Corsair V.S. G.SKILL RAM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

 

I am currently in the process of piecing together a Ryzen 7 3800x or Ryzen 7 3900x build.

 

I'm stuck between the G.SKILL TridentZ or the Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB 3600 kits.

 

Which would you pick over the other and why?  Also, if you would suggest different RAM entirely which would it be and why?

 

Thanks,

FineV

If there is no price different just get which ever you like more and will fit better with the build (appearance,size and design).

Styling of the modules would be a subjective choice if you like one better than the other.  Two very nice features with the Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro kit is full software control of the individual LED's and compatibility with the Corsair iCUE ecosystem if you already have other Corsair products.  Let me know if you have any questions about the Vengeance RGB Pro kit.

G.Skill, just because I've bought their RAM for years and only ever had 1 stick fail (even then it lived it's useful life).

 

Really they're both well known, reputable brands pick whichever one is more aesthetically pleasing to you.

Compatibility extends further for things like SDK game integration, and full system linked lighting effects.  iCUE currently has integration in Diablo 3, Metro Exodus, Far Cry 5 and New Dawn, Division 2, with more titles in the works.

 

Software control in general allows you to control and customize each individual LED on every module as opposed to only pre-defined lighting effects without it enabled.  Sounds very similar, but very different levels of customization.

Thanks I get what you mean I have a Corsair Keyboard the K95 platinum to be exact. Is there game integration for this too? Where can I find it in the ICUE software?

Are you comparing the specs or just looking at aesthetics and the controls for the RGB?  Because the G.SKILL kit has a lower CL.

All iCUE compatible hardware should be compatible with the games I listed above.  Make sure the most current version of iCUE is installed, and "Enable SDK" is checked in settings in the lower right panel.  Once you start any of the supported games, the SDK game integration should kick in and react to game elements.

If you go for aesthetics, Corsair won't dissapoint. I love the waterfall rainbow RGB on my Vengeance Pro's.

I'm going for performance with Ryzen CPU's as I like the looks of both of them.
