Corsair launched the world’s fastest DDR2 memory, the TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR. Designed for the new NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI media and communications (MCP)-based motherboards, the new DOMINATOR extends Corsair’s leadership in ultra high performance memory.

The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR is designed to unleash performance of the new NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI-based platform. Built using RAMs that pass Corsair’s aggressive speed screening process, the new DDR2-9136 DOMINATOR is the world’s only production-ready memory rated at 1142MHz. In performance benchmark testing at third-party review sites, many of these modules have been reported delivering up to 1200MHz of performance when overclocked. The new TWIN2X2048-9136C5D feature Enhanced Performance Profiles (EPP) technology, allowing PC enthusiasts simplified overclocking success and access to more advanced memory specifications. The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR is certified by NVIDIA as SLI-Ready Memory, joining the NVIDIA SLI technology ecosystem to provide a building foundation for an ultimate performance PC.

Corsair’s new DOMINATOR line of memory modules features innovative quad-layer heat sink design and Corsair’s patent-pending Dual-path Heat Xchange (DHX) technology. DHX technology is the world’s most advanced memory module thermal dissipation technology where heat is dissipated through two paths - the leads of the BGA chips into the printed circuit board (PCB) and the back of the BGA packages into the high-performance extruded aluminum heat sinks. Thanks to the advanced thermal design of the DOMINATOR, memory modules rated at scorching-fast 1142MHz operate with rock solid stability without the need of elevated voltage. The result of the combination of DHX technology and the high rated speed means PC enthusiasts can enjoy added performance edge at both stock speed and when overclocked.
In addition to the DHX technology, these modules can be further cooled using Corsair’s newly launched DOMINATOR Airflow Fans. These fans offer direct airflow to the DOMINATOR modules for increased thermal dissipation and active heat transfer away from the module.
TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR Features:
  • Tested as matched pairs at guaranteed speed of 1142 MHz
  • Latency Timings: 5-5-5-15
  • Memory voltage: 2.1V
  • Optional Corsair Airflow fan assembly for optimal cooling
  • Available in 2GB kits
  • The TWIN2X2048-9136C5D DOMINATOR 2GB kits will be available soon.
