KLEVV Neo 1600MHz 16GB DDR3 Memory Kit Review
Rikki Wright / 3 years ago
Memory, the most vital part of any computer that gets overlooked the most. There’s not a lot to say about RAM apart from its expensive and very confusing. DDR3 is an aging technology now, but it is still the most used memory standard in circulation. DDR3 is a solid memory standard, offering good performance with relatively low costs when compared to the older DDR2 and newer DDR4 memory kits. With the next introduction of Intel processors and motherboards, they will offer compatibility of DDR4; which means we could start seeing the demise of DDR3 in the consumer market. That will be a long way off yet as all apart from Z170 will still feature DDR3.
Today we will be looking at the newly introduced KLEVV Neo memory kit. KLEVV has already been released in other parts of the world and has made big waves. The Neo range could be considered as the ‘mainstream’ range for what KLEVV has to offer, although do not let this put you off; it still comes equipped with one of the nicest heatsinks I have ever seen and some very good specifications.
Essencore is the parent company of KLEVV and has strong ties with memory chip company SK Hynix. This allows KLEVV to utilise some of the highest quality memory components available in the world.
“Being reduced to its necessary elements, KLEVV Neo DDR3 Memory distinctly proves the motto “less is better” by its extreme performance with minimalistic design. By adopting select Memory ICs and severe test procedures, the pliable performance brings you the essentials to conquer the world.”
That’s enough talking, let’s jump into testing!
Packaging and Accessories
The packaging on these is top class, solid outer casing with individual pockets for each module ensures the product gets to you in working order; well in most normal cases anyway.
A Closer Look
Much like the KLEVV CRAS memory kits, these are set to impress. Featuring a more conventional two-part heat sink design with an embossed pattern and extraordinary build quality.
