Corsair's Dominator Platinum memory kits have long been known for their premium aesthetic, acting as the finishing touch for many showpiece PCs over the year. With the Dominator Platinum RGB series, Corsair has not only updated the series for modern times, but have taken RGB lighting to the next level through the company's use of Capellix LEDs, allowing Corsair to offer more addressable RGB lighting zones than other RGB memory offerings.
With these new White Edition DIMMs, Corsair has added an extra splash of variety of its Dominator Platinum RGB lineup, making these kits suitable for more system aesthetics while delivering the same quality as the company's existing all-black modules.
If you are familiar with Dominator Platinum series memory, you will know what to expect when it comes to build quality. To say that these modules boast a premium look and feel is an understatement. Dominator RGB Platinum RGB series memory kits offer a bill of materials that would make anyone stop and pay attention. Side plates of forged aluminium that are anodised, a removable top par that is made from die-cast zinc alloy and coloured through microarc oxidation, fins of stamped aluminium and purpose build light diffusers that are engineered with Capellix LEDs in mind. If you are wondering why these DIMMs sell at premium prices, there's your answer.
Since the release of their original Dominator Platinum series memory modules, Corsair has also worked hard to make its RGB compatible memory kits compliant with 3rd party software control suites, such as ASUS' AuraRGB control software. This is accomplished through an iCUE plugin, and the reverse is possible to control ASUS RGB motherboards using iCUE. Hopefully, the same feat will be true of all motherboard manufacturers in time.
With so much metal in these DIMMs, Corsair's Dominator Platinum DIMMs feel satisfyingly weighty in your hand, not enough to be a concern, but enough to convey the premium nature of these modules. We work with a lot of PC components at OC3D, and we know that few memory kits offer this level of craftsmanship.
Using iCUE, Corsair offers more than enough control options for their Dominator Platinum RGB series memory modules, with the module's primary colours acting as some of the best we have seen in the realm of RGB. Whites are pure, reds are deep, and other primary colours look amazing. Corsair would be foolish not to fill their 2020 product stack with Capellix LEDs, when used well they can genuinely be jaw-dropping.
Anyone who's looking at Corsair's Dominator Platinum series memory will know that they come with a premium price tag. The reason behind this is simple economics. You can't make a premium product without spending more money, it's as simple as that, and the Corsair's Dominator Platinum RGB memory we can see where the money has gone. These modules will cover a variety of capacities and speeds, ensuring that their Dominator Platinum series will cover a broad spectrum of prices.
If you are looking for RGB memory modules with a premium feature set and a build quality to match; Corsair's new Dominator Platinum series is definitely worth looking into.
