Memory performance has reached a level whereby it takes something special to really stand out from the many alternatives. Corsair took the aesthetics of your average RAM stick and blew them into the weeds with the Dominator Platinum. A gorgeous looking kit that backs up the looks with great performance. Without a doubt the best looking memory of all time.
One of the biggest changes from Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge was the IMC, and the speeds attainable are now incredible with certain combinations capable of 3000MHz or higher. If you fancy just installing and running, then the Kingston Predator at a blazing 2666MHz is the perfect combination of ridiculous speed in an attractive package, backed by one of the biggest names in the industry.
Remember when 1GB was "loads o' RAM™"? Amazing how things change. Most phones these days have a gig, and with the easy of 1080P video recording and cameras that would make David Bailey blush, RAM is even more in demand than ever. With the Trident X G.Skill showed you didn't need to sacrifice performance for capacity. By no means cheap, and yet irresistible.
