ADATA's new XPG SPECTRIX D40 RGB DDR4 kit comes in speeds of between 2400MHz and 4000MHz, making it perfect for your new enthusiast/high-end gaming PC, including the new X299 chipset from Intel. SPECTRIX D40 adds in that RGB awesome sauce on top of the DDR4 RAM being available at up to 4000MHz, making it perfect for those who need it super-fast, but not want to lose out on looks.

The XPG team worked with Intel to make sure the new SPECTRIX D40 was ready for X299, with the SPECTRIX D40 SPD (serial presence detect) settings work with Intel XMP 2.0, making sure that the RAM is running at their intended clock speeds, and not lower due to no XMP 2.0 support. ADATA has also used 10-layer PCBs, two ounces of pure copper and heat sinks made from aluminum alloy. This isn't a half-baked DDR4 kit, that's for sure.

You can also use the new ADATA XPG SPECTRIX D40 with ASUS Aura Sync, lightning up your entire system (if you have the right parts) beautifully.
