Stunning in all the right ways (A review on the G.Skill Trident Z RGB)

Our Testing

We decided that we needed to see this for our own eyes and got us the 32 GB kit of two 16 GB sticks. Out of the box, it feels sleek and gives off the finished look with its RGB on top. We decided to hook it up to a Gigabyte Aorus X470 Gaming 7 motherboard to get the most out of its overclocking capabilities. It is good to mention now that G.Skill has a limited lifetime warranty on all of their RAM until they stop manufacturing the RAM in question. It ran smoothly with little to no problems even with overclocking it.

Don’t just take our word for it. On newegg, the product has an average of 4 eggs overall with the lowest rating for it being 3 eggs. 

Pros: – The Asus AiSuite3 software automatically detected the timing profile and configured it to run at 3200 Mhz as advertised. Or just go to the BIOS and turn on XMP. I’ve had my system running stable at this clock speed for over 2 weeks. 
– Beautiful RGB as everyone expects.
– It’s cheaper than buying the 8 GB module (4 x 8), leaving room to upgrade to 64 GB.
Cons: – Nothing to complain.
Other Thoughts: Recommend to anyone who just want to turn on XMP in the BIOS and be done with it at 3200 Mhz.
