Like most other vendors in this space, Corsair has been offering memory modules with RGB lighting for some time. The company rolled out its latest products in the Vengeance Pro series, with the new DIMMs featuring 10 RGB LEDs — more than what G.Skill or Kingston offer.
The 10 LEDs allow Corsair to offer differentiated color zones across the length of the memory modules, and it certainly looks more vibrant than the standard Vengeance RGB DIMMs.
The modules themselves feature new aluminum heat spreaders, with the RGB diodes located across the length of the module at the top. They also come with XMP 2.0 SPD profiles, and if you're using these with a Ryzen setup, the 3200MHz kits should be more than adequate.
Considering the size of the modules, it's unlikely they'll be able to fit in a small form factor chassis or one with a large air cooler. I had to get rid of the heat spreader to accommodate my Noctua NH-D15S, so if you are eyeing RGB memory modules, a better bet would be to go for liquid cooling.
Like the rest of Corsair's products, you'll be able to control the lighting effects of the Vengeance Pro modules via the brand's iCUE software. The software launched in early access earlier this year, and is now making a full release.
The new Vengeance Pro family is available in 8GB variants, with kits going up to 32GB and 4000MHz. The memory modules will go up for sale in the U.S. in the coming weeks, and we'll know more about pricing at a later date.
