Our Summary and Conclusion


Performance Summary: Throughout all of our testing, the Corsair TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G memory kit performance at or near the very top of the charts.  At its stock settings, the TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G kit performed exactly like its non-XMP enabled counterpart, which is to say it performed quite well.  While overclocked though, the TWIN3X2048-1800C7DFIN G kit was clearly the fastest, due to its relatively high maximum stable clock speed of just over 2GHz, which also happens to be the highest speed we’ve even been able to take a DDR3 memory kit to date.

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.
