ADATA XPG™ Gaming V2.0 Series DDR3 - Review
ADATA XPG™ Gaming V2.0 Series DDR3 - Review
Date: 17-12-12
Topic: Reviews & Previews

The test setup for today will consist of the following:

CPU Intel Ivybridge 3570K
Motherboard Asus Maximus V Gene
PSU Antec HCP 850W
Cooling Custom Water Cooled

So we started of with a small overclock. See if you can spot the difference..

The kit ran beautifully at rated timings and voltages. Infact we could turn down some of the secondary timings immediately.

Then we decided to up the game straight away. I decided to run it at the same speeds that I could run my Gskill at. And here are the results:

And again it did so, without too much effort. I had to up the voltage a bit and loosen a few clocks, but, the kit was responding extremely well to the input.

Finally I tried upping the game one more time:

And this is where I ended up. A superb result by any standards and one that we would find easy to replicate, with the given hardware. This is a bit over what we managed with the Gskill kit and the results speak for themselves. I am sure we can go higher, if we look for a suicide run, but I thought it a good point to stop testing at 1.72V.

Both these kits use Samsung HCH9's, so why does this kit fare better?

Well basically the Gskill kit I tested was single sided and this one is double sided. That is the basic difference between the two and since single sided RAM will be denser to populate, it just cannot run as high as double sided RAM.

Lovely review! Please let us know about the pricing about this kit as well. I have used memory from AData before and have to say, they're a pretty underrated brand when it comes to memory and SSDs.

How do these kits fare against other kits of the same speed? Would love to see a comparison! For now, these kits look like the king of the hill!
