Layout and Design

The Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory modules come in a large box with closeup photos of a memory modules' faceplate as well as a profile view of the Airflow cooling unit. The module name as well as the supported specs are clearly marked on the front of the box.

The kit contains a total of four DDR4 memory modules, outfitted with the black colored Vengeance LPX aluminum heat spreader.

The memory modules are rated for 3200MHz speed at 16-18-18-36 timings with 1.35v voltage. The module part number is CMK16GX4M4B3200C16.

Included Accessories

Corsair includes a comprehensive manual with the kit, describing how to construct and install the included fan units as well as instructions for installing and using the memory modules.

The Vengeance Airflow kits include the body unit, three aluminum clips, three colored aluminum fan shrouds, and the screws used in the unit's construction. The unit comes with the red fan shroud installed by default, but the included colored shrouds ensure that the fan units will blend in with any system build.

The body of the fan kit houses a single 60mm fan, oriented to pull air in through the top of the unit and blow the air down across the memory modules. The fan is a seven finned black colored unit. The fan shroud is held in place with four screws through the top, allowing for easy change-out of the shroud if desired. There are passive airflow holes to either side of the fan. The unit is powered by a 3-pin fan cable routed through the bottom of the body.

The legs are attached to the unit's body via screws through the sliding assembly located on each end of the fan body. The attachment assembly can be adjusted for best fit to the motherboard and slots used.

The unit includes two type of clips, the standard bent clip and a straight-leg clip for attaching to the different manufacturer memory clip assemblies. The aluminum side clips fit into the sides of the base unit fitting the horizontal tongue in the top of the clip into a lower side groove, the vertical tabs fitting into vertical groves, and held in place with four screws through the base wall and into tabs on the sides of the clip. The inside bottom of the standard clips are V-shaped and padded to fit over the board's memory slot clips. The straight-leg clips are padded with ridges to better affix to the motherboard memory holders.

The fan kits assemble by fixing the clips in place on the body using the provided screws. The top of the clips fit into grooved built into the sides of the body with the padded V-shaped ends oriented away from the body. The unit stands upright with the unprotected side of the fans facing downward towards the memory modules.

Board Installation

As shown with the X99 board, the Vengeance Airflow kits fit well over both sets of memory slots, framing the CPU socket. The Airflow module add significant height to the memory assembly in general though.
