What customers say about "Key Specs"
Corsair Vengeance LPX C15 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4 3000 MHz, XMP 2.0
  • Blazing fast, and great capacity. Don't need any of that RGB ram to get a great set. No problems, and setting up an XMP profile is a breeze.
  • My system originally detected it as 2133MHz memory, not 3200MHz. when I manually set it to 3200MHz in the BIOS the system crashes, so I have had to settle for 3000MHz instead, however I suspect this isn't a problem with the RAM itself.
  • Simply install the memory and enable XMP Memory in the Bios and it should work at the 3000Mhz speed straight away. Highly Recommended!
  • I have 4 modules installed now so for stability have reduced the clock speed.
  • Once in, performance instantly improved, with a very noticeable increased speed in producing videos. Given the cost of these, they are excellent value for RAM
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 Vengeance LPX C15 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4 3000 MHz, XMP 2.0
  • Ram looks great in my new system, Temps are low in AIDA64 Memory stress test so the Heat sink must be working well.
  • Eventually I came across a video on memory overclocking, it told me XMP was basically overclocking.
  • The XMP profile picked the correct memory timings when enabling it in the BIOS and I have the memory on a permanent DDR4 3600 overclock with no issues to report. I wasn't able to overclock beyond DDR4 3600 however.
  • I just built a computer for a customer strictly using either black or white components and these memory sticks fitted the bill perfectly.
  • Again Corsair are great, but MSI in particular don't do a great job of supporting XMP memory profiles.
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.
