Corsair Dominator Platinum Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

Corsair Dominator Platinum Review  


Such has been the high quality of the memory modules we've tested recently that it's become harder and harder to separate them. Within reason you can buy any memory kit and be certain it will perform admirably, be fairly inoffensive to look at and, if you're slightly careful about your choice, it will fit underneath any heatsink you desire.

Which does make the whole reviewing part of the equation a little problematic. A glance at the speed and timings and we can tell you almost to the nth degree exactly how well the kit will work and so the choice then is one of price and colour. As both pricing and colour are entirely subjective. A thirteen year old with a paper round will generally find things more expensive than Carlos Slim and who are we to tell you which colour you should like.

Thankfully that's where the Dominator Platinum enters the fray.

Firstly, they are black and silver. So none of that pesky chromatic problem. Secondly they are the very top of the line, strictly for those who want something a little special. So the price is fairly irrelevant. It does have a very cool party piece though, which we'll look at on the next page.
