Klevv Urbane DDR3 Memory Review: 8GB Dual Channel at 2400MHz
Today we are going to look at another DDR3 memory from the new comer Essencore – the Klevv Genuine DDR3 memory. Previously, we reviewed the Klevv Genuine which is their flagship DDR3 memory. If you haven’t seen or read my previous review, be sure to read that as well. Just a little intro regarding the company; Essencore is basically a new company or challenger in the memory and storage industry. They recently launched their brand “KLEVV” together with their DDR3 and DDR4 memory early this year. Now, the Klevv Urbane DDR3 Unbuffered DIMM memory, according to the company, is “Born to be Sophisticated” and is “Fast by Nature”. Well, aesthetically speaking, it does look elegant and sophisticated. The Urbane is not about jagged edge and serrated aluminium fins, like most DDR3 memory we see in the market today. The Klevv Urbane is all about sleek lines and smooth curves, and in my opinion it offers a certain uniqueness that I find very pleasing. The specific unit sample I got is the Klevv Urbane DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) Memory Kit at 2400MHz CL11-13-13-31 @ 1.65V (KM3U4GX2Y-2400) IMT451U6MFR8Y-AB1. Now that’s very specific! Before we proceed with the review, I’d like to thank Essencore for providing the Urbane DDR3 memory kit for the purpose of this review.
KLEVV Urbane DDR3 Memory Review
Just like the Klevv Genuine, the Urbane DDR3 memory kits are also built using strictly screened memory ICs. At least that’s what Essencore said from their advertisement. The Urbane doesn’t have any LED lighting effects, but thankfully its heat spreader is made out of an all-aluminium material. Unlike with the Genuine’s heat spreader design that was a mixture of aluminium and plastics, and that somehow got me a little bit disappointed.
The Klevv Urbane fully supports Intel XMP profile which should be able to help you run it on its rated speed. The Urbane memory kit is available from 8GB capacity up to 32GB capacity, with rated speeds from 1600MHz up to 3200MHz. This memory, like the Genuine, is geared towards gamers, PC enthusiasts and overclockers who want a high performance memory. But it won’t cost you as much like the Genuine DDR3 memory kits.
I’ll discuss more of its features as we take a closer look at the memory below. Here is a screenshot of the SPD information of the sample kit I got using AIDA64:
