Last updated on September 21st, 2023 at 08:31 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.

TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan DDR5 6000MT/s

TeamGroup T-Force Vulcan α DDR5-6000 is an obvious budget match for AMD Ryzen 7000. We like the compact heat spreaders that stand a mere 30mm above your motherboard. This makes it dead easy to install the largest possible AIO cooler in the roof of your case where clearance is often very tight.

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.

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.
