There is a large market for memory modules. Ranging from standard value ones to high speed, low latency overclocking modules for extreme benchmarkers looking to break world records. Today I’ve gotten my hands on some overclocker oriented RAM, the GeIL Ultra Plus DDR3-2000 CL9. This kit should offer speeds that aren’t achievable by normal motherboards on stock settings. Let’s see if GeIL can live up their promise for decent overclocking memory.
What does GeiL tell us about the Ultra Plus-series?
"GeIL announces the launch of the all new DDR3 Value PLUS & Ultra PLUS Series to be added to GeILs’ high performance memory line of products. The Value PLUS & Ultra PLUS are equipped with the latest PLUS Edition memory heat-spreader designed with heat-sink surface and extended height for maximum cooling efficiency. The Ultra PLUS line of memory will be carrying over-clocking performance while the Value PLUS line has the more stability-oriented specifications. As GeILs’ quality standard, both series will be enhanced with DBT – Die-hard Burn-in Technology for the highest quality assurance."
Both series come in double up to hexa (6-)channel, ranging from DDR3-1066 up to DDR3-2400 speeds. I’ll explain a bit more about GeIL’s DBT later on in the review.
