GeIL Evo Forza 16GB 3000MHz DDR4 Review
Peter Donnell / 2 years ago
GeIL has a long history of creating high-performance computer memory. We’ve tested many of their kits of the years, and even used them in many of our own systems too. With that in mind, I’m really looking forward to putting their new Evo Forza memory through its paces. Marketed as high-performance gaming memory, their new DDR 4 kit promises to be a capable bit of kit.
The model we’re looking at today, the Evo Forza Dual Channel, comes with 2 x 8 GB modules, operating 3000 MHz. However, since they feature a large heat spreader design, which promises “superior cooling performance” we’re also hoping to get some decent overclocks out of the kit too.
“DDR4 EVO FORZA Series. Developed with GeIL’s MTCD – Maximum Thermal Conduction & Dissipation technology, the FORZA heat-spreader provides superior cooling performance. Available in Hot-rod Red and Racing Yellow, the EVO FORZA Series is designed to be compatible with the latest Z170 and/or x99 platforms with frequency of up to 3866MHz. “
For those building a high-end gaming rig, the Evo Forza certainly sounds promising. Now, let’s take a closer look at what it has to offer!
For full details of the motherboard support and more, check out the official product page here.
The box is nice and simple. On the front, you can see it’s dual channel kit, and there’s a small window allowing you to see the actual design.
Around the back, you can see the main specification. Each of the 8 GB modules runs at CL 15-17-17-35.
A Closer Look
The Evo Forza are certainly unique. They use a two piece metal heat spreader design, with a crazy fin design. On one side are some large angular cutaways, mixed with sweeping curves and more; there’s certainly a lot going on here.
The weird design does work though, I do like how they look. The black and red isn’t the most imaginative thing these days, but at least there’s lots of motherboards and other hardware that it’ll match up with.
The PCB is black, giving them a more premium look. Of course, there’s also some branding on there; all colour coded black and red to match.
