I assume the heatsink design is patented? Otherwise it would be nice to see this filter down to other brands. Yes it's fast, but £400+ for memory is silly money...
Corsair has filed patents 'on multiple aspects of this technology', so I would assume so.
Mommy, I'm scared.
But they could be used as a hair comb.
On a more serious note, shame about the H__U_G_E price tag (compo prize) and I wouldn't mind that fan cap personally.
Wow, that price is ridiculous.
As far as I can see, the price premium over say a £150 set just isn't worth it for most people, as there is hardly any performance difference.
Anymore details/thoughts on the fans would be nice, possibly using magnets to keep it so quiet?
It seems the real world performance to price ratio makes this an enthusiasts purchase, unless I win the lottery I don't think I will be getting some for my next rig!
Amazing timings none the less.
Great idea, it would prop. do the job well as an ueber geek comb.
I can hear Highlander reaching for his wallet as we speak........
I dont know why they didnt use an axial fan to remove dead spots from having three 40mms in a row.
Never seen one, link?
Is it just me or should the game tests graphs say "fps (higher is better)" rather than "second (lower is better)"?
Those fans are Axial, Axial fans blow air across their axis, which is what these fans do...
I think you mean crossflow fans?
Yeah that's what confused me.
whoops, yes... my bad.
the bottom one i think would be better for this aplication, but it makes more noise.
Surely the top is a radial fan and the bottom is an axial fan?
Airflow moves along the rotating shaft.
Why..? Have a kit here that cost 1/2 the amount and can get damn close to those timings with the same voltage...
Look like decent modules, think the speader is overkill... DIMM's here don't get hugely hot with 2.45v running through them thats with a normal spreader and only a slight breeze from a fan over the graphics card.
<edit> although the lack of case might contribute somewhat, a little airflow from the heatsink should make the extra fannage un-necessary though) </edit>
BTW guys, you have a set of 6400 C3 right? Bung 2.4 (or more) volts through that and you should be able to run 3,3,3,x timings way into the 400's quite happily. Might even get to x,2,2,x at 400mhz
I don't know what memory you are using, but most enthusiast ram even slightly overclocked feels very hot to the touch...
