The data displayed by the Corsair XPERT series RAM is very useful in the process of diagnosing a faulty memory controller, memory voltage regulator, and even in some cases the modules themselves. Diehard overclockers will want to go for something that will overclock more and cost less. Unfortunately, the Corsair memory sample we had here today, didn't overclock as far as we had desired. As for the price, in comparison against other XMS memory, the TWINXP1024-3200XL sells anywhere from $300-400 while the TWINX1024-3200XLPRO sells for about $275 and the TWINX1024-3200XL going for about $240. The TWINXP1024-3200XL doesn't come cheap, but with its Dashboard utility and programmable LED display module, the price is reasonable for most computer enthusiasts. Hopefully in the coming months, we'll be able to see the XPERT series make its way into DDR2 modules.
