Corsair Vengeance 12GB DDR3 Memory Kit review

With expensive memory you often some extras. As always Corsair offers a life-time warranty with these memory modules, you can't beat that. Look at the heat spreaders, it's fairly unusual to see a design like that. One thing is a sure fact, you either like or hate the aesthetics. The green PCB bothers me a little though. Styling wise that's a missed opportunity. The sticker with the yellow Vengeance branding .. meeh could have been left out as far as I am concerned.
The heatspreader is designed to enhance heat dissipation allowing (in theory) better tweaks and overclocks. As a result this is not a low profile memory. The idea is that heat is moved away from the actual memory chips and this increases potential overclocking and stability.
Very simple stuff, but the details of the modules can be read from a small sticker. You can spot the SKU code and generic info on there. Also primary info like latencies are displayed. It's good to see voltages being reported on there as well. A lot of memory producers lack this info, yet it is so important. Missing on the sticker is the command rate though.
Last but not least, the actual packaging, so you know what to look for in the stores.
We review a new chassis from Corsair, it Obsidian 350D. It is the mini-me version of the new Obsidian 900D chassis. Not mid, not full, mini and this intended for small form factor PCs. Now the product might be tagged as mini, the details and features however are grand. Armed with a price much better then the 900D this might be the product a lot of you are on the lookout for.
Corsair Voyager Air review
We review the Voyager Air, it is a portable storage unit allows you to connect it towards USB 3.0 and Ethernet, but it also includes WIFI support and it actually comes on a 100 GB HDD model as well. This great looking device might just be what the doctor to move or stream your content from.
Corsair Obsidian 900D review
We test and review the all new Corsair Obsidian 900D chassis. Not, mid, not full heck, this is a super tower. Probably one of the biggest products you have seen to date. It is highly configurable has hidden options in every corner and a craftsmanship that will stun you.
Corsair H90 review
A test and review the Corsair H90 liquid cooler. The Hydro Series H90 is Corsairs first 140mm Liquid Cooling solution that is bound to draw some impressive heat from your processor.
