With all of the hype around DDR5 it seems like DDR4 has taken a back seat, but DDR4 is still very widely used and will be supported on Intel’s next-generation platform as well. There are still plenty of great DDR4 kits out there and today we are taking a look at PNY’s latest in their XLR8 Rev RGB kit. Based on the name this kit will of course have RGB lighting, but we will be taking a look at the MD16GK2D4360018X2RGB kit which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit running at 3600 MHz with timings of 18-20-20-40 at 1.35V. Is this the DDR4 kit you need? Read on as we find out!
The XLR8 REV RGB comes in PNY’s typical retail packaging. On the front we have a picture of the modules and it lets us know the capacity, speed, and motherboard RGB software it is compatible with.
Flipping over to the back there is a list of specifications and information on the warranty.
Opening the box up you’ll find your two modules protected inside of clamshell style packaging.
