DRAM voltages on those modules were to high to let the modules count safe for the Core i7 platform.

    The company now released a new 3 GB and 6 GB, triple-channel memory kits that brandish Core i7 compatibility. The DIABLO3-2000-3GB-3KIT and DIABLO3-2000-6GB-3KIT come with the district Diablo-series heatspreaders over the modules. They use Samsung HCF0 DRAM chips which count as some of the best performing parts. Each module holds eight 1 Gb (for the 3 GB kit) or 2 Gb (for the 6 GB kit) chips. By default, the modules are programmed to run at JEDEC standard speeds: 1333 MHz, with CAS latency at 9T. The modules are guaranteed to run at a max speed of 2000 MHz, with DRAM timings of 9-9-9-24, at a voltage of 1.64 V. CSX has these kits out in limited quantities for now.

    Its good we are starting to see Core i7 friendly OCable RAM. Tho 1.64v is literally only just on the safe side of frying your £300+ CPU, lol.

    Getting the rest of your system to measure up to the ram could lead to a fire :laugh:

    Wasn't the overvolting issue kinda fixed?... If I remember right, Asus reported it would separate CPu and RAM voltage.

    I hope those "boutiqe memory assembler" will start selling good 2X2GB ddr3 for amd am3

    They will add sales with both I7 and AM3 crowds

    So far AM3 platform only rely on old D9 GTR chips to go >1800/1900 7-6-5-15
