Cheap Ram - Massive Overclock
Hi All,

I bought some cheap ram of amazon to max out my X299 board (8x16gb).
Couldnt really justify blowing a 1k Euros on a corsair RGB blingy blingy kit so I opted for some Komputerbay DDR4 2666Mhz PC4-21300 DIMM 2Rx8 CL19 1.2v.

Green PCB is sickly, and they are so rubbish that they dont even have XMP profile, there is also a space on the pcb for an ECC chip but maybe they didnt make the grade to become ECC or were surplus supply.


Anyways, got these buggers up to 3733mhz CL19 @ 1.4v , yes all 8 x 16GB.

All for the price of 100euros per kit of 2 sticks = Grand Total of 400 euros for 128GB

So now my question : How can I bling them up a bit , they really do look awfull when I look through my tempered glass window :( ?

Cheap option


Middle ground


Expensive, non RGB, beautifully made version


I have both the medium and XSPC.

Bum bleeding option, two of these.

BTW do note the middle ground are so well made that Antec slapped their logo on and called them theirs. I put Aquacomputer logos over mine.

Other notes. I've got two sets of "up here" fans and I'm very impressed by them.

Or if your not a fan of RGB perhaps something like


or place some dark film on the tempered glass. :D

Do the modules get hot with the OC? Also can probably add your own XMP by writing to the SPD once happy.

I paid $65CDN for a Barrow memory block kit, RGB, comes with a dinky little Chinese controller, but if you have half a brain, you can find / wire an Aura / Fusion / Mystic Light cable to your mobo. No regrets. Two of these would set you back less than 100 pounds (or whatever ~$130CDN is in your currency). Bling bling!

you could always find some failed RAM and use the heat plates of them

@Thanos, they dont seem hot to the touch...

Thanks for the input, gonna go with these , less than 2 euros a piece and blue, should reflect nicely in my case :

I would get a 3d printed shroud to cover all 4 rather on each side than individual sticks getting a heatsink on them.

You could make a nice breathable box cover for both sides.
