Panic at the Frag Harder Disco, Corsair RAMs RGB Domination into the spotlight

Sometimes it is sad that the <blink> tag was deprecated, for instance it would be perfect for Corsair's Dominator Platinum RGB kits.  As you can see below there are more than four lights on each module and they are certainly not dim.  If you need to feed your RGB addition you can pick from a variety of kits including two 16GB kits, one running at 3200MHz and one at 4800Mhz, or 64GB of DDR4-3600MHz, up to a 128GB 3600MHz kit.  All feature Frag Harder Disco Lights compatible with Corsair's iCUE software so you can make them dance like Jim did.

"Corsair is adding a huge 64GB RAM kit that many enthusiast High End Desk Top users might be interested in. We take the new Dominator Platinum RGB DIMMs for a ride on both Intel X299 and AMD X399 systems and see how the clocks shake out. And of course, enough Frag Harder Disco Lights to illuminate your house."
