These new RAM kits are pretty speedy, looking at the numbers in the above chart. You've got a maximum latency of 19-21-21-42 at 1.4V for the 4133 MHz modules. There's built-in support for Intel XMP with version 2.0 profiles for seamless overclocking and the anodized aluminum heat spreader should keep the RAM working well under load.
The largest kit on offer in the Twist family is 256GB, a whopping 32GB per RAM stick, allowing you to go all out with an enthusiast-grade motherboard. And there's no RGB lighting here, nor an aggressive styling for the heat spreader. Simple aesthetics for more subtle builds, something of a rarity these days.
