These TridentZ modules not only feature full RGB illumination and enthusiast-grade, blistering-fast memory frequencies, but also tout tighter CL timings. G.SKILL has announced two memory kits with impressive speed and timings: a 16GB kit (8GB x 2) with 4266MHz with CL19-19-19-39, and a 32GB kit (8GB x 4) for enthusiast overclockers that hits DDR4-4133MHz at CL19-21-21-41 timings.

 

"Extremely high frequency memory kits often are achieved at the sacrifice of unsightly CL timings. Not anymore! With a more streamlined and efficient CL19-19-19-39 timing memory kit at 4266MHz, the limits have been increased under the latest 7th Gen Intel Core processor."

 

The non-RGB 16GB TridentZ DDR4-4266 RAM kits are now available on NewEgg for $229.
