The Corsair DOMINATOR Platinum Series 32GB uses the best of today’s available integrated circuits to provide highly overclockable and personalized memory via upgradeable light bars, and a Dominator Airflow LED fan. For the inevitable question, yes, the fan does come with this kit. It is compatibility tested and optimized to work with the XMP 2.0 standard supported by Intel 100 Series-based motherboards. It also offers things like greater bandwidth, higher frequencies, and lower power consumption.
For the budget conscious gamer, the HyperX FURY Black 16GB is a perfect match. Developed by one of the earliest manufacturers in memory, Kingston presents an option that is not the lowest priced, but one that keeps the price in mind without sacrificing quality. It is available in the most moderate DDR4 speed of 2133 megahertz, but higher speeds are not always a make or break for improved PC gaming.
The G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB kit is a 288 pin model with 32 GB worth of memory storage capacity. As the newest dual channel DDR4 and available in five color options, this device is the latest addition to the Ripjaws family. It is the second generation of the company’s DDR4 memory, and it is clear that they took heed of the criticism and feedback from their clientele.
The G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB features the noteworthy Trident Z heatspreader combined with bold RGB LED lights housed in a completely uncovered light bar. If you’re searching for visual fulfillment, the Trident Z is the RAM to go with. It combines uncompromising performance with its lighting supporting a full rainbow spectrum in color. Even better, it is built of the highest quality components.
The Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB is designed for high performance overclocking and is compatible with both Intel 100 and Intel X99 motherboards. This kit is part of the Vengeance LPX series, which continues where the previous DDR3 Vengeance series ended. Made of pure anodized aluminum, the low-profile heat spreader dissipates heat very quickly while an eight-layer printed circuit board provides superior overclocking headroom and heat management.
Quite honestly unless you want bling’ RGB lighting (G.SKILL TridentZ RGB) we go for the budget option (Kingston HyperX Fury Black) when it comes to RAM in a gaming machine, yes it memory matters – but just so long it’s stable and not causing bottle necking there are better places to spend your cash like a better GPU or even CPU, or a upgrade your visuals with a 144Hz monitor.
