Introduction

Didn't Corsair just recently release a PC4400PRO 2GB part?  The folks at Corsair sure work fast to provide us with goodies.  This time around, they introduce a low latency 2GB kit that runs faster than other low latency 2GB kits.  Unlike the competing PC3200 2GB parts, Corsair's new 2GB memory comes at a slightly faster speed of PC3500. 

Corsair's high speed PC4400PRO 2GB is capable of reaching some good overclocks, but it did come with loose timings of 3-4-4-8 2T.  The 2T part just kills me.  I never bother to run ANY memory at 2T.  The loose command rate just loses too much system performance to be really beneficial.  The PC3500LLPRO we have today is rated with much better timings.  Their recent press release announces the memory as the "Fastest Asus-Ready 1GB DDR1 Module".  For more information on their press release, visit HERE.  Corsair and Asus are known to have some great partnerships so it is not surprising that Corsair used Asus A8N32-SLI motherboards for their testing platforms.  While we were not fortunate enough to receive the A8N32-SLI motherboard, we do have the DFI LANParty UT nF4 Ultra-D in house.  Although it is not Corsair's "recommended" motherboard to pair with the memory, we all know that DFI's nF4 boards are able to reach some outrageous bus speeds.  The board certainly won't be the bottleneck.  Just how fast is the fastest DDR1 module?
