Corsair has come up with a solution for anyone having trouble trying to squeeze a monstrous CPU cooling solution into their rig only to find that the RAM is getting in the way. It's the company's new Vengeance LP DDR3 memory series. These low profile kits feature heat spreaders with a reduced height of 1.03 inches (25.25 millimeters), nearly an inch shorter than the standard height of 1.87 inches (47.37 millimeters).
The Vengeance LP kits are available in three different colors, including "Jet Black," "Cerulean Blue," and a "Special Edition Arctic White." Like the original Vengeance series, these are designed to run at 1.5V, except for the Arctic White version, which operates at the ultra-low voltage of 1.35V.
To kick things off, Corsair plans to offer its Vengeance LP series in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB kits, each one with a rated frequency of 1600MHz and 9-9-9-24 latencies.
