Building a great gaming PC isn’t just about getting the right parts. You also need parts that look awesome through that transparent side—and for that, we recommend a generous dose of RGB lighting. Today, Amazon is selling a 16GB 3,600MHz Crucial Ballistix RAM kit with RGB for $96Remove non-product link, down from $110. The kit features two 8GB modules, eye-catching RGB lighting on the top, and white heat spreaders. That’s a pretty solid deal given the ongoing global chip shortage.
Crucial’s RAM features eight lighting zones on each stick with 16 RGB LEDs. The lights are compatible with a number of RGB lighting utilities, including Asus Aura, MSI Mystic Light, and more. Crucial says the lightbar is removable, allowing you to add your own custom 3D-printed design if you really want to max out the customization.
To hit the speeds that this RAM is capable of, you need to enable XMP in your motherboard’s BIOS; otherwise, it will sit at stock speeds. If you aren’t familiar with the one-click process for speeding up your RAM, check out our tutorial on how to enable XMP.
