Corsair has a long standing tradition of releasing some of the best memory out on the market. Their Dominator line is no exception. But how does one make the best, better? Well that’s easy, you make an extended cooling fin kit for them.
With the advent of DDR3 Tri-Channel memory RAM modules are going to inevitably run hotter. Corsair has addressed this issue in the past when they released a new and improved Tri-Channel fan module to aid in cooling. Featuring twin 60mm fans and the width to fit over 6 full slots, it seemed like a reasonable solution. It didn’t stop there however.
In an attempt to fulfil even the needs of the benchmarker / overclocker Corsair brought forth their Hydro H30 water block, designed exclusively for the latest Dominator Line. And if even that did not prove to be enough, they have a sub-ambient version too. But where does that leave us now?
There will be cases out there where water cooling or TEC cooling our RAM is not an option. Either from Lack of Space, or lack of a proper loop. There will be situations as well where adding the RAM Fan Module is not practical or feasible due in part to an over sized CPU cooler.
Corsair has finally brought forth one more solution to make their Dominator Line quite possibly the most versatile memory kit to date. Their Dominator and Dominator GT modules can now have an extended fin kit mounted to them. It effectively increases the surface area in which to dissipate heat from. And naturally the GT upgrade kit has the same bold red found on its predecessor. In the long evolution of Corsair RAM this latest feature completes the circle of cooling solutions available on one of the best known RAM types.
“The extended cooling fins for Dominator and Dominator GT memory kits have been designed with an aggressive, high-performance look for enthusiasts and gamers who want to upgrade their memory to stand out from the crowd,” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair. “By choosing Corsair Dominator or Dominator GT, you not only get the highest-performing memory in the world, but also the most distinctive and customizable memory too.”
The extended cooling fins are engineered using high-grade aluminum that is extruded and machined, and have more than double the surface area of the standard Dominator and Dominator GT fins. In addition, the racing-inspired red Dominator GT fins are coated with a phase –change thermally conductive polymer that expels air pockets in the micropores of the heatsink surface, optimizing overall thermal resistance. - Source:Corsair
The Corsair Extended Fin Kit is available right now exlcusilvely at Corsairs Online Store priced at $19.99 for black fins and $24.99 for the red.
