General + -
Overall it can be said, that the Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200C16 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 red LED lighting really adds to it. Nevertheless CL16-18-18-36 at DDR4-3200 is a rather conservative latency set. The maximum frequency this kit could easily cope with was DDR4-3400 at CL16. In this case we had to run it with 1.35V.   - Compatibility with big coolers  
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 LED DDR4-3200C16 32 Gigabyte kit (CMU32GX4M4C3200C16R) listed for 295 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. Considering that other manufacturers are offering DDR4 memory kits with tighter latency for a lower price these modules are facing tough competition.     - Price
The Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4-3200C16 (CMU32GX4M4C3200C16R) receives good 4 out of 5 stars.
