Those are the top of the line RGB dimms though, for all the folks with plexi/open cases

Call me an old man, but I hate how all high end computer parts are RGB now. I don't want my PC lighting up the room. And a lot of the time you need to install proprietary software that often is buggy to shut that garbage off.

That said, this seems pretty expensive. Maybe not for these sticks that have plastic diamonds on them, but you can get a better deal on a 16 gig kit with the same speed and similar timings for less.

Have you seen all the different options for what you can make that ram do? They're just fun.

Don't get me wrong... I like RGB, but for my keyboard / mouse haha. Maybe I just don't care about my case as often.

Honestly I shelled out several hundred dollars extra for my RGB build (figured it's time to jump on the bandwagon) and as pretty as it is, I keep all lighting off most of the time. The only time I turn the lights on is to show it off to someone who hasn't seen it before. Plus, buggy software, compatibility with different pinouts from different standards.... It's a hot mess.

Because you're divorced and your ex is coming for your money so you gotta burn it fast.

Good thing that most motherboard, RAM, GPU etc manufacturers always have a model or two that are cheaper with the same functionality sans the RGB.

I am kind of middle of the road on it. I keep my RAM, case fans, case, etc all RGB free. I usually will have one or at the max two components with some lighting on them. Usually the heatsink and motherboard. It's stylish without looking tacky.

My favorite personal style are components as black as possible with an RGB heatsink to give it a slight glow. Looks good.

Wonderful thing about the pc industry today is all the different options. Not sure why different choices are looked at as a bad thing.

I think these things look farkin bad ass! As tacky as RGB has gotten, these are way over the top to where I think it's so hilarious that I actually like them lol. I already have a set of the non royal Trident Z's... might pick these up as well lol
