ADATA XPG Spectrix D41 DDR4-3000 16GB Memory Kit Review

Final Thoughts
ADATA has a really great memory kit in their XPG Spectrix D41. I like that ADATA has decided to make this kit a little less flashy than the XPG Spectrix D40 kit. The more subtle look just looks sleek and professional to me. The diffuser at the top does a great job making it look like there is a single light at the top of each module, when in reality there are 5 RGB LEDs in there. The heatspreaders on these are some of the best I’ve seen too!

While the RGB “wave” effect is set by default with this memory you can easily change the colors / effects with either XPG’s software or your motherboard’s RGB software. We tested not only the XPG software, but compatibility with ASUS Aura Sync, which worked without any issues. I did notice that the effects would go out of sync, which happens on quite a lot of RGB kits.

When it comes to performance this kit sits right about in the middle of all of the DDR4 memory we’ve tested. Running at 3000 MHz with timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35v is not bad, but definitely not that tightest timings we’ve seen for 3000 MHz DDR4.

One thing I was really impressed with was the overclocking headroom on this kit. We were able to push this memory up to 3466 MHz without even touching the timings or voltage! And that is a 100% stable overclock that I would run 24/7. A 466 MHz bump with little effort, we’ll take it!

Right now you can pickup this kit at our favorite online retailer for $164.99. Overall ThinkComputers gives the ADATA XPG Spectrix D41 DDR4-3000 16GB Memory Kit a 9 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award.

Pros:
– Sleek design
– Awesome heatspreaders
– Good overall performance
– Lots of overclocking headroom
– Has its own software and compatible with motherboard software

Cons:
– RGB effects go out of sync
