If you have just built a new system and are using one of the latest high performance Z77 motherboards then it might be time to consider a memory upgrade. Today we are analysing the latest Corsair Dominator Platinum memory, aimed at the upper end of the enthusiast market. These kits are available in speeds up to 2666 MHz with various bundles from 8 GB to 64 GB.
Corsair kindly sent us their flagship kit which is primarily designed for the latest Z77 platform. These 4GB sticks run at timings of 10-12-12-31 at 2,666mhz … which right now is class leading. This kit costs £259.99 inc vat however, so they will need to perform right at the cutting edge to justify the price tag.
That is what we aim to find out today, by pairing it up with the stunning ASUS Maximus V Formula Z77 motherboard.
