I don't want to pay the current prices on ram so I am going to reuse this minimal kit from my backup Pentium G4400 build with my 8700k until ram prices come back down.
Im also getting a new M.2 525 Gb MX300 to use as my boot drive with this board, however Im stuck waiting for the case I want for it to arrive in stock, meanwhile Im having fun with my also new GTX 1080 Ti paired with my G4400 in the meantime and running every benchmark I possibly can on it for science.
One thing though that I thought after installing this ram on this board with how perfect it matches is wouldnt it be great if I could get the same heatspreaders on a higher spec kit and with RGB LEDs? I havnt checked if such ram is available, but say if I could get 2x16 Gb of at least 3200 Mhz but with these same heatspreaders plus RGB LEDs I would be all over getting that for this build, except just not at the current prices since I can use this kit for now.
Re: Look at how nice my old Ballistix ram matches my new modern Z370 motherboard

This is almost like deja vu, I originally signed up here because I wanted Ballistix tracers with LEDs, and now I want some again! I still havnt had ram with lights yet, but currently its becoming more common, but these darn prices atm
