Final Thoughts and Conclusions
Samsung is known for almost everything in the computer and tech industry, except for enthusiast grade internal PC hardware. However, their MV-3v4G3D/US memory kit is something that has brought them to the forefront of a lot of budget enthusiast builders as of late. With a price point of just $49.99 for their 8GB dual channel 2x4GB kit, they have placed themselves in direct competition with other memory kits on the market.
This specific memory kit appeals to two different markets though, not just the enthusiast builder. This memory kit from Samsung is originally designed to be very stable and energy efficient. Samsung designed this kit to be used in the system that needs to be as reliable as possible, with minimal downtime. With a default voltage of just 1.35v it’s easy to see how these memory modules are so energy efficient. At their maximum load at 1.35v they only draw 1.6 watts per stick. This, again, is perfect for the system with a small, yet efficient power supply.
