Dear Corsair Art,

what I thought just happend, why does Linus already have a kit?

Minute: 2:02

Propably for free. Why can't I buy them? Why do you give such limited Kits for free to Youtubers when half of the world is waiting for a handful of kits?

You just lost a customer who is buying your products for around 15 years. Could you please delete my account here?

Kind Regards,
A former customer and a bit of a fanboy

You can buy what he has now, Dominator Ram with LED windows kits.

Linus is not a customer, he's a reviewer. I'll have someone take a look at your account and delete if possible.

EDIT: What Qqu said is also true.

Do you still want your account removed?

That looks like it's either CMD16GX4M4B3400C16 or CMD16GX4M4B3200C16-ROG (the latter if the lighting's off a bit in the video).

The former came out a year ago and the latter came out last spring.

If you'd like to know what the special edition modules look like, check out this video @ 1:14:

We can't delete the account, but we can ban you if you'd like. You can let me know directly.

Yeah sorry guys I am waiting for this since June and am kinda pissed you just give away kits to youtubers/reviewers, so I have to fight for 499 kits and not 500 with the rest of the world.

Linus is an Entertainer in the first place, not a reviewer. There are far better actual review videos on youtube. What Linus does is funny, informative and good to watch. Well, nowadays half of the videos are ads... I am watching his channel because it is well done and gives you some information. Never such a channel helped me with my buying decision.

But thats not the point here. So Linus is a reviewr and he needs to review your special looking memory which only 500 people on planet earth will get? So you think people who want your special Dominators need a review to decide? I tell you what: As soon as this kits are available, they will be sold out. Minus the one Linus got and god knows who else. That is the only problem here. I don't care you give away half of your massproduced assets to I don't know who. That is your decision. But Ram kits which are limited to such a small amount? I tell you what I think, this propably went like:

Linus: Hey Guys, I saw your 1337 special looking ram, I need this!!!
Corsair guy: Yes Linus sure, you are a Youtube star, you do much "free" advertisement for us, here take this kit!
Linus: Thanks!!! *comes home and throws it into some corner of his office*

Sorry, like I said I am really mad with this procedure and don't think it is ok. I know a lot of people in germany alone who want to have one of this kits.

Qqu & Corsair Art: So show me a link please. Nothing on your page, nothing at any german retailer I checked, nothing on Newegg. I can buy the "window" thing, but not the computex kits.

Technobeard: Please look closely, this is neither of the ones you posted, this is the computex silver kit which is limited to 500:



The Kit BEFORE he shows the computex kit is one of the ones you posted.

So if he got this for review, where is the review and why does he throw it on his desk like it is 20$ ram and not a special kit the whole world is waiting for? Good advertisement I must say...

You don't need to delete this account or ban me, I'll simply stop posting and buying your stuff. Well, to be honest I propably will continue to buy your ram, as there is no better... But not this special kit anymore, I'll stay with what I have now. I thought this will be a fair race, not that some chosen people will have some already reserved for them. Yeah, thanks.

Somehow I doubt that these limited edition kits would be sent out to a reviewer. Must be camera angles altering the color of the spreader or you can simply message Linus and ask him what kit that is from.

EDIT: On second look, it says special edition ddr4 and has a laser engraved branding..... So I believe you are correct but I doubt it will count against the 500.

You can clearly see that it is the silver kit some seconds later when the camera zooms out and he throws it on the table. There is nothing in Corsairs range that has a comparable look.

Like I said I really don't care what Corsair does with their stuff, but making people wait since june for such a small limited amount of ram, then giving X kits away to "reviewers" propably even for free when many from their fanbase are waiting for this, is really not customer friendly and a f*** you in their customers face. At least thats how it feels to me. Edit: You know, it's just like when you see a special offer from your supermarket, you get there and it's already sold out, because half of the staff wanted some for themselves.

Nah thanks, I'm out...

I think you are making too much of it. While it clearly looks like a special edition ram stick, they may have sent them ones to have reviews ready at launch which means they may be available in the near future.

Why do you need reviews for such a limited one time ram kit? Espacially for one that will propably be sold out as soon as it hits the market?

Maybe I am making too much of it, yeah. But since I am waiting for monthes now, seeing one of this few kits in the hand of chosen people makes me feel mad, sorry. Do you think Linus is the only one?

Maybe I am even not making too much of it, as two Corsair employees answered astonishing fast when they tried to tell me this isn't the kit or that I could buy it, and now, as I showed more proof, are surprisingly quiet. ;)

Sorry guys, no real offense here, as I am really a long time fan of your company and products, with many bought products of which nearly none failed me. But lately I am rather disappointed in your approach. Everything you lately do is putting RGB on literally everything. It feels like Asus ROG, trying to mix Quality products with a childish touch, gaming here, gaming everywhere. I can't imagine your long time clients to want to have a disco in there working enviroment... But well, that is another story. The story with giving away very limited ram to chosen people is another, and that really disappoints me... Also how fast you seem to let long year customers go is rather... well, dunno, not good.

I just think that we need to wait for these to come out. I'm pretty sure Corsair will let us know when we can expect to ordered them or when they will be in stock to buy.

I'll still keep a look out for them as my case hasn't arrived yet and i havn't got the MSI X99 titanium which i hope to use with one of these limited Edition Silver kits :)

Yeah, maybe you should ask Linus if he'll send you his. After he reviewed it and tested if it'll still work after he threw it out off a driving car of course. ;)

Sorry xD Good luck getting one of the remaining 400-499 Kits. :P Who knows who already got some because he's a buddy of someone who knows someone etc.

I still do not believe that any kits sent to reviewers will count against the 500.... These are probably engineering samples or something. I would be interested in a black kit if they came in a 8 module set which it doesn't seem like it will, i'll just hope they release a 8x8gb LED kit :D

They have been available all day and as of this writing, only the 2x16gb blackout kit is sold out. I hope you got yours! I decided to pick up a 4x8gb blackout kit..... just hope the dam LEDs are static....
