Corsair Dominator platinum RGB 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 3600MHz CAS 16 DRAM

Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 Memory redefines premium DDR4 memory, with timeless iconic design, superior craftsmanship and aluminum construction that’s built to last. Powered by tightly-screened high-frequency memory chips, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB ensures high-frequency performance with generous room for overclocking thanks to a custom PCB cooled by Corsair's patented DHX cooling technology. Use CORSAIR iCUE software to customize virtually limitless lighting effects from 12 ultra-bright, individually addressable CAPELLIX RGB LEDs, and stay informed with real-time frequency and temperature monitoring. Complete with wide compatibility with the latest motherboards, Intel® XMP 2.0 support for simple setup, and a limited lifetime warranty, this is DDR4 memory in a class of its own.


Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 Memory continues to the iconic and refined design that perfectly complements the world’s best PCs. To achieve the best possible look and feel, each part of the module is built using different manufacturing techniques:

  •  Side-plates - forged aluminum with anodization
  • Top bar - die-casted zinc alloy with microarc oxidation (MAO)
  • Fins - stamped aluminum
  • Lightbar - precision engineered lightbar with perfect diffusion level
Underneath the lightbar reside 12 individually-addressable CORSAIR CAPELLIX RGB LEDs that are not only brighter and smaller than those found in previous-generation RGB memory, but also more power efficient and with better longevity than the regular LEDs. The newly designed lightbar with light isolation gaps minimizes light dilution among the light boxes, further improving color accuracy per lightbox. With their purpose-built and eye-catching looks, DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB modules easily adjust to match the design themes of the world’s best PC builds.

While offering top-notch look and feel, each DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB module is also designed to provide best-in-class performance. From hand-sorted, tightly-screened memory chips to a custom performance 10-layer PCB, the only goal is to deliver the highest possible performance with generous overclocking headroom and solid stability. DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB modules continue to use CORSAIR patented Dual-Channel DHX Cooling Technology, a heat-spreader embedded directly into the PCB that pull heat away from the modules, allowing DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB to stay cool even under extreme stress.

Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 RAM can be monitored and controlled with the Corsair iCUE software utility. Upon installation of Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4, iCUE will display a dedicated device tile for DOMINATOR PLATINUM RGB in the main window.

All DIMM modules are equipped with the new style heat-spreader that holds with Thermal Conductive Technology and the RGB LEDs. The memory chips have contact with the heat sink in order to ensure that both memory and the board operate at the same temperature and can thus provide the best performance. Once installed in the BIOS if supported, select the XMP profile for the memory and after a reboot you are good to go -- really it's that simple. If you do not have an XMP profile option in your BIOS, set the timings manually and set DIMM voltage a little higher to 1.35v opposed to an SPD 2133 MHZ config with 1.2 Volts. But head on over to the next page where we'll startup a product photo-shoot after which this article will dive into a benchmark session. Hey, we know you like it like it.
