    They look beautiful, however I would never buy RAM based on looks as I don't bother to have window in my case.

    My problem is a lot of the high end stuff does compete on appearance and RGB. I resent paying the extra for the R&D and the cost of the spangles.

    I really don't want my PC to look like a vagazzle (?spelling?) inside.

    Are RAM prices on the way back up or is this just weirdly terrible value?

    Seeing 32GB of Corsair's own Vengance Pro RGB 3200CL16 for £155 on scan and thinking it's the latter.

    Got the one's before these with the single white LED. RGB is just too much now. But clocking the latencies on these are damn good.

    RGB is worth a tenner, twenty quid at absolute maximum. In the case of RAM, which is a 10cm strip of lights, trying to squeeze out this much of a premium is daft. But then premium priced products that are priced for the sake of it tend to draw their own crowd.

    Overclocking with 1.5V was suitably impressive
    Isn't this dangerously high for DDR4?
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Useful video regards ram speeds & timings and the massively diminishing returns that you see past 3200 CL16...still isn't worth the premium.

    The modules are reasonably pretty but I still prefer the G.Skill looks on that score & their RGB implementation, but each to their own there!

    I know this post has been up for a few days now, but what struck me about this was the gaming scores. Does fast RAM really matter? Look at the Civ scores for example. You'll not be able to notice any difference in your gameplay at all.

    Maybe Hexus should do a piece comparing different memory speeds in real world applications (not ADA) so us users can get a good feel for where to spend our money?
