Well, Canadian links. But it would be most helpful if we'd all simply up and go to Canada. That's taking into consideration that "up" is North, and would also help reduce latency.

Thomas there seems to be an issue reported earlier this month, see below:
3 out of 5 eggs
If only it met it's own specs

This review is from: Team T-Force / Night Hawk 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory (Desktop Memory) Model THBD416G3000HC16CDC01
Pros: - It booted up!
- Working at 2800 Mhz

Cons: - LED's on them are dull
- Won't actually work at 3000Mhz as advertised. Even when using XMP.

Other Thoughts: Setup:
Gigabyte GA-Z170X-Gaming 7
i7 6700K 4Ghz
16GB Team T-Force/Night Hawk DDR4 3000
Gigabyte Windforce NVidia GTX970

Manufacturer Response:
Hello,

We are so sorry to hear the problem you encountered with. Right now, we are using the same platform as yours to test on our RAM to find out the possible causes of this issue. We will let you know our test result and guide you to the next step.

Thank you for your patience.

I could only guess. Maybe he's having trouble running the 15x multiplier. I'd personally rather use DDR4-3200, but only because it uses 12x 4/3 x 100 and the lower multipliers work with more CPU samples. But then again, maybe the 4/3 memory controller ratio isn't ideal, performance wise...

I don't get why RAM with LEDs cost so much more. It probably costs them less than 10 cents to add lighting to them, as if you are going with a fixed color, you can literally just tap off one of the power rails on the RAM, and solder in an LED or 2, and then if needed, attach some plastic to them to diffuse the light a bit.

It's probably closer to $1, because they also need to have the new heatsinks and light covers manufactured, including the injection molds for the covers. But then there's the failure rate to consider, that adds cost as well.

by doing this does it take away from possable performance

No. The data rate limit is primarily due to the chips used on the modules.
