Avexir Unveils RAIDEN Series High-end DDR3 Memory with Lightning Tubes

Boutique memory modules designer Avexir unveiled its flagship DDR3 memory module, the RAIDEN. This double-height module features a plasma tube on its top, which lights up with a blue lightning-effect, which could look awesome in cyberpunk case-mods. The module could pair particularly well with ASUS Z97 Sabertooth Mark S, ASUS X99 series, and MSI Krait series motherboards.

Form aside, the module has some pretty formidable specs - an 8-layer main PCB, XMP profiles of up to DDR3-2400 MHz, a machined aluminium heatsink drawing heat away from the DRAM chips, and hand-binned DRAM chips for the best overclocked performance. The RAIDEN comes in speeds of DDR3-1866 and DDR3-2400, densities of 4 GB and 8 GB, and in dual- and quad-channel kits that are combinations of the two top-level specs. Avexir didn't reveal pricing or availability.

I feel in the future years RAM will start to sag like GPU

Good catch. They probably pictured that using their DDR4 RAIDEN (coming soon).

Probably they should consider selling the heatsinks alone in various colors.

They hang a different direction. Most RAM I have ever seen are aligned vertically (except on servers), so no sag problem.

Interesting,....

Well it looks nice and all but it serves no real functional purpose other then ornamental so I wouldn't spend one red cent extra for it. I'll use a term I've used before to describe such things, "The lightning stripe painted on the outside does NOT make it go faster".

These ram sticks are a fancy giant heatsinks worst enemy.

This RAM seems to have a polarizing effect on people. They either really like it or they hate it. I really like it. I think it looks sharp but I have an affinity for blue.

I'm completely ambivalent, but I certainly wouldn't spend extra for ram-bling. LOL

yeah, they look like something stuck in the grill of a high-schooler's 98 Honda Civic, along with a giant wing an soup can sized exhaust. Having these basically screams "I have no taste!"

Looks nice.. I guess. Different color schemes maybe? But, I'll be sticking with my Dominator Plats.
