Corsair has introduced a new high-end DDR3 RAM kit “designed specifically” for socket AM3 Phenom II CPUs. At launch, the kit will be comprised of two 2GB modules, to make 4GB in total. Each is tested to run at a frequency of 1,600MHz with 6-6-6-18 1T timings at 1.65V.

Corsair has added support for AMD’s Black Edition Memory Profiles, so changing that configuration should be a breeze with AMD’s OverDrive Windows utility. Keeping the module’s memory chips and PCB cool are Corsair’s DHX+ heatsinks, which have removable fins to support Corsair’s liquid cooling products, and the kit itself ships with a clip-on air cooler with dual 60mm fans.


Granted, most people building an AMD-based rig these days are probably working with a tight budget. Nevertheless, Corsair's premium DDR3 kit can be yours for $350 by heading over to their online store (and only their store).
