Cellshock PC3-14400 (DDR3-1800) 2GB DDR3 Kit

Packaging & Appearance

Packaging
 
In keeping with the PC2-9200 modules we reviewed a short while ago, the PC3-14400 kit is packaged inside a black cardboard box with a window. This is a welcome change to the boring and over-used plastic blister pack packaging used on almost all other memory and certainly adds a level of 'class' to the modules.

Very little information is provided on the front of the box, with only a specifications sticker located at the bottom right giving potential buyers an idea of what they are looking at. Around the back of the box is some further info, but once again it only covers the very basics such as the origins of the modules and guarantee provided.
 
Each of the DIMM's are individually seated inside a plastic case that has been moulded to the exact contours of the modules. This offers premium protection against courier inflicted damage and shows CellShock's dedication to ensuring that the modules reach you in tip-top condition. Also included in the pack is a Cellshock manual and case badge.
 
 
Appearance
 
Despite producing some rather sexy red heatpreaders on one of their previous DDR2 kits, Cellshock have reverted to the  simple yet very classy black anodised aluminium heatspreaders for their DDR3 range. The heatspreaders are of extremely high quality and feel very heavy compared to the standard wafer thin aluminium spreaders that most other manufacturers use.

The front of the modules feature an embossed Cellshock logo along with two rows of silver stripes. It's a shame that Cellshock didn't go with a custom black PCB for their DDR3 kits as this would have certainly completed their sexy appearance.

Cellshock have once again gone the extra mile by using thermal paste between the heatspreaders and memory IC's.  This offers much better heat transfer properties than the thermal pads and made it extremely easy for us to confirm that the PC3-14400 kit uses Micron's highly overclockable D9GTR chips.

Hi,

Nice review. I need some help with cellshock memory. I have a couple of sticks and now 1 of them died on me.

I tried emailing the company for support but no one seems to reply? Its been over a week now and still no reply from anyone.

These sticks arent exactly cheap.

While buying the memory the said it had 5 years warranty! My sticks arent that old.

Any help ? anyone??
