Conclusion

these modules are most at home in exotic, themed builds...

Corsair augments its best-in-class Platinum RGB memory by offering the same superb build quality and excellent RGB lighting in a white heatspreader that fits in better with some builds.

Contrasted with gold screws and lightbar, this set arguably looks better than the all-black, Capellix-bearing Platinum RGB. We'd got so far as to say it's the most attractive memory we've come across.

Designed as a premium solution first and foremost, value is of relatively little concern, as the pricing of our 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4-3600 kit, at £155, is consistent with a 32GB pack without any RGB or build goodness.

Offering a wide range of frequencies when overclocked on a 10th Gen Core system, these modules are most at home in exotic, themed builds where colour coordination, appearance and lighting are at least as important as performance.

Bottom line: beautifully built and looking suitably premium in the right PC, Dominator Platinum RGB White makes other modules look ordinary.

They look beautiful, however I would never buy RAM based on looks as I don't bother to have window in my case.

My problem is a lot of the high end stuff does compete on appearance and RGB. I resent paying the extra for the R&D and the cost of the spangles.

I really don't want my PC to look like a vagazzle (?spelling?) inside.
Are RAM prices on the way back up or is this just weirdly terrible value?

Seeing 32GB of Corsair's own Vengance Pro RGB 3200CL16 for £155 on scan and thinking it's the latter.
Got the one's before these with the single white LED. RGB is just too much now. But clocking the latencies on these are damn good.
RGB is worth a tenner, twenty quid at absolute maximum. In the case of RAM, which is a 10cm strip of lights, trying to squeeze out this much of a premium is daft. But then premium priced products that are priced for the sake of it tend to draw their own crowd.
