Sandy Bridge-E and its quad channel memory is nearly upon us. Corsair is gearing up with a new 32 GB DDR3 memory kit. The Dominator GT memory kit is comprised of four 8 GB DDR3 DIMMs (Dual In-Line Memory Module) that the company claims are from strenuously tested and highly binned chips.  Specifically, the DDR3 kit has a part number of CMT32GX3M4X1866C9.

The new modules feature Corsair’s removable red and black DHX heatsinks and a RAM fan. The quad channel kit is rated to run at 2400 Mhz with CAS latencies of 9-10-9-27, and all while running at a mere 1.5 volts. Further, the memory is also rated to run with CAS latencies of 9-9-9-24 at 1300 Mhz; however, having the higher latencies and corresponding higher speed of 2400 Mhz will result in better overall performance versus the lower latency settings.

The 32 GB quad channel memory kit is available now with an MSRP of $999.99 USD. How much RAM do you currently use in your systems?

I use 4 GB in x64 bit OSes and 3.25 for x32.

What if I need more? The solution:
60GB solid state (285@MBS) or 500GB hybrid drive (speed untested). ;-)

I will accept a 32GB quad memory setup if it's donated by one of our great PCPer sponsors!

For that msrp, I would expect something more along the lines of 2100/2200MHz 9-9-9-24 timing, and registered ECC.
Since reseller price will probably be around $1200
