    Looks like very nice show off RGB ram. It would be cool if it could be used like an EQ for sound/music.

    I wonder how costly it becomes to have all those RGB things together. Maybe it would be cheaper to get cheap monitor and just place its screen right under side panel glass.

    RGB lights on ram, woopty do.
    Are they as cool as make it go faster stripes on cars?
    PS Way too over priced. Also "GAMER" things are crap and are marketed in a way to increase the price purely based on appearance.

    Imo Corsair actually nailed the design. Those look absolutely great.

    But you go to their product page, the pricing is absurd for anything higher than 3000-3200CL15-16 for either 16GB or 32GB kits.

    16GB 3000C15-17-17-35 = €175
    16GB 3200C16-18-18-36 = €185

    16GB 3000C14-14-14-34 = €295
    16GB 3600C16-18-18-36 = €295
    16GB 4266C19 = €580? LOL (I paid ~€100 less for 32GB 4x8GB 4266C19 Tridz long time ago)
    16GB 4800C18-24-24-46 = €900?? LOL X2

    These look like the upgrade version of my ram Corsair Dominator 3466 CL16, Doesn't look like the extra 134mhz does much however which i guess is a shame, still with some tweaking these are nice

    I really like that deep matte black, even with RGB off, they'd look awesome. Definitely have these on my radar for a potential future build. :rolleyes:

    Timings arent that great, its like Corsair have given up on producing anything decent. You can take home 2 sets of Gskill Ripjaws 3600mhz 16-16-16-36 probably a lot cheaper minus the RGB but if your an RGB guy then hey no worries.

    It is hard to imagine anything as useless as this "RGB thing". But, I guess it is hopeless to fight against the "trends" dictated by cunning marketing experts. It's like with tattooing and piercing - nowadays, you just cannot find a normal looking woman, with a normal, natural skin - they all look like a slaughtered livestock, with branding/rubber stamping applied to their buttocks, bellies and backs...

    Well said! God forbid some people like "boring". At least those stupid FAST & FURIOUS days are over with ricer cars with 20 stickers and cheap aftermarket cosmetic parts lol.
