XLR8 Gaming DDR4 16GB 3200MHz Memory Review

A Closer Look

The design of the new XLR8 Gaming Epic-X RGB Gaming Memory is simply stunning. Those brilliant white heat spreaders really catch your eye. Even with no RGB turned on right now, the striking design really does look like something I want in my system immediately!

The XLR8 logo is beautifully styled too. Their older logo and designs felt a little retro, but this new look is much more crisp and modern, and I love it.

The white aluminium finish contrasts perfectly with the tidy looking black PCB of the memory.

The modules look larger than most, likely because the heatsink and lighting extend beyond the PCB on each side. This does look cool, but keep it in mind for those running systems that are super tight on space.

Around the back, there’s the same XLR8 logo and heatsink design. The only main difference being the specifications sticker, which you could remove, but ya know, it’ll void your warranty.

The lightbar design is pretty cool, is it doesn’t have any material over the top to obscure it. This is why the modules are so wide, but it does mean the lighting will look pretty epic as a result. The bar dips in towards the middle, and there’s more exposure on the side here too, so it should throw out quite a lot of light when powered up.

The aluminium heatspreaders are a two-piece construction, with some steps in the design that increase the surface area over the length of each module. They’re not huge heatsinks, but they’re more than sufficient to keep these modules cool enough and hit the promised clock speeds.

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!
