Avexir Raiden DDR4 Memory Review – The Memory with Lightning Effect
Avexir is best known for their creative, eye candy and high performance memory kits. We previously reviewed their Blitz 1.1 Original DDR3 memory kit and we were pleased not only with its unique look and lighting effects, but also with its performance as well. Today we are going to take a look at and review one of their new creation, the Avexir Raiden Series memory modules that are available in both DDR3 and DDR4 variants. In this review, we have the Avexir Raiden DDR4-2800 CL15 16GB (4x4GB) memory kit (AVD4UZ128001504G-4RD) to test and play with. Stick around and find out if this fancy-looking memory is the right eye candy for your PC.
Avexir Raiden DDR4 Memory Review
The Avexir Raiden series is a high performance memory module that is available in both DDR3 and DDR4 variants. The company sent us their Avexir Raiden DDR4-2800 CL15 16GB (4x4GB) (AVD4UZ128001504G-4RD) memory kit for us to test and review. I have to say, this is one of the most unique looking memory currently in the market. Avexir used an exclusive patented technology with plasma tubes that give the Raiden its lightning effect.
The new Avexir Raiden series is Intel Chipset motherboard optimized. In this case the DDR4 sample we got worked well on both an Intel X99 and Z170 motherboard. Avexir made sure that every Raiden memory are 100% tested on PC motherboard environment and that every single IC used are examined by the company’s IC Sorting technology. The memory modules passed 16 handpicked processes and 14 memory module functional, burn in, and compatibility tests for Intel chipset motherboards.
The most obvious feature we see on the Raiden series is the dynamic blue lightning effect. This reminds me of my old Sunbeam Liquid Neon tubes which I used many years ago. However, the lightning effect on the Raiden series are much better looking that would easily catch attention. According to Avexir’s site, the tubes are upgradeable but I don’t see any tubes available for sale, and dismantling the Raiden is definitely not an easy task.
Aside from the lightning effect, the Avexir Raiden series also features a high performance voltage stabilizing generator, 10 layers of PCB for maximum thermal conduction and a double Copper PCB to maximize overclocking ability.
I’ll discuss more of its features as we take a closer look at the Avexir Raiden DDR4 memory on the next page. Meanwhile, below are the memory’s specifications and some information based on the AIDA64’s SPD information.
