Corsair was one of the two memory manufacturers with DDR-2 memory faster than 1000 MHz available. The Corsair TWIN2X1024-8500 run at impressive 1066 MHz with 5-5-5-15 timings. Also on display was a yet unreleased 2GB kit version called TWIN2X2048-8500 Pro.

In the DDR1 area Corsair can also excel. The new 2 GB TWINX2048-4400 Pro kit runs at 275 MHz with 3-4-4-8 timings and includes 18 activity LEDs that show the level of memory activity while your system is running.

The Corsair Nautilus500 is Corsair's third evolution of a watercooling kit. It is designed for easy installation that can be performed very quickly even by novices. The CPU mounting is universal for LGA775, Socket 478, Socket 754, Socket 939 and Socket 940.

These barbs are quick connects. When you are disconnected only a very tiny bit of water comes out and the connector is automatically sealed. The tubing is making a very strong connection and is almost impossible to pull out by accident.

This is an SLI waterblock for the Corsair Nautilus500. It is made from one part for both video cards. This means it only works on motherboards where the spacing follows the standard size. The big advantage is that you do not have very small bends in the tubing from one video card to the other. Of course the block is available as single card solution as well.
