Installation was simple and easy. Just make sure you align the modules to match the notch on the motherboard. Unlike some memory modules I’ve tested, the height of the Corsair Vengeance RGB is just right. They’re not too high and they don’t foul any of my components or cooling, which is great …
The RGB Lighting
Here are the lighting effects of the Corsair Vengeance RGB memory modules. Here, I’ve taken some photos while it was cycling through the RGB colors.
You can use Corsair’s Link software below for controlling the RGB lighting effects.
