A Micron Semiconductor study shows that in a BGA memory device as much as 50% of the heat generated by the chip is actually conducted into the circuit board. Since traditional heat sinks are only attached to the front surface of memory chips, there’s no easy thermal path for the heat coming from the back of the chips. Corsair’s engineers have developed a unique technology that maximizes heat dissipation while improving reliability, even in the most extremely overclocked memory module. Dual-Path Heat Exchange (DHX) technology utilizes two methods to effectively remove heat from the memory circuit board - Convection and Conduction. Corsair and NVIDIA have jointly developed a new open standard that enhances the Serial Presence Detect (SPD). This exciting new development simplifies the overclocking process while ensuring platform and component compatibility. EPP compatible motherboards can access and take advantage of added performance capabilities and information. The result: simplified overclocking and unparalleled control for experts. DOMINATOR is the industry’s performance and award leader. It has won numerous honors to date including various Editor’s Choice awards and several “Memory of the Year” honors.
