G.Skill decks out its Trident Z RAM with five new color options

G.Skill's Trident Z memory kits are already favorites of ours for systems where plain-Jane memory just wouldn't do the rest of the PC justice, but the bright red accents on that memory don't look good with every motherboard or component. The company is fixing that today with five new color schemes for these DIMMs.

Silver-and-white, silver-and-black, black-and-white, black-and-yellow, and black-and-orange color schemes are now available on certain Trident Z kits. The original two-tone aluminum-and-red Trident Z modules will stick around, too. All of the new color schemes will be available on the full range of Trident Z DDR4-3200 kits, while the company's DDR4-3300, DDR4-3333, DDR4-3400, and DDR4-3466 kits only get the black-and-white, silver-and-black, and silver-and-white treatments for now.

G.Skill says this Trident Z RAM will be available at the end of this month. We've asked the company whether these new color schemes will add any extra to the prices of these kits, and we'll update this post if we hear back.

    definitely not red! because color matters when you’re running away from AMD!

    Now just let me buy the bars to add to the black and silver RAM I already have!

    Though having color options is already awesome.

    I gotta say, TR’s news articles since Scott and the Gang left one by one have been… um, er..

      What, re worded manufacturer’s press releases not what you want in hardware news?

      Either that, or perhaps not many manufacturers are announcing stuff the day that Nvidia is revealing Pascal graphics cards.

      You think the content is worse than “article about new RAM” elsewhere? (´・ω・`)

    The only thing they are missing is black heat spreaders with BLUE tops. Time to mount another suggestion campaign!

    Where’s the no-colour option that removes the stupid decorative metal and allows you to use all the DIMM slots without fouling your cooler?

      That was the nice thing about their TridentZ DDR3 sticks. You could remove the fins.

      The decision to make this color choice is great! I share your thoughts in a slightly different way. As a water cooler, I have always wondered why high end RAM is not available without heat spreaders so one can use water cooling without voiding the warranty.

    That orange and black would be nice on an [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157675<]AsRock Z170 board[/url<]

    Black/yellow and silver/black for me.

      Do you have an [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157649<]OC Formula mobo?[/url<]

        No. Speaking for the DIMMs in a vacuum.

    • ronch

    I still think red racing stripes make for faster DIMMs.

      • Redocbew

      Surely yellow or orange are not as fast as red.

    • DrCR

    They also have a blacker than black model with 11-11-11-11 timings.

      That sounds like something that I would read in cards against humanity.

        • DrCR

        I contacted them, asking them how much blacker it could be. Their response was none more black.

          It’s so black it just stole your bike.
