Corsair has just launched a flamboyant new addition to its flagship Dominator Platinum memory series in the form of two 32GB DDR4 kits that have apparently been designed to reproduce the aesthetic of high-performance automotive engines.
Dubbed the Dominator Platinum Special Edition Torque, this new model's key feature is clearly the unique top bar, which has been given a heat-treated effect in order to mimic the patina that is often found on the exhaust manifolds of high-performance engines. The top bar also has integrated white LEDs, which we are a bit surprised aren't RGB LED (if only due to their ubiquity). The black aluminium heatsinks have been given a brushed finish, while the cooling fins and much of labelling is in an eye-catching shade of orange. As per the model name, these are a special edition modules that will be available in limited quantities, with each kit being individually numbered..
Designed for Intel X99 and 200-series motherboards, the two 32GB Dominator Platinum Special Edition Torque memory kits are available as both a 2x16GB kit and a 4x8GB kit, each with otherwise identical specifications. The CMD32GX4M2C3200C14T model is a dual-channel kit consisting of two 16GB memory modules rated to run at DDR4-3200 with CL14-16-16-36 timings at 1.35 volts. The CMD32GX4M4C3200C14T model is quad-channel memory kit consisting of four 8GB memory modules rated to run at DDR4-3200 with CL14-16-16-36 timings at 1.35V. They are both manufactured with Corsair's custom 10-layer PCB, and feature Samsung B-die ICs that have been binned to ensure that they can be safely overclocked to at least DDR4-3600. Both kits also support XMP 2.0, which should eliminate any of the hassle that is often associated with trying to manually overclock memory.

HomeworldFound - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkI'd buy these but I want a 4x16GB kit.
Makaveli - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkWould you pay $850-$900 for it?
HomeworldFound - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkIf I didn't see something with better value with the same or better specifications, sure.
HomeworldFound - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkI really like that effect.
XabanakFanatik - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - link* 8x16GB kit
Vatharian - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkI have Corsair dominator Platinum 2800 4x16 GB, which lacks the special color and 400 MHz, but I paid $340 for it. I actually tried 3200, but I couldn't find any performance difference, so no point in spending 2x cash on it.
AllIDoIsWin - Friday, May 19, 2017 - linkDepending what you're doing... the performance increase is so minimal.. may as well save your money!
Lolimaster - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkYou could have 64GB of ram a year ago for less than $300
bigboxes - Tuesday, May 16, 2017 - linkbut you can't today. THE END
