Corsair is one of the most well-known names in the computer industry. Founded as Corsair Microsystems in 1994, Corsair originally developed Level 2 cache modules for OEMs. After Intel incorporated the L2 cache in the processor with the release of its Pentium Pro processor family, Corsair changed its focus to DRAM modules, primarily in the server market. Now many years later, memory has continued to evolve to what we have today, DDR4. Corsair has released a full line of the new DDR4 kits. Today we will be looking at their Vengeance LPX 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4 DRAM 2666MHz C15 memory kit in red.
G.SKILL is one of the move respected names in the computer industry. Established in 1989 by enthusiasts, they have become one the leading memory module manufacturers. They also have one the most extensive range of computer memory products available. They have 12 different series of desktop memory alone. The Ripjaws X series offers speeds from 1333MHz all the way up to an impressive 2400Mhz.
Kingston Technology launched the HyperX T1 memory series back in 2008. Soon afterwards, the HyperX T1 became legendary among the enthusiast community and for good reason. HyperX T1 modules featured massive blue heat spreaders that dissipated heat away from the memory chips, a necessity for overclocking. After a four year production run, Kingston to go back to the drawing board and design a new heat spreader with better thermal characteristics. So in 2012, the HyperX Predator was born.
Corsair has just released their newest ram kits called the Vengeance Pro. The new series is designed for the third and fourth generation Intel users that want the most when it comes to overclocking would certainly love the Corsair Vengeance Pro. This isn't Corsair's first memory series to have the name 'Vengeance' in them.Some time ago, they launched the standard Vengeance series and with that there are some variations within the series like the Extreme (3000MHz) and the Low Profile modules.
The first model would be the new HyperX Beast, which we will be checking out today, and other is the HyperX 10TH anniversary edition. The HyperX Beast seems to be the new top dog from Kingston as it is sporting a new heat sink design. The Beast stays even cooler with it stepping up the ante with a super high frequency of 2400MHZ.
