Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB Review

Overclocking & Lighting
RGB Lighting
Lighting, thanks to the brand new Capelix RGB LEDs is obviously a key selling point for this RAM kit, as it is on most RAM kits in 2019, so feast your eyes on the lighting clip below.


Another couple of key features are the large heat spreaders and the attractively tight timings at high frequencies, but Corsair claim they’ve left further headroom for users willing to push things a little bit further. While we don’t consider ourselves overclocking Gods, we’re certainly not shy of having a go at overclocking.

In our MSI X470 Gaming M7 AC motherboard, we found that our kit was almost impossible to overclock, and to maintain fairness across all of our reviews, we can’t really start picking and choosing better motherboards for overclocking tests. We could manage slight tweaks here and there of roughly 100MHz on the frequency, but even that required a slight boost in the voltage to 1.4v from 1.35v.

Perhaps we’ve missed something or we’re not approaching this from the correct angle, or is it possible that the already incredibly tight timings of CAS 14 @ 3200MHz are about the limit this kit is capable of?

Anyway, regardless of the reason, we feel Corsair’s claims of leaving overclocking headroom fall slightly short of the truth.
