    These are low profile in comparison to the standard tall heatspreader Vengeance modules (hence Vengeance Low Profile). They are intended for desktop PCs where the taller heatspreader of the regular Vengeance can cause issues with some CPU coolers.

    I think by LP they should mean Low Power, not Low Profile.

    The key selling point here is the 1.35V - lowering the power draw for small systems with limited heat dissipation, make sure those sticks don't overheat in a warm running system with a tight enclosure.

    Acronym interpretation/creation FAIL??

    The LP is for Low Profile. The regular Vengeance and Vengeance LP operate at 1.5V, but this "Arctic White" version runs at 1.35V.

    Re: News - Corsair intros 'Arctic White' low-profile Vengeance DDR3 memory

    not bad looking ram maybe they should be NP for normal profile rather than low profile.

    How do they compare in height to say corsair xms3

    i prefer the look of the blue ones myself

    Re: News - Corsair intros 'Arctic White' low-profile Vengeance DDR3 memory

    Have to say, despite being a big fan of corsair memory, the heatspreaders are completely pointless on 1.5v or less DDR3 and some of them are of a stupid size too - so in a way it's nice to see "LP" ones whilst I still don't see the point in the craziness of vengeance stylee spreaders.

    If anything the only like I have from spreaders is that it makes it easier to plug them in and out

    ^^^^ This

    Absolutely. Heat spreaders on sticks like that are completely pointless. One of the things I love about the Geil 'black dragon' sticks is the lack of head spreaders. And standard height sticks are not low profile, just standard profile, or normal.

    Re: News - Corsair intros 'Arctic White' low-profile Vengeance DDR3 memory

    The heatspreaders do make the memory look more attractive, though that's down to personal opinion, of course. But you can match your memory colour to your motherboard or case (if you have a white case), which many people do like to do.

    Horses for courses - if you don't like heatspreaders, there are plenty of DIMMs (including from Corsair) that don't have them. And if you do like them, then you can now choose from black, blue, red and white, in tall or short formats. The choice is yours, which includes choosing not to have heatspreaders!

    will there be 1.5v high-profile whites?
    will there be 1.35v normal-profile blues?

    Re: News - Corsair intros 'Arctic White' low-profile Vengeance DDR3 memory

    I think Arctic White / a white colour will denote 1.35V. What we launch in the future will largely depend on what people want / what's popular.

    You have 1.35v DDR3 without spreaders?

    An 8GB kit (2 x 4GB modules) retails for £70, representing a 40 per cent premium over the cheapest standard-sized kit we could find.




    Really?

    Black LP £56.59 Link

    White LP £69.72 Link

    23% premium for being WHITE and 1.35V

    The BLACK is same price as non-LP memory.

    the black dragons were good but the golden dragons now they were really goood i still have my old 2x256mb pc3500 DDR set sitting on the shelf in my lounge they were IMO the best looking ram ever.

    to be fair, Scan are either gouging a bit on em, or ebuyer have an amazing price, but they can be had much cheaper.
