DDR2 : Corsair Dominator CM2X1024-8888C4D
The Dominator by Corsair is considered the most sophisticated memory on the market. Not only is it offered in multiple high-end speed grades, but the cooling concept is attractive : heat created by the memory chips is dissipated through a PCB cooler, as well as from the outside of the memory chips. The Dominator DIMMs typically are low-latency modules ; in this case, they can run CL4 timings at up to DDR2-1111 speeds.
Speeds : DDR2-667/800/1066
The following screenshots list the DDR2 memory speeds and timings, which we used for this article. We start with DDR2-667 and go all the way up to DDR2-1066.
