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.
Designed for Enthusiasts. Backed by Corsair.

Top Customer Reviews
I installed four of these memory modules in my new computer. They are working just fine. I ran a (self-repeating) memory test for over 24 hours prior to loading the operating system.
Before you order memory modules, you should review the webpage and "User Guide" for your motherboard. I recently built a new computer using the ASUS Maximus V FORMULA LGA 1155 Intel Z77 Extended ATX DDR3 2800 PCIe 3.0 HDMI SupremeFX IV Audio Motherboard. The ASUS website (quite conveniently) provides a Qualified Vendor Lists (QVL) of compatible memory for this motherboard (although it may not be up-to-date for 8GB modules). Your motherboard's vendor may have a similar list.
If you purchased a ready-built computer, then look on the manufacturer's website to verify that you are purchasing the correct memory. For example, if you purchased your computer from the biggest computer maker, then log-on to your account, enter the Service Tag number for your computer, and then find the memory requirements. Or, you could just call and ask.
My computer's motherboard requires (1.5 volt) DDR3 dual in-line memory modules (DIMMs), installed in "matched sets" for "dual channel" function. My motherboard's "User Guide" recommends installing DIMMs from the same vendor, with the same CAS latency, and of the same version or date code (D/C). Because of this recommendations, and because these memory modules were ridiculously inexpensive when I bought them, I went ahead and installed the maximum memory of four 8 GB DIMMs (32 GB). You can buy this memory with one pair of DIMMs or two pairs of DIMMs: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ16GX3M2A1600C10) or Corsair Vengeance 32GB (4x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10).
If you are interested in over-clocking memory, then you might want to research (1.5 volt) DDR3 DIMMs with higher clock ratings (i.e., 1866 MHz, 2000 MHz, 2133 MHz, and 2400 MHz). Naturally, I wanted the 2400 MHz memory; but I decided to try the much cheaper 1600 MHz memory first.
Please note: If you are only installing two DIMMS, you may need to install them in only two specific slots on the mother board (i.e., you can't just install them in any two slots). Check the "User Guide" for your motherboard to ensure that you are inserting the DIMMs in the correct slots. Of course, if you fill all slots with "matching" DIMMs, this will not be a concern.
No matter how much physical memory you install, your copy of the Windows operating system may limit how much memory your computer can use. The 32 bit versions of Windows can only address a maximum of 4 GB of memory, with only (about) 3.5 GB of that usable.
Windows 64 bit memory limits:
- Windows 8 Professional: 512 GB
- Windows 8: 128 GB
- Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate: 192 GB
- Windows Vista Ultimate: 128 GB
- Windows 7 or Windows Vista Home Premium: 16 GB
- Windows 7 or Windows Vista Home Basic: 8 GB
Lastly, I recommend that you run a memory test on your newly-installed memory. I used Memtest86+ (it's free). Extract the image (iso) file from the ZIP file, and then create a bootable CD by burning disc from image (do NOT copy the iso file to CD, burn disc from image). I ran this memory test prior to loading the operating system.

Never have I had a failed RAM in my life. First one is this, from Corsair. Sure they offer a lifetime warranty. Sure I can RMA. But what would it take? Weeks without a working computer? And you pay for shipping? Majority of people will just buy a new RAM because they need it ASAP, and never bother with RMA.
I don't know what it is, but I have always had bad luck with Corsair products. Everything is mediocre at a high price point - probably because of their marketing, with media like Linus and friends. (I have nothing against LinusTechTips, but one thing I would not believe them is when they tell me how great Corsair is, because he is paid to do so). I have returned false advertised keyboard, mice gathering dust, a peeling mouse pad, cpu cooler messing with BIOS, case that won't accommodate non-corsair fans. Perhaps the only product that I have worth praising is their speaker (SP2500).
This is my first rant review. Only because I have had enough of this brand. Never again.
I over clocked this ram to 998Mhz duel channel giving me practically 2,000Mhz. This stuff at stock is CAS 10. The OC brought it to CAS 12. The latency is not noticeable and usually only snobs care about this difference. I get a lower Minimum frame rate on games BUT, i get a higher average frame rate and a higher maximum frame rate. However, most people think over clocking DDR3 1600 to 1866 is the most practical. I wont disagree but I just wanted to put it out there that this ram is rocken 2,000MHz in duel cannel right now. My CPU Bus is 213mhz. My CPU ratio is 21.5 and I'm using an XMP profile in the bios. Looks like all the profile did was raise the dram voltage to 1.49v. Its not even 1.5v guys! :)
I suppose you could tighten the timings on this crazy over clock and I have not. I prefer stability over a possible CAS 11. You wont notice the difference. There is no noticeable difference in a real world scenario between CAS 10 and 12 or even CAS 9-12. You will find small TINY changes in synthetic benchmarks but who cares. 2,000MHz MAN!
