Vengeance Pro RGB Light Enhancement Kit is ready to fill a RAM void

Do you find yourself looking at your blinkenlit build and disliking the gaping void left by unfilled RAM slots? Corsair is here to help with its Vengeance RGB Pro Light Enhancement Kit.

The almost-DIMMs in the kit contain no actual DRAM—just shells that look and otherwise act exactly like Corsair's Vengeance RGB Pro memory sticks. The light bar at the top contains 10 individually addressable RGB LEDs underneath a diffuser, and the main casing can be had in a choice of either black or white. The light show can be configured using Corsair's iCUE software, naturally. If all this sounds familiar, you may be thinking of Gigabyte's Aorus RGB Memory kits, dual-channel sets with two extra "dummy" modules.

Here are the Corsair's kit's tech specs: capacity of zero gigabytes, transfer rate of zero MT/s, infinity CL, and zero volts nominal current draw for the memory portion. Joking aside, it's easy to dismiss the usefulness of these trim kits, but for those with a concern with a build's looks they're not truly different from RGB-LED-sleeved power cables or light-up fans. As an example, HEDT builders with an eye towards aesthetics might be interested in grabbing these as not to leave an entire four RAM slots open.  

Since technically correct is the best kind of correct, we should remark that technically the kits can actually hold some information—namely, in the status of its lighting (a single bit, on or off), or perhaps in the particular combinations of LEDs in the lighting profile (you guys can do the math). The Vengeance RGB Pro Light Enhancement Kit rings in at $40 in black or white at the Corsair store.

    Infinite $/GB.

    Congrats to Corsair for giving shareholders apopleptic fits of greed.

    At least with the Gigabyte kit the dummy modules came with the memory and the price didn’t seem to be any higher than other comparable memory kits, so it sort of felt like you were getting the dummy modules for free. I don’t think I would pay $40 for just lights, though.

    Cool, I can look like I have more money than I really do by spending money!

    I can see why people might want this, so I understand why Corsair launched this product. I also have opinions about this which aren’t worth sharing. You know the old saying, ‘If you don’t have anything nice to say….’

    A 2x8GB kit of Vengeance RGB Pro costs $136..

    These dummy pairs cost $40.

    They’re still including a PCB and need some rudimentary RGB chip to run these, so give or take a bit….

    You think the spoiler on a Civic is a useless aesthetic gimmick??

    HOLD MY BEER!

      Come on, we all know you’d want the blinkin lights wall like on the Enterprise or the Sea View.

      I don’t think your ironing board welded to the trunk counts as a spoiler.

        Seeing as it spoils the aesthetics of the car, I’d say it does.
