Overclockers UK Add Corsair DDR4 RAM to Their Portfolio
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
Overclockers UK wants to be the first to offer their customers the big things in new technology and they were the first e-tailer to list the brand new DDR4 memory from the Crucial Ballistix range. Now they have expanded their portfolio to include the brand new Corsair’s high performance memory, bringing the largest range of DDR4 to the UK. The memory is ready to order with a few modules in stock and the rest available for pre-orders.
The X99 chipsets are just around the corner and Overclockers UK wants to be ready with the advancement in memory technology to DDR4. The new expansion will also include the well established Corsair Platinum range. Prepared like a coiled spring ready for X99, Overclockers UK will be ready with all the components customers need to upgrade to the latest technology. Hosting a full range of motherboards, memory and even fully built X99 systems with the addition of Corsairs DDR4 range. Overclockers UK now boasts the largest range of DDR4 to offer.
Expert in memory and purchasing manager at Overclockers UK, Andrew Gibson, also known by the alias “Gibbo”, explains DDR4 memory technology on the forums for customers to understand, these are a few highlights :
Voltage will start at 1.20v, I suspect we might see overclocked modules available which need 1.25-1.30v but time will tell. But as the technology matures we shall see 1.10v low voltage parts and even 1.05v ultra low voltage parts. So the power savings are considerable over DDR3, longer lifespan and less heat output.
As with DDR3 there shall be 4GB and 8GB modules. But the desktop consumer shall also see 16GB modules as well soon, something DDR3 only have available for server market. So on an X99 motherboard with 8 slots that means 128GB of memory if the motherboards BIOS can support that.
This is the interesting one and potentially the most interesting for us keen overclockers, the speeds will come officially in 1600MHz, 1866MHz, 2133MHz, 2400MHz, 2666MHz, 3200MHz, 4000MHz and even maybe 4266MHz. These are official JEDEC speeds. Of course memory partners can release other speeds such as Corsair who are overclocking their parts up to 2800MHz, these are no doubt 2666MHz simply overclocked to this higher speed by Corsair themselves.
288-pin DIMM for desktop and 256-pin SODIMM for notebook.
Unbuffered ECC or none ECC, registered and load reduced, so DDR4 shall be available for all desktop, server and mobile type applications.
As for specifications, the Dominator Platinum modules run at 2800MHz (PC4-23000) with CAS Timings of 16-18-18-36 and the Vengeance modules run at 2666MHz (PC4-21300) with a CAS Timings of 15-17-17-35 or 2800MHz (PC4-23000) at 16-18-18-36 depending on model. Both types run at the default 1.2 Volt. As for pricing, it all starts at £239.99 at ends at £399.99 incl. Vat. You can head over to Overclockers UK and take a peek at their offerings and see if there should be something for you among it.
