Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB White Overview
If you are not familiar with Corsair Dominator Platinum memory it has a more industrial look, which I am a huge fan of. The first thing you notice about the modules when you pick them up is actually how heavy they are. This shows that the heatspreaders are quality and not just some flimsy piece of metal.
With the white version of this memory Corsair has done with an all white heatspreader. The white is a perfect pearl white, which pictures really don’t do justice. In the center of the modules is a black Corsair logo and small text that says Dominator Platinum RGB. Corsair did stick with a black PCB, it would have been nice to see an all-white PCB, but the black does not look bad.
Towards the top of the module you have the another heatsink. This is part of Corsair’s patented Dual-Path DHX cooling technology, which cools the memory through both the PCB and the housing above the memory. Instead of this heatsink being black they have changed it to gold which really goes well with the white on the heatspreaders. Also the rivets holding the headspreader together have been changed to gold.
Flipping the modules over there is a small sticker that has your model number, speeds, timings and voltage. As a reminder we have the CMT32GX4M2C3200C16W kit which is a 32GB kit (2x16GB) running at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V.
At the top of each module you’ll find twelve Capellix RGB LEDs under a diffuser. Ten of these diffusers are just squares, but in the center there is a Dominator logo. Unlike traditional RGB LEDs Capellix RGB LEDs are actually mounted directly on the PCB of the memory. These RGB LEDs take up far less space compared to normal RGB LEDs too (0.2mm³ surface area vs 2.8mm³). While they take up less space they actually are actually brighter and use 40% less power.
The modules are a little taller than normal modules, but not massive by any means. We measured them at 54.6 mm tall.
