The past 24 hours have been quite good for PC enthusiasts and end users alike, Intel's launch of their LGA2011 socket and accompanying X79 chipset launched quite spectacularly. Now we have a slew of companies releasing their X79-powered gear, with it starting today with Corsair.
Corsair have announced a full line of quad-channel DRAM kits for the LGA2011 socket motherboards, with both Dominator and Vengeance. Dominator is rigorously tested for extreme-performance PCs, with every kit tightly screened as well as including Corsair's DHX+ heatsink patented technology. All Dominator quad-channel kits support Intel's latest XMP 1.3 profiles for easy performance tuning. They are available in 4 sets, 2 of 32GB and 2 in 16GB. The first 32GB kit is at 1866MHz, the second at 1600MHz. The 16GB ramps it up a bit with one kit at 2133MHz and the other at 1866MHz.
Next up Corsair have the Vengeance kits, which are great looking and great for overclocking, all at a great price. Vengeance is designed with overclockers in mind and is built specifically for performance potential. Sporting aluminum heat spreaders that dissipate heat, it also provides an aggressive look that looks awesome in gaming rigs. XMP 1.3 support is here too, and the Vengeance kits come in a much wider range of sizes and speeds.
From 32GB kits at 1866MHz, 16GB kits at 1600Mhz in various latencies and colors and 8GB in 1600MHz, too. Color choice between 16GB variants is pretty awesome, Military Green, Jet Black, Low-profile Jet Black and 8GB kits get a special Racing Red color.
