These kits will be expensive, but as Corsair states the quality should be higher than typical memory with the eight-layer PCBs and ICs selected specifically with overclocking in mind. Hopefully we’ll be able to test drive some Vengeance Pro Series memory to see if meets our Overclockers.com performance standards.

  1. I picked up one of these new sets today: 2x4GB 1866Mhz. The specs are nice and so was the price! Looks pretty good also, I had the silver one because it was on sale at about 5$ cheaper than the other colours. :)
    Z77 boards can make up to ~3200 but CPU's memory controller probably won't pass 2800 on air/water.

    Most IB will make stable DDR3-2600 while Haswell can make 2900+. That's why these kits are marked as designed for Haswell.
    I have a failed understanding here.

    My Z77 board claims to be able to handle ram up to 3000Mhz, why does it say i need a Haswell to be able to run close to the 3000mhz with this ram?
