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.
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.

I discovered that the timings and information on the Serial Presence Detect or SPD ROM Chip were not identical to my original 2x4GB kit, making it clear that each 2x4GB kit from Corsair is not guaranteed to be identical forcing customers to fork out for a 4x4GB kit from the get-go to guarantee completely identical sticks. Rather than labeling these sticks uniquely to make identification easier for customers, Corsair is shadily grouping many different sticks under the same SKU knowing that issues with compatibility can surmise.
Aside from this, I am NOT happy that this 7, nearly 8 year old kit is being sold for only 10 dollars less than it cost in 2012. Manufacturers, brands, and distributors are equally responsible for inflating the value of memory kits. The small group of primary memory manufacturers in particular are clearly exploiting their near monopoly in order to maintain high RAM prices.

Overall, it is a sexy rig in paper... and in practice. Everything has been smooth so far
didnt come to my notice that the RAM might be faulty as i used Corsair Dominator DDR2 kit for almost 4 years and never got defected, either you get them DOA like it happened once to me or they just work and keep working, this is how corsair operates.
at first, I thought its the CPU, however narrowed it down with AIDA64 until it caused BSODs asa i hit stress memory, so i grabbed memTest and stuffed in a bootable USB drive and 448 Errors asa the test runs (on 1% Test completion). So i started to just plug one stick at a time and test, one of them is badly defected.
So i've just ordered another set and gonna RMA the defective ones, ill wait and see how things will turn around and update this review.
for not being biased, i like corsair very much, they produce high quality RAM modules, but the only thing i blame corsair for is not testing their RAM very well. I just knokced 1 star so they can notice this and improve their QA before make them available for customers. but all in all RAM is gr8 and deserves 5 stars.
UPDATE: i sent an email to RMA Dept. but got delayed response, i guess their email is not monitored. However, before i got the response, i was tired of waiting and called them via Skype using the Toll Free number they have as i'm an international user, their customer support is gr8, no complaints, im ready to RMA my defected set.
Meanwhile, i have tested the new set i've recently ordered, both work gr8, no BSODs, no crashes, everything is stable now, so i'm just waiting for my replacement.
If you want to buy this RAM and got hesitant because of other reviews saying DOA and this one, dont be, just get these RAM, Corsair offers life time warranty (10 years) and with the listed price, its a steal.
As for performance, I cannot say they are any different than the Kingston HyperX they replaced, but I can say:
They run the same speed at a slightly lower voltage
They run cooler; which resulted in a more stable OC'd (OverClocked) system.
Since making the switch to Corsair vengeance, I've built 2 more systems all outfitted with Corsair RAM, all OC'd; and all are stable!
To be clear, I only OC memory by using the built-in XMP profile, but I still push my CPU and CPU/RAM bus to the brink. You need quality RAM when Overclocking your CPU (even if you have no plans to OC your memory).
Top reviews from other countries
For many people, DDR3 RAM is as good as they can go because of their motherboard, so all of the advancements in DDR4 memory are more or less irrelevant.
Perhaps the most striking thing about these memory modules is the design. You can see from our photographs that these modules look beastly next to some standard, cheap memory. That design isn’t just for looks, however. Those high surface-area metal fins help dissipate any heat that builds up whilst you’re pushing the memory to its limit.
When it comes to overclocking, these RAM modules really shine. Around the internet, some people claim in their reviews that they’ve been able to reach speeds of 2133MHz, but in my tests I only managed to overclock to 1866MHz, but that could be for any number of reasons not caused by the RAM itself. Regardless, that is still a pretty substantial overclock, especially when considering the price point of these RAM modules.
The CPU I’m running in this test (i7-2700k) is renowned for its overclock potential, and coupled with these RAM modules really makes for a machine to be loved by overclockers.
I’ve been running at this speed for nearly 9 months now, and so far have had no issues with any of the modules, with Memtest being perfectly happy with the configuration.
Whilst these modules may be small, they certainly are mighty. Corsair do of course produce higher capacity modules, but these are very competitively priced and are great for the enthusiast on a budget. Of course, maxing most modern motherboards out with these would result in an impressive 16GB of RAM, which is not to be underestimated. That’s a lot of power, whether for gaming, video editing or running intensive simulations.
RAM is a key component within your system, and Corsair manage to deliver that quality feel with these modules. We strongly reccomend using a known and respected brand such as Corsair to provide your RAM, as a faulty module from a white-label brand could leave your whole system in a mess with nowhere to turn.
All in all, this is a great buy with no obvious drawbacks. The lifetime warranty and ability to be comfortably overclocked puts these RAM modules ahead of the competition. After conducting this review of the Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 modules, we thorough recommend them.
The question is: gamming? I don't play games, what should I send back or do I have to start playing. I may not send it back, I need it, I confess I play dots and 2048. but I don't know if these dice have improved my playing speed or score. Don't take them away from me even though I'm not playing
I didn't need a full 16Gb of DDR3 memory really, as I already had 12Gb 1333Mhz already fitted, but, as I didn't want to 'mix and match' I bought the maximum my motherboard would support, this was 16Gb at 1600Mhz, that's 4 x 4Gb modules..... 2 packets of 2 units!
Due to Xmas rush no doubt, the memory did take a full week to arrive, but, it was worth the wait.
You can tell the second you open the packet, it's quality, full stop, beautiful. Very easy to fit, remember, these are matched pairs, so, install each pair (if your bought more than one pair) into same coloured slots, as, it's dual timing, i.e., DDR(x) dual data rate!
Another pointer that might be useful, when I installed mine, it was still running (at the old settings) of 1333Mhz after fitting and several re-boots, .... going into BIOS, it was easy to alter the timing to 1600Mhz I discovered, I presumed it would auto sense the new faster RAM, not the case, although, your motherboard might be different, mine is Asus M4A88TD-V EVO USB3.
There are many many cheaper types of DDR3 memory modules out there now, many with strange obsecure makers names, probably rebranded, but, if you want reliability, and quality, it's better to pay, just that little bit more and get something you know will perform and last ...........
Although these are marketed as 'gaming' RAM sticks, they don't overclock well.
Another tip for anyone buying these, is if you planning on buying a set now and then a set later on, be aware that revisions of RAM is common, and they won't be the same Rev a few months down the line. This can cause problems with overclocking, and compatibility. I bought a set, and 2 months later came back to buy some more. But the Revs had changed. My second set have double sided chip set which is better for heat. But because there different, I can push both of them as much as I could if they where the same rev.
However it is worth noting than upon delivery the RAM works at the stock 1330MHz and needs to be overclocked to the recommended 1600 setting, something that is quite misleading in the title. However I'm keeping this at 5/5 due to the quality of the RAM, it's high performance standard, ease of installation and the ease of overclocking it. Would highly recommend to anyone building a high spec PC.
