When you think of Corsair Memory you think stability, quality, customer service, and if you hang out in enthusiast forums...the bearded support staff. Having been an industry leader in the production of memory for almost 15 years now, Corsair is a well established and trusted brand in enthusiast circles. Not only do they offer some of the best performing memory available, Corsair backs it up with a visible and friendly support staff that are only an internet forum away. We have looked at other Corsair products in the past here at Hardware Canucks, but this is our first dance with the darling of the Corsair ball, and what a dance it promises to be.

Top Gear's Richard Hammond was about to take a jet powered car off-roading, the world was about to lose one of the true patrons of its natural habitat in Steve Irwan, and Corsair dropped the bomb on what was to be the biggest step forward in memory cooling technology since the heat spreader was introduced. It was the summer of 2006 and despite being almost two years ago now, it seems like yesterday when we first laid eyes on the beautiful black heat sinks that have become the industry standard for superior memory...the Corsair Dominator line was born.

Corsair needed a flagship and they found it in the Dominator brand. "The DOMINATOR family of modules represents the very best of Corsairís engineering." as described by Corsair leaves nothing to the imagination. Dominator memory is the best that Corsair puts out and ranks among the highest rated modules industry wide. We have the absolute pleasure of looking at a high frequency/low timing DDR3 kit of Corsair Dominator memory today in the TWIN3X2048-1800C7DF. Rated for operation at DDR3-1800 with tight timings of 7-7-7-20, our NVIDIA 790i based motherboard has been drooling ever since we got confirmation they were on their way. So without further delay, let the games begin.
