Part# Clarification Required

Recommended Posts



I just bought 2 x XMS 512 3200PRO modules with Part# CMX512-3200PRO with CAS mentioned on them.But I do not seem to find this part# mentioned anywhere on the Official Corsair web site nor on any forum thread so far, I have esp looked in the XMS PRO Series as mentioned on the site.but its not there. The other XMS PRO modules there are: CMX512-3200C2PRO

XMS3200 512MB 2-3-3-6 184 DIMM Black XMS ProSeries and CMX512-3200XLPRO

XMS3200 512MB 2-2-2-5 184 DIMM Black XMS ProSeries.


The only module


XMS3200 1024MB 3-3-3-8 184 DIMM Black XMS ProSeries

stating 3200PRO but its a 1024 module.


Well the sticker at the back of the packing reads like this:









8 70584 00188 1


The heatsinks are geniun black as other Black XMS PRO SERIES modules with leds on them and the modules are correctly recognized by the system and working perfectly.


Plz someone clarify my doubts as to why there is no mention of Part# CMX512-3200PRO XMS512 3200PRO Black XMS SERIES at the website or else I have bought an older version ?

What exactly are you looking for?

XMS3200 is listed in XMS Qualification and Testing, and weather the modules are the Pro version or PT would not make any difference as that would be a cosmetic difference only. What does C2, LL, PT, R or RE stand for in the part#?

And the Data Sheet for CMX1024-3200 would be the same spec. Just we did not list your specific part# sorry.

Thank you and really appreciate your very prompt answer to my clarifation query.

What actually I wanted to know or rather get it confirmed that the Corsair Memory CMX512-3200PRO, Which I bought is genuinly manufactured by Cosair,but as this specific part# was not listed on you website, I got concerned if its original or counterfeit. Cuz if something goes wrong and its not working good,and as per your "LifeTime warranty",it can be replaced through RMA Policy.


Well,Here,Your RMA Policy clearly points out that " If its originally manufactured by Corsair and not a counterfiet",only then its eligible for RMA.


Well,ok,as per your confirmation i'am satisfied that the Modules of memory with part# CMX512-3200PRO, Which I have bought are genuine and manufactured by Corsair.


Secondly, Is it possible and ok to lower the latancy timmings on my memory and how far is it recommended to achieve faster performance.


Thank you once again.

Yes we make our Pro modules here and I have not seen anyone counterfitting this part. You can follow the link in my signature and lollk up XMS3200 for the tested settings.

Your specific part number may not be listed but any XMS3200Pro module data sheet will be the same as far as the spec.

The Pro modules Data sheet can be found here
