Of all the memory manufacturers on this planet, Corsair is one of the most legendary manufacturers for computer hobbyists and enthusiasts in the industry. Although Corsair hasn't been in business for nearly as long as other desktop memory providers, such as PNY, every memory module shipped out of the doors is individually tested for superior stability and rock-solid performance. Time and time again, we're enlightened by testing Corsair's inquisitive memory products and up on our testing block this afternoon is their TWIN2X1024A-5400UL 2 x 512MB modules from their XMS2 series. With PC2-8000 and PC2-6400 available in masses, what is there to distinguish these PC2-5400 modules from the faster competition? Read the review to find out about this stunning performance.

Features:

· Two matched CM2X512A-5400UL modules
· Implemented using 64M x 8 DDR2 SDRAMs
· 100% tested at 675MHz at 3-3-2-8 in high performance DDR2 motherboards
· Legendary Corsair reliability and service
· Lifetime warranty
· Tested and packaged in pairs
· SPD programmed at 4-4-4-12 values

Like our previous XMS and XMS2 Corsair modules, the TWIN2X1024A-5400UL came packaged in its traditional slim plastic container. Each 512MB module was snuggly fitted into a fortified area while the only other noteworthy item consisted of Corsair's traditional paper insert, which states awards they have received for their honorary performance along with their memory installation guide. Overall, there isn't much to say about its packaging but that its proved to be a reliable method of protection and OCZ Technology among other manufacturers have adopted this style of casing. For those not interested in a 1GB capacity, Corsair does offer their XMS2-5400 modules also in a 2GB (2 x 1GB) and 512MB versions.
