Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LED Red and Blue

Up Close

Sometimes a manufacturer will pick a particular area of emphasis and focus strictly upon that at the expense of all else in the aesthetics, but we think that the Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 Memory kits really look as good on our table as they do in the system. The all black heat spreader has a cool menacing vibe that would make it perfect for a stealth build, assuming you turned the LEDs off, but they also allow the LEDs to be the focal point if you use the Vengeance for its light-bringing properties. It's all good.

Perhaps best of all is the performance though. As you could see from the selection on the previous page there is a version that suits everyone from the affordable to the most performance hungry user. Taking photos of LED lighting is always difficult, which is why we have so many seemingly similar photographs. It's worth mentioning that perhaps the extreme edges of the kit in the photographs best replicates how deeply saturated and rich the red is on the Vengeance LED Memory Kit. It's one of the best blood red colors we've seen.

We were sent the Red and White LED kits as you can see from the above, but there is a Blue version available and so here are a couple of photos of those from the Corsair website, to show that the Blue is as rich as the Red.

I haven't looked at the video of yours, but from looking at the pictures in the article, it looks like you're using Z170 platform?... And you mention you can make them static?.

Just a FYI to anyone who considers purchasing these, on X99 the only option for now is breathing. I've selected the static option in Corsair Link on my blue ones, but they do still breath.

Corsair Customer Support said that they are working hard at trying to find the issue as to why static isn't working on X99. So mine's are breathing at the moment, but would really like for them to be static.Quote

Agree with Tom in that they should have been static, out of the box.

I have eight of these on an X99 board and when they get out of sync, they look pretty w***y.

Eventually, I think an inward/outward breath could look cool on X99 but for now, I just wish I could make them static.Quote

Looks really good. I might have to think about finally going to Z170 soon. I think I would use the Red on the ASUS Formula MB. Completely agree, static should be the factory default.
