About the Product
CORSAIR built its reputation on performance memory that shines in the most demanding computing situations: extreme gaming and high-transaction processing environments. But not all computers are put to such extreme usage. So we brought the same reliability, testing and CORSAIR quality to a line of memory designed to support standard computing situations such as popular office applications. Now it’s one of our most popular memory lines
VENGEANCE LPX memory is designed for high-performance overclocking. The heatspreader is made of pure aluminum for faster heat dissipation, and the eight-layer PCB helps manage heat and provides superior overclocking headroom.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Corsair Value Select 16 GB (1 x 16 GB) DDR4 2133 MHz CL15 Mainstream Desktop Memory Module - Black
  • Memory has a decent speed. Playing video games is a pleasure.
  • Nice to have this RAM coz speed so good, no lags so far.
  • Quality is perfect, also memory speed and design in high level.
  • I highly recommend thit memory card for video gamers, you will not dissapoint becouse speed is perfect!
  • Not bad RAM but if you want playing new games without lags you need to consider another variant.
Corsair Vengeance LPX C16 32GB (2 x 16GB) RAM Memory Kit (3200 MHz, XMP 2.0)
  • And for the capacity and the speed - they are pretty good priced among the competition.
  • Out of the box, you'll expect, and might be confused, as to why the RAM is running at 2133MHz. This is pretty standard.
  • For the PC enthusiasts out there who are looking for a fine balance between solid memory speed and sound latency you should be looking somewhere around this product. 3200 MHz also good, but higher latency.
  • Using it a z270 Motherboard with a i7 7700k processor and works fantastically. I've seen no errors and has worked well. I am not overclocking the system though so never used to its full speed rating.
  • At the moment 4000 17-17-17-36 so it is decent speed. Will try 4200 though, later.

What customers say about "Features"
Corsair Value Select 16 GB (1 x 16 GB) DDR4 2133 MHz CL15 Mainstream Desktop Memory Module - Black
  • No problems with installation, the chips aren't too thick.
  • Nice color and design, installation was easy.
  • I like classic design of this RAM, good quality. Never have problems with Corsair.
  • Good color, good design, good speed, good quality, easy installation. Its all about this memory card!
  • Memory has good speed and my games don't lag but installation was problematically.
Corsair Vengeance LPX C16 32GB (2 x 16GB) RAM Memory Kit (3200 MHz, XMP 2.0)
  • It's ram. There's nothing much else to it. No rgb or special features it's just ram.
  • Corsair have always made decent RAM in my eyes, and the low profile stuff is no exception, great for huge coolers and radiator/fans that block the DIMM slots a bit.
  • A little snug on my motherboard underneath the wozzing great fan I have, but has become the final piece in the puzzle. Brilliant.
  • Very good DDRs, quite small so they fit nicely onto the motherboard and don't interfere with the CPU fan
  • Connected everything up, powered it on and Nada... Everything lit up nicely, fans spinning but no display and no USB power.
