Some users managed to overclock the memory to 3200 Mhz (with timings of 15), others did not dare to do this, leaving the bar to work at a frequency of 2666 Mhz.

The main disadvantage of memory modules that buyers noted is a high price.

RGB Lights not reliable
May 21, 2018 [Verified Purchase]
Color: RGB – Black Capacity: 16GB (2x8GB)Style: 2666MHz
I purchased this solely for the RGB capabilities. After 6 weeks, 1 stick was stuck on white. I restarted the computer, updated the software that controls it, physically uninstalled and reinstalled both sticks. Even switched the bank they were installed to ensure it was the RAM and not the mobo. Still was stuck on white. Now, after 2 weeks of being stuck on white, the RAM does not respond to any colors in either bank it is installed in. Good memory as long as you don’t want the lighting to work.

Great RAM Sticks for the Price
July 22, 2018 [Verified Purchase]
Color: RGB PRO – White, Capacity: 16GB (2x8GB), Frequency: 2666MHz
I got these sticks for $178 and that’s pretty cheap for a 2x8GB, even if you look at competitors and the non-RGB Corsair Vegeance RAM sticks. The RGB is beautiful as it looks like an endless waterfall of colors that would complete any RGB computer set. The sticks are matte white so they don’t blind your eyes with the brightness. These sticks are surprising bright. They’re the brightest piece in my computer and steal the spotlight with the millions of colors it produces. The only downside is: size. It is really tall. If you’re planning to use a radiator like I am(and do use) please review if your case has enough space between the RAM and the fans. I made the mistake of not checking and I ended up having the screw the radiator into the grill holes instead of the appropriate spots. They are overclockable(with my ASUS motherboard, unsure about others). These are great for the price, but are rather tall. Will add pictures when I can. I purchased both Black and White of 2x8GB of RAM.

Edit: the picture is blurry because my phone couldn’t focus on a specific color, following the light and not focusing.
