I've been thinking about purchasing some Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666mhz...the c10 variety. Does anyone know if 3770ks should be able to handle those kinds of memory speeds?

Yes the 3770K can handle those speeds if you have a motherboard that can too, but why on earth would you waste money on Dom Plats? They're hugely expensive, way more expensive than they should be and they will give you very little performance improvement.

And yes the 3770k can handle those speeds on the memory.

If you want fast memory, try the G.Skill Trident X 2400 kit. For $69, its cheaper than allot of 2133 for 8GB. I have some and I'm completely satisfied.

Corsair has a long history of not running at rated timings / voltage in my experience. Also, it's a complete ripoff for the platinum series.

Actually depends on the chip more than the mobo. MSI, Asrock, Asus, Gigabyte at least most of each (not sure about lowest end) have options up to those speeds, depends more if the memory itself & cpu IMC can do it.
Most 3770k are good for IMC, I've had 1 out of 9 that could not do over 2600Mhz, the only 3570k I tried could not do over 2200Mhz.
