Corsair's DOMINATOR memory series features Dual-path Heat Xchange (DHX) technology and has the world’s first PC2-8888 C4 (1111MHz at CAS Latency 4) speed rating on a production pair of 1 GByte modules. Today we take the XMS2 PC2-8888C4 modules out for a spin and see if they make a difference when it comes to system performance. Hold on tight because these modules reached over 1220MHz at 4-4-4-12 timings!
We were able to overclock the processor to it's limits and reached 305MHz on the HTT before our system became unstable. We were able to get the system running at 307MHz putting the memory at 1227.6MHz (CPU-Z Validation Link), but it would fail Prime 95 testing when we tried running it for hours on end. At just 2.42 Volts on the memory we were able to overclock them from 1111MHz to 1219.4MHz with stability before we threw in the towel because our processors (we tried several AM2 processors) wouldn't keep going.
