Conclusion

...the star of the show is the new crystal-like light bar that's unique in the industry.

G.Skill is upping the ante for premium system memory with the release of the Trident Z Royal memory line.

Having bright, even RGB has been done before, while the use of the established 'Z' heatspreader will surprise no one, though what's new is interesting.

Now adopting a mirror finish for either gold or silver aluminium heatspreaders, the star of the show is the new crystal-like light bar that's unique in the industry.

The bold design is sure to elicit love and loathing in equal measure. Appreciating the pricing is competitive and the kits are available in a wide range of speeds and timings, should the colour theme of your build support it, the Trident Z Royal modules make for an intriguing choice.

They also do a silver version of these that don't look so out of place inside a build ;)
Didn't we already have a thread on these?
Like all PC components I prefer my RAM to be monogrammed

“You may think that having an all-new PCB and heatspreader design, together with a never-before-seen light diffuser, would cause pricing to spiral. That's not the case as our gold review modules, constituting a 16GB (2x8GB) pack of DDR4-3,200 memory (F4-3200C16D-16GTRG) costs £200, or about par for the RGB course of this kind of memory.”

The non-'Royal' G.Skill Trident Z RGB with identical speeds and timings is £160 on ebuyer so, uh, it isn't on par.
