Corsair Attacks OCZ Claims

Fudo reports that Corsair is distributing a .PDF in which the company tackles some of the bold claims made by OCZ in regards to the success of their heatspreaders. In a rather bold move on their part, Corsair illustrates the fact that heatspreaders on memory modules are largely for aesthetic purposes only and offer less than 5MHz of overclocking headroom versus bare modules. This gets you thinking if heatspreaders don't serve much of a purpose, maybe Corsair is onto something afterall with their heatspreader-mounted diagnostic LEDs on their XMS Xpert modules.

The CEO of Asetek, the company that dedicated its life to cooling confirmed the same thing as he said that even if you use LN2 to cool your memory you won't get more than 10 per cent of overclockability.
