Introduction

Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB (4 x 8 GB) 3200 MHz DDR4 review
Vengeance from the RGB Master Race?

Today we are reviewing the fresh series of Corsair Vengeance memory. It is the Pro RGB version that arrived in a kit of 4x 8GB 3200 MHz DDR4 modules. Make no mistake as there are faster options in the line-up, but this frequency hits a sweet spot (relative in price/performance). It sits roughly in the middle of the range, as the maximum frequency for the series is a whopping 4000 MHz. If that kit can reach that number, maybe this kit (our review kit) also has some extra juice to be squeezed out of it? Of course, you can always stay at the safe and advertised frequency + latencies using the Intel XMP 2.0 memory profile. But we'll take it up a notch today.

Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB, as the name suggests, has RGB lighting and that feature is nowadays very common in RAM. It has been introduced to the market by G.Skill and their TridentZ RGB series. We have tested Corsair’s first RGB ram at guru3d over a year ago. In the meantime, many other vendors provided their releases, including Team Group, Geil and Ballistix or Patriot. Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB looks extraordinary nice, and should easily attract customers (yep, you guys!), the PC gamers. As for Vengeance Pro RGB, even modules as fast as 4000 MHz are available, and Corsair claims that up to 4600 MHz is within reach (we do wonder what latencies that would require). That’s however really is extreme performance. According to Corsair, each module is built using carefully screened ICs for extended overclocking potential.

Vengeance Pro RGB is available with its heatspreaders in two colors; black and a white edition. We will review the first variant. The RGB lighting system used in the reviewed kit consists of 10 bright LEDs, and that should provide a very clear and crisp effect. The effects are customizable through Corsair’s iCUE software, but it’s also possible to use:

Who would like a bit of HDR inside the actual pc ;)
 

The reviewed kit is aiming at the high-end segment of the market, we received a whopping 32 GB DRAM kit, which certainly is not a standard capacity. It’s also worth mentioning that the warranty for these DIMMs is a lifetime. The memory is optimized for latest Intel and yes, AMD DDR4 Ryzen and Threadripper motherboards and processors. For our test, Corsair supplied a quad (4 x 8GB) black DDR4 kit rated at 3200 MHz with CL16 (nominal for this frequency), which is ideal for X99/X299 systems (quad-channel). Vengeance RGB Pro offer starts at 2666 MHz CL16 and ends at 4000 MHz CL19. Next page, please.
