HyperX Predator RGB DDR4-2933 16GB Memory Kit Review

It seems like every memory company is now offering RGB modules and HyperX is now one of them releasing their first ever RGB kit in their Predator DDR4 RGB. This kit comes with an updated heatspreader design, of course RGB lighting, and one very special feature that you won't find on other RGB kits. That special feature comes in the form of IR channels built into each module. These ensure that the RGB lighting effects don't get out of sync, by allowing the modules to "talk to each other". We were actually shown how this works at CES earlier this year. Today we are checking out the HX429C15PB3AK2/16 kit, which is a 16GB (2x 8GB) kit running at 2933 MHz with timings of 15-17-17-39 at 1.35V. Let's see how this kit stacks up against other RGB kits we've reviewed recently.

Ballistix Tactical Tracer RGB DDR4-2666 32GB Memory Kit Review

One of the first ever memory kits with LEDs on them I had the chance to experience was a Ballistix Tactical Tracer kit. LEDs really changed things up with memory adding so much more style than your typical heatspreaders. Now we are seeing so many RGB LED memory kits it might be hard to choose between different brands. The Tactical Tracer RGB is the first RGB kit from Ballistix and I have to say they are some of the best-looking modules I’ve seen. Today we are taking a look at the BLT4K8G4D26BFT4K kit which is a 32GB (4 x 8GB) kit running at 2666 MHz with timings of 16-18-18-38 at 1.2V. Ballistix also has their own M.O.D. Utility which allows you to customize the RGB LEDs as well as see the temperature of each individual module. Can this kit dethrone the G.SKILL Trident Z RGB as our favorite RGB memory kit? Read on as we find out!
