As we’ve said before 2017 seems to be the year of RGB, almost all parts of our PC’s now come with RGB options. One of the first company’s to come out with RGB memory was GeIL. Their EVO X DDR4 kits really pushed the envelope and many other memory makers followed suit. While this kits are a little older they are still a great choice when adding RGB lighting to the inside of your case and their performance is quite good as well. Today we will be checking out the GEX416GB3200C16DC kit which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit operating at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V.

Well all this hype around AMD’s ThreadRipper processors and X399 platform it seems one major issue has been reported. ThreadRipper processors of course feature full 64-lane PCI-Express gen 3.0 root complexes, which allow you to run two graphics cards at full x16 bandwidth and drop in other devices like PCI-Express NVMe SSDs. It looks like if you plan on striping these NVMe SSDs in RAID and booting from them it will not be possible, the platform lacks NVMe RAID booting support.
