The models and their corresponding prices are listed below:

Corsair Triple Channel DDR3 RAM
Model # Specification Price
TR3X6G1866C9DF 6GB, 1866MHz DOMINATOR Kit with Airflow Fan $475
TR3X3G1866C9DF 3GB, 1866MHz DOMINATOR Kit with Airflow Fan $250
TR3X6G1600C8D 6GB, 1600MHz DOMINATOR Kit $300
TR3X3G1600C8D 3GB, 1600MHz DOMINATOR Kit $175
TR3X6G1333C9 6GB, 1333MHz Kit $230
TR3X3G1333C9 3GB, 1333MHz Kit $120

The Dominator kits have more advanced, finned heatsinks, while the others have standard heat spreaders. The 1866MHz models provide higher clock speeds than any of the OCZ triple-channel kits, but Corsair does not state whether or not the kits maintain the 1.65V limit above which Core i7 processors may be damaged.

Corsair’s DDR3-1333 kits are immediately available.  The DDR3-1600 models will be soon released also. The DDR3-1866 kits, however, will be available shortly before the Core i7 official release, which is scheduled for November 17th.
