Our Summary and Conclusion
Much of what we said about the TWIN3X2048-1800C7D kit a few months ago still rings true for the XMP enabled version of the kit we looked at here. With a rated speed of 1800MHz, the Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G is one of the highest clocked DDR3 memory kits currently on the market. And despite supporting an already high default clock speed, it also proved to have plenty of overclocking headroom left, and ultimately put up the best performance overall. All that performance comes at a price, however. At about $459 (after rebates), the Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G kit is relatively expensive, especially for a 2GB memory kit. But in the current DDR3 landscape you do get what you pay for – most cheaper kits can’t come close to hitting the kind of frequencies this one can.
If money is no object this is arguably the best DDR3 memory kit for enthusiasts in our opinion, and it also happens to be backed by one of the most respected companies in the business. Due to its excellent performance, overclockability, and features, we’re giving the Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G kit an Editor’s Choice award.
