Corsair CMK8GX4M2A2133C13 Review

Overall, the 2133C13 version of Corsair's Vengeance LPX has left a positive impression. The kit is good piece of workmanship and its low profile layout make it compatible for each build including even mini ITX systems with massive aircoolers. Furthermore, the overclocking potential of our Micron/Spectek-based sample was extraordinary taking into account the low specs: not only were we able to achieve DDR4-3000 CL14 at 1.35V, but were also able to push the kit to a 50%+ overclock.

Looking up the kit's price via the European price site Geizhals, we currently see a 55 Euro price tag in front of us. This might be around 10 Euros more than the cheapest 2x4GB DDR4 out there, but taking in the good looks, solid heatspreaders and Corsair's lifetime warranty, the price seems to be justified. More so when you check the specs: as of now no kit of equivalent rating (DDR4-2400 CL14 or DDR4-2666+) retails for below the 55 Euros asked for Vengeance LPX.

Taking all in, the kit is definitely worth a closer look if you plan to build an enthusiast rig, especially in a Micro- or Mini-ITX form factor, or with a massive CPU aircooler. If Corsair are able to keep the chip quality at similar levels to what we have seen on our test sample, the Vengeance LPX can still be considered a smart entry-level memory purchase.
