The Dominator series has handpicked memory circuits for the highest possible clock frequencies and tight timings. It offers two kits at 32 GB each, with quite good timings in relation to clock frequencies since each module weighs in at 8 GB. For overclockers the 16 GB kit is the best alternative though.
