Design

You might be doubtful about the design of the new Trident Z Royal series memory modules. Specially, if you haven't seen one in person. But no problem, i have seen them.

And Let me assure you that that:

I just bought these modules only because of its beauty. And I found the pros and cons later.

I firmly believe that:

Trident Z Royal series memory modules are made for the next level beautification for your Gaming PCs. You just can't take your eyes off it while they are glowing. Just kidding. But  honestly, I will say that, these are the best looking RAM I have seen so far.

Z-Royal-Ram-Design

I mean, What can you ignore? Every single thing looks Damn gorgeous starting from the heat sink to the RGB illuminated crystal like cover.

The new heat sinks of this RAM are made of glossy finished metals and they look stunning when they reflect the RGB lights. 

These gorgeous looking memory modules come with two color variants: Gold and Silver.

The best thing you will notice in a second:

Is the crystal like illuminating part under which there are addressable RGB LEDs. The RGB illuminated part continuously changes colors and gives a beautiful Rainbow-like effect at default settings.

The New Heat Sinks for Faster Cooling

The new heat sinks are mainly designed for better cooling performance and stunning looks.

I mostly like the glossy finishing of it as it shines under RGB lighting of the PC. These heat sinks are made for highly overclocking incompatibilities.

You might be wondering:

But, what these heat sinks are made of?

The heat sinks of these memory modules are of completely newly designed and the alloy of metal body of the heat sinks are mostly comprised of Aluminium. So, it's both attractive and effective for performance.

All New Gorgeous RGB Illumination

The Royal series RAM of Trident Z has got a better illuminating design than its predecessor. The new design of the crystal like plastic makes the RGB illuminations more beautiful. 

You will get Heart-Shaped eyes: 

Seeing the beauty of these glittering jewellry like memory modules inside your PC.

Under the illuminating body there are 8 LED zones for controlling the light’s color separately.

The good thing is, the LEDs are addressable as a result, perfect rainbow effect and many other cool moving lighting effect can be made with it

You can control the RGB effect of these LEDs by G.skill's official software Trident Z RGB control.

One problem, that is:

For now, this RAM support only Aura Sync by which  you can control RGB effects if you have an Aura Sync supported ASUS motherboard.

Hopefully these memory modules will support the other softwares too in future.

Performance

first of all you need to know that:

The new design isn't the most attractive of these memory modules. The most attractive part of these RAM are features, it's high speed overclocking abilities  and it's great performance .

I am sure that:

You have never heard of a Ram which is rated to 4600 MHz before this one.

And this is not the last limit of speed you can go up to.You can overclock it to and insane amount of speed.

You will be amazed to know that:

I myself have overclocked my 4000 MHz kit to 4400 MHz.

Technical Specifications

The Royal series RAM of trident z comes in 16GB to 128GB kits having up to 4600Mhz speed.

These are one of the best performing DDR4 memory modules until now.

These are the available type of kits in the market:

There is no doubt that:

More speed of Ram= More performance.

But you need to know that how much  speed is your required to get your satisfactory performance.

So, for most users i will recommend to get a 8GB x2 / 8GB x4 kits of 3200MHz/ 4000MHz /4400MHz modules as these are enough for most applications and can handle most tasks easily.

Overclocking  and XMP Supports

First of all this memory modules support XMP 2.0(Extreme Memory Profile 2.0) which will let you overclock the RAM very easily.

If you aren't familiar with XMP then i will say that:

It is the most easiest way to overclock a ram without any further thinking. Everything is set to a decent setting and you just need to active the Extreme Memory Profile from the bios to overclock your Ram.

Want to know the best part?

You can also overclock the Ram with custom speeds and voltages. You can also set the clocks as you need to get the perfect speed out of these memory modules.
