When you have a kit called the Trident Z Royal Elite one would hope that the packaging is a bit more of an event than the plastic blister packs or cardboard boxes we usually see, and sure enough G.Skill have pushed the boat out. The lines surrounding the logo on the front resemble the crystal effect lighting on the RAM itself.

When you have a kit which comes in a mirror finish you'll want to take all the effort possible to eliminate fingerprints and to this end G.Skill supply you with a branded cloth and the all important sticker to show off your taste and sophistication in component choice.

Why open a cardboard box and tip the RAM out when you can have your precious sticks of high speed DDR4 in perfect foam cutouts? Exactly. If you're keen on a sense of theatre when you open your boxes then this is perfect.

Although the Royal Elite is available in gold we're not sure that works with many systems. The silver finish though is perfect for reflecting lights in your case and generally fitting in with the silver and black theme a lot of systems have.

A quick demonstration of the type of reflectivity the Royal Elite heatsink can offer. We know it might be slightly divisive, but we're big fans of the aesthetics. The heatsink matches the "crystal" effect lighting. Even if our eye is more drawn towards that mouth-watering promise of the 4000C14 sticker.

Lastly the RGB lighting is fed through a crystal finish and it is, again, something that is likely to divide the audience, especially when powered off, but we are here to tell you that when the lighting is pumping it looks spectacular. Very clear and bright.

I think that would be going too far

Might as well encrust the case with Swarovski diamondsQuote
