Corsair has just released their Dominator Platinum DDR4 3400 MHz memory kits. These kits were first shown off a CES back in January and run at a very impressive speed of 3400 MHz. This kit is designed to work specifically with Gigabyte’s X99-SOC Champion motherboard. The memory and motherboard duo together create one of the highest performance enthusiast PC platforms currently available.
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!
