Very good ram, quality. But you are paying more for the name and looks mostly. There are other alternatives at a much lower price.

All the ones under $200 would fit the bill:

They are mostly 1.65v, but that isn't an issue. 1.65v is safe for all set ups.

^^^ This.

Excellent RAM, and if you like the looks and features, then by all means it should run great. Be advised that those really tall RAM heat sinks don't play well with a lot of aftermarket CPU heat sinks. Make sure you have full open clearance above your RAM slots before committing to a purchase.

Price has always been high on Corsair, and the Dominator Platinum is the top binned DRAM product the company offers and the price reflects that. Only the best chips go on those modules, and you're going to pay a top premium for them. Corsair used to say that only the top 0.1% of DRAM qualified for their top DIMMS, I don't know if that's still the case.

It's made of first-rate 1333 MHz brand name chips, meaning worst case it's excellent 1333 MHz memory.

Dominator is better than Corsair's Vengeance line, which is made from lower quality chips.
