The Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 memory kits are designed to push the limits and performance of an Intel or AMD setup, including the latest 3rd Generation Intel Core processor “Ivy Bridge”. It also supports the latest Intel XMP 1.3 profiles for easy performance tuning/overclocking.
The light bar (the silver thing above the heat spreader) is a new feature. This lets PC Enthusiasts “tailor” the downwash lighting effect that gives your system an impressive impression but subtle look. Additional light bars allow you to match your system’s color scheme. The additional light bars are available separately, beginning September 2012.

Like its predecessors, the Platinum series supports the Corsair AirFlow fans and AirFlow Pro dynamic temperature and activity displays.
