Corsair have their fingers in a lot of pies of late and are making some great shakes within the pc industry, particularly that of the enthusiast. Their range of PC enclosures have proven very popular, their PSU's powerful, SSD's fast and their cooling range, well, cool! So then it would be easy for Corsair to forget their lineage for it was within the PC memory sector that Corsair gained their reputation as being a quality manufacturer building superior components for the PC enthusiast. Corsair have had to endure the console popularity and have undergone a slight transformation as they now have their own 'gaming' range - Vengeance.
Vengeance is the name they have struck upon to reek havoc among the gaming fraternity and while a full line up of gaming peripherals is about to be unleashed under the vengeance umbrella, Corsair have not forgotten their roots and have blessed a range of memory modules with the same title.
The Vengeance DDR3 memory kit we have for review today is clocked at 1866MHz with timings of 9-10-9-27 and comes via 4x4GB modules which for all intents and purposes is pretty much identical to the G.SKILL kit were reviewed here. So then, it will be interesting if the Corsair kit can bring anything new to the table. Or is it the simply same kit clothed in slightly more aggressive garb? Unless you have been living under a rock for the past decade you will already know how fantastic Corsair are, what quality products they have in their line-up and indeed the class leading support they have to back these products up so, rather than wax lyrical about how impressive Corsair have been over the years, we will jump straight into the specifications...
Vengeance is Corsair's high-performance memory line. Vengeance memory modules are built with DRAM chips specially selected for their high-performance potential. Aluminum heat spreaders help dissipate heat, and provide the aggressive look that you want in your gaming rig. And, the attractive low price will also leave lots of room in your system build budget.
