When it comes to choosing memory for a new system we have many choices. From the high-end with crazy heatspreaders and LED lights to the plain-jane green modules without any heatspreaders. Corsair has always been on my list when recommending memory, especially for the high-end. Previously Corsair’s high-end offering was their Dominator GT line, which were great and were very popular. Corsair is back with a brand new line called their Dominator Platinum. The Dominator Platinum modules are built using only select memory ICs, highly-screened for performance and stability and feature a new industrial design and LED lighting effects. These have to be some of the best looking modules I have seen all year! But how do they perform? Read on to find out!+Continue Reading

Not that long ago we took a look at Crucial’s Ballistix Elite memory and new we are back with the Ballistix Tactical Tracer Memory. Crucial’s Ballistix Tactical memory sits in the middle of the Ballistix line between the Ballistix Sport and the Ballistix Elite. Geared towards gamers the Ballistix Tactical Tracer memory features a very cool heatspreader, activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge, ground-effect LEDs along the bottom and temperature sensors that you can monitor with Crucial’s M.O.D. software. The kit we are taking a look at today is made up of 4 BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB 4GB modules. So that gives us a 16GB kit running at 1866Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v. Is this the kit you want in your gaming rig? Read on to find out!+Continue Reading
A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel’s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core™ processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride.+Continue Reading
