The Corsair Dominator GT memory continues the tradition of quality and reliability that the Dominator name has come to be known for. While this set did not break any world records, it performed the best when put to the test again other sets of memory in its class. The Dominator GT set was the best in five of the nine benchmarks and tied in two of the remaining four. When it came to overclocking, the Dominator set was able to be pushed an additional 120MHz, which might not sound big, but the bump was done with the low latencies kept the way they were, which yielded a nice gain in bandwidth, allowing for better overall scores in the PCMark Vantage and Sandra tests. The one downside I have with this set is the price. While the memory performed the best of the sets, the gain needs to be weighed against the premium for the Dominator GT memory. Is it worth it? If you have the money and want the best, then by all means I think it is. But if you are on a budget and have to take into account the system price as a whole, the $349.99 price tag might have you looking at other sets, such as its little brother the XMS3 DHX memory.
All in all, I am quite pleased with the Corsair Dominator GT TW3X1600C6GT memory. With the option to cool it using water or even TEC, your potential for this kit is toward the sky as long as you are willing to fork over the cash to have the best.
