Product Description

Great looking, great overclocking memory at a great price

Like the legendary Dominator, enthusiast-grade Vengeance DRAM is designed for stability, stringently factory-tested, and backed by our limited lifetime warranty. And, we know that great looks are as important as great performance. This is why Vengeance modules come in a variety of colors to match your components and let you build your system just the way you want it.

Available in colors to match your components
Superior overclockability through careful screening

Overclocking your components can be a fun and rewarding way of pushing your gaming PC to its performance limits. Vengeance can help make this happen. Before each module is assembled, the DRAM chips are individually screened not only to ensure reliable meeting performance specifications, but to allow generous headroom for stable overclocking.

Optimized for Compatibility with the Latest CPUs and Motherboards

Vengeance memory is designed specifically for the latest CPUs. Vengeance modules are available in 1.65, 1.5V, and 1.35V configurations for maximum compatibility with all Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, as well as the 2nd generation Intel Core processor family. With dual channel, triple channel, and quad channel kits, there's a Vengeance configuration that's perfect for your motherboard.

XMP Memory Profile for simple, safe overclocking

Vengeance memory supports the Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) standard, and each module is individually factory-programmed with an XMP profile indicating supported timing, frequency and voltages. Just enable XMP on your compatible motherboard and you'll automatically get optimized memory overclocking without having to deal with multiple BIOS settings. Of course, if you're an experienced overclocker — or an aspiring one — you can adjust the settings to push for even higher performance.

World-famous reliability and performance

There's a reason why world-champion overclockers, extreme gaming enthusiasts and high-end system builders all trust Corsair for high-performance memory that they can install with confidence and pride. Whether you're breaking your own records or you're simply building a dream gaming rig, you can count on Corsair memory.

Aluminum heatspreaders help dissipate heat and give Vengeance modules an aggressive look.
The Corsair Advantage

With a long history of building enthusiast-grade memory and components, we've earned a reputation for quality, compatibility, and performance. Need help? We're available by phone call, email or web forum.

Works like a charm, and very easy to install.

Note that this particular motherboard may detect them as being 1333 Mhz but you can go into the BIOS and manually set them to 1600 Mhz which works just fine.

I mean, really, RAM is RAM, there's not much I can say about it.

These cards work great for gaming and daily PC use. After going through the comments, I was shocked with how many people should not be building systems. I mean all these complaints about the cards being 1333mhz and not 1600mhz. These cards are 1600Mhz cards, but you people need to adjust the DRAM settings in the BIOS! Set the timing to 9-9-9-24, the speed to 1600Mhz, and the voltage to 1.5v and ignore whatever computer program that you are using that is telling you that these are 1333Mhz sticks.

I used this RAM on a build with an AsRock p67p4 Extreme and an ASUS Sabertooth P67 motherboard. On both builds, the RAM worked very well and ran with stability at 1866Mhz with the stock 1.5v. I did not test any higher frequency as the performance gains were minimal(even from 1600 to 1866). This is nice RAM however beware on some motherboards the fins can be obstructed by some of the larger CPU coolers- yet most will work perfectly.

If you have any questions I might be able to answer for you, leave a comment and I will respond ASAP.

Bought these for a computer build I did for my husband. The machine booted up just fine, I installed Windows, some anti-virus software, and Microsoft Office. Everything looked like it was working well. He was anxious to start loading some games. Then came the first Blue Screen of Death. After 4 hours of operation, repeated IRQL errors were cropping up, resulting in Windows continuing to crash.

I downloaded Memtest86+ and attempted to run a few passes. The program got less than half way through the first test and there were 699 errors already. Sooo, that answered the question on what was causing the BSOD's. I had one or more bad RAM sticks.

On the positive side, Amazon replaced the sticks quickly and Memtest86+ ran a complete pass on them with 0 errors before I even bothered installing the OS. The computer is now humming along nicely. (I installed in this motherboard - Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 AMD CrossFireX/NVIDIA SLI W/ HDMI,DVI,DispayPort Dual UEFI BIOS ATX Motherboard GA-Z77X-UD3H with this CPU - Intel Core i7-2600K Quad-Core Processor 3.4 Ghz 8 MB Cache LGA 1155 - BX80623I72600K).

Husband is loving it so far. Fast and can handle most anything he'll put on it. I was not happy to have received defective sticks, but at least they've been replaced and are now functional. We will see if this remains the case. I will update if these should fail as well.

UPDATE: The sticks that I used in my husband's machine are still delivering speed and reliability after 7 weeks. I just built another computer for our daughter yesterday and used another 8 GB of Corsair Vengeance RAM. Installed in another Gigabyte mobo (GA Z77X UD5H)with an Intel Core I7-2700k processor. Memtest86+ found no errors and so far, no BSODs. Corsair is regaining my confidence.

Works flawlessly on a ASUS P8P67 B3 Sandy Bridge mobo. Given some memory problems w/ DIMMS that are rated higher than 1.5v, these installed and worked as expected. What more can you ask for? Sandy Bridge mobos are picky when it comes to RAM - these work and are recommended by Corsair.

I put this ram in the blue slots of my p8p67 pro motherboard. Works great!!! I had to adjust the frequency from 1333 to 1600. I also changed the voltage to 1.5. My old pc had 2 gigs corsair ddr2 800. Going from 2 gigs to 8 gigs ddr3 was huge. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, I highly recommend this memory.

Installed these in a new build used primarily for gaming and they work as they should. Windows Experience Index score with a mild overclock is 7.8 for RAM, 7.5 for entire system because my old hd 4870's drag it down. I love Amazon and I hate Amazon. Love Amazon cause they have excellent customer service, Amazonprime is the deal of the century and they have just about everything at great prices! I also hate Amazon because I buy too much stuff. ugh

I was building a home theater / gaming PC and this memory was recommended to me. It's rated to be faster than what I'd originally looked at, and at a better price. I'm running an Windows 7 Home x64 system, i7 processor, Radeon 6770 card, and at this point these have served me well and I may, eventually, get another set. 8GB is plenty for me to watch movies, play Skyrim with mods, compile my code projects, and run a Minecraft server, all on my 1080p TV. Anyone who really needs more probably knows more than me about the technicals, but for a regular gamer this is fine and probably overkill for a plain home theater. Fast reads, lots of space.

I re-built my computer in November of 2011, and this was one of the "pricier" components that I purchased [i.e., in it's category, it's not all that cheap.] This means the computer is now 2 years and 3 months old.

The build originally included

Intel 2500K
Gigabyte Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 2133 LGA 1155 Motherboard
Corsair Vengeance (2 x 4) GB Ram
Thermaltake 500W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply
EVGA GeForce GTS 250

and has been more recently updated with
650 Watt corsair PSU
Sapphire Radeon HD 7870

Out of all these parts, the only one that has gone out aside from this Corsair Ram was the very cheap Thermaltake 500W PSU. All of the elements are still being used (even the old graphics card). I am really surprised that such (relatively) expensive memory went out after a relatively short period of time. When my computer started crashing I had thought it would be the cheap gigabyte mobo, but it wasn't, it was this ram. I've never had a set of memory go out in previous builds -- so I was surprised, and disappointed.

I'm not sure if this is an random occurrence or not for this item, but I thought I should weigh in with this negative review.
