The RAM modules feature an RGB light strip that allows for various lighting effects and doesn't require any additional power connections.

For PC enthusiasts who like to add a bit of flair to their device, RGB lighting has been a welcome addition to the myriad of components and peripherals now supporting the feature. We've seen RGB options in laptops like the Razer Blade and Aorus X5 v6 as well as desktop components. From keyboards and mice to fans and water coolers, users have their choice of components equipped with RGB lights. G.SKILL hopes to further expand these options with their new Trident Z RGB series, which they tout as the “world’s most revolutionary RGB lighting DDR4 memory kit.”

The Trident Z RGB modules feature an exposed light bar along the top of each stick. This light requires “no additional power connectors” and can be customized through software or left on the default setting, which “will display a rainbow of colors in a wave-style lighting effect.” In addition to RGB accents, the RAM should have solid performance; G.SKILL states because the Trident Z modules are “designed with a custom 10-layer PCB and hand-picked IC chips to enhance overclocking performance, the Trident Z RGB series is capable of reaching speeds of DDR4-4266MHz.” The RAM offers “full support for XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking and simple BIOS setup” and is “covered under a limited lifetime warranty.”

The Trident Z RGB series should be available worldwide in the middle of next month. Users will have to wait a bit for full customization, as the software won’t be available to download until February.
