Introduction

Product on Review: Corsair Vengeance
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Corsair
Street Price: £151.76 (At time of review)



Last week we saw the announcement for the new Vengeance DDR3 series. A new DDR3 memory range from Corsair that will equip gamers and enthusiasts alike. Today I will be taking a look at the larger 12GB kit (3 x 4GB) that provides support for triple channel Intel X58 systems.

With a stock frequency of 1600MHz and rated timings of 9-9-9-24 @ 1.5v this Vengeance kit hopes to provide us with great stock performance as well as decent headroom for those wanting to extend performance via overclocking. The Vengeance series is available in single, dual and triple channel as well as an assortment of sizes from 4GB right through to 16GB. With regards to pricing the new Vengeance will sit between the XMS and Dominator memory kits.



Corsair's Take:
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory modules are designed with overclockers in mind. Vengeance DIMMs are built using RAM specially selected for their high-performance potential. Aluminium heat spreaders help dissipate heat, and provide the aggressive look that you want in your gaming rig. As a bonus, the attractive low price of Vengeance memory will also leave lots of room in your system build budget.
