The Corsair Vengeance - 4GBx2 - Is it worth the buy?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I currently own 2GBx2 Kingmax RAM atm (see sig), I want to upgrade the RAM for better performance. After some light research, I discovered the Corsair Vengeance was the way to go.

On Amazon, it appears to only be $49.99. Should I buy this?

Thanks

The basic Vengeance set has pretty average CL9 timings, other than the differences with having more memory available, at stock settings you probably won't notice a thing different.
If you can improve the timings with a touch of extra voltage, that may well help. AMD chips like their tight timings for maximum performance.

Very nice kit of ram. If you use the Corsair with the Kingmax.. This is my personal preference, but I would make sure you keep the timings, mhz, and voltages the same.
