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.

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.

What can I really say, it's ram!?
T. Borgstadt
BIOS shows 1333Mhz; just manually change Bios settings to "1600 MHz" and done.
John Alexander
Easy to install and haven't had any problems with it and don't expect to.

Purchased this kit to compliment a new build using a Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5 m/b, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition CPU. Common to this and many other m/b's bios, the ram is initially recognized in bios as 1333MHz rather than this rams rated 1600MHz. Going into BIOS, 2 clicks of the mouse rectified that. For those only wanting or just starting out with 8GB of ram this kit is ideal. Two 4gb sticks using only 2 memory slots is more efficient than spreading the 8gb's over the four slots. My most immediate concern was compatibility with my M/B for it was not one listed as being tested for compatibility. I'm happy to report it is fully compatible with no issues. It thouroughly passed memtest, and my system has been running fast and stable since the day my build was born, about 2weeks now. O/S boot up is fast, opening applications is fast and multitasking is not a problem, but then I am running a 6 core CPU as well. I rather like the blue colored heatsinks, matches my board quite nicely but that's only cosmetically important, what counts is my PC's processing speed and stabilty and that earns this ram 5 stars, I couldn't be more pleased. I don't ever see the need to add another kit to make it 16gb but if that day should arise I would not hesitate to make this purchase once again. I highly recommend it. Fast, stable, fair price,the best warranty, no need to say more. Other than go ahead, buy it.

Update: 8/17/2011 I've added another one of these kits to my system to max out my board at 16gb. As expected, the additional ram did not notably increase my system performance. My reasoning behind adding the extra ram was because I could and I got a gold box deal on it. That being said, my initial review still stands in every aspect. Corsair ram rocks.

no problems. To be honest, I bought these because the internet told me to. I do everything the internet tells me to.

I just got this kit today to replace a 2GB single-channel module, and I am very pleased. Boot-up of Windows 7 home Premium 64-bit is much faster on my machine now. The two 4GB modules were easy to remove from the box, and the plastic cases simply snapped open. No box cutter required. I was initially concerned that the new modules wouldn't fit under the power cable for my Micro-ATX motherboard because of the added height of the aluminum heat-dispersing shields. However, they will apparently fit anywhere a normal DDR3 desktop module will fit. Just as a test after booting up, I began rendering a quick 720p video, creating a home movie DVD, playing music, playing a DVD, playing two separate 720p videos, playing a random Youtube video, and browsing pictures on my hard drive all simultaneously. I was limited only when after a few minutes my Athlon II X4 2.9GHz Quad-core reached 100% load and 125 degrees F, causing the fan to run loudly. I decided to close some things at that point. Memory usage in Task Manager never got above 50% though, so I can't imagine ever needing more than 8GB of RAM for daily home use. Most programs have a barely noticeable load time now. Smaller programs that used to require a few seconds of load time now run instantly, and all programs run smoother and faster than before. If you have the money, your system supports 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and you want to improve your computer's performance, you can't go wrong buying this RAM kit.

I bought the 8gb of the corsair vengeance blue for a gaming desktop that I built a few days ago(see specs below). The ram works great and can handle literally anything I can throw at it. Plus on the upside, they look amazing and are well built. The nice thing is that the come in 3 colors, black, blue, and red so you can mach it to what ever motherboard you bought.

Seems to be typical high quality Corsair offering. Reports seem to indicate that they have decent headroom for overclocking, although I just run them at stock settings. The heatsinks are tall, and they may conflict with big CPU coolers (depends on layout of MB). They also run at 1.5V, while some other 1600 RAM run at 1.65V.

RAM prices fluctuate like a commodity. The industry goes through cycles of shortages/glut, and right now, we are in the oversupply stage, hence the low, low prices. I can't see them going significantly lower than this (less than 50 bones for the 8GB kit as I write this). I picked up extra at these prices for future builds.

Price-wise, $50 for 8GB is fantastic. Especially for the 1600MHz bandwidth.

Corsair, historically, has been a reputable brand name, thanks to providing quality components. But even under the best of times, problems can ensue.

Both kits arrived, with no atypical behavior suggesting a defective module is installed.

Why I recommend to buy two 8GB kits, even if there was a net increase of price: These modules are sold in kits, if one module is bad then the entire kit must be returned. The replacement kit could have a defective module as well. With two 8GB kits, if one module is bad, you still have a working computer while you wait for the exchange to arrive. If one module in each kit is bad, then you're still SOL as these sets are sold as 'matched pairs' to ensure reliability. Mixing RAM modules from various sets COULD induce performance problems. so when installing the RAM, also make sure to take the first package and put each module in slots 0 and 2 on the system board, with the other package put into slots 1 and 3.)
