GeIL has supplied a total of four RAM sets for the first part of this round-up. Three sets are dual channel 2x4GB, one is quad channel 4x4GB. Of course the motherboard and CPU has to support dual, triple or quad channel to make such a setup work; this is largely independent of the RAM, but a nice marketing term.

First off the EVO Corsa line-up. GeIL supplied us with the DDR3-1866 CL9 2x4GB kit, part of the yellow-ish heatsink series:

The other three sets are from the Enhance Corsa series, which sport orange heatsinks:

Both series are offered in dual- and quad channel sets, on a working voltage of 1.5V.

All of the Enhance Corsa sets have an Xtreme Memory Profile (X.M.P.) for easy overclocking. For the DDR3-1333 CL9 sets this DDR3-1500 CL9 and for the DDR3-1600 CL9 set it’s DDR3-1700 CL9.

The timings are CL9-9-9-28, on a rated voltage of 1.5V. As the memory timings are only slightly different from the DDR3-1333 CL9 variant, we can expect better overclocking results with these DIMM’s, as they’re probably higher binned.
