This is some of the ugliest RGB RAM I've ever seen. "extra adaptive 'awesomeness' " - their marketing team could use a little help, as well.

I miss the days when such design was a thing...

Plain, simple, tasteful.

If I really wanted RGB effects on my ram Id put a fansink or waterblock that has it built in. Bet anything you cant put your own cooling on any of this ram with rgb

You can still buy plenty of nice looking non-rgb kits atm, trident z looks so dope...

So true.. But so glad I picked up mine when I did.. Shame it's been about 2 years until I used it.. So glad I never sold it as I'd be kicking myself now!!

I have that kit. It does have that classic, sleek and serious look. Looks like something that's meant to last and perform. And always look good. That's why I bought it.

Ram is like a nice belt, or a good pair of shoes. Do you wanna be that guy who wears blaring neon shoes and holographic belts? I don't.

Don't get me wrong, RGB is fine when it isn't overdone. Looks cool as a subtle accent. But if your mobo is RGB, and your cooler is RGB, and you've got RGB strips, and your fans are RGB, and now even your RAM is RGB... ...just kind of becomes a mess of things all fighting to be the center of attention. I dunno maybe it's just me but I feel like RAM isn't supposed to be a focal point. Not everything needs to be flashy.

Maybe it’s just me but I feel like lights shouldn’t be inside PCs period unless it’s LEDs for error codes

I felt that way for a while. I still don't like it a lot of the time. Most of my experience building PC's was in a time when even acrylic windows were just catching on. And I thought they were tacky then. You may have had an LED fan or cathodes... ...but it wasn't so common. You had to want the look to get it. Good opaque cases were much easier to find, and you weren't going to be able to buy a pre-built with a clear side panel and lights. You may find a few that have an optional clear side panel. And past that, even the good innards generally didn't look "pretty." They looked more like they meant business... ...like actual internal organs, not something you usually see.

Some folks like it flashy, while others like their machines to look like machines... ...as in, things that do work. I can appreciate the latter more immediately, myself. That's what I grew up seeing. That's a real PC to me, whereas RGB can easily make your rig look like a light-up action figure... ...or maybe something from Spencer Gifts. It's sometimes a little like putting oversized, blinged-out rims and underglow on a classic muscle car. A travesty. It gets tacky. It can look cheap, which is funny because it's very expensive. And now it's everywhere, whether you want it or not. Everybody seems to want their builds to stand out, but now they all look the same anyway, and you pay for that...

It's all a matter of taste. I see both sides of it. I think whatever you do should have some thought behind it. If you use RGB, don't just throw it over everything with 20000 colors all cycling around. Pick an accent or two and make it special. If you want to show off, make it something worth showing off. And whether you go for style or not, make sure the performance is cashing the checks. Anybody who would look at a powerful machine with no flashy RGB or window and think that's not a damned fine build best ask themselves why they're building PC's to begin with. That's something almost more worth showing off... ...and definitely leaves more to talk about than pretty lights.


I don't get the fixation either way. It's not about RGB, is it? Whether you're for it or against it, a PC exists to carry out tasks. And if it does that very well, parts are well-spec'd/balanced, and it's been assembled with care, it's a good build. Just saying, I'm more likely to care about how it benches and what the real-world picture looks like than whether it has RGB or not. Good build's a good build, taste aside.

There's one thing that really bothers me about RGB - more on principle than anything else... ...you are basically taking money that could go into better performance and throwing it into something with no practical benefit. Sometimes you pay quite a lot more... ...enough to upgrade pretty much anything else. I look at these blinged-out party-machines and can't help but wonder what it would have had behind the panel if all of that RGB money went into better parts. It winds up looking more "high-end" to some, but actually it's less so than its "sleeper" counterpart in reality. Something about going in on that would really hurt me inside. I'd just be thinking about the CPU I could've had, or that extra 8gb of ram, or maybe even the next-tier GPU. o_O

Still, good build is a good build, even if I think you overpaid. I can understand the appeal to dazzling things up. I've got a tempered glass panel and a little bit of RGB, too. It's so prevalent that life is easier if you find something you can deal with and enjoy. These days it kinda just comes with the territory. Times we live in, but it's not so bad. I've grown on being able to look inside and have a subtle light source to show what's in there. I think it mostly just appeals to the kid in me, who used to pull his side panel off to look inside the case all of the time. I wonder what Freud would have to say about all this RGB madness...

Another minor point nobody mentions is the heat each LED adds to the system - although small, it adds up when you have a lot of LEDs, and adds to the load on your cooling system. I realized this back in the old days, before RGB (2014), when I put 96 blue LEDs around the inside of my window. You can't really feel the extra heat, but all temps are 1-2c higher when they're on. They use about 10-12 watts of 12v power, so that's another 10 watts of cooling you need to offset it. The green ones are the hottest - a green build I did was so hot the strips were curling up and coming loose, until I hot-glued them down.
Thanks for another one of your long, well thought out posts, they always entertain me and make me think.

A classic case of a company who hired only their friends and echo chamber, instead of more qualified resumes.

I hadn't even though about the temperature... ...I could see it adding up quick with small diodes carrying that kind of power. I mean, your typical household LED 60w equivalent runs at what? 9 watts? And those things can actually generate a significant amount of heat, to the point where they start to get a little hot to the touch. Maybe the two aren't directly comparable, but its not hard to see heat being a factor. And to think we have them slapped on heatsinks (though sometimes I wonder if that's intentional sabotage... with the design/placement choices along with doing things like putting stickers on top.)

Hah, I've long since accepted that I can't turn it off and have moved onto at least trying to make it worthwhile when I barge in somewhere and pop off a ton of words. Language as a tool for thought is really cool to me. It can easily get tiresome for some people, but I'm never very bored. I never run out of crap to toss around in my head and try to compile into words. I'm not all that smart, but I don't think like normal people. How I come off in writing is more or less the same as how I form thoughts internally... it's like an unrelenting barrage of interconnected thoughts flying through my head all day long. I'm constantly unpacking and organizing. At some point, I just start typing lol. I don't know why I'm like this - just never been very good at being brief because of it. I find it's easier to make a skill out of it than it is to change it and just become normal.

Even I get weirded out by how I can just ramble endlessly - it doesn't take a whole lot. But it serves a purpose. Regularly writing things out with a little intent behind it helps keep my cognition up and sometimes gives interesting results. It's always good to hear that I'm passing those some of those benefits on. Cheers, man.

That would explain a lot of things, such as why "Fryzen" is a thing.

That's something I always think about when I see things that are so obviously just... bad. "A group of people got together and thought this through. They purposefully brought this into the world." Nothing in the consumer market just happens. So many people are involved in the whole process - it takes time. And yet somehow we still wind up with things like this all of the time. If anybody involved came up with them entirely on their own, they'd probably think it was bad. But suddenly you get a bunch of people together on a bad idea and it becomes acceptable. Kinda scary, tbh.

And in most cases heatspreaders are simply useless, only for aesthetics.

...ultra low latencies up to 15CL...
There's much wrong with that statement. But what really rubs me the wrong way is the 15CL. Which is not a thing. CL15 is. The rest...well...whatever. I get your point.
