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.

You aren't exactly supposed to be able to see RAM in the first place.

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.

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.
