    Looks epic would be cool with other coloured plasma tubes like red and green

    You reckon its worth it for someone who has a NH-D15 and spends more time looking at the screen than in the case?

    Gimmickry sells. If they added small chrome tube exhausts that spewed out smoke or sparks it may even sell more.

    Looking ahead for the day when memory modules grow bigger than motherboards.

    I just had a thought; if you wanted to be eye-catchy, an interesting use would be with what someone mentioned, pairing these with cold cathode tubes in a case, right?

    Go a step further: get a clear acrylic case (you know the ones), cut recesses into the inside of the case for the cold cathode tubes, and fab pieces of bent acrylic tubes or get fiber lighting cables to touch the parts of these modules that light up and make em direct towards the edges of the case (you might need to cut more recesses for these.

    Bet that would be quite interesting in the dark, with your entire case flickering like that.

    I would never build something like that for myself, but if a client wants flashy, by Odin, I'll give it to him.

    I think that would be an obvious sign of technology as a whole heading in the wrong direction.

    for modding its seems cool idea

    but as soon i read the plasma tubes, what comes into my mind first is, how long those tubes lasts?
    i dont think it LED based source and afaik there not much light source that have lifetime as long as LED (there are some, but those are not cheap if price into count)

    now most memory have lifetime warranty
    and recall from failed "plasma tubes" will covered in warranty?

    Haters gonna hate right? Why even post man? Seriously? Guys that like to show off their rigs buy stuff like this. Why even post man? Seriously? I have Tracer memory in mine that is blue and it looks awesome! I think the new memory looks cool,I'd buy it.

    This is just as ridiculous as the SLI bridges with lights on them that cost $30+.

    I bet these will sell real well to the Apple fanbois though as they also go for form over function.

    Merriam-Webster def. of forum:

    b : a public meeting place for open discussion
    c : a medium (as a newspaper or online service) of open discussion or expression of ideas.


    I do not 'hate' this product, just expressing my view that 'form over function' does not apply well to anything which is for the most part hidden. And it is a gimmick. Its main selling point is something totally unrelated to its purpose or function. If you like bling and glitter applied to things, I have no problem with that. Buy it and enjoy it. :nerd:

    Because what my ram look like matters to me??, then i guess people that stare at the inside of their pc instead of using might eat this up, but i never saw the point to any of the stuff, much like LED fan lights.

    Personally I've been using Ballistix Tracers for years, not just for the looks but the fact that the LED's show when my ram is being accessed I find a visual indication is really useful but not sure about tubes, as someone else mentioned how long do they last? And more importantly how do they behave? if it's just a visual effect that's on all the time then I won't have much use for them but if they respond like my tracers then I may be interested.
