PNY XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB 32GB 3600MHz DDR4 Memory Review

PNY has over 30 years of experience in the memory market, so it’s fair to say that they really know what they’re doing! As a brand, they’ve often been associated with some pretty extreme and high-end solutions, both for gaming and professional hardware. With that in mind, today, I’ll be taking a look at their latest gaming memory! However, rather than just being from PNY, it comes from their gaming-focused sub-brand “XLR8” which is pronounced “accelerate”, obviously. So PNY’s maturity and knowledge, but acting cool with its baseball cap on sideways and some RGB shades… sounds good to me!


The new (PNY) XLR8 Gaming EPIC-X RGB does sound like it’s trying pretty hard to be cool with the buzz words here. However, it’s ticking all the right boxes for the modern PC gaming enthusiast. Blacked out aluminium heat spreaders, extensive RGB lighting customisation, a wide range of available speeds and capacities, overclocking support, and well… that’s really all we need. Plus, I’m lucky here, as I got the 3600 MHZ 32GB (2 x 16GB) kit, which is literally the fastest and biggest kit in this range, so the performance should be pretty fantastic. For those of you who dig your RGB, you’ll be glad to hear there are no external cables required, and it’ll work with Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome Sync software; it may work with others, but these are at least varified.
