Corsair's DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition series comes in 32GB kits, either four 8GB DIMMs or a pair of 16GB DIMMs, in your choice of Chrome or Blackout finishes.  All kits are DDR4-3200MHz but with the 10-layer PCB and DHX heatsinks Corsair feels that reaching 3600MHz will be trivial and higher frequencies possible for talented tweakers.  They will be available directly from Corsair, $330 for the quad-channel kit and $300 for the dual channel.

Designed and crafted to meticulous standards, DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition is CORSAIR’s most elite memory ever, combining the classic and iconic DOMINATOR PLATINUM design with two new stunning finishes. DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition Chrome’s ultra-reflective chrome surface starts with anodized aluminum that is precision polished to a mirror finish and trimmed with sandblasted matte edging for an unprecedented display of beauty and power. In contrast, the ultra-sleek DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition Blackout is engineered from black anodized aluminum, finished with polished black edging, and hand sorted to maintain a flawless finish. Each kit is individually numbered using high precision laser engraving, guaranteeing exclusivity.

Fully compatible with the latest Intel® X99 and 100 series motherboards, each module is individually hand screened for added quality assurance and overclocking headroom. For discerning users looking to push their system to the limit and reach peak performance, DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition’s custom 10-layer PCB provides superior signaling for greater overclocking potential, allowing every DOMINATOR PLATINUM Special Edition module to be safely overclocked to at least 3,600MHz. What’s more, with CORSAIR’s patented DHX cooling technology, the aluminum heat-spreader is built right into the PCB, ensuring rapid heat dissipation and lower temperatures.

“DOMINATOR PLATINUM SE modules are meticulously crafted with painstaking attention to detail, manufactured in limited edition quantities of 500, and individually numbered.” Said Andy Paul, CORSAIR Founder and CEO. “These rather special and rare products will be enjoyed by an exclusive group of enthusiasts”

Currently the equivalent dominators are $230 at the same speed, but worse CL at 16. GSkill has the Trident Z at $205 with the same CL, but better timings. So essentially, the aesthetic of this version of Dominator comes at a $70-100 price premium... Not worth it all, but I'm sure people will still buy it.

They did a good job on their landing page though. Looks very apple-esque.

I'm a fucking retarded peasant faggot. I've already talked to distro and got on the list for as many as I can get which will be limited to only $20k-$30K worth. This is the best fucking ram ever made you dumb fuck. Totally worth it. Not every one is a poor, stupid, lazy nerd like me. These are sick af. Anyway, my Amazon store will sell out if them instantly everytime we relist. And we'll mark them way up too.

Wow, is someone a bit protective of their business model of screwing over bling-obsessed geeks? Jeez. You do know that someone disliking something - even to the degree of posting about its stupidity - doesn't actually hurt your bottom line, right?

Actually, if you could tell us what your store is, that would be helpful in avoiding psychos like you.

Not exactly perfect headline. Chinpokomon? You're aware Mr Hellstrom that it's South Park creators joke, with Chinpo = penis in Japanese... LOL

Excactly; how is that not perfect?

I think they're overcomplicating this. Cover the RAM in an insulating polymer or other coating, then cover the whole PCB, chips and all, in chrome. Ultimate tech bling. They should do this to motherboards too. Everything. Chrome it all! I want chrome cables, chrome connectors, chrome coolers, chrome fans, chrome cases, chrome RGB LEDs, chrome monitors, chrome mice and keyboards and EVERYTHING MUST BE CHROME!

Okay, I might have gone a bit overboard there. But I think Corsair has too.
