Corsair Announces Full Line of Quad Channel DRAM Kits

The Dominator and Vengeance kits utilize Intel's Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) 1.3 for easy performance tuning. The Dominator utilizes its standard DHX+ heatsink, while the Vengeance uses an aluminum heat spreader. The Dominator is available in frequencies from 1600 MHz to 2400 MHz, with capacities of 8 GB (2 GB x4), 16GB (4 GB x4), and 32 GB (8 GB x4). The Vengeance is available in frequencies of 1600 MHz and 1866 MHz, with capacities of 8 GB (2 GB x4), 16 GB (4 GB x4), and 32 GB (8 GB x4). The Dominator and Vengeance units are rated and tested at voltage of 1.5V, with two Vengeance kits tested down to 1.35V.

    Forget SB-E CPUs, I can't even afford quad-channel RAM!

    eklipz33032gb? im at 4gb =Right now anything more than 4 is virtually useless for gaming atleast, and I think thats what these guys are aiming for. Anything more than that can only work in 64bit clients, and those are not too common, yet.

    Would be nice for a RAM disk but i don't think it is cost effective with SSD laying around. I guess if you use Firefox with 10 tabs open it will full up 32 GB (I keed). Only useful for video editing program and Virtual Machines, I guess (never used one of those really).

    Also useful for CFD meshing! My 24GB isn't enough sometimes.

    Do want.

    I'm comfortable with 8gb's as I need it to run FF, Outlook, a few messenger like apps, VS, and whatever game im playing... But anymore than that is total waste IMO. Heck, I can get away with 4gigs and have for quite a while. The only other use I can find is multiboxing WoW, and running my own instances lol...

    More heatspreaders at voltages low enough that they don't actually do anything except make it hard to get in past the CPU heatsink.

    I have 16 GB in both my computers, and use it. A decent OS will cache on-disk content to RAM and make use of as much as you give it.

    Funny, sandy bridge isn't really bottle necked by memory at all.

    Also, whats the difference between buying 4 stick of identical ram and a 'quad channel overpriced' kit?

    64 bit is pretty common now, and all new systems that I've seen come with Windows 7 64 bit. I've been running a 64 bit OS since Vista.
