CES 2019 - Thermaltake debuts its first RAM modules with stylish flair and liquid-cooled performance.




Aimed at enthusiast gamers, Thermaltake's new WaterRam sports liquid-cooling to ensure longer memory life with lower operating temps, all with a splash of color. The memory comes in 8GB modules clocked in at DDR4-3200MHz with tight 16-18-18-38 timings and rated at 1.35V. The kits support Intel XMP 2.0 overclocking profiles and modules come in two 16GB (8GBx2) and 32GB (8GBx4) configurations. The WaterRam's RGB rocks 16.8 million colors with various profiles, and fits neatly into Thermaltake's fleet of radiant-lit hardware across its RGB Plus ecosystem.


The two-way liquid cooling array allows Thermaltake's WaterRam to maintain cool temps as low as 30C, and its higher-end copper water block and aluminum heat sink lets you choose between liquid cooling or conventional cooling.

Inno3D teases new iChill gaming RAM with RGBs

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Aug 13, 2018 3:02 am

Inno3D is better known for its custom GeForce graphics cards but now the company is stepping into a new market: gaming memory, in the form of their new iChill RAM.




The new high-end iChill RAM will be in capacities between 4-16GB and speeds of between 2400-4000MHz with an interesting heatspreader to keep it cool. A set of gaming RAM couldn't be complete without RGBs, with Inno3D giving its new iChill gaming RAM some RGBs to seal the deal.


Inno3D has explained its new iChill gaming memory: "The hatching product family will crawl out of its shell under the name i CHILL and will come in various capacities of 4GB up to 16GB at speeds of 2400MHz up to 4000MHz and with ultra-low latencies up to 15CL".

GIGABYTE to show off AORUS RGB RAM at Computex 2018

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Jun 4, 2018 2:39 am

Computex 2018 - GIGABYTE is reportedly set to unveil AORUS RGB memory because, well, why the hell not, right?




The company will be unveiling new 16GB kits at 3200MHz (2 x 8GB) powered by their RGB Fusion technology, so when mixed with an AORUS motherboard you're going to get RGB perfection.


The only issue here is that you'll be locked into AORUS with both the motherboard and RAM, so if you shifted to another motherboard manufacturer, you're not going to have a good time with this RAM. Hmm.

G.SKILL launch world's first DDR4-4700MHz RAM, sports RGB

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: RAM | Posted: Feb 6, 2018 1:31 am

G.SKILL has just unveiled the fastest DDR4 on the planet with their new Trident Z RGB kit coming at a blistering 4700MHz, one-upping the already record-fast 4600MHz kit, also made by G.SKILL.




The latest Trident Z RGB kit arrives in a 16GB (8GB x 2) kit packing Samsung's best DDR4 B-die ICs, and tighter timings of CL19-19-19-39 that require 1.45V. G.SKILL's previous Trident Z RGB 4600MHz kit would only work on Intel's latest X299 motherboards at the time, but the new 4700MHz kit will work on the new Z370 chipset from Intel.




G.SKILL hasn't said when their new 4700MHz DDR4 RAM will be available, but we should expect it sometime in Q2 2018.
