HotHardware has posted a review of Corsair's newest Dominator, the TWIN2X2048-10000C5DF.  It is a pair of 1GB DIMMs running at PC2-10000 DIMMs with timings of 5-5-5-18-2T at 1250MHz, and sports the Dominator cooling fans and shroud.   Because this is pretty much the fastest RAM going, there isn't much room for OCing, but it does come out king in

CellShock and MSC GmbH are probably not names that spring to mind when someone is talking about RAM.  However, they have been active in Europe for over 20 years.  Legit Reviews takes a look at their DDR2 1000 2GB kit.  The DIMMS have a good heatsink, use Micron D9GKX IC's, live on an 8 layer PCB and can hold their own against Corsair.

 Legion Hardware sets out to solve a mystery in this article about low latency RAM.  The cost difference between a lower latency DIMM and a higher can be enormous, so they test RAM at 5 different speeds and 4 different timings.  Can a high frequency overcome a low latency?

Corsair's DOMINATOR Twin2X2048-8888C4DF runs at 1111 MHz with timings of 4-4-4-12.  They have Corsair's newly designed heatspreaders, and the DOMINATOR Airflow fan bracket is optional.  Thanks to this efficient cooling scheme, 1244 MHz at 4-4-4-12 is reachable, if the voltage is bumped to 2.5V.  Be prepared to pay for this performance though, these modules will set you back more than $700.  Re

TechSpot is trying to figure out what makes this particular OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 kit "Crossfire Certified".  They are bright red and have an ATI logo on them, but seem no better than the Crucial or Corsair modules they tested it against.  They run at 4-4-4-12, needing 2.1V to get up and running and can be pushed to 975MHz @ 5-5-5-12 and 2.2V, so whether Crossfire ready or not, they are not slowpokes.
