Back with a Vengeance

VENGEANCE RGB PRO SL refines the style of the highly popular VENGEANCE RGB PRO lineup, sporting a tweaked industrial design and measuring at just 44mm tall which greatly increases the compatibility of VENGEANCE RGB PRO SL with many cases in terms of clearance with top-mounted radiators.

VENGEANCE RGB PRO SL matches high performance with refined style and wide compatibility.

However, with many memory launches, we get loads of questions about picking the right kit for a wide variety of motherboards, CPUs, and systems in general.

How Do I Find Compatible Memory?

With our new memory, we’ve also launched a new memory finder on our website, integrated directly into the memory page, with loads of options to dial in your system config and get you paired up with compatible memory kits.

Not all memory kits are created equal and picking compatible memory with the right mix of speed, latency, and capacity is important for a stable system.

Our new memory finder can be accessed by clicking the “FIND BY COMPATIBILITY” button when on our memory page.

From here, you can dial down compatibility by system like a CORSAIR ONE, CORSAIR VENGEANCE GAMING PC, or ORIGIN Gaming Notebook for example, or if you’re wanting to spec out memory for your own build, you can sort by motherboard and make the appropriate selections using the dropdown menus.

The memory finder lets you filter compatibility by system or motherboard model.

Once you’ve selected your system or motherboard, you can refine the results with filters for things like total kit capacity, number of modules, color, speed, or CAS latency. When shopping for memory, it’s good to keep in mind that speed is only part of the equation, if you want the fastest memory possible for your system, go for the fastest supported kit with as low latency as you can find, and depending on the application, it may actually be better to go with a lower speed kit with better (lower) latency.

You can filter the results even more based on your preferences such as number of modules, total capacity, etc.

Once you’ve found a module you like, click the “LEARN MORE” button to be taken to the product page for that memory and add it to cart!

Picking the right CORSAIR memory for your system is easier than ever with tools like our memory finder.

Of course, if you already know what memory you’re looking for you can just browse the normal way, but we hope that this new memory finder tool makes it easier for you if you’re still trying to make sense of it all!
