Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3000MHz Memory Review
The Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory lineup is basically one of the company’s high performance memory module available. It’s not their top of the line or the highest end product; they have the Dominator Platinum series for those who wants the crème of the crop. The Vengeance LPX sits somewhere in the middle of their memory product stack. It doesn’t have any LED or RGB lighting, unlike their Vengeance LED/RGB siblings. Instead the Vengeance LPX features a low-profile aluminum heat spreader that is available in four different colors; Black, Red, White and Blue. What we have here are the Black and Blue variants.
The Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory has been tested with nearly every motherboard in the market. This means it’s basically compatible with most motherboards available in the market today, both Intel and AMD systems. In our case, we tested it with both the latest Intel Z370 and AMD X370 motherboards and the memory kits were validated and recognized without any problems at all. It also supports XMP 2.0 profile, so be sure to visit your BIOS settings and enable it to take advantage of its fastest stable speeds without manually overclocking the memory.
Aside from four different colors, the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory kit is available in Dual Channel and Quad Channel memory configuration. You can choose from different speeds; ranging from 2133MHz up to 4400MHz, and capacities from 8GB up to 128GB (16GB per stick). Corsair is also offering a limited lifetime warranty on their Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory. More details from the specifications table below.

Packaging and Closer Look
Corsair has been using the same color scheme on their products’ packaging – Black or Black/White with Yellow highlights. It’s a simple packaging design and this one is a little bit slimmer since the Vengeance LPX is a low-profile memory kit and doesn’t (really) need a larger packaging or box. You can see the size and speed on the upper-right hand corner at the front portion of the box; meanwhile you can check out some of its features and information at the back portion and through the window on the middle portion.
Above you can see the front and rear view of the Vengeance LPX’s heat spreader. The heat spreader has a ribbed symmetrical design; the front side bearing the Vengeance LPX DDR4 name and on the other side information and details regarding the memory stick. Information such as serial number or product number, memory type, capacity, speed, timings, voltage and version are all printed on the sticker.
We only have the black and blue variants, we’re missing the red and white ones. But basically the design is just the same, only the heat spreader’s color differ to suite your system’s color scheme. Black seems to be the safest color as it would blend well regardless of your system’s color scheme.
Obviously, the Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 memory kits doesn’t have any LED or RGB lighting; just Cosair’s name on the top-mid section. Below are photos of the Vengeance LPX kit installed on our test system. The first one, we have installed all four-sticks in an alternate pattern, and on the second photo is a two-stick setup. The Aorus Z370 Gaming 5 didn’t have any problem validating the DDR4 memory; regardless of the number of sticks installed or the order it was installed.
