General + -
Overall it can be said, that the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3000C15 32 Gigabyte memory kit does what Corsair claims they do and therefore they clear specs without an issue. Apart from that the Vengeance kits do have a reputation for being beautiful and the RGB LED lighting really adds to it. Making the RGB lighting work can be a little bit tricky in the first place, since you'll have to enter the BIOS and search for the parameter "SPD Write" and set it to enabled. Now Tools such as Corsair's LINK software can access the memory to change the color of the lighting.   - Compatibility with big coolers - RGB lighting  
Scaling   + -
The only latency set with which we've noticed linear scaling was CL12. If we look at CL13, CL14, CL15 as well as CL16 and CL17 we always see a degression when setting 1.5 volt, except for CL14. This means, that at 1.5 Volt you can drive these sticks close to their maximum frequency or worst case 1.5V don't show an effect over 1.35V.   - Scaling CL12  
Overclocking   + -
Using the Rampage V Edition 10 and our specific memory testing CPU, which has a good IMC, reaching 3.2GHz on the memory was actually easy. Unfortunately the journey stops quite soon at 3400 MHz. In this case we have to feed these sticks with 1.35 volt and it's running with latency set that is slightly altered from the stock settings being a little tighter.   - 3.4+ GHz
Recommendation / Price   + -
Checking for prices we find the Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3000C15 32 Gigabyte kit (CMU32GX4M4C3200C16R) listed for 299 Euro. Corsair is therefore continuing with their pricing scheme and these Vengeance modules are definitely no bargain. We would honeslty like to find these modules for a little less.     - Price
The Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3000C15 (CMU32GX4M4C3200C16R) receives good 4 out of 5 stars.
