CORSAIR Announces Dominator Platinum ROG Edition Memory

CORSAIR, a world leader in enthusiast memory, PC components and high-performance gaming hardware today announced the latest addition to its industry leading range of XMP 2.0 certified DDR4 memory kits, the CORSAIR Dominator Platinum ROG Edition. Developed in collaboration with the ASUS Republic of Gamers team, the 16GB 4 x 4GB DDR4 kit is fitted with a unique Republic of Gamers Red and Black brushed aluminium finish, to perfectly compliment the celebrated ASUS Republic of Gamers line of motherboards.

Clocked at 3,200MHz for blistering high-bandwidth performance on Intel 100-series motherboards, CORSAIR Dominator Platinum ROG Edition also boasts a custom overclocked ROG XMP 2.0 memory profile only accessible with ASUS Z170 Republic of Gamers motherboards*, pushing the kit to an even faster 3,333MHz with just a single setting.
As the pinnacle of the CORSAIR range of high performance memory, Dominator Platinum is the choice of PC enthusiasts who demand the world's most advanced memory. Striking industrial design, machined aluminium heatsinks and integrated LED lighting make Dominator Platinum unmistakable, while patented DHX cooling directly cools the PCB for superior thermal performance, allowing the rigorously screened memory to perform at its absolute best.

The collaboration between CORSAIR and ASUS Republic of Gamers highlights both company's commitment to providing gamers and enthusiasts the tools needed to push their hardware to the absolute limits.

Nice! I like the looks of that a lot! Would like to see a DDR3 version of it, as there are MANY people still on older generation rigs using DDR3, including myself. And at this time, in terms of gaming, there is no reason for me to upgrade to a Intel's 6th gen CPU's and Z170 from my current 4th gen 4790k and ROG Maximus VII Hero Z97. Many gamers out there are still using the 4th gen platform, and I'm sure this RAM offering would sell if it was indeed offered in the DDR3 variant, as well. Myself, I am using 16GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 2400MHz, but would definitely consider buying this.. if it was offered.

Maybe it is going to be offered and it's just not being shown yet?

Great, more unnecessarily blingy and tall memory. At least this range doesn't have LEDs on it.

Joy, slap a ROG sticker on it and an already available red top and Bob's your uncle. But for 99% of the users all they're going to see is red tops, whoop tee doooo.. Add some led's and actually make it stand out o_O

Too bad Asus heavily toned down the red on z170 boards so grey would look better

(i have the g.skill with the red centre and think it looks out of place)

I have a Rampage V Extreme, and I saw this and I was super excited until I got to the part where they don't support the X99 platform.

No reason they wont work with X99 just expect to actually have to manually set timings as opposed to the XMP profile working.
