Very nice look, but can we control the LEDs yet? Thought I saw a review where the light show was fixed based on activity, and you couldn't change that? With ram that sexy, they should at least have an "always on" option.

Went off LED's on memory quite some time ago, I personally prefer the LPX styling, Stealthy and clean looking

I like the look of these, just think LEDs on memory is meh. I got LEDs from my AIO and GPU already. Adding more just would make it look off.

According to another review, they flash based on memory activity, and ONLY that. Great looking ram, but not being able to control the LEDS kinda defeats the purpose.

Yup, especially not being solid light

Anyone else that knows any 4 x 16GB ( 64GB ) blue led ram?

I agree with you guys, would much prefer a solid or programmable LED. I do like the styling though

I had a look at these over at the Corsair web page today, looking for my new build.. i am too put off buying them due to them not being controllable in Link.

Which i feel is a shame because other than that they are good looking Ram sticks and would match my color scheme perfectly, but the Leds flashing at random cycles would make my OCDs twitch Its either static or OFF for me.
