Hitting the delete key to get into your BIOS setup screen could have
such great implications...... After all, most of us aren't going there because we
like how that particular set of menus look. No, we're jumping to the pages that
are home to things
like; vCorce, vDIMM, Front Side Bus speeds, memory dividers, and memory timings.
By simply switching around some numbers we ask our processors to do things that go
beyond written specification and even void the manufacturers warranty.
The latest processor cores from AMD have garnered a fair amount of attention
with their high overclocking potential. To utilize this potential, Overclockers
need the best memory that manufacturers are able to produce in an effort to
maximize bus speeds and ultimately achieve a high and stable overclock. The RAM
not only needs to have the ability to run at a high clock speed, but it should
also have latency timings low enough so we can actually benefit from running at
a high clock speed.
TwinX2048-4400PRo. A dual channel kit of some of the meanest memory that Corsair
has yet to produce. While Corsair is not a new name to the PC4400 arena, this
does mark the first time that Corsair has manufactured PC4400 in their coveted
PRO series of RAM. In addition to the signature black heat spreader plates,
Corsair tops the PRO series modules with Activity LEDs that flicker and flash as
the memory is accessed, showing a sort of digital version of a utilization bar.
As more memory is being utilized, more LEDs will illuminate.
