Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE – Budget?

Ryzen has begun to take more and more market-share from intel these past few quarters. Because of this, more people are in the market for some high-speed memory. if you can relate to this then meet the new Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE (Official Product Page).

the Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE

Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE sounds like a familiar name to many. That’s because it’s essentially a non-rgb spec of Thermaltake’s TOUGHRAM Z-ONE RGB (check it out here). The design language is extremely simple with a black aluminium heat-spreader on either side and a silver top with the Thermaltake logo on it. Furthermore, the design is quite rounded and not edgy, unlike the fan-favourite G.Skill TridentZ. It’s an excellent choice for people who prefer a muted dark theme rather than flashy RGB.

The Features

Price

Coming in at $95 for the 3200Mhz and $100 for the 3600Mhz variant, it’s a decent performer for it’s price. However, it certainly isn’t the cheapest option in the market at this time. you could get G.Skill SNIPER X, Ripjaws, TridentZ, XPG Gammix, and T-Force Delta memory kits with the same CAS latency and Frequency of 3200Mhz and 3600Mhz for less than or equal to the price of the Z-ONE. So then, where does the budget aspect of this memory come into play. Simply put, it doesn’t. on the surface, it makes no sense that this memory is advertised as a budget friendly option. Especially when there are other selections of memory out there that provide the same specifications at a cheaper price point. So then in terms of price to performance, i would not recommend the Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE as a budget option.

Availability

Though the RGB variant is readily available in Pakistan, this particular kit of memory is unavailable at this time. However, it may be imported through importers for a lowly import fees. but again, the cost would add into the value of the memory. This would make it an even harder consideration over the competition.

The Verdict

I love the design language of the Thermaltake TOUGHRAM Z-ONE. The rounded edges and the black on silver aesthetic make it perfect for my build. However, at the price it sits at and for the value it provides for that, it’s hard to recommend this memory as a budget option. However, if looks mean anything to you and you like the look of this kit then by all means, go right ahead.
