Kingston LoVo  1866 Memory Review

As you can see we've got four sticks available to us today. We'll be running all four in our tests and at the end will give our thoughts on how 8GB fares compared to 4GB. Packaging is standard for RAM sticks with lots of big labelling to show you what they are rated at, and otherwise not much.

The sticks themselves are great to look at. The main three "default" modding colours have nearly always been red, green and blue, but over recent times green has taken a back-seat with blue being the mainstream colour and red being used for more enthusiast parts. Meanwhile poor old green has just sat idle. With this being a low-volt, or I guess ecological, kit, Kingston have brought the green out and it's very swish.

The heatsinks themselves are standard height so those with huge coolers don't need to worry. When you're running at 1.35v then isn't much heat to dissipate.

The trouble is NVIDIA (Green) are beaten out in the energy efficiency ring by AMD (Red) meaning a truly energy efficient PC will end up looking more like a Christmas tree than a miniaturised Hulk

hate to be the sore thumb in all of this. but a reduction of 300mv makes something "green" these days? I would be curious to know the total current draw, based on an amp/watt total....vs. "normal ram"

I don't think a reduction of 300mv and a green heat spreader can really be called "low voltage".....maybe "slightly lower voltage" or "slovo" would have been more appropriate a title (lolz c wut i did thar?)

seriously "green" seems to be the hype marketing term these days, for products that really aren't that different

I do however, applaud them for effort....
