Our Review
XMS3 memory is a step above the Value Select Range but not quite Dominator. This Kit is fitted with the much larger DHX Heatsinks and do run cooler than the standard XMS3 although through our tests it seemed that this was the only difference between the two kits. The TWIN3X2048-1333C9DHX sets are designed to work in all motherboards, AMD or Intel that have 2 memory channels, but although this memory is aimed high enough to interest Gamers, the size of the kit is far too small. It does however look more the part for a Gaming system than the standard XMS3 and it still has the same reliability as the rest of the range and is highly compatible with most systems.

Other Reviews
Michael DumasI needed a 2GB Kit and preferred these, they just look better than the other Corsair and far better than the other makes I looked at.
Gerald McDonaldI fitted this kit in my self built midi tower, they run just fine but the heatsinks get in the way of the IDE Cable from my DVD drive.
