Did the Corsair Dominators live up to the name? Yes, I'd say they did. At $130, this set of Corsair Dominators is pretty darn affordable, especially considering a DDR2 1066 kit still costs about $110. If you purchase memory with Dominator in the name, you know it's going to be good. The Dominators overclocked well and were able to go slighty above the 2000MHz mark. However, Kingston's HyperX was able to go farther, and it is slightly cheaper. Performance isn't the only thing you're getting when purchasing the Dominators though. You also get a big beefy heat spreader. This big beefy heat spreader is capable of Corsair's innovative DHX cooling. This will allow you to push your memory further, and for longer.
If you're looking for some of the best memory you can get, then look no further. Not only will the Dominators help your system perform well, they'll also make it look cool - or at least the Dominators will look cool. Which is just one more reason to purchase them. If you've got a rig that looks not so great, you've got nothing to worry about - when showing people your PC's guts, their eyes will instantly be averted to the awesomeness of your Dominators.
This may not be entirely true, but the Dominators are a great set of memory nonetheless. If you've got the money to spend, I'd say spend it on these babies!
