Memory Layout and Design
The Corsair Vengeance Pro memory modules come in a cardboard box emblazoned with the series logo as well as the size configuration of the pack. The modules themselves are protected in the box through a plastic clamshell.
The back of the box contains more details on the modules, as well as the specific part and serial numbers. Additionally, Corsair left a window to view the physical memory specs listed on the modules.
Layout and Design
The Corsair Vengeance Pro memory modules comes with a flat black colored heat sink with the Vengeance series logo on the front and the memory specifications, including voltage, timing, and speed ratings, on the back. The memory modules are DDR3 modules with 240 gold plated connection pins.
The specific Corsair Vengeance Pro memory being reviewed are the 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1866 modules. These module are rated for 1866MHz speed at 1.50V and 9-10-9-1T memory timings. Their part number is CMY16GX3M2A1866C9.
The upper part of the module is removable from the base with a Corsair logo shown on the clip's front side. The upper clip is made from aluminum and comes in three color configurations – red, blue, and silver. The review samples we received were of the silver variant.
The heat sinks on the memory modules are a two piece design, held to the module itself using double-sided thermal tape. The 8GB memory modules reviewed are dual-sided with memory chips located on both sides of the module.
Each side of the 8GB memory module is designed with 8 memory chips, for a total of 16 memory chips per module.
The individual memory chips used on the Corsair Vengeance Pro modules carry the SpecTek memory manufacturer logo, which is a Micron subsidiary. According the their part markings (the PEB12 code to the upper right of the corporate logo), the chips are rated at DDR3 1333MHz speeds with 9-9-9 timings. The memory chips are designed in an FBGA (Fine pitch Ball Grid Array) type package with SpecTek part number PRN/SAA512M8V80AGDRH. Information concerning the memory chipset can be found in this memory chip component sheet on the SpecTek corporate site.

Looks like are tall and would have problems with running into Cpu air coolers.
These modules were used in
These modules were used in the Intel Z87 reviews with a Noctua DH-14 cooler used for fit testing. While they are tall, the modules and that cooler fit ok. See the MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming, ASUS Maximus VI Extreme, or ASUS Gryphon Z87 reviews for details…
That’s because the Noctua
That’s because the Noctua NH-D14 uses a 120mm fan for the first push position. If you’re using a big CPU heatsink with a 140mm fan that extends down past the heatsink (Phanteks/Thermalright, etc.) you’re going to have more issues.
That would be a weakness in
That would be a weakness in my opinion.
Intel® Extreme Memory Profile
Intel® Extreme Memory Profile (Intel® XMP) allows you to overclock compatible DDR3 memory to perform beyond standard specifications. Not Intel XMP (Extreme Memory Platform)
Picking up two 2x4GB Kits to drop in the ASUS ROG Maximums 6 Hero/or Extreme with the Core i7 4770K been cooled by a Corsair H80i and power by of Corsair AX860i PSU, course it won’t be until after September waiting for stable driver’s and all.
