From the manufacturer
Perfect For When You Need High Performance And Low Clearance
Vengeance Low Profile heat spreaders have a reduced height of 1.03” (26.25mm). They’re designed for high-performance systems with extra-large CPU coolers, small form factor system builds, or any other space-constrained application where you need high-performance memory but standard Vengeance modules might not fit.
Great For Overclocking
Each Vengeance memory module is built from DRAM ICs specially selected for performance potential, to allow you to explore the limits of system overclocking.
If you're new to overclocking, full support for Intel Extreme Memory Profile (Intel XMP) makes it easy. Add Vengeance to your XMP-compatible system and it can automatically select the maximum possible overclocking performance, quickly and easily.
Make Your System Build Budget Go Farther
If you're a gamer, a system builder, or just an all-around performance enthusiast, you should demand performance and reliability, regardless of your budget. If you need dependable, overclockable memory at an attractive price, Vengeance is a great choice.
Rigorous Screening And Exhaustive Testing
Speed is nothing without stability. That’s why Vengeance DDR3 memory kits, like all Corsair memory products, are carefully screened and tested to exacting standards. They’re backed up with a limited lifetime warranty that lets you buy with confidence.

No problems. I also use a 10gb RamDisk leaving 22gb for the system.
It was not necessary to remove my Phanteks cooler to insert this LP ram. Only the fan on the right side. Plenty of clearance under the large tower cooler,
If you are worried about ram clearance , get this kit (or 2) .
You will notice many QVL's do not list very many types of ram kits. They say: Due to the large number of Ram types on the market we have only tested the ones listed.
That doesn't mean it won't work just fine. Get a good brand (Corsair) in the type and speed that matches the capabilities of your board and processor and you should be good to go. Having said that, MOST require that you go into the BIOS and set to SPD or 9-9-9-24 2T at 1.5 volts or Auto Volts, leave the rest of the settings alone and you are good to go. Don't forget to F10 Save and exit.
Unless a stick is not seated well, then shutdown unplug and reseat.
Highly recommended kit.
Great product, but Corsair customer support is so-so. My initial set of RAM failed so I contacted customer service for a warranty replacement. They were stalling for weeks, claiming to not have stock, and pushed for a $40 refund, which is not right. Eventually, after going through several reps, they finally agreed to send a replacement kit. I ended up selling that and bought these on Amazon.
* I chose Corsair for their brand, and picked the Vengeance series for the heat spreaders.
* I've picked this particular model for the low-profile heat spreaders, which are barely taller than a standard stick of RAM (i.e. without heat spreaders) to ensure that it didn't bump up against the CPU cooler or drive cage in my SFF case.
* I also it specifically for a CAS Latency of 9, as opposed to 10 in other models (not that it makes a great difference in the real world!).
The standard JEDEC speeds go up to 1333 MHz, and the 1600 MHz speed relies on an XMP profile which can be enabled in BIOS.
This memory works as expected, and I'm totally satisfied with the same.
