Corsair Dominator PC3-12800 (1600MHz) 4GB Kit (Page 1)

We check out a lower latency Corsair kit that looks like it can impress. Let's whack it on the test bed today and see if it does just that.

It seems that companies are concentrating a little more on the lower speed end of the memory market at the moment. Recently we looked at a new Kingston kit which carried with it a 1600MHz DDR clock and today we're looking at a kit from Corsair that carries with it the same speed.


Of course, the speed is the only difference, because in both true Corsair and Dominator style, the timings are quite aggressive. Before we get into too much detail on that, we'll have a look at the package and then the modules themselves before getting into the overclocking side of things.


The Package






It's been a while since we've seen a retail package from Corsair. Most of the time we just get some pretty boring white boxes. The kit looks really nice packaged up, though, and you can see most of the information can be seen, especially once we turn over and the window shows us the important information on the modules themselves.


The Modules






As for the design of the kit, it's not anything you wouldn't have seen before and if it isn't broke, why fix it? - For the most part I like the Dominator heatsink, but it has to be said that in the situation you have to push the modules in from the top, those fins really do a number on your fingers.


As for information on the modules, we've got the Corsair logo on both sides, the Dominator tag on one and the model, timings, speed and other information on the opposite side.
