Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz 32GB DDR4 Review


Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200MHz 32GB DDR4 Testing:

Memory is often hard to separate from one kit to another in gaming, but when it comes to number crunching and computing, some memory provides an extra boost in comparison. To see just what kind of performance this kit has to offer, I will be running the modules through a series of benches to see just how they compare. SInce I only have a pair of DDR4 modules, these will represent the comparison field. Each kit will be tested at its native native speeds, as well as overclocked. Overclocking, of course, will be dependent on exactly how far the testing rig will allow, but I'll push it as far as I can. The testing set up used for these benchmarks is listed below, with the XMP profile applied to show where the modules settle in at after training. The CPU will be run with default XMP settings with the CPU running at the XMP 2.0 set 4.0GHz for the basleine testing. The memory will then be overclocked while keeping the clock speed as close to 4.0GHz as possible for OC testing. All current updates and patches are installed for Windows 10 64-bit and the latest driver for the NVIDIA GTX 1080 Founders Edition will be used.


Testing Setup: Intel Socket 2011 v-3

  • Processors: Intel Core i7 6950X
  • CPU Cooling: Corsair H115i

  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 1080 Founders Edition
  • Power Supply: Corsair RM 1000X
  • Hard Drive: Corsair Force GT 240GB SATA 3
  • Optical Drive: Lite-On Blu-Ray
  • Case: Corsair Obsidian 650D
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit


Comparison Modules:

  • G.Skill Ripjaws 4 2800MHz 16-16-16-36 8GB
  • Patriot Viper 4 3000MHz 16GB
  • Corsair Dominator 64GB 16-18-18-36 3200MHz

CPU-Z: This application visually shows the settings that we have chosen in the BIOS. Items shown in this application include CPU speed and bus settings, motherboard manufacturer, BIOS revisions, memory timings, and SPD chip information.




Normally, Corsair's modules have some pretty serious overclocking head room. Unfortunately, I was not able to push any more clock speed out of the modules than a 62MHz boost by bumping the bclock to 102MHz using the XMP set clock speed on the CPU. Voltage nor loosening the timings seem to really free up any more head room on this set. Kind of disappointing from an overclocking perspective, but the only thing guaranteed is the rated speed and timings.



Maximum Memory Speed:

The maximum memory speed for each set of overclocked modules is indicative of how well the modules ran on this test system. As such, your results may differ in either a positive or negative way based on the capabilities of your hardware. In other words, your mileage may vary!
