Crucial 32GB 2133MHz Quad Channel DDR4

With the launch of Intel’s X99 platform last week came the first consumer availability of DDR4 memory, the successor to the current mainstream DDR3 product stack. Today we can reveal our first DDR4 memory kit review kicking things off with Crucial’s DDR4-2133 32GB kit. It may not be fancy in its styling but it comes with Crucial’s usual competitive pricing and makes an interesting analysis given that it is the entry level DDR4 speed of 2133MHz, remember the baseline for DDR3 when it was released was 1066MHz. To test Crucial’s kit we’ve opted for the ASUS Rampage V Extreme motherboard which is the current world record motherboard for memory overclocking, furthermore the “ASUS OC Socket” feature this board has allows for higher memory overclocks with less volts than rival boards.



Packaging and Accessories

The packaging is simple and straight to the point – inside the easy to open box we find four plain-Jane Crucial DDR4 modules.

Here’s a closer look at the memory ICs, Micron are the producer as Crucial is a Micron brand. The IC number is Micron D9RGQ which is on the ASUS Rampage V Extreme QVL (Qualified Vendor List) for guaranteed compatibility and stability.
