But Why is the RGB Gone? It seems like the only new RAM is RGB RAM. In the midst of this, Ballistix makes the bold move to release “normal” memory. The new Sport AT modules arrive with a simplistic design, while partnering with Asus TUF branding. In theory, we should be able to expect some impressive performance. We’ll find that out soon, right after a quick word from Ballistix.
Micron does an amazing job with their latest memory in the Ballistix lineup. Not only does the Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4 kit look great, it has excellent build quality and the overclocking was excellent. The MOD software needs a little work and the price is a bit high, but still a very worthy kit.
Patriot has aggressively styled heat spreaders and LED lighting, making their RAM kits attractive. However, it's the overclocking potential of the Viper LED DDR4 that really shines. They only come in RED or White LED, but we're hoping for RGB in the future.
GeIL does a great job with their RGB lighting and high out of the box frequencies. Where their RAM falls a little short though is in the overclocking department. Since many choose not to overclock their memory, the Super Luce RGB Sync AMD kit might be just right for you.
PureOC will always recommend building your own computer, but we understand that isn't for everyone. iBuyPower does an excellent job selling pre-built custom PCs and we really enjoyed getting a chance to review the Element. Besides, we couldn't say no to the chance to try an Intel i7-7900X and Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti!
GeIL found a way to add RGB lighting to memory without affecting it's clockspeeds. The Evo X does require an extra cable connection, but it makes a nice addition to the build. While the stock speeds are great, there's little overclocking room and the red switch stands out a bit too much, though it's easily removed.
