It looks like $379.99 from the Corsair Store - https://shop.corsair.com/store/item_view.aspx?id=833269

A Dominator 1866MHz 6GB memory kit retails for $280 from Newegg, so the GT carries a $100 higher price tag... Both have the new Airflow fan and all.

Hi folks!

I was wondering... Is it possible to install 2x6GB of these Corsairs? I'm very interested in buying them, but 6GB is not enough for me :supz: ;)

All best

Yup. I even paired these sticks with a set of weak G.Skill DDR3-1600 2x3GB sticks and they worked fine but I couldn't run really tight timings.

not sure how credible these guys are since i only know of this site but thought this would be appropriate to post here since the model number reviewed was similar

My sticks are still alive and kicking, more or less. 1 stick is a little temperamental but it still functions correctly if I keep it out of the 3rd memory slot :supz:

I killed 2 sticks yesterday, they no longer POST at 1333C9. I was benching SuperPi 16M for a contest and the system was really unstable so I shutdown and pulled everything apart. A few hours later I tested all the parts and poof, 2 sticks no longer work. :rolleyes:
