Today we're going to have a closer look to the next memory kit. This time it's not two 8GB sticks but four 4GB modules from Corsair. The Dominator Platinum series is Corsair's new ultra-high-performance DDR3 memory. They feature a new heatsink design, LED lighting with special effects as well as cherry-picked ICs. The one we are reviewing today is the second fastest of the line clocked at DDR3-2666 MHz and Corsair does this at CL10 timings. Spoiler: They can easily do DDR3-2800 MHz CL10.

been in the business with high-end memory modules since quite a long time and with
their flagship modules Corsair is back in the game. Until today G.Skill was

at DDR3-2'666 MHz CL10 and 1.65v that's really not shy. This is some serious

It's not even the fastest kit of their line-up. Corsair also has
DDR3-2800 MHz CL11 and CL12 kits in their portfolio. Enough talking, let's have
