GeIL 8GB DDR3-1600 Black Dragon
Today we are looking at a set of GeIL 8GB DDR3-1600 Black Dragon memory modules that look very unique from what we normally see, sporting no fancy heatspreaders, instead going with a different approach. Black PCB, gold printing, and red LEDs make these Black Dragons quite refreshing in a sea of clichéd products that want us to believe that sleek metal casings somehow better performance and can justify the high price tags that accompany such things.
Well, the Black Dragons certainly look different, no question, but what about performance? Certainly overclocking fully populated DIMM slots on a P55 board isn’t quite as easy as 2 sticks, for example, but 1600MHz is no slouch to begin with. Can these GeIL Black Dragons rise to the occasion? Let’s find out.
Thanks go to our friends at GeIL for supplying the review sample.
