Corsair recently expanded their series of RAM kits to offer something between the Vengeance and the Dominator series. This new series is known as the Vengeance Pro series and it has kits ranging from 1600MHz all the way up to 2400MHz but with plans to potentially go higher than that in future. Today we are looking at a top-of-the-range kit from Corsair, and more specifically their Vengeance Pro DDR3 2400MHz kit with a pair of 8GB modules. These modules are geared towards the extreme user and are designed for overclocking – for use with Intel’s Ivy Bridge and Haswell platforms as these are the only current platforms with the IMC to be able to run 2400MHz RAM without compatibility issues. Of course when Ivy Bridge-E hits the market this should also be able to run these kits. Sandy Bridge and Sandy Bridge-E may be able to run these but only chips with exceptional IMCs (integrated memory controllers).
The kit we have here today is formed from a pair of 8GB modules running at 2400MHz with 10-12-12-31-2T and 1.65 volts. They support Intel XMP 1.3 and come in four different colours – Gold, Blue, Red and Silver. We of course have the red version and end users will be pleased to know these kits come with a limited lifetime warranty.
The packaging is pretty plain and simple and indicates the colour of the kit, the size, the configuration and along the top of the box is the speed demarcations.
The back tells you that these DRAM modules are geared for overclocking on Intel’s Ivy Bridge and Haswell platforms.
Included is a limited lifetime warranty statement as well as the RAM kit itself.
