Skywalker Plus DDR4 64GB (2x32GB) 4000MHz Memory banner image

Introduction

v-color is a memory and SSD manufacturer that has been at it since 2006. They currently offer a full line of DDR4 and DDR5 memory aimed at gamers at various clock speeds and in many cases, blinged out with RGB lighting on the memory.

The specific kit that we’re looking at today is the Skywalker Plus DDR4 64GB (2x32GB) 4000MHz memory kit which stands in the middle of the Skywalker Plus 64GB stack that has offerings as low as 3200MHz and as high as 4400MHz. The kits are offered in both a silver/mirrored finish and gold finish and come sans RGB bling. At the time of publication, v-color was offering this kit for $239.99 on its website.

v-color Skywalker Plus DDR4 64GB (2x32GB) 4000MHz Memory

The Skywalker Plus DDR4 64GB (2x32GB) 4000MHz Memory comes in a black circuit board patterned box with RGB highlights along the bottom and the notation of Skywalker Plus branding along with its total size. On the back, the v-color provides the speed, timings, serial number, and a bit about itself.

Inside the packaging, we found two 32GB modules etched with the part number TO432G40D818CSPSXK and the serial number bar code taped to the other side. The modules are clad in a silver heat spreader making a V shape in the middle that is mirror polished to the extent it’s near impossible to even see the part number etching. In fact, it’s so well polished that it is near impossible to photograph, which may explain why it looks a bit photoshopped on v-color’s site. The top of the memory sports a black circuit board-like pattern, not dissimilar from the box front. Unlike the branding on the box, the memory sticks do not have RGB lighting as part of its offering.

The kits sport Hynix memory modules that are set at PC4-32000 (4000MHz) at timings of 18-22-22-42 at 1.4V.

From a sizing perspective, the Skywalker Plus DDR4 64GB (2x32GB) 4000MHz Memory measures in at 1.5” in height, which is more or less a regulation height for memory. We would not expect any clearance issues for those big tower coolers that you love to use.

  1. Nice writeup. You need a new mousepad for the photos - the scratches/marks on that one is detracting.

    I can't really get a grasp of what these modules look like. In the photos on the mousepad, they look matte black with just a plain top. Installed it looks like a mirrored finish? The box has rainbows on it, and you mention the RGB pattern on the box, and the company name is v-color, so you might make an assumption that RGB is there (I mean, what doesn't have it anymore?) but it isn't clear if the modules have RGB along the top edge or not -- there's no mention, and it doesn't seem to appear in the photo. You do mention they are highly polished, so I can imagine the photography was difficult.

    The modules look drastically different on their web site photos:

    And the elephant in the room - it says Skywalker, but is there actually a Star Wars tie-in or something?

    On their web site they offer custom engraving on the face of the heatsinks. That could be fun.
  2. Hmm. Good point. I only mentioned the lack of RGB in the conclusion page, probably should have on first page (ahem.. may see that edit shortly).

    On the photography side, there's a few color options - we have the silver ones and it is like photographing a mirror. So much so, you'll see that the "etching" on the v-color stock photos have the words and part numbers photoshopped in as opposed to attempting to take a picture of the etching. Take a look at either the installation or conclusion page (same picture) and you'll see the mirrored reflection of the motherboard's power connectors on the side of the memory. Ugh on the pad though - it's a lightbox and black plastic seems to scuff very very easily. Sigh.
  3. Believe it or not, taking a picture of the product outside might actually work well. I've often found outdoor shots can look very good due to the global illumination factor. Try a both in the sunlight picture, and one in the shade, and see what looks the best, might work well for shiny objects.
