Corsair isn't joking around with its latest batch of DDR3 kits for Core i7 systems. The memory firm has launched three kits as part of a new Dominator GT lineup, which mixes blistering clock speeds, fancy cooling, and intimidating price tags.
Expect to find just one Dominator GT kit in stores: the 6GB PC3-15000 offering, which includes three 2GB modules rated for operation at up to 1,866MHz with 7-8-7-20 timings and a 1.65V memory voltage. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can also pop in Corsair's online store for 3GB and 6GB PC3-16000 kits rated for 2,000MHz with the same timings and voltage. Corsair claims the 2GHz Dominator GT modules are "hand-screened, hand-tuned," and available in "very limited quantities."
The firm hasn't skimped on cooling, either. All Dominator GT sticks have single-piece heatsinks with removable cooling fins, which can give way to mounts for liquid cooling, air cooling, or a "custom-designed thermoelectric cooling system." See the image gallery below for photos.
Price-wise, Corsair's online store charges $300 for the 3GB PC3-16000 kit, $580 for the 6GB variant, and $480 for the slightly more pedestrian 6GB PC3-15000 offering. All three products have lifetime warranty coverage.
