When Thermaltake first introduced their TOUGHRAM memory I was a huge fan. It really is hard to come up with a heatspreader design that is different from others and they did that. Then of course they came out with an RGB version, the TOUGHRAM RGB. Now it seems we are on the second generation of TOUGHRAM RGB with the TOUGHRAM XG RGB, which brings with it a whole new heatspreader and RGB design with a total of 16 RGB LEDs per kit! Today we will be taking a look at the R016D408GX2-4000C19A which is a 16GB (8GBx2) kit running at 4000 MHz with timings of 19-23-23-42 at 1.35V. Is this the RGB kit you need for your next build? Read on as we find out!

The TOUGHRAM XG RGB comes in a nice retail package. On the front we have a picture of the memory itself and it lets us know the capacity as well as the speed. Thermaltake is offering TOUGHRAM XG RGB in 16GB kits ranging from 3600 MHz to 4600 MHz.
Flipping over to the back we have a list of features as well as the type of RGB software the memory is compatible with. Thermaltake offers their own RGB software, but the kit is also compatible with Gigabyte, ASUS, ASRock, MSI, and even Razer RGB software.
Opening the box up all we find inside is the memory in a typical clamshell package, but there is a thin piece of film protecting the glossy part of the memory.
