Dummy DDR4 Dim?

Marfe
 Share

So I just upgraded my GPU to a MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z from a MSI GTX 1060 3GB Aero ITX

 

Before I upgraded most of the time my the LED colors of my PC is just on static. But now after buying an RGB GPU I can't get enough of RGB!

 

I want to add RGB on my RAM. I don't want to upgrade it just want to add RGB to it (Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200mhz)

 

I planning to buy these RGB Heatsinks to add to my 8GBx2 memory but I want to do 4 dims.

 

Is there any dummy dims you know of or do you have an idea how can I mount the RGB heatsinks without the actually dim?

Stick a piece of cardboard in there/take a crappy DDR4 dim and sand off the contacts. 

 

Or you could.... you know.... buy more ram....

Will a DDR3 dim fit? Not sure if they are physically the same. I have some old DDR3 memory that I’m not using.

No, not unless you cut a new slot in the DDR3 memory stick. Why not just buy more DDR4 ram? You're already spending money on RGB, why not spend money on... you know... more performance. 

 

Alternatively you could sell your current set of ram and by a 4x4 set for quad channel loveliness. (Assuming your board supports it.)

It will not much have that performance increase because on my use case, max ram usage I saw was 12gb.

So buy a 4x4gb kit.

That was my plan weeks ago. But I can’t find 4x4 RGB kit here in Japan.

How about 4 single sticks, or 2 2x4 kits?

As for prices/availability, have you considered ordering international, from Europe or North America for example?

Here's a 2x4 kit of Team T-Force Delta II RGB 3000MHz on sale for $89.99 Canadian (7703.12 Yen according to google currently) from newegg.ca, double that plus shipping for 4x4 RGB.
