Thanks to Corsair folks, I have the opportunity to take a pair of 2x2GB Corsair PC2-9136 Dominator (TWIN2X4096-9136C5DF) dual channel kit for a test drive


Rated Specifications:
  • 2x 2048MB matched CM2X2048-9136C5D modules
  • 571Mhz or DDR2-1142MHz 5-5-5-15 2T
  • 2.1v
  • SPD: JEDEC standard 5-5-5-18 values at 800MHz
  • SPD: EPP standard 5-5-5-15, 2.1V values

The 4GB Corsair PC2-9136 Dominator kit was tested and validated in Corsair's labs using an eVGA 680i SLI nvidia chipset motherboard (P32 bios) and comes with the Corsair Dominator Airflow fan which consists of 3x40mm fans just like the Corsair Dominator PC2-10000C5DF kit.

Viewing Corsair's latest IC inquiry thread listing of ICs, most of Corsair's product lines have transitioned to PSC - powerchip ICs and the 4GB Corsair PC2-9136 Dominators are no exception!

System specs
  • Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 L739A640
  • Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme + 120x38mm Panaflo 103cfm (MX-2 TIM)
  • DFI LP LT P38-T2R 1/11 Official bios
  • 128MB Gainward FX5200 PCI
  • 2x2GB Corsair PC2-9136C5DF Dominator dual channel kit (dimm 1+3 slots)
  • 750GB Samsung HD753LJ
  • Pioneer DVD-RW
  • 620W Corsair HX620
  • WinXP Pro SP2

Results:

Everest Ultimate SPD settings for modules - looks like week 12, 2008 made with a week 13 packaging date on module's Dominator heatsink label - 08130508 v1.1

I've started testing on DFI LT X38-T2R motherboard with 1/11 official bios and they overclock very easily just by setting memory to 571Mhz 5-5-5-15 and vdimm to 2.10v I was already booting and memtest86+ v2.01 stable!

@585Mhz 5-5-5-15 2.10v

Quick jump to 585Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.10v still was easily quad Super Pi 32M stable (hyperpi v0.99 gui wrapper) and single Super Pi 32M stable !

4GB Corsair PC3-9136C5DF @610Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.23v

Using setFSB from 595Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.23v in windows I slowly pushed the FSB and thus the memory clocks to 610Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.23v for max validation :)

Straight boot from bios managed to push the 4GB Corsair PC3-9136C5DF to 595Mhz 5-5-5-15 at 2.23v for single Super Pi 32M pass. Have yet to try quad super Pi or higher vdimm :)

not sure of retail price but on newegg.com the lower model 2x2GB Corsair PC2-8500C5D is around US$183 to get an idea what the 2x2GB PC2-9136C5DF will be
