ADATA XPG V2 DRAM Review

ADATA might not be the biggest kid on the block, but they do specialize in various memory and storage related products, in which this specialization should help them churn quality products.  In fact, ADATA has the most award-winning product designs, which does show their enthusiasm to providing top-notch memory solutions to their customers.  Today we’ll take a look at the new ADATA XPG V2 DRAM memory kit to see how it stacks up against their performance claims.

The new XPG V2 series is designed for 4th Generation Intel Core Processors (Haswell) and the Z87 platform, and features colorful and visually striking heat spreaders.  These DDR3 modules come in speeds starting at 1600MHz (9-9-9-24 timings @ 1.5v) and go up to a staggering 3100MHz with 12-14-14-36 timings @ 1.65v.  Should you not have a board capable of running at these speeds, or if you forget to change them on a board that does, they are JEDEC compliant and will run at 1333MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings @ 1.5v.  To unleash the full power of these modules, you just have to simply activate the XMP (Extreme Memory Profile) profile 1.

The XPG V2 kits come in either 8GB or 16GB sets, featuring either gold or tungsten gray colored heat spreaders.  These memory modules are backed by ADATA’s limited lifetime warranty.  The kit that we will be looking at today is the 8GB 2400MHz gold kit (AX3U2400W4G11-DGV) and has a retail of $94.99 shipped on Amazon.

Below is a quick list of the various speeds and kit sizes that ADATA offers for the XPG V2 DRAM.

To bring the quality and stability into these modules, ADATA selects each memory chip through a strict filtering process, complete with high quality PCBs which use 2 ounces of copper, and the aluminum heat spreader to help ensure stability when pushing your RAM to the limits.

There isn’t anything more to introduce with this RAM, so let’s move on to a quick closer look at the packaging and modules themselves.
