Thermaltake Aims to Become a Major Enthusiast Memory Player, ToughRAM RGB Tip of its Spear

Thermaltake aspires to be a major enthusiast-segment PC memory vendor, and brought several new models of its ToughRAM RGB memory modules to the 2020 International CES. These modules are characterized by chunky aluminium heatspreaders, and an RGB LED diffuser crowning the modules. There are also some chrome accents that make to the distinct "TT" company logo. There's also the standard ToughRAM that replaces the RGB diffuser with a block of silvery aluminium. At CES we spotted new high-frequency variants, with the ToughRAM series now spanning DDR4-4400, DDR4-4266, DDR4-4000, DDR4-3600, and DDR4-3200 in standard ToughRAM and its RGB variants.

The ToughRAM RGB White Edition comes in DDR4-4400, DDR4-4266, and DDR4-4000 speeds, and in 8 GB module densities making up 16 GB dual-channel kits. Common to both lines are high-bin DRAM chips, 10-layer PCBs with 2 oz copper layers, 10 µ-thick gold electroplated contacts, and the ToughRAM software application that provides temperature, frequency, and timing monitoring; alongside the TT RGB Plus software that lets you play with colors on the ToughRAM RGB models. We also spotted the liquid-cooled WaterRAM from last year.

The white case RGB version is kinda ugly. Wish they used the black / grey version. Would be much more tasteful. It works for white builds but that's about it imo..

Why on earth would I buy overpriced sticks where the company logo sticks out like an advertisement?

They should pay me instead.

The article says nothing about timings, which leads me to think they’re not gonna be up to par with other “enthusiast” memory kits like G.Skill.

not enthusiast kits in my book,
another of those timetec-NON-hynix and all that amazon generic fud, with a "slight" chance of ram/data/ info corruption.
BTW, prices for the small companies ram which are non-proffessional, are very close to reputable ram kits like samsung, g-skill, corsair, kingston etc.

Why are those ram heatsinks so thick?
Completely no airflow between each ram stick.
How are these ram sticks aimed for enthusiasts?

Wat? I can't even slide a sheet of paper between my sticks g.skill nor the corsair sticks that they replaced. What make/model are these magical "thin" sticks you speak of?
