What else to say than sexy! I'm always wondering why isn't tom's using these in the build contest? I'm using memory for ages from this company and none of them has gone ever wrong, but Adata and other stuff used in the build contest have gone wrong in the machines of some friends of mine.

[citation][nom]belardo[/nom]Anyone make any pink memory sticks? that would be cool. With memory in black, its rather hard to see, no?[/citation]
You aren't exactly supposed to be able to see RAM in the first place.

They could make them yellow with pink spots, they're still going to be under a heatspreader though.
Pointless.

Although it doesn't make any difference, I will always be partial to cool looking RAM. Maybe heat spreaders that change color with temperature so if you're overclocking it and you push to the limit, it would turn white hot. When it cools down, back to blue or black.

I want some without he heat spreaders. The black boards look nice and the spreaders don't make a huge difference if you have good ventilation.

It depends on the job. As rebel1280 pointed out, integrated graphics performance can be greatly affected by memory bandwidth.

For CPU performance, there are several tasks that can benefit form faster memory too. For example, compression/decompression, rendering, AVX workloads, some types of folding, and more all benefit from faster memory to a degree.
