Apacer NOX 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5 6000MHz Memory Review

How Much Does It Cost?

Memory stock and prices are always in flux, so it’s not really easy for me to nail down the price on this key. However, I did find stock at one retailer (morecoco) for just £97.99 per 32GB kit. You can also check for up-to-date stock and prices on Amazon here.

Overview

Apacer is one of the biggest names in the business, and after today’s review, it’s pretty easy to see why. This isn’t the most attention-grabbing memory kit, with a low-profile design and some relatively modest specifications, but it does strike a great balance that resulted in very consistent and reliable performance, and for me, consistency and reliability are high up on my list of wants from any computer hardware.

The low-profile design makes it very easy to accommodate into a wide variety of system builds. However, despite the compact size, the overall temperatures are pretty low, so overheating or any throttling simply isn’t going to be a concern here.

The Samsung ICs are known to be the best on the market, so I’m happy to see them here, and they’re often some of the best when it comes to aftermarket overclocking. However, with the slimmer heatsinks, and how well they perform on their XMP 3.0 profile, I feel there’s no need to tinker with the otherwise great performance here.

I also love that there’s no RGB. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love RGB and having that level of customisation, but it’s been nice in recent months to see the trend switch back to more understated designs and simpler aesthetics, and I think that’s also reflecting in slightly lower prices too, which is certainly a good thing too.

Should I Buy One?

When it comes to performance, the Apacer NOX 64GB (2 x 32GB) DDR5 6000MHz Memory certainly delivers, with some of the most consistent gaming performance we’ve seen yet. While some other kits do score higher in a few other benchmarks, they’re usually up and down the charts from game to game, but Apacer managed some of the strongest overall averages we’ve seen so far, competitive prices, low temperatures, and a durable and well throughout design that makes the NOX some of the most appealing consumer memory on the market right now.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
