Sabrent Rocket 64GB (4x16GB) 4800MHz DDR5 Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2022-07-12

While operating with two Rocket DDR5 modules of 16GB each, each running overclocked at 6000MHz it was quite an easy and straightforward task, we cannot say the same when all four slots are populated. In compatibility mode, as Intel recommends on the Z690 platform, 4000MHz is guaranteed and this is the speed the 64GB kit operates with in automatic mode. For running at 4800MHz, we needed a bit of extra voltage tweaking concerning VSA, VDDQ and VDD2 but in the end we could validate stability with TM5 and all benchmarks we ran afterwards have completed without any errors.

Packaging, A Closer Look

Last time we have reviewed a Rocket 32GB (2x16GB) 4800MHz DDR5 memory setup from Sabrent, which has proven quite overclockable on our platform composed of a retail 12700K processor and the EVGA Z690 CLASSIFIED motherboard. To be more exact, we were able to run the kit at 6000MHz by simply raising the stock voltage from 1.1V to 1.25V and keeping the stock timings. We have asked Sabrent to supply and extra kit of 2x16GB to see how the setup behaves when all memory slots have been occupied, for a total of 64GB of RAM!


The kit has arrived in separate packaging for each module, as the last time:




The outside layer does house an additional compact box, sporting the Rocket brand colors but also the specification that it was meant to operate at 4800MHz:




The top cover opens like a book, being held with magnetic force; the memory module is held secure inside foam material and we will also note a Memory Module Installation Guide document:




The guide does fully explain the installation process in order not to end up with a non-functional setup because the modules were not pressed in the slot all the way:




The 16GB modules do carry the Rocket brand color scheme and even the cooling system type is retained (a thin sheet of copper as a heatsink):




Due to the thin aspect of the modules, there is enough space between it even when we do have four installed on the motherboard, for allowing the air to flow through:




The operating frequency of the 16GB modules is noted on the left side:




The capacity writing is available on the right:




On the back we do have a different design, with the Rocket logo in the middle on a black background:



A QR code is present on the left, with the module code name:



Here is a photo of the modules, when installed inside the testbench:
