If you needed high-performance DDR4 RAM kits at Computex—whether low-latency, high-capacity, high-speed, or all of the above—G.Skill's booth at Computex had it all.

This 4500 MT/s Trident Z kit was the fastest in G.Skill's booth. I seem to recall you'll need this particular ASRock motherboard to go with it if you want out-of-the-box support.

This 64GB, 3600 MT/s kit is ready to push way past Broadwell-E CPUs' DDR4-2400 stock speeds.

This 128GB DDR4-3200 kit offers high speed, high capacity, and low latency all at once.

This 128GB DDR4-3466 kit offers even more speed at the expense of higher latency.

Chop the DDR4-3466 kit above in half, knock down the latency some, and you get 64GB of memory that's perfect for filling the four RAM slots on most Z170 boards with.

If you need to go north of 4000 MT/s, the 4500 MT/s kit we led off with isn't your only option from G.Skill. The company also offers a 4133 MT/s kit, as seen above... a 4266 MT/s kit. The 1.4V rating on the kit above puts it in the domain of extreme overclockers only.

So yeah. If you need RAM, G.Skill probably has a kit with the specs you need in the style and color you want, no matter how esoteric or demanding your requirements are.

The company fronted its booth with a giant stage for pro overclockers to test their mettle. You can read about some of the records that were set at the event here.

In Win
Some of the wildest cases at Computex made an appearance in In Win's booth. There's something to be said for utilitarian black monoliths, but In Win isn't afraid to walk on the wild side. These cases aren't just flashy coats of paint on cheap underpinnings, either. I was consistently impressed with how solid-feeling these cases were every time I got my hands on one.

The company's D-Frame 2.0 case is a limited-edition chassis that'll be produced in a very small run (500 units, if I recall correctly). This gold-finished beauty is constructed much like a high-quality bicycle frame.

Each D-Frame 2.0 will come with a custom-made 1065W power supply that's been designed specifically for this case. That power supply grille alone probably has more metal in it than some sub-$100 cases out there.

The X-Frame 2.0, on the other hand, is sort of like a test bench taken to the extreme. The motherboard tray on this "case" can sit horizontally or stand on end, depending on the builder's mood.

Like the D-Frame 2.0 above, this case will come with its own exclusive In Win power supply.

The 805 Infinity is one of the more ingenious cases we saw on the show floor this year. It uses a mirrored front panel to simulate the effect familiar to anybody who's ever stood between a parallel set of the things, but In Win doen't use this effect to stretch the system inside to infinity. Instead, it makes the case appear like an RGB-LED-lined void.

In Win apparently had a hand in the making of the case for the ROG Avalon, too. Given how hefty and high-quality the Avalon's outer panels are, it was unsurprising to find out the company was behind the shell of this concept system.
