    Default GEIL EVO X DDR4 RGB DDR4 3000 32GB Kit Overview

    Introduction Where to start? I have in my grubby little paws a set of GEIL EVO X DDR4 3000 32GB (2 x 16GB) sticks of RAM. As if that isn’t fantastic enough, it’s RGB lit!

    High Speed RAM and Glowy Bits. What’s not to like?

    GEIL EVO X DDR4 RGB DDR4 3000 32GB Kit Overview-img_20170115_193018816_hdr_crop_banner.jpg

    First things first, let me lay something out here and now. I’ve been building computers since 1993, and in all those years, I have never used a product from GEIL. Ever. This seems a bit strange to me since as it turns out, GEIL was established in the same year (1993) that I began building PC’s. To be fair, in those days just getting a PC to work was my primary concern and the concept of “Performance” and “RAM” didn’t have any meaning when associated with my 386DX/33 based system.

    Over the years, I’ve seen GEIL mentioned in reviews and occasionally noted them as being for sale on NewEgg or similar sites, but for some reason I’ve never picked any up. It doesn’t seem like I’m alone either. Do some searching for GEIL and you’ll find threads on many US Tech Sites that ask about who GEIL is and if they’re any good.

    Interestingly, the reviews I’ve read of their RAM (often by European based websites) say positive things about GEIL RAM and it’s clear that GEIL is more readily available and more heavily marketed in the Far East and Europe than we find to be the case here in the USA.

    To be fair to GEIL, it’s also got to be tough to compete against entrenched and familiar brands here in the US like Crucial/Micron, Kingston, Corsair, Mushkin, and G-Skill (among a number of others). But as they say, the proof is in the pudding and I aim to find out for myself how these sticks perform! With that said, let’s see who GEIL is: Well, that’s interesting and it paints a pretty good picture of the company and their products. So moving right along, let’s have a look at what they sent us!

    Great Review, excellent RAMs, my con: extremely tall.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    They are crazy tall, however I expect in most ATX cases it wouldn't be a big deal. In some situations though, it could make watercooling difficult... I don't have a set of Dominators in hand, but I suspect that the big heat sink on the Dominators may be of similar height, so if anyone has had problems due to the dimensions of the Dominators, the EVO X may give you similar headaches. They are pretty though.

    I just bought some of this (16GB, 2-8GB sticks) RAM in 3200MHz Speed.
    They're going into an EVGA Z170 Stinger M-ITX build and it doesn't have RGB control either.
    I could care less about that as long as they work at the proper speed like my GSKill is doing.
    I'll just use the manual control and set them at vivid blue to match the GTX-980 in there.


    I've used Geil memory many times. It's always been a good choice for me and they have always had nice looking designs. I still use four 2GB DDR2-800 sticks in my Dell Pentium Linux box that serves up Movies and Music on my house's network.


    Good review Scott

    I dunno if you've gotten them yet, but just keep in mind that the switch really gives you 3 arbitrary colors, sadly it's a 4 position switch, so whatever blue is on blue is what you get. It would be nice if you could manually control the RGB with the switch, but it's a bit less sophisticated than that!

    It seems like there ought to be some sort of aftermarket "aura" controller that you could pop into older machines to get this kind of control over RGB devices, especially as such devices flood the market!

    I found it strange that I'd never used them, but aside from my ASROCK being a Finicky POS with regards to RAM, they seemed quite excellent. If I pick up a Z270 board with Aura or something, I may post an update with regards to speed and RGB control.

    Thanks!

    I never got to turn them on yet. (didn't install them into the PC)

    I started out with two 8GB DDR4-3200 GSKill Ripjaws-V in the M-ITX EVGA Stinger system.
    But I had two more of them on the shelf and started to build another Skylake box yesterday.
    I wanted to have 32GB (fill the slots) on that build, so I robbed them and replaced them with two slower 8GB DDR4-2133 GSKill Aegis sticks.

    I thought that there wouldn't be much difference in the system's performance since, with DDR3, speeds make very little difference in most systems. (except in benchmarks)
    This Stinger system runs with the DDR4-2133MHz RAM inside, but it's ~noticably~ slower.

    So I decided to look for another 3200MHz. 16GB kit for the system (as cheap as possible) and ended up with the Geil EVO-X.

    As I said before, I don't care about the lighting, but I need that speed back ASAP.
    eeI really can't put this new RAM in until the other system is built since It's the only one that I have working ATM.

    Default Re: GEIL EVO X DDR4 RGB DDR4 3000 32GB Kit Overview

    Just wanted to chime in some fun thoughts. First, I got the RGB motherboard sync working well with the RGB header on the board. The only issue is Gigabyte uses RGBW lighting, so it gets off on certain phases. I build another system with an Asrock Z270 board and the RAM synced up great with that though.

    I just finished overclocking and plan to do some tests, but with the Aorus Gaming 7 board, I had no issues hitting the 3200 XMP profile speeds. I tried overclocking the EvoX, but I only got 3333 Mhz, 16-18-28-40 timings on 1.4v. I could probably tighten those timings a bit more with more time, but unless I want to push heavier voltage limits, (i.e. 1.5v) I don't see myself getting much better frequency.

    All in all, I'm really happy with the Geil RAM and Gigabyte Z270 board. Intel chip sucks at overclocking because of heat, but everything else is great! Reviews in progress!!!

    Default Re: GEIL EVO X DDR4 RGB DDR4 3000 32GB Kit Overview

    OK, so I installed this Geil RAM.
    It really is very large/tall and I had to unplug all of my SATA ports to get it done.
    After putting it in, I set it to stay on the color blue using the manual plug and top switch.
    The color is vivid and pretty bright, but it cycles on and off. That, I don't like, but it's not a dealbreaker for me.
    As to the performance, it's great. I used the XMP Profile #1 in the BIOS and it set to 3200MHz. without any problems at all.
    Ran a few benches with it with my i5-6600K set to a 700MHz overclock and the RAM using the XMP 3200MHz.
    I actually scored a little higher than when I had the GSKill RAM of the same speed in there, so I'm happy with it.

    I recommend this RAM if only for the performance. The lights are just icing on the cake.

    Yeah, that breathing cycle thing is fixed on the manual mode. I wish you could select a steady state, but without a MB that supports RGB control of some sort, or that bit of Kit that Vinny mentioned, (but DIDN'T Link!) you're kinda stuck with the breathing cycle.

    Even though it's in a glass-sided case, it's not where I can see it pulsing on and off. so not a big deal.
    All of the benches that I ran scored a tiny bit higher than the GSKill 3.2Ghz ram did.

    One thing I did notice while testing it, was that it's ability to tighten the timings while remaining stable was pretty impressive (at 2666 anyway). I like the stuff...sadly though, my next build isn't for awhile, so it's sitting in it's box on my desk.
