Corsair Vengence Pro Series DDR3-1866MHz Memory Review (2 x 8GB)

Corsair Vengeance Pro Series DDR3-1866MHz Memory Review (2x8GB) Review

In our roundup last week we took a look at a range of high end Z87 boards which were ideal to build a performance based Haswell system on. Of course as well as our board and CPU we need a great kit of memory to help us maximise performance. Corsair aim to do exactly that with their new Vengeance Pro modules and today we have a 16GB kit on our test bench.

Packaging and Bundle

Corsair Vengeance Pro packaging

Corsair package their memory in a nice compact box with a good clear image of the memory on the front. Inside the sticks are encased in protective plastic with a warranty leaflet explaining how the lifetime plan works.

Corsair Vengeance Pro modules

Corsair have a wide range of configurations available in the Vengeance Pro range and that goes for capacities ranging from 8-32GB and colours with red, blue and gold available in addition to the silver we have here on the top of the aluminium heat spreader. Our modules are 2x 8GB set to 1866MHz (up to 2400MHz available) with timings of 9-10-9-27-2T at 1.5v. It is also good to see the use of black PCB and we always appreciate stickers on the modules which note timing information to make configuration easy for those who prefer manual settings to XMP which these modules also support.
