Corsair launches Dominator Platinum Special Edition CONTRAST

Up to DDR4 3466MHz

Corsair shows new Dominator Platinum memory on almost a yearly basis. Since quite a while the vendor is only marketing these kits as special editions, being numbered. The latest Dominator Platinum Special Edition CONTRAST makes no exception with that rule.


With this special edition, Corsair is using the same heatspreader and 10-layer PCB as always but the color scheme has changed. The bottom part is kept in pearlescent white while the cooling fins are high gloss. The top bar also houses the lighting.

According to Corsair the kits are fully compatible with Intel's X299 as well as 300-series motherboards. Apart from that each module has been tested and screened, which sounds reassuring regarding overclocking potential. So far there should be kits available supporting clock frequencies of up to 3466MHz. As memory overclocking is often limited by the CPU and not directly the memory it could also very well be that on certain platforms and in combination with pre-tested CPUs those kit could even achieve higher clock speeds.

If you feel like this is the perfect memory for your build, you can find those kits in Corsair's web shop. So far the CMD32GX4M2C3466C16W kit is available for 439 Euro, while the CMD32GX4M4C3466C16W kit costs 479 Euro.
