A Closer Look

The modules are quite tall, so you may not be able to fit them in small form factor systems, but such use is certainly not what this kit is made for. The black heatspreaders are made of aluminum and cover the entire PCB. Even though the modules are thicker than usual, you will have no problem installing four of these next to each other. The only difference is a cosmetic one, with the information about the modules having been placed on one side, while the other holds the Dominator logo.

Taking a closer look at the stickers, the most important are the specifications. Corsair gives you all the information you will need to run this kit at the intended speed. Everything from CL rating to Voltage requirement is present. The Dominator and Corsair logo are part of the stickers on each side of the memory.

Corsair has raised the PCB and placed a golden layer on the raised part. There is a silver heatsink with fins on this part of the memory module, while the outer, black one covers the memory ICs. This is certainly a unique PCB design, which Corsair has been using for quite some time now. There is a model number printed on the outer edge of each module. The numbers are identical.
