Intel XMP and Memory Performance Basics
By Jeff Checchi, on October 25th, 2011
When it comes to choosing the right memory for your system there are three main factors to consider regarding performance. These factors are memory frequency, latency and density. This presentation will briefly go over these performance factors and also explain Intel® XMP (Extreme Memory Profile). With XMP the days of trial and error memory overclocking are gone. XMP allows guaranteed overclocked memory performance to be enabled with the “flick of a switch”, while still allowing expert users the option of manual configuration and tweaks, beyond the officially tested and guaranteed overclocked settings.

Corsair Memory Dominates the Intel XMP Compatible Memory Lists
By Mike Clements, on August 30th, 2011
Corsair works very hard with Intel to provide memory that complies with Intel's XMP standards. This means that not only does the user get the benefit of predefined performance settings, they also get an extra level of assurance that Corsair memory is tested with and compatible with their Intel based system. In fact, Corsair has more XMP approved memory listed at Intel than all other memory vendors combined on the Intel XMP charts:
How to use Memtest86 to Troubleshoot Your Memory
By Jeff Checchi, on July 29th, 2011
In tech support, one of the most common questions we get is “How can I tell if my memory is bad?” Many OS errors that you experience may mention something about your memory or DRAM having a problem — however these errors are not always cuased by faulty memory. In many cases these errors can be generated by your other components such as the motherboard or CPU, or in some cases they can even be a software related issue. The best way to find out if the errors are generated by your memory is to test your memory with Memtest86.
