MODTHEBOX would like to thank Vivian from Corsair for providing the Corsair Xpert TWINXP1024-3200XL DDR Memory Kit for review.

Corsair Xpert TWINXP1024-3200XL DDR Memory Kit

Introduction:

The combination of high performance computing and the art of overclocking to push components far beyond the manufactures suggested specifications have provided great achievements for not only for hardware architecture over the last year but enthusiasts as well. In a competitive consumer market, more and more products are being revised to earn your potential dollar. Two years ago Corsair started to market its popular XMS3200LL Pro Series Twinx Kit which combined its low latency memory modules with 18 activity LEDs. The company has recently taken the next logical step in appealing to hardcore gaming enthusiasts with the release of the XMS Xpert product line. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating the new Corsair Xpert TWINXP1024-3200XL DDR Memory Kit designed for dual channel DDR supporting motherboards.

The Corsair Xpert TWINXP1024-3200XL DDR Memory Kit is one of several different memory modules packages available on the Corsair website. This kit is a matched pair of memory modules and has been designed to specifically work for motherboards using chipsets with dual memory channels. Here are some specifications taken directly from the Corsair website:
