Corsair Releases a Memory Light Show

Corsair has been moving toward providing instantaneous information about the performance of their memory. We saw the first efforts in this direction in the release of their PRO series with top-mounted LEDs in Corsair TwinX1024-4000 PRO: Improving DDR500 Performance. The latest from Corsair makes those initial efforts seem pale by comparison.

The latest Corsair memory features an LED bar on top that not only looks great in a side-window case, but also provides useful information on the actual performance of the memory.

Showing things like the operating voltage of the memory...

...the frequency...

...and the operating temperature.

The messages scroll across the top of the Corsair DIMMs. While they do not actually improve performance, the color LED messages do look absolutely incredible in a side window case. The info that they provide could also save you some grief from overheated memory or rampant voltages, for example.

    "The single-chip nF4 is cooled by a new super low noise, long-life magnetic induction fan."

    Is "magnetic induction" just a fancy way to say typical? Isnt all ordinary fans powered by magnetic motors?

    "More please," about the new MicroATX IGP releases using ATI chipsets. We have a number of desktops using the ASUS A7N266-VM/AA that we may want to upgrade. Reply

    Holy voltages batman! DFI for the win. I can't believe their nf3 board still isn't in final production yet, but their nf4 board is. I don't need PCI express. I've already got a softmodded and highly overclockable 6800NU. I can't get a $200 PCI-e card that will be anywhere near as good.

    :(

    #3 - We have a DFI SLI on the way and we will post a First Look as soon as we get our hands on the board. DFI assures us you will be able to buy the board by the end of January.

    #4 and #5 - Maybe the best indication that the nForce4 are starting to hit the market in volume is that we just received nForce4 boards for review from both Foxconn and ECS.

    $6 - The taxi drivers seem to get ruder each year, and I'm a decent tipper. Anand had the same experience. I have to confess that I did have one taxi driver who was terrific. He must have been left over from '99.

    >DFI will own the enthusiast market in very near future.

    I knew DFI has been coming along well lately but when I read your comment I sort of laughed until I read the article.

    Hot damn DFI! That SLI board looks great.

    >Damn this was lame. Am I the only one waiting for an Nforce4 939 board without the SLI from Asus?

    I found it interesting that the Vegas taxi drivers are rude now. In 99 for Comdex they were all really great to me.
    Oh... Asus?
