Corsair has been a leader in the design and manufacture of high-speed modules since 1994. Their focus has always been on supporting the special demands of mission-critical servers and high-end workstations, as well as the performance demands of extreme gamers.

As a pioneer in high-speed module design, Corsair is a trusted supplier to many computer manufacturers. In high-density memory solutions, Corsair has always been one of the first suppliers to achieve advanced qualifications on Intel, Tyan and SuperMicro server platforms. They also work closely with other major server platform manufacturers to release product that is 100% compatible with their latest server products.

Corsair has expanded beyond memory modules to offer performance water cooling units under the Corsair COOL brand. In addition, they offer a line of Flash memory. Their range of SD and CF cards offer a lifetime of reliable performance for popular photo and MP3s devices, cell phones and PDAs.

Flagship memory products are part of the XMS (Xtreme Memory Speed) family, which is designed for the unique demands of the serious enthusiast community. The XMS memory line has become the world's most awarded memory.  But things have changed with the new high performance product the Dominators.

Today we are looking at a DDR2 8500 kit from the new range of Dominator kits, what is so different about the Dominator series as that Corsair went out and totally redesigned the heat spreader (more on this later) they also sent over one of their memory fan coolers as well to help keep things cool. What I will be doing today is testing this kit across two platforms, the first is 975x and the second is the new Nvidia 680i chipset. Before we get to that stage though let us take a look at the product itself
