We managed to overclock the memory modules to DDR4-3333 @ 1.40V. I just bumped up the speed and increased the DRAM voltage. Simple!
Verdict and Conclusion
Let me first apologize for not mounting the Thermaltake WaterRAM RGB fully in to our custom loop. I’ll do that another day when I start building our next PC project build … but rest assured, you’ll see it in its full glory pretty soon with all the fittings and RGB lighting.
Having 2 modules under the memory waterblock looks kinda weird, so I would recommend getting the 32GB kit (4x8GB) over the 16GB kit (2x8GB). You can of course, use them the traditional way … without the waterblock mounted.
With that said, we move on to the thing that matters the most. Performance. And I have to say, it’s not bad … not bad at all. Check out the previous page for full benchmarks.
And of course, one of the main features of the Thermaltake WaterRam is the RGB lighting with 12 high lumens addressable LEDs offering up to 16.8m colors. It is supported by TT RGB PLUS software, Amazon Alexa voice service, and Razer Chroma lighting. What’s more, if you have a motherboards that features a 5V addressable RGB header, then it can be controlled by ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome.
For overclocking, we managed to overclock these modules to DDR4-3333 (1667 MHz). It’s not a massive overclock, but an overclock nevertheless. With a full custom loop fitted, I think you can actually overclock them further.
Not everyone is in to RGB, and even less so for those in to custom watercooling. It will be difficult for Thermaltake to capture this very niche market, and to satisfy all those finicky enthusiasts when it comes to memory. To them, they would probably prefer to get the memory kits and waterblock separately.
However having said that, this is the first memory product that I’ve seen that offers all of the above, in one simple-to-install package. So well done to Thermaltake for that.
- DDR4-3200 speeds
- Memory timings 16-18-18-38
- RGB waterblock with standard G 1/4 thread
- Nice heat spreaders
- Compatible with all motherboard RGB ecosystems
- Haven’t thought of any yet.
The Thermaltake WaterRam RGB is not everyone’s cup of tea. But if you’re like me who loves RGB and to want to watercool your ram, then these are memory kits you want. With all things considered and for the performance of the ram … we’ll give it our recommendation.
