We’ve seen so many different types of RGB memory, but only a few companies have really made their modules stand out. It is nice to see that ADATA has done something a little different that does make their modules stand out in the large crowd of RGB modules. The unique heatspreader, diffuser, and the amount of RGB lighting on these modules really makes them stand out in your system. ADATA does have its own RGB software, but these modules are also compatible with all major motherboard RGB software so you can match them with the lighting on your motherboard and other RGB elements in your build. Like most RGB memory modules these will get out of sync pretty quickly.
Besides just the RGB lighting the modules performed quite well compared to other RGB kits that we’ve tested recently. At the stock XMP profile the kit runs at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-18-18 at 1.35V, but we were able to bring the kit up to 3600 MHz without having to change the timings or voltage, which is pretty impressive.
For those wondering about the heatspreader or lack there of one really, while it is odd to not have a true heatspreader we did not have any issues with heat or anything else during our testing.
Right now this memory kit is selling at our favorite online retailer for $89.99, which is pretty affordable for a 16GB RGB kit. If you are looking for an RGB kit that stands out and has pretty good performance as well this is the kit for you. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ADATA XPG Spectrix D60G DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score.
