Vengeance 8GBkit 1600Mhz CL8 DRAM wins the "Approved" award Best of Media (THG)
"Normally known for performance, reliability, and compatibility (and not necessary the best pricing), Corsair surprised us by making its CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R kit one of the least-expensive CAS 8 DDR3-1600 8 GB kits on the market. Which of these would we pick? It’s hard for us to recommend running anything at CAS 11, but the super-low price on PNY’s XLR8 MD8192KD3-1600-X9 makes a strong argument against any bias we have against loose timings. On the other hand, Corsair’s moderately-priced Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C8R reached the same DDR3-1866 high mark at a mere CAS 8. Given such a small performance difference, we could easily recommend either of these products, depending on your budget. And so, we will. Both kits receive Tom's Hardware Approved billing."Full Review!
