    GeIL (Golden Emperor Industries Ltd.) rolled out two new lines of DDR3 desktop memory targering the gamer-enthusiast segment, the Enhance Corsa and Evo Corsa. Interestingly, these lines don't include triple-channel kits, but quad-channel ones consisting of four modules, aside from the usual dual-channel kits. Gearing up for the Sandy Bridge-E market early, I see. Among the two lines, the Enhance Corsa consists of bang-for-buck kits with DDR3-1333 MHz and DDR3-1600 MHz.

    The USP here is that the 1333 MHz kits will pack an Intel XMP profile that runs the modules at 1500 MHz with CL9 timings, and DRAM voltage of 1.5V; while the DDR3-1600 MHz ones will pack a XMP profile that runs them at 1700 MHz with CL9 timings and 1.5V. Evo Corsa comes in dual and quad-channel kits, consisting of 2 GB or 4 GB modules, making up 4 GB or 8 GB dual-channel; and 8 GB or 16 GB quad-channel kits on offer.

    The Evo Corsa is geard for overclockers, consisting of DDR3-1866 MHz and DDR3-2133 MHz kits. The modules are put through rigorous testing to make them tolerant to high DRAM voltages and extended operation under high voltages, making them perfect for high 24x7 overclock scenarios. All kits in this series are packed with memory timings of 9-10-9-28, and DRAM voltage of 1.5V. Like with Enhance Corsa, this series consists of 2x 2GB, 2x 4GB, 4x 2GB, and 4x 4GB kits. GeIL did not give out pricing and availability information.

    The heatspreader certainly looks cool, but form follows function, so its heat dissipating capabilities are yet to be determined I think.

    Oh and I always chuckle about the name GeIL, as "geil" is an adjective in German meaning either "very cool", or, more commonly, "aroused".
    Chevalr1c says thanks.

    yeah, but nowadays geil is universaly used by the younger kids. like awesome by mailmen across the pond etc. : )

    On a sidenot, Geil were my first massive headsink memory sticks and they really rocked at whatever settings... and beautiful too... touching and looking at certain hardware indeed makes me geil lol

    I really like the look of these, but don't see anything special about them, over the rest of their ram offerings.

    Heatspreaders don't really need to work for DDR3. It only gets warm under extreme clocking/overvolting, so 95% of their function is form.

    I call it honda syndrome, it's not the 92 bhp that make it go it's the stickers advertising the brand of the 20 addons that add 15 bhp that make it go fast. I still think they look good though.
