Unfortunately, at the time of writing, we didn’t have accurate pricing information for this memory kit. It’s due to be revealed officially at CES 2019, and we’ll be there at the show bringing you the latest information. Then again, a kit of this speed and configuration is typically between £250-£350, with the addition of a water block that’s typically another £40, and the RGB hub, maybe another £20. We could guess at £350-400 safely enough.
A memory kit like this is pretty much the remit of the enthusiast PC builder. For your day-to-day consumer, a standard set of memory will more than do everything you need from your system. For those who aren’t pushing high overclockers, and not running a savagely tuned high-performance system, stock memory speeds and cooling are enough. However, once you leap down the rabbit hole of custom loop cooling, RGB lighting, and overclocking, then all bets are off.
This is the strongest aspect of the new Thermaltake memory. Ironically, the memory is actually quite bland, with a black on black PCB and heat spreader design. Personally, I like that as it is, even without the water block. Some modern gaming RAM designs are just so outlandishly garish that I think it takes away from the rest of your build. These are clean, simple, and very well made. The thick heatspreaders are robust and I like that.
However, throw that water block on the top, and well, who cares what’s under it! It’s all out of sight at this point, and the focus shifts to the RGB lighting on the block, and the quality of the tubing you’ve installed. If that’s important to you, then this is the kit to get.
OK, so this memory didn’t hit super high clocks, but that’s fine. It’s marketed as a 3200 MHz kit, and that’s all it needs to do. However, we got it to a respectable 3600 MHz with relatively simple tweaking. Perhaps your CPU/Motherboard combo will allow you to get it higher, but it’s such a dice roll on how much each kit will overclock; the variables are extensive. If you want higher speeds, buy a higher rated kit. Of course, 3200MHz and 3600 MHz are both still great speeds for a 32GB kit anyway.
I can honestly see this proving to be a big hit. It comes with four memory modules, all the cables you require, the RGB hub, the custom loop block, and it’s all pretty easy to put together. If you’re looking to expand your current loop or build a new one, it’s nice to get all the extra bits in one box. If the price is right, Thermaltake could be onto a winner here.
