This RGB DDR4 features Dual channels and will be available in frequencies of 3200Mhz and 3600Mhz with CAS latencies of 16 and 18 respectively.

Inspired by the Japanese Samurai sword and its blade, the Antec Katana features a soft silhouette with metallic shine and lighting, adding extra style to the dream builds. “With our Katana memory modules, Antec aims at enthusiasts buying their stylish gaming cases and looking to add stylish designed components by the same brand”, explains Eric Chen, Vice President at Antec. “Katana shows off a metallic shine on the silver lighting bar, while, lit up, Katana glows with soft and harmonious light effects.”
The distinctive Aluminum heatsink offers excellent thermal conductivity to ensure great cooling performance even during overclocking. Katana provides extensive freedom of customization with a vast array of modes and ARGB functions via motherboard synchronization.
