DOMINATOR® PLATINUM 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 DRAM 2666MHz C15 Memory Kit
DOMINATOR PLATINUM high-performance DDR4 memory is designed for world-class DDR4 system builds. It's built with hand-screened ICs, undergoes rigorous performance testing, and incorporates patented DHX cooling for reliable performance in demanding environments.
The world’s most advanced DDR4 memory modules
DOMINATOR PLATINUM high-performance DDR4 memory is designed for world-class DDR4 system builds. It's built with hand-screened ICs and incorporates patented DHX cooling for reliable performance in demanding environments. Achieving maximum performance is easy -- built-in XMP 2.0 support gives you trouble-free, automatic overclocking. DOMINATOR PLATINUM modules work with the CORSAIR LINK system for temperature monitoring, and you can even enhance the subtle white LED lighting by adding a light bar kit to match or contrast your system.
Designed for world-class DDR4 systems
DOMINATOR PLATINUM DDR4 modules are designed to take advantage of the improved clock speeds, bandwidth, and capacity of the DDR4 platform. Our modules are tested across multiple DDR4 motherboards for reliably fast performance.
XMP 2.0 SUPPORT FOR TROUBLE-FREE, AUTOMATIC OVERCLOCKING
DOMINATOR PLATINUM is fully compatible with the XMP 2.0 standard. A single setting is all it takes to automatically adjust to the fastest safe speed for your DOMINATOR PLATINUM kit. You’ll get amazing, reliable performance while maintaining full data integrity.
Get more performance and CORSAIR Link control with a Dominator Airflow Platinum LED fan
DOMINATOR PLATINUM DDR4 modules already have generous overclocking headroom, but to push them to extreme performance levels, you need active cooling. The DOMINATOR AIRFLOW PLATINUM is designed for quiet operation and optimal cooling efficiency, and it works with CORSAIR LINK software for customization and control. It’s included with some DOMINATOR PLATINUM kits and optional with others.
With CORSAIR LINK software, you can control PWM fan speeds directly from your Windows desktop, actively monitor the temperature of every DOMINATOR PLATINUM module in your system, and control a host of CORSAIR RGB lighting products.
Designed for Enthusiasts. Backed by CORSAIR.
There's a reason why world-champion overclockers, extreme gaming enthusiasts and high-end system builders all trust CORSAIR for high-performance memory that they can install with confidence and pride. Whether you're breaking your own records or you're simply building a dream gaming rig, you can count on CORSAIR memory.

Why do we need DDR4?
There are four major reasons why DDR4 is set to replace DDR3: it's capable of hitting faster speeds, it's capable of hitting higher densities (16GB DIMMs are expected in 2015), it has improved error correction built into the baseline specification, and it consumes less power for equivalent or better performance than DDR3. In short, while DDR3 is butting up against its limitations today, DDR4 still has a tremendous amount of room to scale.
Does DDR4 have XMP?
Yes! We have been working hard with all major motherboard vendors to ensure compatibility with our high speed DDR4 memory, and that includes XMP. DDR4 employs a new specification, XMP 2.0, while DDR3 remains on XMP 1.3.
How does XMP work on DDR4?
Very similarly to DDR3, but with some caveats. For starters, Haswell-E tops out at a 2666MHz memory strap, which is very low for what DDR4 can do. Since XMP specifies speeds in excess of 2666MHz, your motherboard BIOS has to compensate somehow. Typically, when XMP tells the motherboard to use a higher memory speed than 2666MHz, the motherboard BIOS will bump the BClk strap from 100MHz to 125MHz. That's normal, but that change will also increase the clock speed of the CPU itself; a well-designed BIOS will compensate and bring the CPU clock speed in line.
Where can I learn more about DDR4?
Why am I encountering stability issues with XMP?
While we've been working around the clock with motherboard vendors to maximize compatibility and performance, these technologies are all very new. If you have trouble with stability using either XMP profile, we recommend either manually entering the speed and timings the DDR4 is rated for or running your memory at its default speeds until your motherboard vendor provides a BIOS update to improve stability.

What's the difference between Dominator Platinum DDR4 and Vengeance LPX DDR4?
Is DDR4 backwards compatible with DDR3?
Is DDR4 slower than DDR3?
What can we expect from DDR4 in the future?
We're launching DDR4 at up to 3000MHz speeds and 8GB per stick densities, but that's just this year alone. DDR4 is expected to hit 16GB densities in 2015, allowing your X99 motherboard to support a staggering 128GB of memory (provided it has eight memory slots). In short, it's gonna get bigger, and it's gonna get faster.
