Corsair Launches Memory Kit Designed for Overclocking Contests

Paul Lilly

Well what do you know, memory makers haven't forgotten about the RAM market after all. In the midst of all the hoopla surrounding SSDs, Corsair has tapped into its roots and released a high-end memory kit -- Dominator GTX6 DDR3 -- with significant overclocking potential.

The new Dominator GTX6 DDR3 sticks come rated at 2625MHz individually, the fastest memory yet from Corsair's camp. Impressive as that is, there's still room for hardcore overclockers to coax even more out of these sticks. During a round of in-house testing, Corsair says it managed to push the memory to 2976MHz using a CPU cooled with liquid nitrogen on a Gigabyte P55A-UD5 motherboard.

"What can I say, except these modules are fast. Really fast," stated John Beekley, Vice President of Technical Marketing at Corsair. "While not really designed for day to day use, these modules make superb weapons for your overclocking arsenal."

No word yet on price or availability.
