Here are some of the first pictures of GeIL EVO-X memory with its HILM (hybrid independent light module) active. GeIL essentially split the module into two PCBs, one being the more expensive, multi-layer DIMM PCB, and the other being a fewer-layered PCB holding the RGB LED lighting, with its independent power input. That's right, EVO-X is one of the first memory modules that don't use DIMM voltage to power lighting. They instead feature a tiny power input on the lighting PCB, which draws power from any vacant USB 2.0 header you may have on your motherboard (and also interfacing with your OS to let you configure the color. The EVO-X is available in reasonably high speeds such as DDR4-3866, and in densities of up to 8 GB per module.
