I can't believe they gave that the Vengeance name. So many Vengeance kits barely qualify as low end memory, yet put the name that memory enthusiasts would avoid like the plague on a high end kit.
No problem, I should have posted that earlier, hadn't really been paying attention the 'nicked PCB, tried it & it works' or 'doesn't work' posts, insulating before powering up may increase chances of survival if it can short.
...from the press release (grains of salt) "..The extreme-speed 3000MHz rating of the Vengeance Extreme memory kits is the result of a rigorous internal four-stage hand-screening process performed by Corsair engineers. This process is passed by fewer than one in 50 memory ICs. Performance qualification is performed on select Intel Z77
based motherboards, including the ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE and ASRock Z77 OC Formula. To hit their rated speeds, the modules require a 3rd Generation Intel Core unlocked processor with an Integrated Memory Controller capable of running 3000MHz."
...I have seen Asus J.J. talk on NewEgg.tv / YouTube about some of their top boards (z77 / x79) getting certified for 3000 MHz ram
