Recently Corsair announced their Vengeance range of memory including the slightly more appealing Low Profile version allowed for high performance and low clerance, which a lot of users may be faced with due to their hefty coolers needed mainly for overclocking.

Aimed at a specialist market as well as users with space restricted systems, the vengeance series hav quickly been welcomed into the memory world.

    Either black, or maybe blue, no?Anyway, great review, and great memory, that certainly is a good kit for a good price

    It would've been "super duper bang for the back" if Corsair decided to use a simpler packaging. Even a dollar cheaper will really help.

    nice to see the lower profiles in the design ..better compatibility with heatsinks etc & would actually prefer a dark neutral grey ..thanks for the review

  5. Sviat A says:

    Strangely, but I have just seen different voltage (1.35V instead of 1.5V)for such a kit. Does it really make big difference for power consumption?

    I would like to buy something like this. But also I consider 1866MHz option, which should be faster.
    have found several variants – or or strangely, the price in a European store is higher (although, delivery is not included on Newegg and Amazon). In any case, the price seems okay.

    I suppose, any motherboard (even an old one) should easily handle that voltage?
