5 out of 5 eggsDominator

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: The color matches my case build, while very trivial its nice not to have blue and orange components. Its ram it holds information in limbo until I use it...

Cons: Those LED lights are not as annoying as everyone claims. Lights are on everything these days, and since these are great for overclocking, the motherboard I have that is also great for overclocking actualy has brighter lights...

Other Thoughts: I just upgraded from the Vengeance 4GB X4 to a 2 x8. Basically it was the only set that was on the QVL from my ASUS MOBO, and unfortunately I read review after review about how not to get these because the Vengeance are the same thing.... Well first thing I noticed was the ineradicable weight difference. While the performance is really = to the vengeance, I think these are going to over clock much better and stay a little cooler than the Vengeance. I look forward to placing the vengeance back in with the old i5 3570k system, and know that this will be the last time I purchase the vengeance. I will be buying a second set to bring the system up to 32GB.

5 out of 5 eggsmore ram!

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: put this on a mini-itx build that only had two ram slots, no issued passed 24hr burn testing no problem. I've got dominators in other pc's and no issues with any of them.

They look so boss with the light bar upgrade kits..

Cons: none other than a little pricey.

1 out of 5 eggs1- DOA stick

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Discovered that Memtest does what it should do. Have not seen Memtest scroll so many error locations. They test these before being packed in the fancy box? Was hoping these $$ sticks would be golden but they had to be RMA'd.

Cons: Didn't help in getting the rig built. Happens but when timing is bad, more delays to getting a working system up and running. 15 to 30 return options are used up quickly with DOA and RMA turn-arounds.

Other Thoughts: On the OVL list for the mobo. Was hoping these would be great like the reviews...oh well.

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Around 2 years ago I slapped these puppies into my first mini-itx rig and they have never given me a problem since. I'm about to build a new mini-itx computer and I see no reason why I should buy new memory...

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat stable RAM

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: I got this more for the aesthetics than anything else. Looks amazing and if i wanted to change the color later to match a different motherboard theme I can!

Works amazing out of the box

I had to reset the CMOS to clear some BIOS settings

I just set it to XMP profile from then on, flawless!

I had 8GB total memory and wanted to jump to 16GB since applications/programs are using more and more memory and I wanted to have web browsers/videos up while gaming etc

Cons: Price is a bit steep. It was around $240 when I got it. But the price you pay for a luxury item like this.

Other Thoughts: Might get another pair of these to increase my total and not have to worry about RAM until I upgrade years from now to a DDR4 motherboard

2 out of 5 eggsOne stick out of two defect on arrival

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Super look, nice lighting, looks like good memory from the stick that worked.

Cons: Having one faulty RAM on a package at that price is unacceptable. I had issues installing Windows and wondered why. Removing the faulty RAM, I was able to install Windows flawlessly. I tried to run mdsched in Windows 8.1 and it found an issue in the first 10 seconds of the test with the faulty stick in.

Also, I felt like in the presentation of the product the light was customizable from the software side, or something included in the package. It is NOT. You need to buy a little accessory kit in order to have that functionnality. They also show red in the video and it does not even exist.

Other Thoughts: I am very disappointed that this product didn't deliver. I expected something better from Corsair. I am not even asking for a replacement, it will be a return and I'm going back to GSkills.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Replacement Policy

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: 2 years ago I built a new rig that included this ram from Corsair. 4 days ago I started getting BSOD. Testing pointed to memory. Sure enough 1 of the 2 8g chips was bad. Newegg put me intouch with Corsair. 3 days later I have new memory sloted and operational and my only cost was the return shipping of original memory sticks. Amazing service!!

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome.

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A1600C9

Pros: Worked great right out of the box. Set XMP in bios no problems. Looks great.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are using a corsair 600t case with a corsair H100i cooling system you have move radiator towards the side panel a little to clear the light bar on the memory stick.
