We absolutely loved the Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB memory when it came out back in 2019. Corsair not only continued their iconic Dominator style with these modules they added some very sleek and sexy RGB LEDs. These are not just ordinary RGB LEDs either, they are Capellix RGB LEDs. These are smaller than typical RGB LEDs, use less power, and are brighter. With their diffusers Corsair has created a look that is all their own and you know as soon as you see these modules that they are Dominator Platinum RGB modules.
Initially these modules were only available in black, but it was only a matter of time till Corsair added a white version. We’ve seen them offer white versions of their Cases and AiO’s so many people were waiting for these white modules. The actual white is like a pearl white and is probably the best white I’ve seen on a heatspreader. Also the little changes like the gold on the top heatsink and the rivets really set these modules off. They are some of the best-looking modules I’ve ever reviewed.
When it comes to performance you are know you are getting quality modules as Dominator memory features a 10-layer custom PCB as well as hand-picked ICs. This memory typically performs better than any other memory we test, it is just that good. Now typically that performance is carried on to overclocking, but with this kit we were only able to get another 133 MHz (3333 MHz) out of it, which was not only disappointing, but surprising. We were able to get 400 MHz out of the 3200 MHz kit we reviewed back in 2019 so it was a little puzzling why this kit would not go over 3333 MHz. We tried upping the voltage and even loosening up the timings, but no luck.
The CMT32GX4M2C3200C16W kit we reviewed today is selling at our favorite online retailer for $214.07, which is a slight premium over other modules, but you are getting what you pay for. Overall ThinkComputers gives the Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB White DDR4-3200 32GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score.
