GeIL PC3-17000 2133MHz 32GB EVO Leggera Quad Channel Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2012-10-03

The EVO Leggera series from GeIL comes with a low-height heat sink model, colored in Turquoise Blue, offering maximum compatibility with CPU coolers. The 2133MHz 32GB C11 model we have tested, even if it is rated at 1.65V, it also runs perfectly at 1.5V. The kit also overclocks quite well at the rated voltage, so we could reach 2200MHz without a lot of effort.

Packaging, A Closer Look

The EVO Leggera 32GB kit from GeIL is shipped in a compact cardboard box with some small cut-outs on the sides, so we're able to see how the modules look like even before purchasing:




On the back side of the packaging, we will see the stickers with the module specifications, along with some more information on Golden Emperor International Ltd. , like address and web address:




If we remove the outside cardboard enclosure, we'll find the RAM modules packed two-by-two, along with a small warning leaflet:




The previously mentioned warning leaflet lets us know some more regarding the SPD and applied voltages:




Each memory module comes with low height heatspreaders which provide maximum compatibility with larger heatsinks; these have a Turquoise Blue finish and are built with GeIL's MTCD (Maximum Thermal Conduction & Dissipation Technology):




The opposite side comes with a similar design, minus the EVO Leggera sticker:




On the modules we will also get to see the total capacity, speed rating CAS latency and rated voltage:




Here are some additional photos of the modules which show the heatsink construction:
