G.Skill is the first manufacturer to succeed in implementing RGB lighting into the RAM which we can recommend without any reservations. Up until now, there were flaws in the implementation of the lighting such as separate cables for each module or the software which did not function fully. The decision to adapt the Aura Sync gives it an edge, although we hope to see compatibility with other motherboard manufacturers’ software in the future.
The overclocking options are very good, as we would expect from the Trident Z range. The maximum overclocking speed of 4133 MHz at CL14 was not the new high score in the test, but is proof that the Samsung B-die guarantee excellent overclocking results none the less.
We do not have to mention that the DDR4-3600 RAM with great timings is expensive. For this set-up of 32GB you pay about 400 pounds / 450 euros, and the 16GB in two sticks costs 215 pounds / 240 euros and compared to the same memory with no lighting, the added value of working RGB lighting is acceptable at about 13 pounds / 15 euros. The conclusion is that the Trident Z RGB also receives the Ultimate Product Award, same as the version without the RGB lights and that as a RAM enthusiast, you will be very happy with this as your choice.
