High quality DDR2 performance RAM with heatsinks ideal for overclocking- with life time warrenty

The Dominator Series Twin2X2048-8500C5D is a 2048 MByte matched pair of DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs built using Corsairs latest high performance heat sink with Dual-Path Heat Xchange (DHX) technology. This part delivers outstanding performance in the latest generation of dual-channel DDR2-based motherboards. It has been tested extensively in multiple DDR2 motherboards to ensure compatibility and performance at its rated speed. This memory has been verified to operate at 1066MHz at latencies of 5-5-5-15. Performance of these modules incorporating DHX can be further enhanced by using the optional Dominator Airflow Fan, for even more cooling and protection.

So amazing how tech prices drop so quickly, this was well over £150 when it first came out.
I already have 4GB Corsair TwinX XMS2 Pro PC6400 in my machine, although this would work fine in my system I can't justify the upgrade.

Voted HOT.

You can also get FREE delivery if you are a member of AVForums, it's a lot easier than Hexus as you don't have to constantly post threads and replies to qualify for Free Delivery.

Can i put this in my PC i did a scan and it says : DDRII memory with support for DDR2 PC2-6400,DDR2 PC2-5300 speeds.
Because DDR2 memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR2 speeds listed below.

A: No.
#12
Yes, but it wont use it to its full speed.

Virtually no desktop pc supports ECC memory, usually only used in servers. If you want to check, go to the crucial website and see if your system supports pc2-8500
http://www.crucial.com/uk/ (use the memory advisor tool)
My motherbord only listed up to pc2-6400 on the box, but thanks to a bios update it supports pc2-8500
#14
DJFluff, it tells you above that it supports up to DDR2 6400...

Thanks i did the scan on cruial memory site.
So would this not be anygood then for me if it want use full speed?
Thanks:thumbsup:

Crucials scans are not always right my board supports 8gb max memory crucial tells me it supports 4gb max.

If your board cannot support this mem then get 6400 800mhz stuff it cheaper and will run with better timings if this is run at 6400 the timings are slightly worse 5,5,5,18 :thumbsup:

IT also says on the site :
  • Maximum Memory Capacity: 4096MB
  • Currently Installed Memory: 3GB

    Want to change memeory as i keep getting blue screen and it keeps saying something wrong with memory is driving me mad
  • #18
    Hmmm... A Blue Screen allways has a 'memory dump' but does allways mean a problem with your memory... Have you tried running a memory testing program?
    If you need new 6400 memory, I can reccomend These : http://www.aria.co.uk/SuperSpecials/Other+products/Patriot+2GB+PC2-6400+C4+Extreme+Performance+%282x1GB%29+?productId=26802

    pc8500 is not an official speed and so even if it doesnt say it supports it, probably will. What motherboard do you have?

    Decent price wish i could justify buying another 2gb but cant so voted hot but wont be buying lol.

    Yeah officially 8500 ddr2 speed ram is not supported by most motherboards (JEDEC standard state DDR2 tops out at 6400 800mhz) which is what most mobo manufactures states for specs of mobo but boards may support this ram with bios updates or even if a good overclocking board :)

    Thanks ill try that test , aint got a clue what motherboard it is , the computer was brought in feb-March 08 i believe its an dell xps 420 so its not an old pc

    Should send it back Dell i guess , but dont want to go through hassle of sending it back then waiting for a new one then updating everything again and losing emails i need to keep etc if its easy to fix i would sooner do it myself , it happens once in a while ..... not all the time so i just presumed it was memory as it mentioned it.....mostly happens on start up off the PC when it decides to happen or sometimes if i plug a new item like printer into the usb port

    I did ring Dell first but it was hard to understand the woman so i had to put the phone down on her , everytime i ring i seem to get through to Indian call centres which i hate......i think ill try again and ask them to send someone out rather them me sending the PC back for them to replace , hopefully they can

    If that memory above for only £37 could of fixed it then i would of got it as £37 is nothing really and would save me the hassle lol

    If you have an XPS it has an onsite next day warranty and 24/7 phone support. I had a problem with an XPS laptop and the tech support was good and the engineer came the next business day to swap out the faulty RAM.
    Phone them directly on the XPS support line if you haven’t already: 0844 338 1888
    I don’t think the XPS 420 supports over-clocking at all so it will be restricted to running memory at 800MHz and probably fixed at CL5.

    For anyone that's bought a pre-built system especially from a large supplier such as Dell, HP etc the chances are very high that it would run this RAM at 800MHz CL5 which is what the SPD settings probably are.

    More spec updates

    Dual-path Heat Xchange Diagram
    • Optimized fins to maximize ambient airflow through the module array
    • Extruded aluminum heat sinks to maximize convective heat dissipation
    • Dedicated PCB heat sink

    Test Specs
    • Each module pair is tested together at 1066MHz
    • Tested and packaged in pairs
    • Packaged together immediately following system test
    • Tested at latency settings (5-5-5-15-2T) at 2.1V at 1066MHz
    SPD programmed at: JEDEC standard 5-5-5-18 values at 800MHz

    Features
    • 2048 Megabytes of DDR2 memory
    • Two matched CM2X1024-8500C5D modules
    • Using DHX technology providing maximum cooling
    • Performance can be enhanced if optional Dominator Airflow Fan is used
    • Enhanced Performance Profiles allow automatic overclocking to aggressive performance settings
    • 100% tested at 1066MHz in high performance DDR2 motherboards
    Lifetime warranty

    those thinking of running at 6400 get proper 6400 with better latency timings

    Most systems will run this RAM using the SPD settings which will give you 800MHz 5-5-5-18 which is what you’ll get from almost any DDR2-800 RAM costing £30 or even less i.e. cheaper than this deal. Unless you can manually set the RAM speed and/or latency in the BIOS in your system this will be wasted.

    Ah right thanks for that , never knew it came with that as it was a gift from family member so was unaware of what the warranty was , didnt even need a new pc really , funny thing is old one worked better then the XPS one.

    Ill ring them on that number now i think i was using an 0870 number found on there website lol

    Hopefully they can fix it in my home now :)

    Thanks :thumbsup:
