Klevv Cras DDR4 Memory Review-10

Klevv Cras DDR4 3000MHz Review: Conclusion

Like Klevv’s DDR3 memory (the Genuine and Urbane), the Klevv Cras performed well on our test systems without any problem. The results we got from our tests and benchmarks were not actually bad at all considering that Essencore/Klevv is basically new in the memory business. In terms of performance, it’s able to compete with top DDR4 memory like Kingston’s HyperX or Corsair’s Dominator Platinum. But we have yet to see how does it fare with G.Skill’s Ripjaws 4 or Trident Z. Honestly, I was expecting more performance given its asking price, but it’s not bad considering that they are competing with memory manufacturers that have a long number of years in experience. Most probably, we will see price drops from Klevv once DDR4 became fully mainstreamed and I am hoping to see more DDR4 memory variants from Essencore’s brand, Klevv. Whoever designed their memory, specially the heat spreader is definitely on the right track. Their memory kits are elegant looking and very attractive. Like I said in my previous Klevv DDR3 memory reviews, Essencore didn’t enter the memory market with half-baked products. They entered the market prepared and have loaded their memory kits with the design, features and performance that could compete against top brands.

Now let’s talk about what’s not cool or the “meh” part of this product. For starters, the asking price is a bit high compared to other DDR4 memory kits in the market. This could hinder system builders, enthusiasts and even gamers to choose Klevv Cras for their system. Second, there isn’t much overclocking headroom for the 3000MHz memory kit, in fact we were not able to overclock it above 3000MHz. I was able to make it boot at 3200MHz, but it wasn’t stable and was not able to benchmark it. I’m not really surprised at all, memory kits with clock speeds like this don’t have much overclocking potential since they are nearing or already at their limit. Probably if you get the 2133MHz or 2666MHz memory kit (which is cheaper by the way) you will be able to over clock it further. The good news is I was able to lower the timings further, but didn’t seem to result in a significant performance increase. That’s it actually; there is not much to nitpick about the Klevv Cras DDR4, in general, except for its price.

Finally, I think that the Klevv Cras is a very well performing DDR4 memory kit and can be used in both X99/Haswell-E and Z170/Skylake systems. They are in the right track in terms of design and performance, and I see a lot of potential in the company’s capabilities to make memory kits based on their first wave of products. We like the Klevv Cras very much specially its heat spreader design. It’s just so sexy looking. If you have the budget, I find no reason why I should not recommend the Klevv Cras to you. It’s definitely worth it, specially if you want something new. If you have a black/red theme, be sure to get the one with red LED, otherwise the white LED would do fine.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
