    Cool *** Corsair DOMINATOR 2000C7GT .:. DDR3-2533 CL7 3ch 6GB .:. Details inside & more***

    Greetings!

    After introducing you guys to our new Corsair Dominator 2000C7GT last December, and then bringing entire line of Dominator GT DDR3 memory in February, Corsair Lab finally had some time to try to really push some boundaries, where no other RAM has gone before

    Today I'd like to show you the results I'm really proud of - Corsair Dominator 2000GT, unmatched, shattering DDR3-2500 CL7 barrier in triple-channel configuration!!!

    Corsair Dominator GT, TR3X6G2000C7GTF
    eVGA X58 SLI Classified
    Intel Core i7 975, 3.33GHz, D0 stepping
    Corsair P256 SSD
    Corsair HX1000


    Please note that in those experiments I will be exceeding 1.65V VDIMM voltage level. Be aware that hardware may be damaged or it's life dramatically shortened should you try anything similar you see me do here at home Results seen here are not common, and obviously cannot be approached let alone matched by any other RAM, but Corsair Dominator GT

    Let's begin the screenshot galore!

    MAX CPU-Z validation .:. DDR3-2533 CL7 triple-channel, 3x2GB


    MAX CPU-Z validation | Desktop .:. DDR3-2533 CL7 triple-channel, 3x2GB


    HyperPi 32M | SMT On .:. DDR3-2333 7-8-7-20


    HyperPi 32M | SMT Off .:. DDR3-2333 7-8-7-20


    Memtest 2.11 | Quick test .:. DDR3-2333 7-8-7-20


    I need to admit that 8 x HPi32M at this DDR3 frequency is a royal PITA!!! It's was very close few times, but I could comfortably achieve QUAD HPi32M instead...

    Got enough of CL7 craziness ?

    How about some CL6 action then, for dessert? Breathtaking, isn't it?

    Let me know what you think - give a shout to Corsair Dominator GT

    I love those sticks. I've been trying to push the limit of the regular Dominators without going over 1.65v. Been doing ok.

    BTW, what dimm voltage did you use to achieve 2533 mhz?
    Current Rig: Broke i7

    Lian Li 1200 -- Foxconn Bloodrage -- Intel i7 920 @ 3.2Ghz -- Corsair Dominator GT 6GB @ 1925Mhz -- 9800GX2 -- Corsair HX1000 PSU -- Patriot Inferno 100GB SSD -- EK350 block Swiftech 220 S-Flex's all around

    EDIT: These results just shows how good the 975 is gonna be and pair it with a higher binned elpidas like the 2K dom GTs and sky is your limit, when you go sub-zero cooling.

    I don't care how much cherry picked the ram and the cpu are, that is just extreme

    i'm sure that a good memory controller has to do a lot with it as well

    i wouldnt say that 920 wont be able to do this though

    if you got a CL7 kit gathering dust send it here i'll show ya

    "Extremely" cherry-picked, so I'm not that impressed for that sake..

    What are the odds of cherry-picking such hardware? 10%? 1%?

    I'm actually with you on that one, that was just breathtaking, seriously ...

    Michal great work man, these rams are plain sick !

    I've seen 12GB of the 2000 CL8 ones hitting 1000MHz 7-8-7-20 (not fully stable) with a regular 965, no golden cpu or sth I've seen 6GB of the previous ones hitting 1080MHz+ CL7 fairly easy. Both CL7 and CL8 kits of Dominator GTs are excellent products It's just that ... well, 2000 CL7 are better

    yup, already saw some of the benchmarks because some of these results were posted in the news section as WR ddr3.

    i'm assuming that these are only cherry picked from the top of the top? not even half the retail kits can get near this, or is it a new GT model/binning?

    Corsair will never accept the warranty on this with the voltage those chips were suffering, benchus you are in trouble
    I bet we are talking 2.0v+ here, and they probably needed to peel of the sticks from the motherboard at the end of this session.

    Amazing SSSSSSSCP (right dinos ?) sticks you managed to assemble there

    Can I ask you for such a cherry-picked kit on your online store?
