All initial Vengeance memory modules have a low 1.5V supply voltage for maximum compatibility and energy efficiency.

As a bonus, the attractive low price of Vengeance memory will also leave lots of room in your system build budget.

Vengeance DDR3 memory is available in single module, and two or three module kits, with sizes ranging from 4GB all the way up to 16GB, making it easy for you to match the DIMM population requirements of your motherboard.

4 out of 5 eggsEh, its ok

Pros: The ram works well. No DOA, clock speed and latency are great. It benchmarked well through all my test.

Cons: I docked an egg on this one. The cooler is black but the ram pcb is green. On first boot the ram was 1333 at 9-9-9-27 I had to manually adjust it to the advertised speeds. The cooler also was not equal to Gskill in the same price range. Although no of this hurt the performance of the ram. They are things I didn't like.

Other Thoughts: This was my first Corsair ram purchase, I own many of their other products. I was not as impressed with this as I was with my other Corsair products.

5 out of 5 eggsWicked

Pros: These sticks are great! They perform very well, look amazing (especially when placed in a Sabertooth Z87), and are easy to configure.

Cons: No cons at all.

Other Thoughts: I had to configure the them to run at 1600 in the bios. Very well priced.

5 out of 5 eggsGood & fast Service

Pros: The product itself is good , rock solid.
I would like to mention that new eggs service is very fast and reliable. I ordered couple of stuff at other retailers and they made a mess out of my orders.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: - The heat-spreader is kind of tall so make sure before ordering that it wont interrupt with your CPU cooler such as nf d14.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Well With Pro Tools 11

Pros: I'm currently using only 8 GB of this RAM and it works well with Pro Tools 11 on Windows 7 computer. I mention Pro Tools because when I had 32 GB of Crucial Balistix (4 x 8 GB cards) the same computer it had very bizarre and freakish crashes when Pro Tools was running but all other programs worked fine. Not so with this Corsair Vengeance RAM, and only 8 GB of it makes Pro Tools sing very nicely. Highly recommended for Pro Tools users.

Cons: No cons, just make sure you don't have your BIOS set for AUTO ram set up. Go in and manually set the latency.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat memory

Pros: Great stable memory. Ran them for 2 years in a 4.5 overclocked 2500k on an ASrock P67 Extreme 4 board.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A little expensive these days, considering you can snag some 2 8 gig sticks for not a whole lot more. But you get what you pay for here.

5 out of 5 eggsCorsair Vengeance(black module)

Pros: Price/Quality. Again.....best memory modules on the planet.

Cons: None....what part of none would you not understand? Corsair doesn't need any cons......they make the best memory on the planet.....PERIOD.

Other Thoughts: Paired 2 red modules @ CAS 8 & 2 black modules @ CAS 8 on an MSI 970A-G46, WD 5000HHTZ VelociRaptor (10k rpm), Sapphire Radeon HD7850(2Gb-256 bit), AMD AthlonII X3 450(3.4GHz tri-core), none of which is overclocked, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit OS. On a rate chart which 7.9 is considered tops, Windows Experience rates the rig 7.3 Not too shabby for a "non-SSD" rig. It's Corsair for me Podnah. I highly recommend the memory modules produced by Corsair to anyone. You get your money's worth here.
