Apacer Unveils BLADE FIRE DDR4 Memory Kits With Pulsing LEDs
John Williamson / 3 years ago
Intel’s latest LGA1151 chipset has brought DDR4 memory into the mainstream market and is no longer exclusive to the expensive X99 platform. This means, it’s possible to acquire extremely fast and large capacity kits at a very reasonable price point. As a result, DDR3 memory is slowly being phased out but this is obviously going to take some time until consumers make the switch and upgrade their hardware. In the last couple of years, memory companies have created a number of ostentatious designs to compliment a system’s colour scheme. This can involve pulsating LEDs, unusual heatspreaders and more! The first company to really open my eyes to this new design philosophy is Avexir with the gorgeous Sabranco DIMMs featuring a white PCB.
Today, another leading memory company, Apacer, unveiled their latest DDR4 series which utilizes a striking design. The BLADE FIRE DDR4 kits sport a heartbeat LED pulsing at 44 beats per minute. Additionally, clock speeds will go up to 32GB 3200MHz with a low voltage rating of 1.35V and timings of 16-16-18-38. I’m quite fond of the memory’s style and it should fit perfectly alongside a wide range of custom builds. Sadly, there’s no information yet regarding the pricing or availability. Although, I’m presuming this should be revealed extremely soon.
Hopefully, we should be able to receive a sample and analyse the memory’s overclocking prowess! As with any DDR4 kit, consumers tend to fixate on either memory speed or just choose a kit which suits their personal taste. The BLADE FIRE is certainly one of the nicest designs I’ve seen and I’m sure it looks even better in person. It’s also great to see a black PCB as it contrasts so well with the black heatspreaders.
While some users prefer a more subtle styling, other consumers really enjoy extravagant designs which act as a talking point.
