Corsair is a top dog in the memory market. They’re the #1 most awarded manufacturer of high performance memory and have been making enthusiast-grade memory longer than anyone else.
Today we’ll be looking at the 1866MHz 16GB (CMY16GX3M2A1866C9) DDR3 memory kit that was released by Corsair in the recent months. These DRAM kits are designed specifically with Intel sockets LGA1150 and 1155 in mind, and also designed around overclocking. The memory ICs are specially selected for performance and overclocking potential. To unleash the 1866MHz speed with 9-10-9-27 timings, or whatever speed you decide to purchase, you will have to utilize the Intel Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) Profile 1. Should you not enable this profile, these modules are JEDEC compliant and will run at 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings.
