Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4x4GB) 2666mhz Memory Review

Rating: 9.0.

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.

The full selection of kits on sale can be seen on Corsair’s website here.

    The only thing I will say is that memory has very little impact on gaming. id much rather pump the money into a new CPU or GPU.

    Ive 1866mhz memory in my system, i never even think about changing it to be honest. dont see the need. 8GB is more than enough also.

    went straight to the Overclocking page. i find overclocking is very much in the hands of the board manufacturer. ASUS have great bioses.

    my G,Skill 2,133mhz never went any higher on my MSI board, but on my new ASUS board I can get 2,450mhz with a couple of timings looser.

    These are fantastic results, but @ Darth Digglers – remember this memory isn’t for the mainstream audience, the price reflects that. this is meant to be for the hard core guys who want to push all components in their system to the limit.
