Unless you are located in Germany or some other parts of Europe, chances are you have never heard of Compustocx. Compustocx, or CSX for short, is a German manufacturer of system memory modules for computers and is one of the largest memory upgrade providers for Apple computers. CSX has also ventured into producing solid-state drives, audio products, and FB-DIMM memory. Recently though we were asked by a US representative for Compustocx to look at one of their newest DDR3 memory kits, which we gladly accepted. The RAM we are testing out today is the CSX 3GB DDR3-1660MHz (CSXO-CEC3-1600-3GB-3KIT) memory kit.
- 3 x 1GB 240-pin DDR3 Kit
- 1333MHz JEDEC Setting
- 1600MHz Maximum Frequency
- Metal Heatsink Cooler
- 8-Layer PCB
- Part Number: CEC3-1600-3GB-3KIT
The CSX DDR3 triple-memory kit arrived in a package that was actually two cutout plastic containers taped together. Each container can accommodate two DDR3 DIMMs, but in the second container was just the third module. On the back of the paper insert are generic instructions for installing CSX-CEC system memory in both English and German.
