HP V8 RGB RAM 16GB DDR4 3600MHZ CL18

RAM has always been about three things, capacity, frequency and timings and even though that stands true even today there’s one more factor people tend to pay attention at, looks. Of course, this holds true primarily for gamers and modders but those two target audiences make up a very large segment of the market, one which memory manufacturers simply can’t afford to ignore. Unfortunately, that also means that certain manufacturers have shifted their focus mostly on looks rather than performance and so many end up with good looking RAM kits which are not quite as fast as the competition. With the V8 RGB 3600MHz 8GB DDR4 RAM modules HP aims to hit the sweet spot between performance and looks and today i have two of those with me.

The V8 RGB line of DDR4 RAM modules by HP (BIWIN is also behind these) sits right over their non-RGB V6 one and includes single and dual 8GB kits (8/16GB – according to the specs sheet there are also dual rank 16GB modules available but after taking a look online I’ve only found single rank 8GB ones) at 3000/3200/3466/3600MHz frequencies, timings as low as CL16 (3000/3200MHz CL16, 3466MHz CL17 and 3600MHz CL18) and voltages set at 1.35V (my sample also uses SK Hynix chips). As expected, the RGB LED bar placed on top of the diamond shaped wing aluminum heatspreaders is fully compatible with all the leading mainboard RGB sync technologies such as Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light and ASRock Polychrome (at the time of this review however HP doesn’t offer their very own control software). Last but not least HP covers the entire V8 RGB of RAM modules with a 5 year limited warranty. So, let’s see not only just how the V8 RGB 3600MHz 16GB kit performs but also how good it looks.
