Colorful recently announced its latest DDR5 memory kit – the Colorful CVN ICICLE DDR5 memory series. The new CVN ICICLE is designed for enthusiasts and overclockers. It has a base frequency of DDR5-6600MHz but can reach up to DDR5-10000MHz! I’m not sure if this is the first DDR5 memory that can reach 10000 MHz OC, but it is definitely a feat. This is even faster than the CVN Guardian that we reviewed before, not to mention aesthetically pleasing as well. According to Colorful, the CVN Icicle DDR5 comes with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $105 for the 32GB kit and will be available in Q2 2023. You can check out more details from the official news release below.
