It is not very often that we can find a good set of white memory, usually it is ruined by a black or green PCB or comes with a significant price increase when compared to standard memory kits. Now with the recent influx of DDR4 kits in the market, we have managed to find some of the first white DDR4 hit the market, which is not only highly affordable, but also visually striking. 

At the price of £41.99 for a 2x4GB kit and £82.99 for a 2x8GB or 4x4GB kit it is also among some of the cheapest DDR4 kits on the market. Not bad for such a great looking piece of kit.

In recent months we have seen a great deal of white parts come into the PC market, from ASUS' affordable Z170-A Motherboard and KFA2's GTX 950 EXOC to higher end options like ASUS' Z170 Deluxe, Gigabyte's Z170X-Gaming and KFA2's GTX 980Ti HOF.

Below you can see it pictured with ASUS' Z170-Deluxe, a place where Crucial's White DDR4 looks right at home, so much so that this memory will more than likely be sitting there permanently as part of TTL's home server build.  

While it is currently only available in 2400MHz versions, this kit is still a solid performer, with speeds much higher than most DDR3 kits, while consuming much less power. With Standard DDR3 running at 1.35v-1.65v this kit's operating voltage of a mere 1.2v will ensure that this kit remains cool and consumes barely any power. 

 

 Features:
- Speeds start at 2400 MT/s
- Faster speeds and responsiveness than standard Crucial® DDR4 memory
- Ideal for gamers and performance enthusiasts
- Dual / Four channel memory architecture maximizes data rates
- Digital camo heat spreader available in white and gray
- Easy plug-and-play installation
- Intel® XMP 2.0 profiles for easy configuration
- Optimized for the latest Intel Z170 & X99 platforms
- Limited lifetime UK award winning warranty service.

Specification:
- 2400MHz (PC4-19200)
- CAS Timings: 16-16-16
- Voltage: 1.20v

Conclusion

As some of the first white DDR4 memory on the market we usually would expect to see this kit come with a hefty price premium, so finding this kit from Crucial coming at the low low price of 41.99 for a 2x4GB kit is simply amazing, especially given Crucial's quality brand and this memory's niche colour scheme.

If you want white memory in your build this memory is simply a no-brainer, coming in at a bargain price and without a ghastly green PCB. The speed of this memory may not be the highest out there, but that does mean that this DDR4 kit runs at low voltages and consumes very little power. 

This memory looks great, comes at an affordable price and at speeds which are by no means slow when compared to standard DDR3. Crucial have done a great job with this set of memory, ticking all appropriate boxes from, price to performance and even aesthetics, this kit is easily a set that we can recommend to any fans of white PCs out there.

The slightly dirty white would work ok with a Z170 Krait and HOF cards. The Deluxe looks too good for them really. White Savage needs to happen with black PCB's to brighten it. White can either severely cheapen things or really accentuate them as a quality product IMO, It really works on the Deluxe and Snow Silent PSU's both of which look really special in their own right. I wouldn't say the same thing about these or the new Krait stuff.
