    Gigabyte Aorus RGB Memory now faster clocked, with more LEDs

    Second gen Aorus RGB 16GB 3600MHz kits (2x 8GB) also offer dummy module options.

    Uuuuu 12 LED's i only have 5 i think in my meager G skill RAM.
    And with 48GB installed i am only able to run it at 3300 MHZ as i cant bother with tweaking it further using the little "knobs" in bios.

    RGB DDR has been considerably more expensive in recent deals than non RGB. We can expect to see a lot more soon in the high end!

    That was not the case here, even with the first expensive kit i got, also it made no sense to only get DDR4-3200, so i went with the DDR4-3600.
    I am not sure if this are still the case now that prices have moderated them self a little.
    At first i even dident want RGB, but i figured no one force you to have it on, so RGB was not ruled out.

    "users can activate the Memory Boost function and boost their memory frequencies to 3733 MHz without tweaking the timing,"

    does that hold only for this ram or can it work on others?

    You always have some headroom on ram too, this is what overclockers tap into to boost their system.
    Though i have always used enthusiast RAM, but all have been able to run faster than SPEC, maybe not a whole lot, and that's part of overclocking fun to find out how much you can do and still maintain a stable system.
    My current system though i run the RAM lower than its SPEC speed of 3600 MHZ, that number i could only do with 15 and 32 GB or RAM, adding 16 GB more to put me at 48 GB mean i had to run it slower as the CPU cant handle that speed with that much RAM.
    Its also why overclocking in serious are only done with modest amounts of RAM.
    I have tried to run my RAM around 3400 MHZ but that's just too much and the computer boot with a lower fallback RAM speed.
    But 3300 MHZ it have done for a week or 2 now with no issues what so ever.

    Of course some times you get a lot further if you relax the timing numbers a little, but this need a lot of trial and error to see what numbers change work the best VS what speed you get out of that.
    So you go in and out of bios to make changes and then run benchmarks to see if / by how much things get better, and if the system can handle the load.

    I dident get around to see if my 3600 MHZ ram could go faster than that, i was happy running it at that speed as i don't really bother much with overclocking anymore.
    But i seem to recall tests of my RAM taking them a bit over 3600 MHZ but i cant recall if that was with the stock timings and maybe only a slight voltage increase.

    Yeah once you start to get to very high memory frequencies, its starts to become more of a IMC issue than a dram issue. You need good dram (solvable by buying high freq kits i.e. 4000mhz+), and a good IMC (only solvable through binning). That's why Micron E-die does so well, although very few kits clock highly, it goes very easy on the IMC, and its a lot easier to bin DRAM than it is to bin CPUs.
