Corsair is introducing a new special edition DDR4 memory kit called the Dominator Platinum Special Edition CONTRAST. The new individually numbed kits feature a monochrome white a black design with white LEDs. The modules come in 32GB kits comprised of either four 8GB DIMMs or two 16GB DIMMs.

Corsair’s fancy black and pearlescent white special edition memory features 10-layer PCBs, carefully screened Samsung ICs, and DHX (dual-path heat exchange) cooling. The top of the modules hold white LEDs (no RGB here!) to add a bit of glow to your system.

Out of the box, the kits come clocked at 2133 MHz with CAS latencies of 15-15-15-36 and running at 1.2 volts. There is a XMP 2.0 profile that, when activated in the BIOS, bumps things up to 3466 MHz and 16-18-18-36 timings though the speed increase comes at the cost of more power draw at 1.35V.

The Special Edition Contrast memory would look good in most any build, but especially one that eschews RGB for white lights and a simple color scheme. The refined Dominator Platinum memory comes at a premium price though with the 2x16 GB kit having a MSRP of $439.99 and the 4x8 GB kit hitting $479.99. The four DIMM kit is available now from Corsair and the two DIMM kit is coming soon.

Definitely on the expensive side, but it sure looks nice! What are your thoughts?

An Ahoge is not a Cowlick, It's just not! An Ahoge is more like a wild hair/s!

Bob's big boy hamburger mascot has a cowlick while Himeko of Pani Poni Dash has an Ahoge.

Now all this Bling as a selling pont only appeals to the most slacked jawed of the yokels but why do the DIMMs have to be so damned tall is it for heat dissipation resons and what if you want a big cooler on the CPU. Oh the vanity with some of these systems and that DRAM is still too costly.

Hey you wortless squid how about you go and bugger off and earn the good investors of Amalgamated Bodybags some good retern on their investment. All that stale air that you have been breathing that's reeks of bilge oil and body oder has ruined your senses you un-decompressed slab of Government Issue pickle-puss!

It makes no sense to you because you are some stick up the rear Joe with no amount of tact, you wortless meatsack that's only useful as cannon food! Now get to swabbing your stinky pits you hermetically sealed monobrow!

Why is the 2x16GB kit cheaper than the 4x8GB? Isn't this backwards? I haven't bought RAM in a really long time, so what changed to make this reverse?

More PCBs for one thing along with the general money grab DRAM companies are enjoying.
