I wish if there were more pictures or a video, but love these colors. A question I would like to know, any MB/CPU supports the 4,266MHz speed?

Not any motherboard will support memory speeds above 2133MHz (the DDR4 standard). To use the XMP profile and hit the 4266MHz, a Z170 or X99 (or soon a Z270) platform is required. H110, B150 and H170 motherboards don't support higher frequencies via XMP. Some of the higher-clocked memory kits also need a better CPU, with some recommending a Core i7 processor to achieve the desired speed.

Without full specifications from G.Skill, I'm afraid I can't speak to these particular kits of RAM past those few assumptions. But I'll update this article soon as G.Skill gives us something solid to report.

Thanks for reading!

does it require external power like Geil RGB sticks? external power connections make RGB pointless imo because all those wires ruin the aesthetic.

Thank you :)

Now I am sure I will get these instead of Corsair RGB ones.




Thank you, as all MB I saw they maxed at 3.4k OC so I was wondering if any MB supports that speed.

Love all the comments on this as if G.Skill is going to come to their house and force them to use RGB lighting.

Don't like it? That's totally fine! Just don't buy it.
 



i always have a laugh at comments like these. like it is a crime to make a negative comment on a product and then someone plays the "they are not forcing you to buy it" card like they have stock in the company

Have you seen the replies on literally any RGB product on this site? They're not "well the lights seem superfluous". They're "OH MY GOD, RGB IS KILLING THE INDUSTRY, WHAT A WASTE OF A GOOD PRODUCT."
