Who does not know? Brand that is synonymous with high-performance memory module it is always trying to provide extra performance over high-end memory their high quality. In 2011, the Memory Corsair Dominator GT and GTX series became flagship product -them (one of the Dominator GT we have reviewed here). In 2012, the Corsair offers a new series that will be top of the Dominator series ever, the strong Corsair Dominator Platinum series .As
Dominator GT / GTX, Platinum Dominator series memory modules must offer a premium high performance. One of the Dominator series Platinum lab JagatReview stopped at this time is strong Corsair Dominator 2133MHz 16GB Kit Platinum.
Let’s look at this more closely memory!
Here’s the specs
strong Corsair Dominator 2133MHz 16GB Kit Platinum (CMD16GX3M4A2133C9) as stated on its website:
- Warranty: Lifetime strong
- Size: 16GB Kit (4 x 4GB)
- Performance Profile: XMP strong
- Fan Included: No strong
- Tested Voltage: 1.5 V strong
- Speed Rating: PC3-strong 17 066 (2133MHz)
- Tested Latency: 9-11-10-30 strong
Corsair Dominator Platinum packaged in a luxurious packaging, unlike the ‘blister packs’ which we used on Dominator GT encountered.
Dominator GT / GTX dominated by black and red, but the Dominator Platinum has a blend of different colors, namely black and silver. In addition, quite a striking difference between Corsair Dominator Platinum with Dominator GT / GTX is the presence of an aluminum plate fin surrounding heatspreadernya, as seen below:This is the appearance of the module
Corsair Dominator Platinum. Note also there is a connector ‘Corsair Link Interface’ in the right corner of memory modules allow you to install the Corsair Airflow PRO (sold separately) ..
The Dominator Platinum, you get a strong “Light Bar” is installed on each module, to provide an interesting lighting effect. Starting in September 2012, the Corsair also plans to offer additional Light Bar (sold separately) with different colors.
following lighting effects provided by Dominator Platinum Light Bar:
Here is a system setup that we use:
- Processor: Intel Core i7-strong 3930K @ 4000MHz (40 x 100)
- Motherboard: MSI Big Bang Xpower strong II & Intel BIOS 1.4 DX79SI
- Memory: Platinum 2133 CAS9 Corsair Dominator 16GB (4x4GB) Kit (CMD16GX3M4A2133C9)
- Graphic Card: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 strong Reference (732/950)
- Storage: 120GB SSD ForceGT strong Corsair
- Power Supply: Corsair AX 1200W strong
- CPU Cooling: Corsair H100 strong compact watercooling
- Casing: Corsair Carbide 500R strong White
- Monitor: Chimei strong 24 “, 1920 × 1080
- OS: strong Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit Sp1 Ultimate
- Driver VGA: nVIDIA Forceware WHQL 301.42 strong
In all tests the RAM in JagatReview, we turn off all power saving features of the CPU and OS to keep our results to remain constant. Processor Core i7-3930K strong is set at 4000MHz speed strong , so our results are not too different from the results of a normal user running the system in a state of default.
Most voltage we use the test voltage is AUTO or default, except:
- Vcore (CPU Voltage): set to 1.250V strong with Loadline Calibration Enabled
- VccIO (CPU I / O Voltage): AUTO / XMP or set to 1.15V strong – 1.25V if necessary
- VccSA (SA CPU Voltage): AUTO / XMP or set to a strong 1.2-1.25V if necessary
- vDIMM (DRAM Voltage): If there is XMP, we used vDIMM of XMP, if not then we will use the voltage indicated on the product specifications.
We also include strong performance RAM DDR3-1333 CL9-9-1T 4 9-24 x2GB (single rank) Quad Channel as baseline in platform performance X79 for comparison, since most PC users using the configuration on the state default .
strong XMP (Xtreme Memory Profile)
past, users had to manually set their RAM, RAM ranging from working frequency, latency (timing), as well as voltage. However, with the growing technology, the hardware manufacturers to make the process of setting it becomes easier to introduce technology XMP (Xtreme Memory Profile). By using the platform and that support XMP memory, users can run their memory speed, timings and voltage specified by the manufacturer only load XMP in BIOS motherboards used.
Corsair Dominator Platinum coming to our lab have XMP Rating on strong DDR3-2133 MHz , with 9-11-10-30 timings strong , 2T . Timing complete when XMP loaded you can see below ( note: both CPU-Z and AIDA64 one detects tRAS of XMP, the BIOS we got to 30, but in CPUZ / AIDA we got 31. Timing others like BIOS )
2133MHz with a CAS Latency 9 can be fairly fast, but the Dominator Platinum rating can only be achieved with strong vDIMM 1.5V only.
memory devices involves quite a lot of variables, ranging from the frequency, timing, compatibility, and so forth. Therefore, the focus of all testing performed by JagatReview memory is strong ‘out-of-the-box performance and stability’ . So the scope of the testing we’ve done memory limited to:
- performance of the XMP memory is included producers on a variety of applications (synthetic and real-life)
- memory when XMP profile loaded
Testing overclockability on every memory module that we receive can be regarded as a BONUS, not major test, because the same memory modules sold as a package and can even have the overclockability and / or profile timing different Yanga. Keep in mind also that the strong overclockability of a memory module is not only determined by the capabilities of its memory modules only , but also depends on:
- Quality IMC (Integrated memory controller) available to a specific CPU, which sometimes differ
- a memory for a particular type of Motherboard
Thus, the level of overclocking that we can be on any of our test may be different from what you get, because the variables that we mentioned above.
