'Tis the season...for new memory modules? Hot on the heels of a new
HyperX release by Kingston, Corsair has just announced that their
Cerulean Blue Vengence high-performance RAM modules are now on sale.
These are DDR3 kits designed to make your system scream (and your wallet
too), with blue heat spreaders that beg for a clear enclosure to show
The company claims that this memory line is perfect for performance
junkies and those who just love to overclock, and they work well with
Intel's new 2nd-gen Core family of processors. ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte
motherboards are all checked off, and they can be found in 4GB, 8GB and
16GB kits. Pricing, however, remains a mystery for now.
