It seems like only yesterday that we posted our Corsair Dominator 2x3GB PC3-12800 memory review but it was over three weeks ago now. Boy how things can change in such a short period of time. The morning that we posted that review, the ability to buy a DDR3-1866 kit of memory that was specified to run at 7-8-7 timings with 1.65v was a pipe dream. Many manufacturers had been talking about these new super kits but availability was scarce at best. On the much anticipated morning of February 4th, 2009, Corsair officially launched not only the Corsair Dominator-GT series, but also the new Corsair Online Store. For the first time ever, Corsair will be selling directly from their own internet store. The Dominator-GT series couldn't have been a better launch product.

With the advent of their online store, Corsair has removed all middle men between them and their customers. Corsair has always pushed customer service and selling directly to the end-user only enhances that level of service. We talked about their support in the last Dominator review and it has to be mentioned again. Corsair employs a staff of web surfing pirates that pop in and out of all the enthusiast forums answering questions and helping out customers. Corsair also provides a support forum of their own; TheRamGuy.com. After all, you can have the best product in the world and it means nothing without the proper support, and the Dominator-GT series is one of the best DDR3 memory offerings available backed by legendary support.

Today we will be looking at the Dominator-GT 3x2GB PC3-15000 7-8-7-20 triple channel kit of memory rated for operation at a Core i7 friendly 1.65v. The PC3-15000 rating puts this memory kits operating frequency at a blistering 933MHz or the equivalent to DDR3-1866. Consider this kit the runt of the Dominator-GT series with two other 6GB kits being offered that run at DDR3-2000 with timings of 7-8-7 and 8-8-8 respectively. Make no mistake though, despite the triple channel kit we are looking at today being the lowest binned from the Dominator-GT series, it still packs quite a punch. We will discuss the process in which these three different kits are binned in the Specifications section, but first, let's feast our eyes on some photos of these very attractive modules.
