Product Overview Great Looking, Great Overclocking Memory at a Great Price
Corsair Vengeance DDR3 memory modules are designed with overclockers in mind. Vengeance DIMMs are built using RAM specially selected for their high-performance potential. Aluminum heat spreaders help dissipate heat, and provide the aggressive look that you want in your gaming rig. As a bonus, the attractive low price of Vengeance memory will also leave lots of room in your system build budget.

Optimized for Compatibility with the Latest CPUs and Motherboards
Vengeance memory is designed specifically for the latest CPUs. Vengeance modules run at 1.5V for maximum compatibility with all Intel® Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors, as well as the 2nd generation Intel processor family. Vengeance DDR3 memory is available in single modules, and two or three module kits, making it easy for you to match the DIMM population requirements of your motherboard.

Next-Generation Density for the Ultimate Power User
Most Vengeance DIMMs are built with two gigabit RAM ICs. These extra-dense memory chips allow you to have 8GB of memory using only two DIMMs, or to populate your triple channel system with up to an insanely large 24GB of system memory for extreme multitasking performance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from corsair vengence red i give this ram the average becase of 2 things the main is it is wrongly avertised as 1600 HRz when it atualy runs at defult 1333 HRz witch brings me to the second reson unless u go into the bios enable the xmp witch means overclocking the ram and if u are not confident in playing in ya bios then this ram IS NOT FOR YOU but the looks of the ram are outstanding the pictures on the scan website do it no justise thay look mint (i will say at the stock speed of 1333 MHz thay run just fine and u carnt tell the differnce between the 1600 and the 1333 at 1600 thay have slight problems thay not stable the MHz are up and down all the time ) other than that yea good ram

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought as a gift Bought as a gift for my son. I know nothing about computers internal workings, but he is very happy and has used this product before and recommends the Scan website. I think the insurance is well worth purchasing as last time he bent the pins and had to return for a replacement - free under the insurance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Quick All Working too As RAM goes it works. My PC is performing well, very well. So all good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good purchase Good, standard RAM. One thing to note is that the heat spreaders are very tall indeed, so that is something to take in to account when thinking about CPU coolers. Price has gone up from the £40(!) I bought my first set at, out of Scan's control I'm sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Performance at a great price. These RAM look great with the performance I've come to expect from Corsair. The height might make them awkward for smaller cases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent 'good value for speed' They are a good pair of RAM, solid quality and really make the computer effective, regarding the speed factor! 10/10
