We all know Corsair. From memory and SSDs to cases and power supplies and mice and keyboards and fans and coolers and... Well, they pretty much make it all except for video cards and motherboards. If you don't have at least one of their products, you probably have four or five, and if you don't, what rock have you been hiding under? As one of the premier ultra-enthusiast brands, Corsair has most definitely built a name for themselves over the years everyone knows and recognizes. They've built that name on both premium and affordable products that cater to nearly every user and are one of the top brands in every category they make a product for. Naturally, many of those products include RGB. How could they not?
As much as one might like all these RGB products out there, there's something glaringly missing from it all, and that's a set of all-encompassing software to control all these items simultaneously. As a hardware maker that is positioned into so many parts of our market, it makes sense that Corsair is one of those first brands to offer such software for all of their RGB hardware in iCUE. This fancy bit of software can do it all, and one might argue that it does it better than all the others, but really, that's not why we are here today. What we are really here to look at is Corsair's latest iCUE-supporting high-end memory, the Vengeance RGB PRO DDR4.
Corsair sent us one of their top-end sets out of their Vengeance RGB PRO line-up to look at, a 4000 MHz kit consisting of two 8 GB modules that are intended for use with Intel 300-series platforms. With base timings of 19-23-23-45, these 1.35 V sticks offer Dynamic Multi-Zone Lighting with that Corsair iCUE support, letting you synchronize all your iCUE compatible products, including memory, fans, RGB LED light strips, keyboards, mice, cases and more—all without any wires.
