G.Skill ECO Low-Volt DDR3 Review

Closer look

G.Skill ECO  Low-Volt DDR3

Perfect Recall

The G.Skill comes in the standard RAM package of a blister pack but thankfully G.Skill haven't gone the route of welding the sides together. That aside the information insert part of the package is exceptionally minimalist. And for once not in the good way. A little more about the benfits and speed capabilities wouldn't hurt at all.

The DIMMs themselves are exceptionally pretty finished in a lovely gun-metal aluminium coating with a fantastic embossed G.Skill logo. The opposite end has a tribal design that, if you were told it was tribal might seem gaudy, but actually looks lovely.

It's very tactile too with a nice grooved pattern. If you like a rig that looks as good as it goes, or maybe even value the aesthetics higher, these definitely will fit the bill.

Finally thanks to the low volt nature of the sticks meaning very little heat, the spreaders are able to be both thin and of a standard height. Anyone who has had to install an oversize cooler will appreciate this.

No overclocking? I'm disappointed... I've seen some real nice results with these sticks over at XS

Thanks for the review and thanks to G.Skill for putting out a product capable of laying the smack down at an affordable price and 1.35v.

We were having some CPU problems at the time of testing, so couldnt do the sticks justice so decided to leave that part of the review on this one and concentrate on the low power aspect instead.

LOL @ comparing cl7 to cl8. Fair comparison? Nice in focus photos.
