What customers say about "Key Specs"
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.
G.Skill Trident Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 PC25600 3200MHz C16 Kit
  • This is some great memory. I had to change the speed of the memory from 2333 in the bios to the full 3200mhz at first boot but other than that they work perfectly.
  • Perfect pair of memory. Always work with G.Skill and never had problems.
  • Very fast memory. Good looking too. 3200 Mhz easy obtained by just selecting XMP profile in BIOS.
  • I picked this memory as it had decent performance out of the box which was important to me as i don't overclock beyond XMP profiles.
  • Bought the ram and it works great. Got it running at faster speeds without sacrificing timings.

What customers say about "Features"
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.
G.Skill Trident Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 PC25600 3200MHz C16 Kit
  • Personally I also love the black/red/grey heat spreaders they definitely fit perfectly into any colour theme you can imagine in my opinion.
  • DIMMs are very pretty in my opinion.
  • Awesome design, extremely fast, quick installation.
  • I like this color, very beautifully fit into my motherboard!
  • I haven't issues with that RAM, design is perfect!
