The Dominator series has been Corsair's long running enthusiast brand memory kits. Corsair has taken this series to the next level with the release of its Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory. The new design adds a customizable light bar to the list of exclusive features, which includes patented DHX cooling, Corsair Link support, and hand-screened DRAM ICs to help with its overclocking ability.
Dominator Platinum is available in dual and quad-channel kits with 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB capacities, and frequencies up to 2800MHz. Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory is designed to fully exploit the performance potential of the latest Intel and AMD platforms, including the "Ivy Bridge" 3rd generation Intel Core processor family. All Dominator Platinum kits support Intel's latest XMP 1.3 profiles for easy performance tuning.
Its new light bar contains a user-swappable light pipe which lets enthusiasts tailor the lighting color to match their PC lighting and components. Dominator Platinum kits are supplied with a white light pipe, and additional light pipes will be available to purchase in the future.
In addition, the Dominator Platinum memory supports Corsair Link connectivity. This unique Dominator memory feature allows end-users to monitor DRAM temperature and other parametric data. Dominator Platinum memory kits support Corsair AirFlow fans and AirFlow Pro dynamic temperature and activity displays to provide the low temperatures required for stable and reliable overclocks.

The last thing I need is someone knowing what I have under the hood and jacking my shit...
The article was kind of misleading.
It said stuff about fans when it should have been talking about airflow over the heatsinks...
Just my 2 cents...
Real World Performance difference? No.
Price Difference? Yes.
Worth it? No.
Fast RAM is very beneficial in some very prevalent applications, although we all probably know that not everything benefits from faster RAM and in those circumstances, fast RAM would not be worth it. However, that doesn't have an impact on the fact that many people would benefit from very fast RAM for certain usage.
It would be nice to see others using 30nm for the high end stuff.
"MOM. It's got HEATSINKS. BUY IT!"
Still, if you can afford the price, and must have the latest and greatest, then the specs look good.
Llano, Trinity, and other integrated GPUs would like to share a word with you. Give them enough bandwidth, and not only they'll be the king of the integrated GPUs, but also rival low-mid range dedicated ones as well.
On a second thought, if one could afford such fast RAM sticks, couldn't they have used the money for a dedicated GPU?...
