Wow.

Not going to lie here, ive only been building PC's for 7 years but i have never even considered using kingston ram in any of my builds. Not because of reliability, but i just never see them as a practical value proposition. Usually Corsair, Gskill, patriot...most other rams have cost less at the same spec. The same was true of their SSD's and flash storage...

Well i guess its not about the looks when ur all about prformance. But still enthusiast like both looks and prformance. The new corsair platinum is gorgeous. I dont knw what thwyre thingking. Finding pc parts is like eating food, you eat with your eyes first if doesnt look good will you even taste it? U look at a pc part if it looks good u look at the specs

I'll admit that i will ignore any ram that doesn't go with my other components (if i have a red motherboard, i have to get either red ram or black) , only time i wont is if there is a good deal on ram. However, most companies tend to produce ram with the same specs as other, but in different colors. I know corsair has red, blue, black, and a yellowish of similar ram.

I have some Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600 RAM here. The color is OK with me and it's performance is ~just like~ some other memory that I use. (GSKill Ripjaws and Mushkin Redline) They all just work.

If you have four of them in your PC and want a great looking Blue Aluminum RAM Cooler, the Kingston cooler is friggin' sweet looking.

Just saying,........

eunoia:
but I'm guessing the 2666MHz ain't cheap

And it may not be a good ~bang for the buck~ decision either.

My 2133MHz RAM isn't much faster (in real life usage) than my 1600MHz is. I'd rather spend my money on a better graphics card or an SSD.
