    Hey ya,

    Silly question but has anyone seen any dummy DDR4 ram sticks?

    I have a motherboard that has 8 slots but I can only afford/need 4 sticks so I just wanted to fill the extra slots just to make it look better. I could fork out and get 8 sticks BUT that’s an overkill for my system I’d rather put money in elsewhere or save it.

    Or if anyone has some faulty Corsair Vengeance RGB or G.Skill Trident Z RGB ram…Don’t care on speeds as the pins won’t be connected to the socket anyway.

    Cheers.

    I rather keep it empty for better air flow for the ones that u have.

    You see them in rackmount poweredges all the time, they claim it is to ensure proper airflow. I am not sure I believe they are really necessary though :p

    This seems like an idea that an engineer with no concept of reality would try to sell you on.

    Gigabyte is coming out with a pair of Aorus 16GB rgb 3200 mhz DDR4 memory and includes 2 additional dummy sticks to do exactly what you want. I think its a pretty cool idea. I only wish more companies would do it.
    Here is the link...
