Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 2666C10 DDR3 Memory Kit Review

Memory by leeghoofd @ 2012-08-30

It has remained relatively quiet at the Corsair RAM department; especially with the launch early this year of Intel's 3rd generation processors, most RAM manufacturers had an entire dedicated Ivy Bridge lineup ready. Their high end versions warranting exhilarating speeds of 2400mhz and beyond. Best off all, these kits are not limited for benching purposes only, but also perfectly suitable for daily usage. American RAM giant Corsair however seemed to be more focused on power supplies, AIO liquid cooling solutions and their rapidly expanding SSD and case market, a real disappointment for the enthusiast RAM fans, as everyone was dreaming of another stellar RAM kit alike their infamous GTX2 Hyper based Dominator kit. Enthusiasts have been sitting on their hunger for a new breed of high end Corsair DIMMS. However a new wave of gorgeous looking RAMs is coming our way in the shape of the Dominator Platinum series. Is this the turn of the tide for the in Fremont California based RAM manufacturer ?

More Looks

Our 2666C10 kit is based on Samsung IC's according our PR contact. Looking at the achieved OC results we have to agree unanomously. For the the other kits we gladly link you to an adjacent forum as there are wild discussions on which dimm sports which IC's. This link at XS forum also shows some achieved results form daily tweakers and overclockers.

 

Due to the fact Corsair tends to glue their heatspreaders to the IC's no pictures were made of the bare Dimms. However the chrome top integrated light bar is swappable. Allowing different optional LED colours, to really top off your case mod. The optional light bars should be available somewhere in January 2013. Secondly these Dimms can also be hooked up via the LINK software. Allowing the user to read out the IC activity and temperatures. Not really of any benefit to me, but some people like to be in control of everything :)

 

 

Before we go to the testing some more pictures of probably the most sexy Dimms around on our blue planet.
