WHAT WE LIKED:

Fantastic aesthetics for RGB fanatics, works out the box at a higher frequency.
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

No OC headroom, tall heatsinks pose a potential issue for air cooled systems.
 
BOTTOM LINE:
If you're after memory that will just work, you can't go wrong with the Super Luce series from GeIL. Whilst overclocking is almost impossible, they will run a little faster out of the box at stock voltages.

Introduction

This isn’t the first iteration of RGB memory that GeIL has released, and it most likely won’t be the last. This kit, however, is tailored to those on the AMD Ryzen platform and GeIL aims to bring you some good bang for your buck. GeIL has been around for a long time, since 1993 in fact, and is considered one of the top contenders in the DRAM market. I won’t bore you with the intro, though. You can read more about it further down the page. What I do want to interest you in, however, is the GeIL Super Luce RGB kit that is sitting right in front of me today. So, without any further ado, let’s get right into the good stuff and see what is up!

A few key notes to mention here, which will be covered later on as well, is the fact that they are of course RGB (the name aught to give that away, surely?) and that this particular kit is a 4×8 GB quad channel solution. RAM is typically (more so in the past) a thing that we all look at and think that if it has the capacity and speed, it’s good enough. Well, no longer! You now have the choice of heat spreader designs, to RGB or not to RGB, different memory for different platforms (although they all work with one another) and so on. This RAM is supposedly an “AMD Edition,” but there’s no reason for it not to work on an Intel rig. You’ll just have AMD stickers all over the modules instead of Intel, nothing more. Let’s race through the specs really quick and then get up and close with the modules, shall we?

Established in 1993, GeIL has soon become one of the most trusted memory professionals in the industry. In the year 2000, with the vast knowledge of tweaking and producing some of the world’s fastest DRAM modules, GeIL shook the PC enthusiasts market and changed it for the better. The introduction of the first ever memory heat-spreader, the dual-channel packaged memory kit and lifetime warranty are all innovative concepts GeIL introduced in the PC DIY market from 2000~2003. Since then, GeIL has been concentrating in perfecting the technologies of IC testing, memory burn-in and quality assurance for memory products in application in all segments of the market. As of today, GeIL memory is trusted and distributed in over 50 countries worldwide with volume upwards of five million pieces annually. GeIL – Always Ahead. Read more about GeIL here.

    Considering i have only used air cooled systems thus far with every pc I have built I guess this is not the ram for me. As for not much OC headroom that would not be a concern for me though as I can’t remember ever OCing my ram unless it was done automatically by following a certain set of instructions for overall pc OCing.
