HyperX Predator DDR4 RGB with IR can do a wireless light show

If you're going for a real razzle-dazzle cosmetic build with all the bells, whistles, and blinkenlights, you simply can't skip the RGB LED-lit RAM these days—you might as well just cut an empty hole in your motherboard. But keeping all the lights in sync can be a pain in the joint of your choosing. HyperX's latest Predator DDR4 RGB memory with IR tech might offer a solution.

The lights on these sticks are powered directly by the DIMM slot, meaning you don't need any extra cables to get them going. The sticks use infrared signals to sync the lighting with each other and don't need a separate, clunky manual controller. Better yet, HyperX says the lighting is designed to work with Asus' Aura Sync, Gigabyte's RGB Fusion, and MSI's Mystic Light software.

HyperX hasn't talked pricing just yet, but since RGB LED memory is currently going for upwards of $100 per 8 GB stick, you can get a good idea of how many pennies you're going to need to shovel to afford these. HyperX says we can look forward to the Predator DDR4 RGB memory with IR in the second quarter of this year.

    Now I’m waiting for the IR blaster app that lets me control my TV through my RAM sticks.

    To each their own, but I’m glad I grew out of my “light up my PC” phase in my teens.

      I like at least a little bit of light to be able to see the motherboard through the side panel window. There’s something magical about having complex moving images and scenes showing up on the monitor and being able to look at the completely motionless circuits actually creating them. It’s two diametric sides of the same coin.

    I’m so sad that there is market for that kind of things 🙁
