Gigabyte has thrown their hat into the memory arena, which isn't too surprising since they recently also announced an SSD a few weeks ago, though they have released lower end power supplies in the past, this is their first high end one to my knowledge.
Gigabyte Aorus Expands Into RAM and Power Supplies
The Aorus product line will expand into new territory this year with its first RGB DDR4 3200MHz memory modules. This new kit seems to have addressable RGB, as well as expected full RGB Fusion support. The really interesting thing about this kit is it features 2x8GB modules with two additional "Exclusive demo modules" these are basically dummy modules that just have an RGB functionality to fill your RAM slots for those who only need 16GB of dual channel but want the 4 DIMM look. Gigabyte says this is to keep pricing down while still maintaining the aesthetics users are looking for.

The M5 uses a Pixart 3398 sensor that boasts 50G acceleration and is adjustable in 50 DPI Increments to make the most finely tuned adjustments possible, although many of you will be using it at 400DPI anyways.
