GEIL Super Luce 16GB 3000MHz RGB DDR4 Review

Final Thoughts


Price

DDR4 memory is freaking expensive right now, with many 3000 MHz 16GB kits costing around £200+ here in the UK. However, GeIL gets my all-singing and all-dancing praise for being the first kit I’ve seen in a while that’s well under £200. At just £172, it’s a bit of a bargain in a bad market, and that’s sure to appeal to those brave enough to pay current market prices.

Overview

There are a lot of fantastic memory kits on the market these days, and honestly, you would have to look pretty far and wide to find a bad one. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the latest GeIL memory kit performs so well. Of course, with many years of experience creating award-winning products, GeIL isn’t exactly new to this market, and it shows in the final product. When it comes to day-to-day performance, gaming, rendering and more, the Super Luce can keep up with the competition and even beat them.

Aesthetics

With their black PCBs and black heatspreaders, the Super Luce modules look absolutely stunning. The larger heat spreader design may conflict with some cooler design though. However, keep in mind that the larger surface area of the heat spreader keeps them cool. Furthermore, that also help with overclocking. I do love the RGB lightbars and the support for multiple RGB lighting engines. However, those RGB stickers could do with being toned right down or removed, as they tend to clash a bit.

Overclocking

From stock, the 3000 MHz kit performed pretty great. However, it didn’t take more than a boost to the multiplier to get the kit to 3600 MHz, which saw some impressive improvements to read, write and copy speeds. Of course, it also saw improved scores in our benchmarks too, and overall, the Super Luce proved to be a great kit for overclocking.

Should I Buy One?

The performance is certainly not an issue here, and while I don’t like the RGB sticker, it’s hardly a deal breaker. When it comes down to it, this is one of the most affordable RGB kits we’ve seen in recent history, and offered some solid overclocking too. If fast memory at a good price isn’t for you, I don’t know what is!

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!
