Corsair Memory, a leading designer of high-performance memory modules and other advanced computer components, on Tuesday introduced a new line of DDR3 memory modules designed for enthusiasts that come with robust cooling solutions and moderate clock-speeds and default 1.5V voltage. Judging by the specifications and cooling systems, the Vengeance family has all chance to become the choice of overclockers.
“Customers have been asking for outstanding overclocking memory with a lower price tag, and we have been listening. I believe that our users will love both the exciting new look and the overclocking results they are able to achieve with our new Vengeance memory,” said Thi La, vice president of memory products at Corsair.
Vengeance memory modules are based on carefully selected memory chips to enable excellent overclocking results on current- and future-generation platforms from Advanced Micro Devices and Intel Corp. At least initially, Vengeance DDR3 memory modules will support 1600MHz and 1866MHz clock-speeds (CL9) amid 1.5V voltage and moderate price-points. Since all high-quality DDR3 modules and chips can handle higher that 1.6V - 1.65V voltage settings easily, end-users will be able to increase both voltages and memory speeds without substantial risk. To further improve overclockability, the Vengeance modules feature robust aluminum cooling systems with high fins.
Vengeance DDR3 memory kits are available in single, dual, or triple module kits, with sizes ranging from 4GB all the way up to 16GB. The initial Corsair Vengeance family will consist of seven memory kits. All module kits are compatible with current and future generation platforms from the two major CPU suppliers.

Can I mix and match while updating on a budget?I have an ASUS CG 1330 which comes with 8 gig in four slots.I would like to update in pairs.1). Is it true that part of being DDR3 is that it is three channel therefore the best results is obtained by using it in increments of three( i.e. 9 gigs or 12 gigs not 8 or 10)? 2.)Do I get the best results using multiples of three and if so why did my computer come with an even number of ram?

For Intel motherboards with core i7-9** series processors its best to have memory in increments of 3. For all AMD and lesser intel systems that use socket 1156 you need DDR3 in pairs.
If you mix and match RAM it lowers them all to the speed of the worst module. You want your pairs or triplets to be the same size capacity otherwise it will ignore some of the capacity or not work at all.
Since that asus is a AMD system you prob only have 4 slots, and if all 4 are populated you would have to remove 2 sticks and replace them with 4gb sticks, making your final total 12gb. 8gb of RAM is more then enough for any possible gaming or home use scenario, unless your running windows in a virtual machine, or using the computer as a server and running over 20 applications at the same time. So this upgrade is probably not necessary.

looks like more advertisement than cooling
