Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Series DDR4 Memory

Fans of Corsair's Dominator Platinum series of memory modules should recognise the series' packaging, maintaining the same shape as the company's initial Dominator DIMMs. This time the box is all-black, matching the modules inside, offering a monochrome appearance that is well suited to RGB illumination.
The kit we have is Corsair's 32GB 4x8GB offering, which runs at speeds of 3600MHz, making it a lot faster than standard DDR4 memory modules.
As usual, Corsair's Dominator Platinum Modules are well protected, utilising the same packaging that the series is known for, with each module being encased in a plastic covering and inserted into a black foam surround. Even the most careless of couriers would be unable to damage these DDR4 modules in transit; unless they were trying of course.
Looking closer at each module, we see a subtle Corsair logo that sits on the surface of the DIMM, with side plates that are forged from anodised aluminium and offers a dark black appearance.
The Top bar of Corsair's Dimonator Platinum modules is also black, this time being die-cast from Zinc Alloy and made black using a microarc oxidation process, The black of the side plates and top bars are surprisingly similar, given the different methods that Corsair used when manufacturing them. The DIMM's top bar can be removed using a set of Allen keys, just like Corsair's previous Dominator Platinum offerings.
At the top of each DIMM, we can clearly see each lighting zone of the module, each of which has a Capellix LED underneath. This design is very different from Corsair's older Dominator Platinum LED offerings, providing end users with a different final look. The word DOMINATOR is also visible from the top of the modules, making it clear that type of memory you are using.
