Corsair introduces the Dominator Platinum 3400MHz 16GB Limited Edition Orange quad-channel memory kit. Designed to match the color scheme of the Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion motherboard, this DDR4 kit promises supreme overclocking performance.
The memory modules use an aluminum heatspreader with DHX fins and customizable "light pipes" and the kit comes with Corsair's Dominator Airflow Platinum LED fan solution. The modules run at 3400MHz at 16-18-18-40 timings with a voltage of 1.35V. Pricing is a whopping $999.99 and you get lifetime warranty.
To demonstrate the overclocking potential of these sticks, Corsair let overclocking legend HiCookie take them for a spin. Using the Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion motherboard he managed to overclock one of these memory sticks to 4365.6MHz using LN2 cooling.
The fastest DDR4 memory available from Corsair, the Dominator Platinum 3400MHz 16GB (4x4GB, 16-18-18-36) memory kits have a striking industrial with an orange anodized heat spreader that matches the color scheme on Gigabyte SOC motherboards. Like all Dominator Platinum memory modules, the new kits have patented DHX technology for cooler operation, user-swappable colored “light pipes” for customizable downwash lighting, and Corsair Link compatibility for real-time temperature monitoring. Dominator Platinum memory is built with hand-screened ICs, undergoes rigorous performance testing, and incorporates state-of-the-art cooling for reliable performance in demanding environments.
“Each Dominator Platinum 3400MHz DDR4 memory module is built with hand-picked ICs and tuned timing parameters to achieve blistering performance on Gigabyte’s X99-SOC Champion extreme overclocking motherboard,” said Thi La, Chief Operating Officer at Corsair. “Achieving insanely fast memory clock speeds is just the beginning. We can’t wait to see the incredible high-performance machines that PC enthusiasts create with them.”
“Our Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion is engineered with highly optimized trace paths between the processor and DIMM sockets to enable incredible memory clock speeds,” said Colin Brix, Director of Marketing of Gigabyte’s Motherboard Business Unit. “We worked with Corsair to tune an exceptional edition of Dominator Platinum DDR4 that can help overclockers push the X99-SOC Champion to reach unprecedented memory speeds.”
