GEIL Super Luce 16GB 3000MHz DDR4 Memory Review

I’ve always been a fan of GeIL memory, having used several of their kits myself over the years. Now they’re back on eTeknix once again, as we take a look at their new Super Luce DDR4 Dual-Channel memory kit.

This 16GB memory kit comes with 2 x 8GB DDR 4 modules. Each operating at 15-17-17-35 timings, 3000 MHz and 1.35v. That’s pretty swift for any memory kit and with 3000 MHz running at such good timings, I’m expecting some pretty solid results when we put it on our test bench today.

“GeILs’ latest benchmarking DDR4 hardcore gaming series – SUPER LUCE, is equipped with the patented iLUCE Thermal-beaming Technology. User will be able to observe real-time temperature condition of memory modules through different LED breathing-light tempos, directly from the SUPER LUCE heat-spreader.” – GeIL

DDR4 SUPER LUCE – Hardcore Gaming Memory That Breathes

As the working temperature of memory rises, the tempo of the breathing light goes up in five different levels, Level 1 is with the mildest tempo and the lowest temperature range of below <40 ℃, while Level 5 being the most rapid with the highest temperature range of above >55 ℃. The following are the different temperature ranges with the corresponding breathing-light beats per minute of the five levels:

  • <40 ℃: 13 beats/min,
  • 40-45 ℃: 60 beats/min,
  • 45-50 ℃: 80 beats/min,
  • 50-55 ℃: 120 beats/min,
  • >55 ℃: 200 beats/min.

SUPER LUCE is available in three different LED colour scheme designs – SUPER LUCE WHITE, SUPER LUCE RED and SUPER LUCE BLUE.

“These colour schemes are to provide users with the flexibility of visually matching with the different high-end motherboard colour schemes. Covering speeds from 2400MHz to upwards of 3866MHz, SUPER LUCE is not only the ultimate DDR4 memory that delivers eye-catching aesthetics and hardcore performance. Together with the iLUCE Thermal-beaming Technology, SUPER LUCE will bring your gaming station to live.” – GeIL

A Closer Look

The GeIL memory kits look awesome, although that may be because the logo reminds me of Superman. The matte black finish looks great too, and there’s a weird angular shape to the heat spreaders that is a bit subjective, but I do like it.

The modules use a black PCB, giving them a more premium quality look; much better than the stock green PCBs!

Along the top of the modules, a red LED light. This is a reactive light and will blink according to how hot the memory is; this could be handy as a visual aid when overclocking.

On the other side, a handy specification sticker. Here you can quickly check the rated speed and timing of the memory.

Overall, the modules look pretty robust, and that large heat spreader design should allow the memory to perform at its best. Now, let’s get it installed on our test bench!
