As we all know Intel has released their new Haswell-E HEDT processors, which support DDR4 memory.

By default this quad channel kit is supposed to run at 2800 MHz and CL16 timings.

With the Vengeance LPX DDR4 C16 kit, Corsair has memory modules in its portfolio, which serve the high-end market. A more detailed look at the specifications reveals, that these Corsair appears to be cautious in choosing frequency as well as timings. The Hynix MFR chips on these modules are set to run at CL16-18-18-35. If you keep in mind, that other memory makers drive these chips at CL15-15-15-35 and DDR4-3000 one can quickly understand why we’re saying Corsair is being conservative.
