New triple-channel Corsair DDR3 kits run at up to 2GHz


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.
