TR3X6G1600C8D: First Corsair Triple Channel memory kit arrived at the PCGH Test Lab

Author: Daniel Möllendorf (Oct 21, 2008) - After the Nehalem review kit we now received the first triple Channel memory kit from Corsair. It comes with three 2,048 MiByte modules that are said to run with latencies of 8-8-8-24 in DDR3-1600 mode. So they exceed the Intel specifications that only guarantee stable DDR3-1066 settings. The voltage of the TR3X6G1600C8D modules on the other hand matches the 1.65 volt recommended by Intel. The cooling solution looks similar to the known DHX cooling used for example on Corsair’s Dominator modules. But actually it is a new system – additional info is delivered in the subtitles of the following pictures.

Most X58 board offer. Like the pictured MSI Eclipse, six RAM slots for the Triple Channel mode. (picture: PCGH)
The sticker reveals: The modules are supposed to run in DDR3-1600 mode with the timings 8-8-8-24 at 1.65 volt and have a capacity of 2,048 MiByte. (picture: PCGH)
Due to the cooling solution, the Corsair modules are higher than those with the default heatspreader. (picture: PCGH)
Direct comparison: The old DHX cooling solution (above) and the new solution of the Triple Channel kit (below). (picture: PCGH)
Instead fins orientated in four parallel lines, now a single block is screwed on the modules. (picture: PCGH)
The new cooler isn’t as high as its predecessor. (picture: PCGH)
