Just Delivered: 24GB (6 x 4GB) of Corsair DDR-1333 Memory

Just Delivered is a new section of PC Perspective where we share some of the goodies that pass through our labs that may or may not see a review, but are pretty cool none the less.  

When building a video editing rig, it is important to have some incredibly powerful specifications like faster processors, lots of cores, speedy storage and of course, lots and lots of memory.

To address this issue and to help us bring more high quality video content readers faster, we just received a set of six 4GB DDR3-1333 modules for a total of 24GB of memory.  Our processor layout includes a pair of quad-core Xeon processors with HyperThreading (thus, 16 threads) with each CPU getting 12GB all their own.

Can't wait to see the finished product!

Going by the speed of the RAM and the fact you're using them with Xeons, are these ECC DIMMs?

Also, I've noticed that Micron are sampling 1600 ones and was wondering if you could ask your Corsair reps when they'd be offering ECC DIMMs in the higher speed rating.

Thanks.

Actually, these are NOT ECC modules. The Xeon CPUs in this series don't require it.

Can't wait to see the video editing beast and to see how the one I build with the i7-2600k and 16GBs or RAM stacks up against it (once Z68 comes out so I can buy the mobo and the CPU - everything else is already purchased).

I am sure we will post something on it when its done!

I love the idea of Just Delivered. I have wondered what sort of hardware arrives at PC Perspective headquarters.

Do you like the name? We are still open to new ones! :)

But yes, expect more photos of cool stuff!!

The name reminds me of the excitement of opening a package without having to worry about the wife complaining. ;)

A video and photos of how you build it would be cool!

I don't even use 6gb of ram.

Insight into video editing systems is great news. With the increase avchd capture devices and importance of editing video for the web it always surprises me on the lack of editing system information. I will look forward to your system build information. Including a component list similar to your hardware leader board (dream, high end, budget)in the summation would be a great addition to your completed system summary .
