Red, Blue, or Silver? - The choice is yours.

900D, 350D, Air 540, and now a new set of RAM - Corsair sure are supplying us with lots of new products to ogle at. Today we get to have a quick look at the latter with the Vengeance Pro memory kits. Available in a range of colours and speeds, the new memory lineup should be a good match for just about anyone's system.
With red, blue, and silver heatsink designs available, Corsair have ensured that their RAM can be used in a wide variety of motherboards. Not that interested in aesthetics? You should be covered with kits rated up to a blistering 2400MHz.
Prices start at £67.99 at Aria for a Blue/Silver 8GB 1600MHz kit, so you won't need to break your bank to get these bad boys up and running in your system.
Without further ado, let's have a gander through the tech specs, some pictures, and our video before we conclude our thoughts.
As there are many different kits you can buy from the Vengeance Pro memory range it would be infeasible for us to include every spec sheet. As such, below shows the tech specs for the 8GB 1600MHz kit. For the specifications pertaining to the other kit options please visit Corsair's site, here.
The red board used for our demonstration is the Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H, and the blue board is the Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H.
The current influx of new products from Corsair has been nothing short of fantastic, and these new RAM kits are right up there at the top. With the updated heatsink design the RAM simply looks great, and with three different colour options it should be easy to complement the rest of your system.
We've demoed our RAM in two motherboards to give an idea of just how easy it is to make a good looking board like the UD4H look even better. It's often the little touches that make the most difference, after all.
With speeds of up to 2400MHz (this speed is only found with the red kits for now) this memory should be enough for even the most demanding of bandwidth-heavy tasks. Though speeds above 1600MHz are often underutilised by everyday useage and gaming, select tasks such as video editing and rendering can see tangible benefits when done with high-speed RAM.
Starting at £67.99 these kits aren't going to break your bank, but as with all memory we see huge price jumps as we go up through the speed ratings. As such, unless you use applications that benefit from higher speeds, we advise the majority of you to simply buy the 1600MHz kit.
All in all we think that this is some of the most visually impressive RAM to date, capable of complementing the majority of systems out there. For those of you who don't care about aesthetics there are most likely better options out there for you, but if you're like us and you enjoy a combination of eye candy and performance, you really can't go wrong with the Vengeance Pro series.
