Features and specs
Today we are taking a look at the our first tri channel ddr 3 kit. Corsair was kind enough to send us a 6Gb kit of their 1600MHz memory. With timings/latency at 7-7-7-20 we are looking at quite decent timings so it is going to be interesting to see what we can do with it when it comes to the overclocking part of this review.

Three sticks of memory means that you need a bigger box, this box holds all three memory sticks where they are stored in the own little plastic holders. On the back of the box you can read about the main features and on the front you can also look at the picture of the ram sticks. What I noticed was that Corsair seems to have changed the heatsink design since the last memory kit I looked at.
Each memory stick has their own little plastic holder and on each stick is also a sticker that has information about the model number and some specifications.
The memory kit is a member of the XMS family which has proven to be a solid and stable overclocker in the past so lets have a look at some test results.
