Final Thoughts and Conclusion
To say I like the Corsair Vengeance LED is an understatement, I love them. It is almost as if they built them just for me. I have not been able to find anything I do not really like about them. The LED lighting effect is spot on for my taste and the subtle heatspreader design is as well. At 50mm tall, the modules will more than likely interfere with most aftermarket air coolers, so it is best to keep that in mind before purchasing either product.
Of course there is more to memory than just fancy cosmetics. The Vengeance LED does not falter here either. Performance was right about where we expected it to be for a 3200MHz kit, often trading blows with the other 3200MHz kits we have tested. Overclocking was very good for 8GB memory modules and performance rightfully increasing as they topped out at 3466MHz.
The black heat spreaders are look aggressive and small Vengeance logos are not overbearing. I think Vengeance LED in red would be a good match to almost any system and/or with red accents. ASRock's Fatal1ty and ASUS' ROG series of motherboards come readily to mind. The Vengeance LED in white is a bit more universal in appeal and was a great match to the MSI Krait motherboard pictured above. The specification label applied to each module allows for easy identification and is a welcome addition.
At the time of testing, I was able to find this particular kit for $99.99 at Newegg. This is a bit on the high side, but the price is very comparable to other LED DDR4 kits on the market. The Vengeance LED has a good combination of price, performance, and cosmetics.
- Subtle Yet Noticeable Lighting
