G.SKILL Trident Z RGB Review

Packaging & Product

The packaging is clean with a sleek image of the product showing off the colourful RGB lighting, there is also a small window showing off the product too, giving a look at the sleek, brushed aluminium headsink. At the bottom there is clear indication of support for ASUS Aura Sync and support for Intel CPUs.

The reverise side shows the specifications of the particular memory kit, along with an overview of the Trident Z series.

This quad-channel kit will sit nicely in your X299 system, though there is no reason why users couldn't also use this with a X399 system instead.

The heatsinks are fairly thick, and are attached by thermal adhesive, with a small lip overhanging on the LED bar to hold it in place.

The heatsinks measure 44mm high, which isn't super tall, but some CPU coolers may not be compatible.

The RGB lighting is very vibrant and the bar on top acts as a diffuser, spreading and mixing the colours fluidly. As the Trident Z RGB is compatible with ASUS Aura Sync, there are some advanced effects available, however, if you do not have an ASUS motherboard, you can download the software from G.SKILL to enable custom effects, however, be warned that it may conflict with other LED control APPs.
