If you’re gunning for maximum visual pizzazz then Corsair’s new Vengeance LED kits are as swanky as you can get. They sport a glowing, pulsating light bar at either end that looks great, although it’s currently only available in red or white and there’s no way to control the lighting. Knowing Corsair, though, an RGB version may arrive at some point, which would be handy for color-matching your memory to your motherboard and case.

Despite sporting full lighting, though, the Vengeance LED doesn’t cost a small fortune. This 3000MHz kit costs just $120, saving you some money over the 2666MHz Avexir Impact kit. We were unable to get a 3200MHz kit from Corsair to test in this category, but this 3000MHz kit was able to reach 3466MHz without raising the timings anyway, equalling the best results on test. Measuring just 49mm tall, there’s a good chance these modules might interfere with some air coolers though.

For this price, Corsair’s Vengeance LED memory is an excellent buy, and the 3000MHz kit is a particularly sweet spot, costing just a couple of bucks more than the 2666MHz version but able to overclock beyond the 3200MHz version once overclocked, which will cost you around $8 more.
