Corsair has once again expanded its lineup of Vengeance RGB memory modules, this time with a new series of white DIMMs that incorporate RGB lighting. Dubeed the Vengeance RGB White, these sticks are aimed at modders building white systems with RGB enhancements. The new DIMMs cover a broad range of speeds and capacities, with 16, 32 and 128 GB DDR4 dual- and quad-channel kits running at 3000, 3200 and 3600 MT/s data transfer rates.

White is becoming more popular among modders these days. Over the past several years, we have seen multiple white motherboards and computer cases, but other components like PSUs, graphics cards and memory modules came in white relatively rarely. By contrast, over the past few months, we have seen an uptick in the number of launches of products in white enclosures, including PSUs. Being one of the most prominent supporters of white components, which has offered white PC cases for more than five years, it seems only fitting that Corsair has taken the next step by offering white DIMMs.

The Corsair Vengeance RGB White family of memory modules consists of 8 GB and 16 GB DIMMs (supposedly based on Samsung’s B-die ICs) running at DDR4-3000 CL15, DDR4-3200 CL16 and DDR4-3600 CL18 speeds. The modules require 1.35V, so an enthusiast-class motherboard that can increase DDR4 voltages is necessary. Like other Vengeance-series modules, the Vengeance RGB White DDR4 kits come with XMP 2.0 SPD profiles to make their setup easier on Intel's X99, Z170, Z270, Z370 and X299 platforms.

3600 MT/s CL18 19-19-39 16 GB 2x8GB CMR16GX4M2C3600C18W $204.99

Just like their brethren from the original Vengeance RGB family with black heat spreaders, the Vengeance RGB White modules plug into regular DIMM slots and do not require any additional cables for RGB lighting. The latter can be controlled using the Corsair Link software, allowing users to synchronize colors of RGB lighting of their DIMMs and specific motherboard brands. Lighting of each module can be controlled separately as well. Besides, the RGB lighting can also be tuned using appropriate programs from manufacturers of motherboards — the ASUS Aura Sync, the GIGABYTE RGB Fusion and the MSI Mystic Light.

The Corsair Vengeance RGB White lineup is now available directly from Corsair and from its resellers worldwide. Since we are dealing with unique products for enthusiasts/modders, they come at a premium price. For example the 16 GB DDR4-3200 CL16 and the 16 GB DDR4-3600 CL18 kits cost $199.99 and $204.99, respectively. The 32 GB kits are priced from from $374.99 to $399.99, whereas the 128 GB kit is available for $1469.99.

    -- You promote extra sales this way.

    come on!! capitalists are really generous folks, not cynical predators. at least, that's what Ayn says.

    There is no capitalism, what we have is corporatism. Contemporary humans seem to understand pretty much everything in the wrongest possible way.

    Well, I looked it up, and each DDR4 DIMM consumes around 4Watts per DIMM, 6Watts if the voltages are really pushed.

    Even 6W per DIMM is hardly going to require any cooling at all.

    They only get a little warm to the touch. I've got four black heat spreader, 8GB, white LED ones running at 3466 MHz.
  • ddriver - Sunday, October 1, 2017 - link

    Those modules in particular will most likely cool better without the heatspreaders. A ram stick is big enough to displace even 10 watts on its own, but when you suffocate it like that, cooling performance will likely deteriorate.
  • meacupla - Monday, October 2, 2017 - link

    yeah, because RAM gets so insanely hot, right?
    You are looking at +15~25c over room temp at full load. Hardly the kind of temperatures that will quickly burn out chips.
  • ddriver - Monday, October 2, 2017 - link

    How hot it gets depends on how much heat it generates and how much heat it is able to displace. Even a little generated heat will gradually build up and become a problem with instead of cooling you have an insulating solution that also adds additional heat.

    I had 64 systems in my farm, about half of them had 4x4gb ram, the rest 2x8gb ram, and it wasn't anything high end either, it was low profile ddr3 1600 from corsair with a basic heatspreader, running at stock volts. In 5 years I had only a single 8gb module fail, while the whooping 12 4 gb modules failed in the same amount of time.

    That to me is clear and obvious evidence that heat matters for product durability, the systems with 4 modules had the modules significantly warmer than the systems with 2 modules, having the modules spread further apart improved temperatures by about 15 degree C.

    And even the systems with 4 modules had some space between the modules for air to circulate, whereas the modules from the article are literally packed together like sardines. Even thou voltage is slightly lower for ddr4, they are higher capacity and higher clocks, so I doubt they will run sufficiently cool to not be at a detriment from that moronic design.

    I think they've finally proven it, there are two types of PC builders. Ones who want their computer to look like a Christmas tree and ones who don't care what their computer looks like.
