Introduction
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Corsair TWINX2048-3500LLPRO memory kit uses two 1 GB CMX1024-3500LLPRO memory modules (219 MHz/DDR438, 2-3-2-6 timings) and is optimized to be used on ASUS A8N32-SLI motherboards series. CMX1024-3500LLPRO modules were the first to use CAS 2 latency, which is considered very aggressive in high-capacity modules (1 GB) with a 219 MHz clock. Let’s see how this kit goes on our review.

The module has the same look as the other XMS Pro series modules from Corsair. The modules have a big black aluminum heatspreader and on their top they have a series of 18 LEDs that shows the memory activity. For those that have a case with a transparent side window the effect is very interesting. On the other hand these modules are too high, what makes it difficult to use them with certain motherboards when bigger CPU coolers are used.

The reviewed modules use Infineon BE-5 chips and printed circuit board (PCB) designed by BrainPower.

Infineon BE-5 chips can run up to 260 MHz using a low operating voltage.

Before going to our benchmarks, let’s take a look at the main technical features of the reviewed modules.
