In testing the Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200 32GB kit, I am using a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-6700K. The CPU is set to run at its default stock speeds. Below are the rest of the system specifications:

Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64bit
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700K
CPU Cooler: Cryorig A40 Ultimate All-in-One
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200MHz 32GB (4x8GB)
Graphics card: Galax GTX 1080 HOF 8GB
Storage Drives: Zotac Sonix 480GB NVMe SSD, OCZ RD400 512GB PCIe M.e NVMe SSD
Power Supply: FSP Aurum PT 1000W
Chassis: In Win 805

Here is a CPU-Z screenshot of the Z170 system, where the memory is configured using its Intel XMP Profile.

At first, I thought the Vengeance LED DDR4 doesn’t have any more room left for overclocking. However, I was able to manage to squeeze out more juice from it. I was able to push the frequency from 3200MHz to 3332MHz. That’s a very little increase actually. However, I know that the Vengeance LED can still be pushed further since I saw others reaching speeds of up to 3770MHz with the same kit we got here. This could probably mean that the motherboard that I am using is no longer capable of pushing it any further, or worst case scenario I got a kit that doesn’t overclock well. Nevertheless, I was able to push it a little bit more and using the same timings (16-18-18-36) as with the default XMP 2.0 profile.

Below are screenshots of the AIDA64 Cache and Memory benchmark results of the Vengeance LED DDR4 before and after overclocking. You can see from the results below that there’s a slight increase on the performance of the memory. Not bad at all!

Next page, let’s see the benchmark results using the default XPM 2.0 profile where the Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 is running at 3200MHz 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V.
