Using geizhals as our
price research tool, we find that offers for 4x4GB sets of 2666C10 Dominator
Platinum Series start at 418 Euros excluding shipping across the EU. Finding
another kit, which shares the same specs, turns out to be quite difficult. In
fact, there is only one kit from G.Skill, that features the same clocks and
timings. If you then compare prices you're going to see that G.Skill sells their
kit for 100 Euro less. Furthermore there are three other kits, which share the
same clocks but feature looser timings (CL11). The Avexir Core for 200 Euros, the G.Skill TridentX for 300 Euros and
the Avexir Core MPower Edition for 350 Euros.
Compared to competing products the price is very high but is there really
competition when it comes to such a kit? I mean the overclocking headroom is beyond
awesomeness. It's made by Corsair (aka a very high manufacturing quality). And
when you open the package it makes you feel like you open an Apple product. In
the end you get what you paid for, even tough it's hilariously expensive.
Corsair managed to do a come back in the ultra high-end memory
market where G.Skill took the lead. This kit is better, faster and stronger than
everything we tested so far.
IC quality is way better than the specs
Made by Corsair
The Corsair Dominator Platinum CMD16GX3M4A2666C10 kit receives the rating of
