We just can't help it: Bruce Willis comes to mind when we think of Corsair's latest memory. But we're sure the same is true for any Die Hard fan. Why? The company's newest memory is called Vengeance, and it's no laughing matter. The new module is optimized for overclocking, compatibility, and affordability, with these new DDR3 sticks marketed towards "enthusiasts and system builders."


They're designed to work with both Intel and AMD platforms, and they have a 1.5V supply voltage. They're available in single, dual, or triple module kits, with sizes ranging from 4GB all the way up to 16GB, and all Vengeance modules are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders for thermal performance as well as aggressive appearance.

The goal here is to provide customers with RAM that can be overclocked, but at a reasonable price. Speaking of price, the 4GB (1x4GB) module will be $74.99 with prices ranging up to $305.99 for a 4x4GB package.

Corsair Launches Vengeance High-Performance DDR3 Memory

– New memory module series optimized for overclocking, compatibility, and affordability –

Fremont, California — November 30, 2010 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Vengeance™ series of high performance DDR3 memory modules for enthusiasts and system builders.

Vengeance memory modules use carefully selected RAMs to enable excellent overclocking results on current and future generation Intel® and AMD platforms. All initial Vengeance memory modules have a low 1.5V supply voltage for maximum compatibility and for energy-efficient operation. Vengeance DDR3 memory kits are available in single, dual, or triple module kits, with sizes ranging from 4GB all the way up to 16GB. All Vengeance modules are equipped with aluminum heat spreaders for thermal performance as well as aggressive appearance.

“Customers have been asking for outstanding overclocking memory with a lower price tag, and we have been listening,” stated Thi La, Vice President of Memory Products at Corsair. “I believe that our users will love both the exciting new look and the overclocking results they are able to achieve with our new Vengeance memory.”

The initial Corsair Vengeance family will consist of seven memory kits, as shown in the table below. All module kits are compatible with current and future generation Intel and AMD platforms.

Thats some very good looking ram!!! If it performs on par with its looks that would be a nice addition to my rig.And they are daring you to overclock using this ram. Hmmmmm Marco you need to get them to turn loose of 2 or 3 4gb packages of this stuff some Intel and some AMD platform and take them up on their dare and run it on the Two and a half geeks podcast for a great reveiw be nice course when you get through with it I know someone that would be very glad to further test the AMD modules out for you kinda of like a in home beta test Ha! Ha!, not gng to mention any names but its a forum member thats having a Bday on the 24th of this month, and would do a great job of putting it through its paces and see if it OC,s well and of course check to see if it holds up! LOL!!!! Seriously I think it would be a good reveiw to see and your the MAN that can do it!

Certainly good looking ram, but I'll wait for benchmarks before drawing any other conclusions.  A memory fan will probably be highly recommended for overclockers.

Looks cool but kinda dissapointed that the 4x1GB is going to be single channel only.

Did you get your RAM issue solved?

Those are lackluster timings... At 1600Mhz, they should have no problem Hitting 7-7-7-20 or something close to it.

VERY good looking ram tho.

I'm happy with my less expensive 1600MHz. G.SKill RipJaws RAM. No problems making the XMP profile work automagically either.

How RAM looks doesn't mean a thing to me.

 I agree! The ram does look great but if it doesnt perform then its nothing more than a hood ornament!

Speaking of ornaments, I see that you changed your avatar, did you get one of those X6 bad boys?
