As one would expect with such a frequency, in order to obtain an 800MHz rating we find a loss in timings. These timings are right in line with those of the OCZ Gold PC2-6400 modules we looked at recently, with 5-5-5-10 ratings. Even though lower timings would be nice, as frequency has risen there has been less correlation between timings and performance. Low timings were once all the rage, and still are amongst lower clocked modules, but to attain 800+MHz speeds, some timings must be sacrificed.

The most notable physical feature of these sticks is, of course, the platinum colored heatspreaders. The heatspreaders implemented here by Corsair offer a larger surface area that competing product, partially due to the 24 activity LED light panel on the dorsal portion of the modules. These activity LED’s are a nice addition to any windowed system, though they’re more for looks than any real use like the XPERT line does.

Of course, the most important factor with the PC2-6400 modules from Corsair is the Lifetime Warranty. This is certainly a nice feature that has been adopted by several leading manufacturers, and is a big win for the consumer.
