Corsair Announces Limited Edition 1.5V 8GB Dominator GT Kit

Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced availability in limited quantities of a new 1.5V 8GB Dominator GT DDR3 memory kit with an aggressive timing specification.

The new 8GB dual-channel DDR3 kit is guaranteed to operate at 2133MHz at a memory voltage of 1.5V, and with a groundbreaking timing specification of CL9-11-9. With latency settings this low, the Dominator GT modules have the most aggressive timing specification of any 2x4GB 2133MHz 1.5V memory kit available today.

The new hand-assembled Dominator GT memory kit is the product of a multi-stage component screening process in which individual memory ICs are screened before assembly onto the PCBs, which then undergo additional rigorous testing to ensure reliable performance. Qualification is performed on Intel P67 and P55 motherboards, using the same rigorous test cycle applied to the rest of Corsair's memory product lines. As with all Corsair memory products, Dominator GT is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

"The unprecedented timing specification on the 1.5V Dominator GT kit makes it ideal for overclocking," said Giovanni Sena, Director of Memory Products at Corsair. "Dominator GT memory is designed for enthusiasts who are obsessed with pushing their PC's performance to the limit, and this latest kit is a worthy addition to the family."

The 1.5V 8GB Dominator GT (CMT8GX3M2A2133C9) DDR3 memory kit comes complete with Corsair's patented DHX+ heatsinks and an AirFlow 2 GTL Cooling Fan for exceptional thermal performance. It may be purchased directly from Corsair.com for $499 USD. Limited quantities are available.

1.5v is very impressive but the price in today's market yikes.. You can pick up some G SKill @ 1.65v for only $149.99 with the same cas @ 9-11-9. Now if these can go a cas 6 at 1.65v then I would say worth the price indeed...

I don't get why people are shocked by the price of super selective hand picked sets of ram, I mean these are an impressive offering for sure especially given it's an 8GB kit, but not worth the price to the average user. Serious overlcockers may be willing to give these a look see, but doubtful, these just seem somewhat out of place being an 8GB kit.

In the memory department, I've always stayed away from Corsair because of the price. But it doesn't change the fact that they have 1 of the best reputations BECAUSE of their aggressive strategy that sparked an onslaught of other products in different markets. Their memory is what made them what they are today. But dammit....their prices makes me ache!!
I'm glad that there are companies out there like G Skill :)

I hope this isn't the same con as their DDR3 2133 Dominator's with 9,11,9,27 T2 timings but 4GB kit, it says on the sticker those timings and 1.5v, but in fact takes 1.65v to get up there.

This isn't selective, not with its timings nor speed.
