I really like corsair but I feel like they have an identity crisis with their vengeance and platinum line. Their platinum line is meant for the OCers and extreme this and that. Custom PCB boards the whole 9 yards. Then they release 3Ghz vengeance

I never liked the vengeance series, and it seems weird these aren't Dominators.

I have heard the imc on haswell will be outstanding, so perhaps there will be some crazy platinum's to come in the next few months.

I believe they are Vengeance because of the huge amount of binning needed to get 3GHz memory. They just don't make enough Dominator memory for it to be either practical or cost effective.

Also, look how expensive this dope is for 8 Gigs-
