The Corsair Vengeance 8GB kit performed as expected in the testing we subjected it to. It was right in line with the other 1600 Mhz kits and performed well against the comparably overclocked kits. The 8 GBs would come in handy when additional RAM is required for things like CAD, photo editing and video editing where your computer utilizes a larger chunk of available RAM. You may even notice a difference in your normal day-to-day computer operations with a larger quantity of accessible RAM due to the fact that Windows will be able to pre-load more into your RAM making even normal tasks run a little faster.
The thin aluminum heat-sinks did a good job of keeping the RAM running cool, even when overclocked. You do have to take into consideration the height of this RAM if you're running a larger air CPU cooler since the heat spreaders do extend almost an inch above the PCB on these sticks.
Overall a nice set of RAM from Corsair at a decent price.
- Thin aluminum heat-spreaders
- Rated speed runs at 1.5v
- Decent overclocking ability
- RoHS compliant
- Lifetime Warranty
- XMP ready
