Memory prices are finally back in a reasonable range, and there is no shortage of affordable high-performance DDR4 kits to choose from. That's why Mushkin went old school with the new Redline DDR4 3200 MHz kit. A bright red heat spreader and eye catching profile combined with a reasonable price tag make the Mushkin Redline a great choice for the RGB LED averse that still want a little spice in their build.

Ballistix is now offering their Sport AT memory in speeds of up to 3200 MHz and densities of up to 16 GB per stick. At CL16, the timings are decent, too. Is "Sport" just nomenclature or can this kit truly compete?

Memory overclocking has a significant impact on performance of AMD Ryzen-powered machines, but the alleged complexity of memory tweaking on this platform, largely fueled by misinformation and lack of documentation, has kept some enthusiasts away from it. We want to change this.

If you got a DDR4-supporting laptop, or perhaps a mITX system that requires DDR4 SODIMMs with 2666 MHz support out of the box, you don't have that many options today. Team Group's T-Force Vulcan Gaming Series of DDR4 SODIMMs come ready for that and more.

Kingston's HyperX Predator series of DDR4 RGB memory takes the traditional HyperX treatment to DDR4 and adds RGB, the HyperX way. These enthusiast-grade DDR4 DIMMs feature a pretty decent CL15 timing at their rated 2933 MHz speed, so not only do they look good, they offer low latency, too.

So you've got a nice shiny mITX X299 board and need some nice new DIMMs? Look no further! I've got a kit here with a base spec of 2666 MHz (that means no XMP needed), making it the perfect match for your new i9 CPU's default speeds, or with a CPU overclock (since memory overclocking affects CPU overclocking at times on this platform).
