Corsair Vengeance LED DIMMs are serious about color coordination

So, you ordered that fancy black-and-white mobo, and a neat white case to go with it. Your fans are likewise color-coordinated, as is your graphics card. Oh, rats. The RAM you picked looks really ugly in that set. No worries, Corsair has just the thing for you: Vengeance LED DDR4 DIMMs. Check them out in the video below:

The Vengeance LED RAM sticks come fitted with a choice of white or red diodes, visible along the DIMMs' top end underneath a grooved aluminum heatsink. Corsair says these DIMMs are built on a ten-layer PCB and pack "carefully screened" ICs. Transfer speeds range from 2600 MT/s to a speedy 4333 MT/s. Voltage is set to 1.2V in kits with speeds up to 2666 MT/s, while sticks clocked at 3000 MT/s or higher require 1.35V of juice.

Corsair offers the Vengeance LED DIMMs in packs ranging from 16GB to 64GB. 16GB kits come with two 8GB DIMMs, 32GB kits are available as quad-8GB or double-16GB sets, and 64GB packs come with four 16GB DIMMs. All kits are covered by Corsair's lifetime warranty, by the way. Interested buyers can hit up Corsair's online store, which is already selling versions up to 3600 MT/s. Corsair says that faster kits will appear "shortly."

    This here highfalutin fancy kit is sure to win Corsair valuable product placement on all the ÜberTech TV shows, like [b<]CSI: Cyber[/b<] or [b<]Scorpion[/b<]. Disclaimer: I've never watched either of those shows. Well, I did catch about 15 minutes of CSI: Cyber once, to see if the rumors were true: they are! (I'm more of Mr. Robot/POI kinda guy.)

    I can’t wait for Intel to introduce a mind blowing new processor – a real step up, mind you, 5GHz (Turbo to 6GHz) 16 physical cores and 1GB EDRAM for $299 – and to have the speaker interrupted by someone in the audience:

    “Yeah, yeah… But how many *LEDs* does it have??”

    Forget the LED’s. I’d like to have banks of memory on opposite sides of my AMD CPU.

    The heat sinks for the LEDs are a nice touch, but what keeps the RAM cool? /s

    I give up. I now welcome our new [url=<]LED overlords[/url<]. I shall be dressing in Tron clothing that matches my computer components henceforth.

    That music is just silly.

    From the video they don’t look too terribly eye-searing.
    I’d probably buy a kit if they were priced the same as non-led ones, but I highly doubt that will happen.

    Please–we’re enthusiasts and we ALL know the direct correlation between the number of lights and the speed of the RAM; so yeah, more lights are obviously better as they make the RAM more, uh, RAMier. But NOT DIMMer, because clearly the LEDs make it less DIMM.

    Geez, next I’ll probably have to explain how the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs.

    Hey Corsair, It’s a computer not a light show.

      You know if someone actually integrated a pretty decent work light on a adjustable bendy thing onto the motherboard or some other component I wouldn’t mind that at all.

      But the recent trend for RGB LED’s everywhere has gotten kind’ve silly.

        I had a case (Nzxt maybe?) that had a switchable LED mounted above the port shield bracket. A small thing, but it made hooking up cables under the desk a much easier task.

    Another example of marketing departments being too involved..

    Pfff[irs]t, RGB or GTFO.

        I try to strike a balance. 😉

      With the way that computex seemed to be about “we have RGB everything” you’re not wrong 8-?
