CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMY8GX3M2A2400C11R
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Ok so I mentioned earlier that I couldn't get the speed advertised on the box. But I fixed this last month and forgot to post an update.
I did manage to post at 2400 and it runs pretty smooth.
I believe the real issue wasn't the ram but most likely the MSI G45 gaming board not letting me run at the clock I wanted.

Cons: Now there is still a few cons which I can't identify.
I did get a few blue screen on multiple occasion, sometime under load (gaming mostly) and sometime while idling and not even using the comp at all.
I would just take a break and come back to blue screen.
Thankfully this hasn't happened in the last months or so but it was a weekly thing for the first month I was running at 2400mhz.
Mobo or ram issue, you tell me.

Thermaltake Frio Overclocking-Ready Intel Core i7 (6-core ready) & i5 Compatible Five 8mm Heatpipes Dual 120mm Fans Intel & AMD Universal CPU Cooler CLP0564 - Retail

Pros: It works really well in my Corsair C70 case with just two fans other than the CPU cooler ones.
The stock fans are great, quiet, keep my 4770K between 32/36C idling. Goes up to about 45/49 while gaming. I've never seen it go above 50 so far.

Cons: It will block one of your ram slot on an MSI Z87-G45.
I read the previous reviews so I was aware this could've happened. Also I don't think this can be helped by running low profile ram because the actual cooler is a bit low.
I do feel a bit of vibration coming from it but nothing alarming in my opinion.

Other Thoughts: Besides the fact that it will most likely take over one of your ram slot, it's also a huge cooler. On my Corsair C70 case, it fits just right but it left me just 1/4" between its top and the lexan of my case.
Overall I am really pleased with the performance of this cooler with my setup.

All good!

Pros: Works as advretised

Cons: It got a bit frustrating at first but it's all good now.

Other Thoughts: I finally got it to post at 2400.
For some reason, my MSI Z87-G45 mobo would not let me set it at 2400 but after a bit of tweaking I'm running them at the right speed.
Awesome so far.
