Vengeance LPX memory is designed for high-performance overclocking. The heat spreader is made of pure aluminum for faster heat dissipation, and the eight-layer PCB helps manage heat and provides superior overclocking headroom. Each IC is individually screened for performance potential. The DDR4 form factor is optimized for the latest Intel 100 Series motherboards and offers higher frequencies, greater bandwidth, and lower power consumption than DDR3 modules. Vengeance LPX DDR4 modules are compatibility-tested across 100 Series motherboards for reliably fast performance. There’s XMP 2.0 support for trouble-free automatic overclocking. And, they’re available in multiple colors to match your motherboard, your components, or just your style. customer service/tech support: 1-888-222-4346 opt. 1

It’s RAM, it has heat spreaders, this is a 2x8gb kit (16gb total). The description and pics could be better, so here are actual pics of what ships when you order 1. Figured the spreader height might be useful to those planning on using monstrous heat sinks with their new skylake chip.

Update 2017-Sept (2 years later) – The original kit is still working well in a system that is my daily use workstation (left on 24×7). I’ve since bought a half dozen more of these kits to use and have as yet run into a bad dimm. Mostly these have been put into Gigabyte Z170 & Z270 chipset boards and none have had an issue getting the advertised speed when using the XMP setting.

After a lot of tinkering and playing guys I figured it out with some help. I could not get the memory to run at 3200, it would just default back to something lower. Posting this information here for anyone that is struggling like I was! Enjoy and hope it works for you all.

I can confirm that I am successfully running the Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz C16 Desktop Memory Kit – White (CMK16GX4M2B3200C16W) on a MSI B350 Tomahawk at 3200Mhz. After MSI updated the BIOS on 4/26 I was able to achieve that speed. Before the update, I was able to get it to 2933Mhz. In BIOS I have the speed set to 3200 and the clocks set to 16 18 18 18 36 and the RAM voltage set to AUTO. When I manually set the voltage to 1.350 it did not work. Anyway, hoping this info is helpful for other buyers and obviously, I’m giving this RAM 5 stars for working as intended with my motherboard.

UPDATE 5/11/17: I have lowered the speed to 2933Mhz. Several memory tests I ran were showing errors when running at 3200Mhz whereas the 2933Mhz is error free. I am running the latest BIOS (B350 TOMAHAWK (MS-7A34) V1.5 BIOS Release). Will retest at a higher speed when new BIOS updates come out.

What to say? This is DDR4 memory, got the 3200MHz fastest one and it worked without problems in a dual channel machine. Don’t forget to enable XMP Profile in your BIOS right away or it will work at standard 2133 MHz.

Update as of 6/20/2017: This ram (CMK16GX4M2B3000C15) simply will not work at it’s rated speeds on the ASUS Prime B350-Plus motherboard, even with the AGESA updated BIOS installed. I’ve been building and tweaking gaming systems for 20 years so believe me when I tell you that it’s not “operator error”. The fastest speeds I can achieve are 2666 MHz at 16-18-18-18-38 1T 1.35v. This RAM uses SK Hynix chips instead of Samsung B. For some reason Samsung B-die chips work like a charm on Ryzen boards but Hynix has compatibility issues all over the place, but some Hynix ram works…so it appears to be completely random. This kit is on my MB’s QVL so I contacted their customer support to find out what I might be missing. They gave me a list of recommended settings to try to get it working correctly. I tried all of them with literally no change. I contacted Corsair about the issue and they said “contact ASUS customer support and get recommendations from them”, which I had already done. Neither ASUS nor Corsair can explain why they don’t work at their rated speeds. I’ve spent all of my free time for the better part of 2 weeks surfing forums, Reddit threads, and discussion boards trying different recommendations given by other users of this RAM or this board, and I’ve had nobody help me get the ram working faster than I way able to get it to work myself. So I think it’s safe to say, if it works for you at rated speeds on a Ryzen board, you’re one of the lucky ones.

I’ve Tried:
* DOCP and manual entries of all timings (derp)
* DRAM Voltages from 1.35v all the way to 1.41v.
* SOC voltages anywhere from 0.95v all the way up to 1.2v. LLC from normal to Extreme
* Timings as loose as 18-18-18
* Enabling / Disabling Power Down Mode and Gear Down Mode
* Tweaked extended timings to XMP Profile Recommendations as reported by AIDA64 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) / (RC-RFC1-RFC2-RFC4-RRDL-RRDS-FAW)
* Tried adjusting ProcODT from lowest to highest
* Tried doing all of the above with just 1 stick of RAM in at a time as well as with both in. Yes, they are in the correct slots!

If there are any recommendations you think I should try please feel free to post a comment on my review. I’m willing to try anything! Ryzen processors scale very well with RAM Speeds…..not just timings, but speed in MHz as well. So if I can get up to 2933 and 15-17-17-35 (the rated speed of this RAM kit) then I’ll be a happy camper!

I was able to get this memory to clock at 3000mhz on my Ryzen 7 1700 on a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 5 motherboard. It is on the approved list for this motherboard and I just used an XMP profile and have done many stress tests with no issues.

Installed into my new Ryzen system with an AB350 Mobo, and 1500X CPU.

PLEASE NOTE – This ram is advertised as 3000, but I found out that it is NOT technically 3000 out of the box, it is capable of speeds up to 3000, and only if you have the ability to overclock it in bios. IF you are using a MOBO with the right bios, you can literally switch a suitable OC setting on just by selection the OC profile.

This is actually a lot easier and safer than it sounds as the AB350 gaming board I got has an easy to find option right on the first page under advanced memory settings. Just check a box, and selection profile 1, and my ram speed went from around 2200 to 2933. I suppose there is little noticeable difference in performance. However, if you are unlucky enough to have to be spending 200$ for ram, you better make sure you get every penny worth out of it!
