I've been recently checking out memory modules, and I've seen some of these coming with Micron D9 chips, and I've also seen some Corsairs that come with DHX technology.

I did some research on DHX only to discover that it stands for Dual-path Heat eXchange which just helps to keep the memory running cooler.

Can someone care to explain the benefits of Micron D9 vs DHX and which performs better and why?

I've been looking around all over to find the dang answer, lol.

I'd really appreciate it, thank you!

P.S. Is there a visual reference you can see to determine which is D9 and which isn't?

sorry to inform you, but you won't find the answer

you can't compare D9 to DHX, its totally diferent.

DHX is nothing more then Corsair own designed memory cooler. that spikied thing on top.

Micron D9 is the actual memory

those black/gray modules.

Micron D9 is the current performance memory dominant, when it comes to performance memory about 70% of them on the market are Micron.

So despite the DHX technology allowing you to probably OC a little more, the D9s would still outperform the OC'd difference?

And for comparison's sake,

G.Skill D9: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231065

Would be better than

Corsair XMS2 DHX: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145177

Despite that both have the same timings and frequencies, etc.

Or does the DHX series actually have the D9 chip under that heat sink for even more performance?
