This RAM is amazing!! The color is really accurate with the Aura software and is really bright and vivid!!
I have the 3200MHz RAM with a CAS latency of 16. I haven't played with overclocking but since I was coming from 16gb of DDR3 RAM I'm pretty happy with this huge bump.
When installed on an Asus Maximus IX Code with a Kraken X62 AIO cooler the tubing from the cooler will push up against the closest DIMM if all four slots are populated. It isn't enough to affect that closest slot so it all fits, albeit tightly.
The RGB effect does come at a premium compared to the more standard TridentZ RAM, so if RGB isn't your thing then I suggest going with the less expensive versions. If you have an RGB theme or just like the option of adjusting colors in your case to fit your mood, this is definitely the RAM to have!
Most beautiful RAM I have ever laid eyes on ... but freaking expensive and the lighting control is still very buggy which is why I knocked off 1 star. Performs up to expectation.
Looking for some good high speed RAM for the Ryzen, and these looked the part. Can't get them to overclock above 2400 so far, but hopefully AMD / ASUS sort the issues out before long. Not a fan of buying FlareX / AMD spec'd RAM, lower speed for the same price.
1) Looks great
2) Price is reasonable for what it is
1) Overclocking with AMD is very immature, and unknown how it will pan out
2) Synching with Aura is a bit flakey, hopefully will stabilise
Looks fantastic and is plenty fast! Also comes with a limited lifetime warranty which is also great. Adds a lot to the cool RGB look for any computers doing that as well.
Looks great but Asus Aura software sucks and freezes when changing colors. G. Skill software works fine though.
One word: Beautiful.
Stunning RGB effects.
3200 MHz? Check. Acceptable CAS? Check. Pretty lights? Check. Only reason it's not 5 stars? Issues with lighting, which I also dinged the motherboard for. For the performance you get out of this part, the relatively low cost, and the pretty lights, I would recommend this to anyone looking to build a RGB rig.
Hands down THE BEST implementation of RGB on RAM I have ever seen period. I love them and they hit their rated speeds no problem whatsoever. They truly are the center piece to any build that includes them!
Really enjoying the ram. Was able to get it to its advertised speeds through xmp profile and like the 5 individual lighting nodes which allows for awesome rgb combinations.
