Last updated on June 17th, 2022 at 09:20 am

From cheap and cheerful 8GB sticks that get the basic job done to top of the range, high frequency modules with RGB and even liquid cooling: KitGuru Labs tests tons of memory to the limit. Check out our shortlist, then make your selection.

G.SKILL Trident Z Royal

G.SKILL's Trident Z Royal memory is absolutely superb. Our 4000MHz C17 kit delivered excellent performance when ran at the preferential 3800MHz clock speed with 1900MHz CPU tie-in frequencies. In most cases, the 2x16GB set of dual-rank modules delivered chart-topping performance. And overclocking to 3800MHz 14-14-14 at 1.45V was another boost that we were very happy to see.

Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB (White) DDR4-3600MHz 32GB

Corsair recently launched a new version of the high-end Dominator Platinum RGB modules – this time with a white colour scheme for the heatspreaders and touches of gold for the fins. Sporting the same dozen Capellix RGB LEDs as the black Dominator Platinum RGB modules, we are looking at a 4x8GB kit with 3600C18 specifications.

Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB 5200MHz DDR5

Corsair's Dominator Platinum RGB memory modules represent a strong option for users who have already made the decision to go with DDR5. Performance in situations heavily tied to memory bandwidth - such as 7-Zip compression - absolutely flies. And in games and other tests, the Dominator sticks repeatedly outperform the poorer latency (and cheaper) Fury Beast 5200MHz CL40 sticks from Kingston.

G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB 32GB 6000MHz

There’s a lot to like from the G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5 kit. Out-of-the-box performance is solid in applications that will take advantage of a strong mix between 6000MHz memory frequency and tight – 36-36-36 – timings; 7-Zip file compression is the perfect example there, and gaming performance is also a little improved versus a 5200MHz C36 competitor.
