Colorful iGame Vulcan DDR4-4266 C18 Review: The Winter Companion

Despite being one of the more seasoned hardware brands in the industry, most casual users haven’t even heard of Colorful. It’s hard to blame them when Colorful products are rarely available outside of the Chinese market. In recent times, Colorful has made an effort to get out of its comfort zone, and evidence of that is the availability of Colorful graphics cards at US retailer Newegg. Like countless other hardware brands, Colorful has ventured into different hardware segments, including the memory market. Although the company has a couple of memory lineups, the iGame series offers a decent array of memory kits that could soon vie for a spot on our list of Best RAM.

It’s easy to see that Colorful’s iGame Vulcan memory is aimed at white builds — the memory modules come with a white PCB and a matching aluminum heat spreader. Colorful has opted for a design that consists of geometric lines with complementing silver accents. The iGame Vulcan’s exterior looks clean, and the only traces of marketing come in the form of the iGame logos.

The iGame Vulcan memory module has an irregular RGB diffuser, so it’s a bit tricky to measure. The iGame Vulcan measures 48.75mm (1.92 inches) in height at its lowest point and 49.40mm (1.94 inches) at its highest point. Unfortunately, Colorful doesn’t provide any software to control the RGB lighting, but we consider that a pro because you can just use your motherboard’s software. The memory module’s RGB lighting is compatible with Asus Aura Sync, ASRock Polychrome, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light .

The iGame Vulcan memory modules arrive with a capacity of 8GB and a single-rank design. Two memory modules make up the dual-channel 16GB memory kit. Colorful equipped the memory modules with Samsung’s renowned K4A8G085WB-BCPB (B-die) integrated circuits ( ICs), which continue to be the favorite ICs for many enthusiasts and overclockers.
