HP V10 DDR4 RGB DDR4 RAM Review
Peter Donnell / 2 months ago
HP are not the sort of brand that comes to mind when someone asks me about high-end and stylish gaming memory, but I’ll be damned, it looks like they’re giving it a shot anyway! Now, while I think of printers, office computers, and little else when I think of HP, there’s more to this memory than you might think. Firstly, HP doesn’t actually make it, it’s made by BIWIN, who produce some pretty fantastic memory for a bunch of other companies and also made the HP SSD I reviewed last year! Plus, BIWIN manufactures their own hardware, meaning they’re got greater control over the design and hardware, unlike some companies that stamp different logos on the same blank DIMMS. Furthermore, BIWIN uses Samsung B-Die ICs, so again, this RAM is already off to a great start.

HP can deliver this memory at speeds of up to 4000 MHz, albeit, I have the 3600 MHz kit in for review right now. 3600 MHz is a nice sweet spot though, offering good performance for high-end computers and gaming, without getting too silly on the price. All the usual stuff is included, such as XMP 2.0 one-click overclocking, RGB lighting effects, good hardware compatibility, a large heat spreader, and a decent 5-year warranty.
HP V10 comes in 8 GB or 16 GB with dual and quad kits (16GB/32 GB/64GB). The product offers three frequencies (3200 MHz/3600 MHz/4000 MHz). The frequency can go up to 4000 MHz with 18-19-19-39 timing or at 3200 MHz you can achieve the lowest timing of 14-14-14-34.
- Samsung B-Die ICs
- Main frequency up to 4000 MHz
- Support XMP 2.0 one-click overclocking
- Variable RGB color light effect
