Quoted from Corsair TWIN2X1024-8500 Reviews:Check out these quotes from Corsair TWIN2X1024-8500 reviews & previews
"Corsair being renowned as producers of the World's fastest ram, have done it again. The XMS2 PC2-8500 TwinX 1Gb kit is a must have for any enthusiast or gamer who wants the best for their system. With great performance, excellent overclockability and rock-solid stability, these modules are without doubt one of the best products of the year. Make sure you put these modules at the very top of your shopping list."
"In summary, Corsair's TWIN2X1024-8500 memory is overkill for the majority of users unless absolute performance is vital. Want the fastest memory around? Look no further than this pack. Priced at around £175 for a 1GByte set it's not cheap, but if you can afford an Extreme Edition CPU, do yourself a favour and pair it up with some ultra-high bandwidth memory."
"In modern Intel systems, the FSB presents a significant bottleneck to using the full memory bandwidth made available by high performance DDR2 modules. We are not going to see the full potential of even PC6400 memory until the FSB hits 1333MHz, and we'd need to hit 1600MHz FSB to fully be able to utilize PC8000 memory. Nevertheless, the performance of the XMS2-8500 modules was excellent, it overclocks superbly, and I can't wait to try them on AMD's upcoming AM2 processors with integrated DDR2 controller."
"Overall, the modules shows great flexibility in settings and I would highly recommend to high end users who wish to tap the memory at its full speed."
"This 1GB XMS2-8500 TwinX memory kit is Corsair's fastest dual-channel DDR2 memory kit. In fact, it's the first DDR2 memory kit to ship with an effective clock speed of 1066MHz for Intel platforms that support a 1066MHz FSB. However, to achieve such a high clock rate, a few compromises had to be made. For starters, Corsair had to use a high latency of 5-5-5-15. This is certainly no low-latency module. If you are looking for low-latency, then you are out of luck."
