Remember those flashy Corsair Vengeance LED memory modules? In case you missed the news, Corsair once again sells RAM with—yes—LEDs on top, this time with DDR4 memory chips inside. The first Vengeance LED release included modules with red LEDs (to match all that red-and-black gamer gear) and another version with white LEDs. Perhaps sensing an underserved market, Corsair now has memory with blue LEDs available, too.
The new RAM is a little spendy, but not just because of the LEDs. The blue-LED versions are only available in 16, 32, or 64GB kits with two or four modules, and only on RAM rated for 3000MT/s or 3200MT/s. The white and red versions are available in a wider range of configurations, although that may simply be because they've been out longer. In keeping with those higher-than-standard speeds, all of the blue Vengance LED memory needs 1.35V to run. Newegg has the new sticks up for pre-order already: a pair of 8GB LEDs (light-emitting DIMMs, ahem) will run builders $95.
