    I am planning to make a build with Asus Z390-i , i7 9700k , Scythe Big Shuriken 3.
    In some video reviews I saw that I can fit Corsair LPX under Big Shuriken 3, I also know that Gskill TridentZ are lower than Corsair RGB pro.
    Does Gskill TridentZ are same size as Corsair LPX or taller?

  4. Trevor says:

    G.Skill wins if it's got the B die then it's all good also it's hieght of 44mm allowing better vertical GPU room.

  5. probably time for a fresh one 😛 and i definitely suggest including the Antec KATANA argb 7 series

  6. watching this in 2020 is quite amusing

  7. Does anyone know if the gskill will work on my ga-ax370m-ds3h motherboard ? Please get back and respond.

    I totally screwed myself. Almost all the rest of my rgb is by corsair except my gskill trident z. Now I hafto use 2 programs and try and make them sorta match =/ looks like im buying some vengeance or dominator in the near future which kinda blows because the trident z looks so good.

    Adata xpg d60 is stunning

  10. Imma just say this, stick to your ballpark. If the decision is between aesthetics on otherwise identical sticks of ram, pick the brand or look you like most. If given the option between trident Z rgb and corsair vengeance pro rgb, assuming they are identical in specs, I choose corsair because I like corsair and that's my ballpark

    I got the trident and they would have to be the best to syncs up with aura and I turn can be synced up with razer from static to fiery and rainbow lots of sizes and speeds but you pay for it. I have 2 16gb 36000 and when I can I’ll be getting 2 more just to have the most rgb lighting I can for it plus the rgb light goes the full length. No plastic to hide most of it, just full lights

    I swear this guy says every sentence like he’s bringing us the direct word of God Almighty

  25. Cuzih says:

    People say they hate rgb and I love my fans , ram , gpu , motherboard and cpu fans to be white static to match my case and cables

  26. Yeah, RGB is pointless, but it makes your setup look so much cooler.
