Question Looking for faster RAM with RGB


Sep 27, 2016
Hey All,

I recently transferred my PC into a CoolerMaster H500M case and I'm looking for some RAM with RGB that would compliment the overall look of my build and give the case more.. "flow". The upgrade is primarily for aesthetics alone but I figure if I'm going to be investing in more RAM, I may as well get something that's a little more powerful than what I currently have.

My mobo manual says I can take up to 3866+ RAM but that is only on a single module? so I'm thinking of going with 3600 RAM (with ability to OC).. Right now I currently have 16gb of RAM but would like to bump that up to at least 32gb. I'm unsure if its best to go with 4x8gb or 2x16gb and even moreso, what would be compatible with my current setup..

I was looking at a few options from G.Skill that looked pretty nice.. Would something like this be ideal?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I apologize in advance for any slow responses as I'm not on this site everyday and try to reply when I get an email notification.
