Sport AT for TUF Gaming I may be an RGB-oholic, but I appreciate companies showing love to those who aren’t. Ballistix added the Sport AT model to their lineup. While it takes some rugged design notes from the Tactical Tracer RGB series, it forgoes the fancy lighting for a more mature design. (I know, I admit to my immaturity!) In particular the yellow highlights on the heat spreaders match particularly well with the Asus TUF branding of motherboards.
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.
Adata is about to shake up memory cooling with their latest design in the Spectrix D80. These RAM kits come with a sealed liquid that boils at low temperatures, helping cool the modules more efficiently in theory than a typical heat spreader. Overclock away!
I could tell you about the 3000 MHz speed, or the 15-17-17-15(?) timings, or the XMP 2.0 profile, but there's only one thing that really matters here. Glowing Snake Eyes!!! That's right, the eyes on the Viper logos actually glow on this DDR4 RAM! You have to admit that's pretty awesome right?
The Tactical Tracer RGB RAM kits have an awesome heat spreader design. As good as that is, it looks like Ballistix has brought the memory's lighting control to a new level as well. The utility has a lot of features and users can custom 3D print their own light bars!
If you've been needing a break from all the RGB news, Corsair has just the RAM you need. The Dominator Platinum Special Edition Contrast Memory offers a clean aesthetic, with only white LEDs, to match the builder who wants a professional look. Also, there's performance to match!
The Super Luce Memory Kits from GeIL with RGB Sync now support Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI motherboard software. It may seem like their RAM is a step behind the curve, but GeIL offers exceptional value when you consider how many features are included at some of the best prices for RGB RAM.
G.Skill Released the fastest Trident Z RGB Memory kit at 4700 MHz. Considering the integrated lighting effects, that's a pretty incredible feat. While world's fastest is a bit cliche, we can't resist news about a new bar being set.
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.
Samsung announced a new SATA SSD that mentioned having DDR4! On further research, I realized these storage solutions are like a mini-computer. The controller, RAM and NAND modules work together before communicating with the rest of the PC. The 860 Pro has minor performance improvements, but a 4 TB capacity!
Liquid Cooled usually indicates the image of water flowing over a block. Adata is actually using a method called phase change cooling, where a chemical boils at a low enough temperature to remove heat from the RAM modules. They named it project Jellyfish.
Patriot is releasing a new line of DDR4 memory with the Viper LED series. It comes in white and red LED options, but no RGB. They are also carefully selecting memory modules to help ensure greater compatibility, maximum performance, and the best overclocking headroom.
Worlds' Fastest...for now. Corsair takes the claim for a 4x8 GB DDR4 Memory kit at 4,333 MHz. It's important to realize that this is talking about four total sticks of RAM working at this speed. Two sticks are easier to push speeds than all four.
RGB lighting and white components go extremely well together. Rather than absorb the colors like dark colors do, white reflects the lighting nicely. Corsair is adding white heat spreaders to their Vengeance RGB DDR4 memory sticks. Add some white RAM to your build!
