If you are in the market for a high-capacity triple-channel memory kit, the 12GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600MHz memory pack is worth considering.

In needing plenty of RAM for some triple-channel memory systems to be used as commodity servers for a yet-to-be-unveiled Phoronix project, I ended up settling for the Corsair Vengeance 12GB kits. For less than $90 USD, Corsair offers three 4GB DDR3-1600MHz memory modules that are backed by a lifetime warranty, supports Intel Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP), and meet the expectations that I have for Corsair after many years of reviewing Corsair products. While RAM reviews aren't one of my exciting focuses these days on Phoronix, I decided to share my thoughts and some benchmark results for those interested.

The 12GB Corsair Vengeance kit is rated to run at DDR3 1600MHz speeds with 9-9-9-24 timings with 1.5 Volts. The DDR3 memory heatsinks on this kit are similar to that of other Vengeance memory products.

The DIMMs for this kit are labeled CMZ12GX3M3A1600C9.
