Posted March 1, 2017 by Josh Jackson in RAM

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Great performance and excellent RGB lighting
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Red switch stands out quite a bit
 
BOTTOM LINE:
With other RGB RAM charging a bit of a premium for their lighting effects, it's really hard to argue wit the Evo X series as a top recommendation. It not only has a nice RGB effect, but it's performance and pricing are very competitive in it's bracket as well.

I wanted to mention one thing about the Evo X kits before I move on to testing. The RBG lighting looks fantastic, but I noticed that some of the lighting phases on the color cycle didn’t match the Aorus Gaming 7 colors. This seems to be a fluke related specifically to the Aorus too. The reason I say this is not only did I see plenty of these kits at CES syncing perfectly, but I also built a Z270 system using an Asrock motherboard with this RAM and the colors synced perfectly there as well. My theory is that because Aorus is using the RGBW (W standing for White) lighting instead of traditional RGB, that some of the cycles use that white channel to bring in a better variety of colors. Unfortunately, it means the GeIL lighting is off on some of the lighter colors. I don’t think Aorus or GeIL are to blame in any way, but it’s something to keep in mind if you’re building a system. With my NZXT Aer RGB fans lighting up the case in spectrum wave though, I don’t notice it at all. Check out the video below for another closer look if you like, then we’ll move on to the testing phase.

    I have to agree with you on the Editor’s Choice Award for this GEIL RAM.
    The kit of 3200MHz that I have is performing quite well and its price was the same as another company’s RAM that doesn’t even have the RGB lighting on them.

    I was looking for a Ryzen memory cause G.skill Flare X 3200 is not available in my area, even the all the Trident Z 3200 C14 also not available. I found in some forums that this cheap RGB is highly recommended for Ryzen overclock (Samsung die B). I was confused about this Ram quality because I never heard about this Ram before, also in the motherboard QVL list Geil is missing, but after reading this review put away my confusions. Going to buy it <3
