gskill-trident-z-rgb-32gb-ddr4-3600By Thomas Soderstrom @ Tom’s Hardware

I’m not much for long product names, but Trident Z RGB doesn’t seem too excessive. Add the DDR4-3600 to it, and it’s getting slightly lengthy. Oh, and there’s the CAS 16 rating. Fortunately, G.Skill makes its model numbers a little easier to read than many of its competitors, as the “4” stands for DDR4, 3600 is the data rate, C16 is the latency, the Q means quad-DIMM, 32 is the gigabytes of capacity, and GTZ is the style. Unfortunately, R stands for RGB on its black-and-gray heat spreaders, where G.Skill uses the same letter on other modules to denote the color red. And with that, model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR is born. So much for the decoder ring. On to the details.

All the way back in June, Crucial – the consumer arm of semiconductor giant Micron – announced their Ballistix Elite DDR4 memory modules. These sticks boasted fairly standard speeds of DDR4-2666 and DDR4-3000, but what really caught our eye were the heat spreaders. Frankly, they were sleekest and most badass heat spreaders that we had ever seen, and combined with the black PCB it made for an unusually eye-catching stick of RAM. Not only that, these modules featured built-in thermal sensors that allowed for real-time temperature monitoring via a custom Ballistix utility. A fast, great-looking memory module with sensors and its own utility? Sign us up!

corsair-vengeance-lpx-ddr4-2666-memoryBy Thomas Soderstrom @ Tom’s Hardware

With Kingston’s almost-value-priced DDR4-3000 barely able to overclock past its rating, I began to wonder if a lower-rated part from an overclocking-focused brand might be a little more flexible. Corsair’s Vengeance LPX looks the part, particularly in its CMK16GX4M4A2666C15R (that last R is for Red) limited edition. It’s cheaper than Kingston’s parts, and if it can match them in an overclock, we just might find a top enthusiast value.

hyperx-predator-ddr4-memoryBy Kenny @ PureOC

Today we have the chance to take a look at the HyperX Predator series DDR4 memory line. DDR4 memory launched with Intel’s recent X99 Chipset featuring lower voltage with higher native frequencies. It features a native speed of 2133MHz, which is really nothing to WOW about as we have seen these speeds with DDR3. However, with its newer JEDEC Culmination and Density, DDR4 memory components now provide better speeds and faster response while being more power efficient at the same time.

The HyperX Predator memory we are going to be looking at today not only offers fast speeds of 3000MHz out of the box, but also offers the efficiency of lower voltage; we can see some great potential with additional performance once overclocked. We will be comparing results from Kingston’s (HyperX) previous line up from its DDR3 series to see if these claims line up.

If you consider yourself an enthusiast and have been building computers for years you’ve like certainly heard of heard of Corsair. Corsair started out building enthusiast memory kits and have become known as one of, if not the very best, markers of all things DRAM. When Intel released the X99 Platform it also introduced of DDR4 memory and Corsair was right there on launch day with dozens of different kits of DDR4 memory. Corsair currently has 16 different DDR4 memory kits available in the mainstream Vengeance overclocking line and also the high-end Dominator Platinum series. Today we’ll be taking a closer look at what Corsair has to offer in the Dominator Platinum series. This series features hand-screened DDR4 IC’s, DHX (Dual-path Heat Exchange) heat spreaders, Dominator Airflow Platinum LED fans and the Corsair Link interface that allows you to monitor IC temperatures, voltages along with the fan speeds and colors if you are running the fans.

adata-xpg-v3-3100mhz-ddr3-memoryWritten By: Dan Stoltz @ Legit Reviews

Gone are the days of being on the cutting edge of memory with DDR3 running at 2133MHz! These days running 2133MHz memory is pretty much considered the norm for a high end gaming rig. If you’re looking to be on the bleeding edge of memory speeds you’re going to be limited to only one or two kits. Today we have one of the fastest kits available on the market to put through the paces, the ADATA XPG V3 DDR3 3100MHz 8GB memory kit. The ADATA XPG 3100MHz 8GB DDR3 memory kit is sold under part number AX3U3100W4G12-DBV-RG and is definitely for those building a killer rig without budget concerns as the XPG 3100MHz memory kit is currently retailing for only $869.99.
