Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 – For Z170/Skylake

Today we’re going to get a quick run down of Wendell’s experiences with the Vengeance LPX DDR4 3200 kit. DDR-3200 is quite a bit faster than the “default” speed of DDR4-2133 — and we were able to push this kit to DDR4-3400 without any trouble. So we’ve got the clocks on this kit — the fastest kit we’ve tested to date — but is that all that matters?

No! Turns out that, curiously, DDR4-3000 with 16-16-16-18 timings was the fastest configuration on the bechmarks!

I know RAM has, in the past, shown minimal improvements when compared to lower speed modules. However, revisiting the same topic with the non-K, “locked” CPUs, there seems to be quite a bit of improvement in various titles. It interests me because I don’t quite understand why RAM speed makes a difference when it didn’t before.

VertexHero says:

Right now, I’m doing photogrammetry. When building my high poly model in PhotoScan, it takes a beating on my tiny 32GB setup. Running 100%. It’s just to slow. I seriously can’t wait to try 128GB of this in the new Workstation I’m building. Anyone else doing Photogrammetry? If so, what are the results your getting?

Did anyone notice how many times he said that this was THE FASTEST DDR4 kit he’s every tested… #wendellcorsairshillconfirmed

dayam that coldsore is so large you gana have to give it a name. Smeegle or something! dayam!

BackinBlack says:

corsair ram sucks… AVEXIR or G.SKILL is best for the money…

Vitamin Multi says:

you can overclock this ddr 4 i have this dddr4 3200mhz and i runing this 3600 mhz stabil: 18/19/39

If you ever come to Key West beers are on me, lets have some beers and talk Linux.

Hon2838 says:

the ram will good for igpu users,because igpu uses ram as vram

Martin Rios says:

How do I download more RAM?

Mark Messier says:

He’s using the stock cpu fan? Seriously! At least get a $30 aftermarket cooler.

TeflonPimp says:

I saw a Corsair memory being used by overclockers. Does this mean corsair are better than g skill? Or do they have similar performance compared to each other?

MeRiJohnny says:

between this and G.Skill RipjawsV you tested wich one was better?

paul rysdale says:

Did you test with Adobe creative suite ? I just bought 32gb of 3600 hoping it brings huge improvement

Matthew Collins says:

great video will you do a show on usb 3.1 on different hardrive speeds and thunderbolt  3

mc0676 says:

He, thank u for the video.
One question: did u put on XMP the motherboard switch ?

Folterknecht says:

In the days of DDR2 and Phenom/C2D RAM speed had an impact an minFPS in quite a number of games. It wasn’t huge ofc but in this area every bit helps imo. Ofc you ve to factor price into that.

Spank DbO_oty says:

Can I ask the name of case he is using..?

Imperative E Marketing says:

I just got a skylake i7 6700 64watt because I don’t want my computer to run hot. I am a developer and I want to run it for my main machine. I want it to last a long time into the future. This information is very interesting. As a web developer I have been looking into redis for web performance and object caching. The thing is that I don’t want to put it into a full tower. I want to put it into a slim form factor case. I basically want to use it as a linux maching, but it’s likely I will run windows in a virtual machine. So where do I find a motherboard that will support linux and fit in an sff case. I want a case that can support at least 600watt power supply. (will likely get a video card) Where to find motherboard and case to fit my need as a reasonable price? Or should I put this into a server case?

Spank DbO_oty says:

cool bananas

MrBiky says:

I can’t wait to see an AMD AM4 APU running the fastest DDR4 kit (3866? 4200? Bring it on!)

Zooty The Duck says:

tl;dr: Well, it’s RAM and it works.

Ben G says:

Should I get 4×8 or 2×16 for ram?

BossBrownsugar says:

cramming all that awesome hardware into that pos case makes me cringe

Alex Taylor says:

Ram fans sigh. come on Wendell

TheMrFishnDucks says:

very nice ram

Jacob Olsen says:

question, how would this perform as a ramdisk? vs a ddr3 kit

Bob International says:

Nice video what I you recommend I just order the new I7 7700K with a motherboard MSI Z270 Gaming M7 for the memory Im looking for 32 gig 2X16 gig or 4×8 Gig Im just waiting to complete my order your opinion Thx you very much

TheLawnWanderer says:

Latancy > speed when it comes to DDR4.
With higher speeds you get more throughput, but more “ping” of sorts.

Linard says:

With DDR3 the sweet spot for speed was 1600 and 1866. What’s the sweet spot for DDR4? 2400? 2666?

Bob Versyp says:

why would you want to overclock this?
no but seriously, i think they should include this in a 2666 mhz kit or something, because most people will overclock that,
but you are not going to overclock a 3200mhz kit
i mean c’mon
