The new Vengeance modules from Corsair are being shipped in its own cardboard box. Apart from that they have been enclosed in blister packaging.

The heatspeaders of the new Vengeance have a finish that's been kept in black entirely, which - apparently - makes them visually suitable almost any kind of build. Apart from that there is the RGB illumination, which allows for choosing any color you like. The heatspreaders on these modules have been nicely made, consisting of sheet aluminum thermal interface padding and the a transparent plastic bar for the red illumination.  

Taking the heatspeaders off Corsairs Vengeance series is not something we would recommend doing at home due to strong adhesive that requires a very careful approach. Once the heatspreaders have been removed we see that Corsair is putting Hynix ICs on these modules which received custom labeling. As we already mentioned we'd guess Corsair is making use of Hynix's AFR chips.

The main feature of these Corsair Vengeance memory sticks is clearly the RGB lighting. To be perfectly honest with you I frist struggled a little bit making the colors change on these sticks. I had to figure out that I need to set "SPD Write" to "Enabled" in the BIOS so the Corsair LINK software can send the memory sticks the commands which allow for changing the colors. Once that's working you can either configure the DIMMs individually or grouped. In the case of the color selection you choose from the entire RGB spectrum. Apart from that there are also different modes like "Static", "Color Pulse", "Color Shift" and "Rainbow" pre-programmed. Once that little setting in the BIOS is done choosing different colors or effects is basically as simple and as straight forward as it gets. Apart from that the memory sticks glow evenly and rather bright in your system.
