5 out of 5 eggsDominator 2133 2x8gb cmd16gx3m2a2133c9 rocks!

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: Corsair makes excellent performing and visually stunning memory and these Dominator 2133 2x8gb kit will not let you down. Very smooth install with excellent heat dissipation. The led illuminated heat sink bar adds a nice touch. Build quality is noticeably superior to any other memory I have ever used. Even at 1.65v they run extremely cool.

Cons: Only one con and that is if you have Corsair link and you decide to hood up the port on these modules you may be upset with the limited amount of things you can read and or do. Expected to be able to change the color, but no. You can buy new light bars for them but it is not multi colored. Other trivial con is that the specified speed is and XMP JDEC setting that will, possibly depending on mother board, have to be manually chosen. That being said once chosen manually its works excellent.

Other Thoughts: These are matched with a Gigabyte 990fxa-ud3 v4.1 board and an AMD 9590fx Black Edition Processor. No overclocking of Processor or Memory. Using a Corsair water cooler too. The illumination on water block can be matched to illumination color of the memory and if you have a Corsair case it can also match the power and led HDD illumination too. Very visually pleasing and subtle. 5 stars for an awesome made product and products.

5 out of 5 eggsReal fast - tight timings

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: This is priced at same platinum series 2400 MHz with loser timing CAS11. I'd rather have slightly tighter timings CAS9 and Overclock it to 2400 MHz.

Cons: Expensive - The premium is for the looks and quality memory being used.

Other Thoughts: LED lights add special-effect. Sweetest looking memory of ever had. It's running XMP profile easily and I don't need to overclock it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent RAM

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: Corsair's Dominator Platinum line is really something special. In terms of aesthetics, I truly believe that these are the best looking modules out there. The light bar really gives a feeling that this RAM is something special. In terms of build quality, these sticks feel like they could withstand anything. They are extremely heavy, and there is no play at all in any of the components of the heat spreader - everything is just solidly attached. I have always been a fan of Corsair products, and offerings like this really shows the Corsair is still on their game.

Cons: None.

Pros: - Very reliable, solid product
- Custom PCB, heatsink, and LED look great

Cons: None really, except price. If you are able to get them at $200 or less do not hesitate, worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: This is the Lamborghini of desktop memory :-)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat RAM

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: performing very well on my Asus Maximus VI Formula.

Cons: Price maybe discouraging but if you see it on sale below it's retail price ($199), buy it.

Other Thoughts: Looks great, the light is cutomizable if you want to upgrade it but this one lits up already.

I would buy another set to make my rig 32gb but for now 16gb serves me pretty good.

Also, when installed it was detected 1333mhz, so changed it to xmp profile and it's performing as intended (2133mhz)

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: Great stuff, runs at or above rated speed, running mine at 2400. The lights on them add some bling to my case.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great!

This review is from: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model CMD16GX3M2A2133C9

Pros: Worked Immediately with MSI Z87 Mpower motherboard at 2133 after enabling xmp profile along with intel i7-4770k and uefi samsung 840 pro on windows 8.1 with msi 760 4gb video card.

Purchased this from a local retail store that sounds like french fries after the competitor's "identical" set, named similar to "snake" 3, threw many, many, many varying errors at 2133 but zero at 1600 (Patriotic memory at that speed was not on MSI's list of compatible memory, but this is). Moral of story: this just works! Apparently, working at stated speeds isn't just a plug and play thing, and working as advertised is a "pro."

Cons: Cost is higher than competitors, but you get what you pay for.
Many online reviews say corsair ram can't really be stably overclocked unless your specific set is special. So, buy the speed you really want, because you're unlikely to be able to overclock to the speed you want.
