HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB 32GB 3200MHz Memory

HyperX’s Predator DDR4 memory has been one of our personal favorites for its bulletproof performance coupled with its subtle yet aggressive styling. As you can imagine, we were quite eager to check out the updated version topped with glorious RGB lighting.  While memory was one of the first things in the computer world to get an illuminating facelift more than a decade ago, there has been one singular problem that has plagued it nearly from day one: the inability to reliably keep everything synchronized. Unless you have resource-hungry software working overtime in the background to keep your memory sticks synchronized, you end up with each module doing its own thing pretty quickly. HyperX’s Infrared Sync is the first and only cable-free hardware solution to this aesthetically annoying problem. Invisible infrared transmitters on each module sync it to the one next to it without unsightly cables or unreliable software. The lighting itself can be set according to your preferences with your favorite motherboard RGB software.

GeIL Super Luce RGB Sync 4133Mhz DDR4 Gaming Memory

GeIL’s Super Luce memory was one of the first LED-equipped memory modules to do something besides just light up. The iLuce Thermal-Beaming technology would indicate module temperature by varying the temp of the breathing effect of the lighting. A few years later GeIL added RGB for gaming aesthetics and made it controllable from many of the industries favorite RGB control software such as ASUS’s Aura Sync, Gigabyte’s RGB Fusion, and MSI’s Mystic Light Sync to seamlessly blend into the rest of your perfect gaming system. As processors increase and core count and more and more users demand every bit of performance out of their system, memory bandwidth has started to become a bottleneck. GeIL once again is getting ahead of the curve by upping memory speeds to a staggering 4133MHz out of the box. Does this extra speed get you anything? Let’s take it for a spin and see.
