As Corsair has gradually become one of the most popular brands in PSUs and PC cases, people seem to forget they started as a memory company. And the testament to this fact is the continued presence of Dominator RAM in the worlds best overclocking competitions. Corsair looks to continue this with the new Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory at Computex 2012.

The new Dominator Platinum will have several options beyond the normal density and speed options. The first you will notice is the new DHX cooling with customizable light bar. This light bar creates a downwash of color on your motherboard and can be changed to match the color of the rest of your case’s LED lights. Initially this will be available in white only, but I am sure this will quickly change.

The other great feature here is the Corsair Link support. This is a direct software link to the memory to provide dynamic temperature activity in real time. Combined with other Corsair products, you chould use Corsair Link to monitor, control, and automatically tune your system for best performance possible.

The new Dominator Platinums will be a great new product for overclockers and enthusiast alike. It should provide the customization and performance necessary to fit with anyone systems. Did I mention the Dominator Platinum RAM will come in kits from 8 GB to 64 GB (two, four, and eight DIMM sets) at up to 2800 MHz. If I did not, then you should read that sentence again. Who even wants just 4 GB of memory anymore?
