Extremetech is reporting about Corsair Memory’s new XPERT Memory has one seriously distinguishing feature: It has a 10 character alphabetical LED display that snaps in place over your DIMMS. Install the RAM in your system and it automatically offers up your your memory speed, voltage, and DIMM temperature in bright red characters. Remember calculators in the Seventies? It’s that kind of LED display, and it really stands out through a case window.
Better yet, you can use Corsair’s Memory Dashboard to program the memory to display your own personalized greeting (or obnoxious salute). Type in the message, click a button, and your message gets sent to some spare bits on the memory. And from then on, that message will scroll across the display like your very own tiny Times Square Zipper…except it won’t be giving you the latest news headlines and sports scores.
