In spite of the recent rise in memory prices, Corsair has seen it fit to expand its Dominator memory family with two jumbo-sized, high-speed DDR3 kits. These newcomers have eye-popping capacities of 16GB and 24GB, which they pair with fairly peppy 1600MHz speed ratings.
The 16GB kit includes four 4GB modules, all rated for operation at 1600MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings. Corsair says it designed this kit for "Core i5/i7 performance motherboards with two memory channels"—Lynnfield- and Clarkdale-based desktops, in other words. The 24GB offering combines six of the same 4GB modules, and as you might guess, Corsair targets that one at triple-channel, X58-based Core i7 systems (the kit has purportedly been "rigorously qualified and tested" with such platforms).
In spite of their clear enthusiast pedigree, these two kits are for "programmers, scientists, videographers, and other data-intensive users," according to Corsair. Programmers and scientists will be free to marvel at the "racing-blue highlights and fins" and use the included 60-mm Dominator Airflow Fan, er, fans to keep all of those memory chips cool.
