Packaging, we show you everything my man -- we always start off with packaging so you know what to look for in the stores -- it's as simple as that really.

Here we have the DIMMs after unpacking. These are 8 GB 3000 MHz DIMMs in a kit of 4x DIMMs. nice design, cool that the PCB is black as most motherboards have a black PCB as well these days. Intel XMP version 2.0 if of course supported.

As you might have noticed from that sticker, this kit can manage latencies of 15-17-17-35 at 1.35 Volts, and that your normal latency for this type of memory alright. For optimal stability we do recommend you stick to the manufacturer suggested settings at default SPD or that preconfigured XMP profile.

We like the black PCB and the shiny heatspreader, styling wise (hey it matters in a high-end cool looking rig) this is a very tasteful kit as well as aesthetically wise.  In the top the RGB LEDs reside. You will not need to connect any wires, these feed of and over the DIMM slots. The kit is quad and dual-channel, you could opt for a dual-channel 16GB kit with two DIMMS of course. With expensive memory often come some extras.

Though a bit overkill for most of us, 32GB with four DIMMs does kinda rock - dat shizzel iz sick yo'. These days in a PC we recommend 8GB as default minimum, 16GB for a little extra in your spicy gaming rig and 32GB  for the ones that use memory intensive applications / do memory intensive transcoding and/or content creation. If you pick therse 3000 MHz CL15 DIMMS you are looking at roughly 10 bucks per GB as investment.
