Corsair is known for producing a wide range of memory products to suit just about any performance need or budget. So it really should come as no surprise that their newest series, named Vengeance, takes aim at both of these criteria simultaneously.

The Vengeance DDR3 series comes in Dual and Triple Channel configurations, ranging from 4GB to 16GB kits, and are currently available in 1600MHz and 1866MHz speeds. Today we’re looking at a 12GB kit running at 1600MHz in tri-channel mode. These aren’t six modules though; they’re 4GB density, so there’s only three sticks, leaving room for expansion and probably better overclocking as a result as well.

These new modules are targeted to overclockers and gamers, sporting an aggressive aesthetic and sleek black heatspreaders. The really interesting thing is this 12GB kit only costs $200, one of the least expensive on the market. Large capacity, attractive styling, and a great price……are these Corsair Vengeance modules the next big thing? Let’s find out.

Corsair has been a leader in the design and manufacture of high-speed modules since 1994. Our focus has always been on supporting the special demands of extreme gamers. While maintaining this core focus, in recent years, we’ve also brought our expertise, technology leadership and legendary quality and reliability to memory and other technology products for the mainstream consumer. Corsair has expanded beyond memory modules to offer performance liquid cooling units and blocks under our Corsair Nautilus brand and power supplies under our HX Series brand.
