Default Corsair Launches Low Voltage 2133MHz DDR3 DIMMs

Corsair today announced the launch of a new, highly overclocked, low voltage memory kit. This 4GB Dominator GT memory kit, implemented using a matched pair of 2GB DIMMs, is guaranteed to operate at 2133MHz, with latency settings of 9-11-9-27, and at a memory voltage of only 1.5V. ?We have seen an increasing number of requests from overclockers for...

since when did "overclockers" starting asking for higher clock speeds at lower voltages on memory? must have been a epidemic i missed of 1.65v on memory being too much draw for power bills once the temperatures dropped.

sorry, but i am not buying what is being sold here. call it what it is. you found an IC that you could bin to run these clocks at 1.5v...don't try selling it as something "overclockers" asked for.

The prupose isn't really for "green" memory, since they only take a couple of watts, but it provides more room for overclocking (MOAR voltage). The article never said anything about saving power.

playing devils advocate, the article never said anything about providing better overclocking by increasing voltage either.

IF there was ever one person to trust on memory related things, its you 3oh6, and I have to agree with you.

All I'll say is that it's Corsair, when's the last time you saw a bad hardware launch that was from Corsair? I think that Corsair is simply implying that overclockers will appreciate the lower VDimm required to run this kit, because naturally Mr Average Joe wouldn't even look at the Dominator GT brand anyway.

Default Sweet tech, when for i7?

this is good news, I'm staying optimistic they'll release a kit like this for i7
I'll be building a new rig in January and I want dominator gt's, was planning to get two gt 2000 kits running at 1.65v...
