Toughram by Thermaltake – Review

We are taking a look at the Toughram by Thermaltake today.

When you are building a PC, you either put a lot of consideration into choosing a DRAM kit or you just go with the cheapest and fastest kit available; completely disregarding the aesthetic value.

If you’re living in a western country, you have a number of choice when it comes to RAM. However, in Pakistan, similar to other components, your choices are extremely limited in the same regard. It has only been a few years since XPG launched their kits in the country, prior to that you had a resounding choice between the G-Skill TridentZ or the Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB.

Toughram

Thermaltake has released their TOUGHRAM series with the RGB variant readily available within Pakistan. It only comes in 8×2 modules, so those fiends who like to cripple their system by running single channel memory are out of luck. The kit also comes in a white color to fill that niche and overpriced segment of the market even though the official MSRP is the same. In terms of speed, you can find the kit in the following Mhz:

  • 3200Mhz
  • 3600Mhz
  • 4000Mhz
  • 4266Mhz
  • 4400Mhz
  • 4600Mhz

While the Kit is available in various high speeds, availability is questionable in Pakistan.

In terms of height, the Toughram stands at 49mm which is appreciated compared to Corsair Vengeance Pro RGB that is menacingly tall at 51mm but it loses out to the TridentZ module which is only 47mm tall.

Toughram Unboxing

Front

The front side features an illustration of the ram kit. However, the LEDs on the actual unit aren’t as uniformly diffused as the box depicts. In addition to that, you will find specifications written on the corner.

At the back, you will find the marketing jargon along with some useful information such as the RGB compatibility along with latency.

Toughram

The DRAM kit is enclosed in a plastic box to protect from damage.

Toughram

The metal accents are covered to protect from oil and dust.

Toughram

Once uncovered, the kits feature a unique design with metal accents on top of a black shroud.


RGB

Toughram

In terms of brightness and color vibrancy, the Toughram stands out compared to its competitors, but the LED diffusion from the sides is arguably better on the TridentZ kit.

Software

The Toughram has a minimalistic software which gets the job done without extra bloatware.

It features a number of lighting modes to match your aesthetic needs.

The Toughram by Thermaltake is their take on a high speed RGB ram module. The kit has a unique design language with metal accents. The RGB is bright and vibrant but the diffusion from the sides can be a bit lack luster as you can see the individual LEDs. Thermaltake chose to only develop high speed modules with the lowest one being 3200 MHz and currently the highest speed module you can buy is 4600 MHz. The software is the Achilles' heel for the Toughram, as I found it to be slightly basic and buggy in some instances but that shouldn't be an issue as you can control the kit using your motherboard's RGB software. Overall, I would personally go with the Toughram due to its eye-catching design.Toughram by Thermaltake - Review
