August 30 - Fan on a stick

Fan on a stick... of DDR2 DIMMS. Highly esteemed, highly overpriced memory maker Corsair, has launched a new type of high-performance memory, that really does make you stop and stare. The XMS2 Dominator (Yes, that's what they called it. We can't make this stuff up.) has a built-in specially designed heatsink for heat dissipation. The product line contains two 2GB modules, both clocked at ridiculously high speeds of 1111Mhz and 1066Mhz. The higher speed of the two ratings has low latency timings of 4-4-4-12-2T, whereas the other module has timings of 5-5-5-13-2T. Both low latency, meaning Corsair have obviously forgotten that the Intel Core 2's Netburst Architecture doesn't get on with the lower latency timings, therefore gains no advantage by using it. I saved the fan till last. It's actually an add-on, costing £12.99 ($25 USDs), but when you see the price of the RAM, you'll be scrambling to get this to make sure it doesn't explode when your testing out your overclocking skills.
