Avexir Raiden DDR4 Memory Review – The Memory with Lightning Effect

Advertisements

Test Setup

I tested the Avexir Raiden DDR4 in two different platforms. First is with an X99 system powered by an Intel Core i7-5930K CPU and an Asrock X99 Extreme6/3.1 motherboard. This specific memory kit was primarily built for X99 high end desktop platforms, but we can also use it with the new Z170 motherboard supporting DDR4 memory. The second test system is a Gigabyte Z170X Gaming 7 motherboard powered with an Intel Core i7-6700K CPU. Below are the rest of the specifications of both test systems.

Overclocking the Avexir Raiden DDR4-2800

I was able to easily overclock the Avexir Raiden DDR4 and pushed its speed to 3000MHz, with memory timings of 15-15-15-25. However, it seems that the 3000MHz was this kit’s limit as I was not able to push it any further. Whether or not bumping its speed to 3000MHz will yield an extra juice in the performance, we will find that out on the benchmark results in the next page.

Additional note before we proceed to the benchmark results on the next page. The Raiden DDR4 doesn’t have a built-in thermal sensor. In fact most memory doesn’t have one. But there are some memory modules, like the Patriot Viper DDR4, that does have a built-in thermal sensor so that you can monitor the temperature of the memory via a tool like HWMonitor.

The good news is, as per my observation during my tests, I don’t feel that the memory was going (too) hot. The heat spreader doesn’t feel hot when I touched them while I was testing the memory. The plasma tubes don’t feel hot as well.

    Ram is Ram but this one does have some problem with Gigabyte and Emaxx boards with AMD A series CPU.
