Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2400MHz 16GB Kit Review
Each and every time a new CPU chipset comes out you can bet there will be a series of other components that will also come around. Just recently, we saw the introduction of the Intel Haswell processors and the new set of chipsets that goes with it. We saw new motherboards, new list of power supplies that support all the lower voltage regulations governing the chipset and we are also seeing new memory kits to address the higher capabilities of this new technology.
One of the companies to hop in the lead when it comes to meeting the specifications of the new chipset is Corsair. If you currently own a Corsair power supply then chances are you are already covered for Haswell. But what if you are currently using Corsair memory, will it still be covered? Yes, if your memory is running at least 1333MHz or higher and in the range of low voltage up to 1.65 volts. But we know Corsair as being one of the front runners when it comes to memory and they never leave anything as is and considered average. Things are about to get better.
Corsair has just released their newest ram kits called the Vengeance Pro. The new series is designed for the third and fourth generation Intel users that want the most when it comes to overclocking would certainly love the Corsair Vengeance Pro. This isn't Corsair's first memory series to have the name 'Vengeance' in them.Some time ago, they launched the standard Vengeance series and with that there are some variations within the series like the Extreme (3000MHz) and the Low Profile modules.
The new ones will sport a new heat spreader design with a more aggressive look. Not only to allow the modules to run cool and perform well but to also look good. So, you get a little of 'show and go' with these modules. All the modules come in a back frame but topped with a colored bridge that would either be blue, red, gold or silver. The colors of the heat spreaders do not indicate anything, just a part of a color theme for those that are nitpicky about matching hardware colors.
Corsair‘s take on Vengeance Pro
Corsair Vengeance Pro Series memory modules are designed for overclocking on the latest 3rd and 4th generation Intel® Core™ platforms, with eight-layer PCBs and ICs specially selected for performance potential.
The aluminum heat spreaders provide superior temperature management and have the aggressive look you want in your gaming rig. XMP 1.3 profiles allow for automatic, reliable overclocking.
They’re available in multiple colors to let you match your Vengeance Pro memory to your system’s color scheme. As a bonus, they’re priced to deliver class-leading value, so you’ll have more room left in your system build budget.
