While speed might be the name of Corsairs game here, fancy packaging isn't. Coming in some little white boxes, there's not a whole lot to the package; so little that we didn't even bother taking photos of it.
What it seems is that you order the PC3-18000 2GB module as a single piece. Want Tri-Chan? Order three. Dual Chan? Order two. Think you might want to get some extra cooling as well? - Just add that to the package.
All in all, it's not a bad idea; there's really nothing special between ordering a Tri-Chan kit or a Dual-Chan one. All it means is companies have to create separate packaging for the two and if one kit sells out, they have to start to repackage or simply not sell that size.
Having a look at the modules, there's nothing that we haven't seen before. Being part of the Dominator series, the kit carries with it the standard Dominator heatsink which is not only a really mean looking one, but also built extremely well.
As for the labeling, the kit is marked as a Dominator GT kit, but this new set of modules comes in under the new Dominator GTX name. At the moment there seems to be no evidence that Corsair will change the heatsink stickers to coincide with the GTX name, but this could change at any moment.
The standout point of these modules isn't the heatsink, though, or its name for that matter. Instead, it's the massive amount of MHz on offer at some very tidy looking timings. While you can see the important information in the picture above, we'll go into more detail on the speed and timings on the next page.
Finally, before we move on it's worth noting that Corsair sent across the Airflow fan that goes over the top of your modules. They recommend this for the PC3-18000 kit and we would do the same. Again, though, from the looks department this isn't anything we haven't seen before with the same fan being seen in other Dominator GT kits we've looked at.
