Corsair Dominator 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz C7 Memory Kit ReviewMon, Jun 27, 2011 - 12:00 AM
Corsair Dominator CMP4GX3M2C1600C7 Conclusion
The Corsair Dominator PC3-12800 kit came to dominate and based on the amount of overclocking you can achieve I would say it did just that. While I knew this memory would be a good performer I was surprised that I was able to push this memory to 2132Mhz and keep the timings fairly tight. Not bad for our test system that was made up of the ASUS P8P67 motherboard and an Intel Core i5-2500K processor. From what I know about the PCS Chips branded memory ICs used on this specific kit these usually hit a wall around 2200MHz, so I was happy with how far I could push the kit.
I would say that if you are skilled at overclocking memory and you want to get a lot of performance for a reasonable price, this kit strikes a great balance. All Corsair DDR3 memory kits are backed my a limited lifetime warranty as well, so this is one of the few items in life that you can buy and never have to worry about having to pay to replace!
Legit Bottom Line: The Corsair Dominator CMP4GX3M2C1600C7 memory kit was found to have plenty of overclocking headroom, but is priced higher than most DDR3 1600MHz kits on the market today.
