Because memory chips are usually produced by a handful of manufacturers the quality and colour of the heatspreader is a much greater factor when choosing which memory to equip in your system.
The fine folks at Avexir have taken this to heart and provide an enormous range to choose from, including custom colours and LEDs. Their latest Blitz range in particular is tailored to specific products, and the version we have to look at today is aimed at the MSI Gaming Dragon range.
Regular readers will know how much we like the performance and aesthetics of the MSI Gaming range, so to be able to complete the look with some matching RAM is almost too good to be true. As you can see it perfectly apes the MSI colour scheme and design, meaning it is likely to find a home in many systems, given the extraordinary popularity of the MSI motherboards.
There are two dual-channel kits available, a 1600MHz CAS9 model in either 8GB or 16GB capacity, and a 1866MHz CAS11 kit in 8 or 16GB.
|Model Number||Speed||Capacity||Timings||Voltage||LED Colour|
So if it looks that good on its own, of course we have to demonstrate it on a MSI motherboard. The LEDs breathe, which is something that tends to divide opinion. We feel that as the LEDs aren't searchlight intensity it actually just provides a nice focal point.
As well as MSI Gaming options there are ones to match the MSI MPOWER range, and the Asrock OC Formula. Whatever you requirements you're sure to find a model that fits your needs.
Thanks to MSI for supplying the Blitz Gaming Dragon RAM for us to drool over. Let us know your thoughts in our forums.
