I think that GeIL has a pretty solid memory kit in their ORION series, which should definitely appeal to people who are looking for non-RGB memory. The two color options (red & titanium grey) that GeIL has gone with should match up with a variety of different builds and overall the memory performed well in our testing. We were able to push this memory up to 3800 MHz without touching the timings or voltage which was pretty impressive.
I do have to say that I am a little critical about the AMD branding on these modules though. You put a Ryzen sticker on one side of the module and now they are the “AMD Edition?” It really would have been nice to see more than a sticker on the supposed “AMD Edition” of these modules. Also the top-edge of modules that attaches to the heatspreaders is some type of plastic rather than metal like we saw on the Patriot Viper 4 Blackout kit we reviewed recently. Not that this will really make much of a difference, but I prefer to have metal over plastic.
Right now you can pick this kit up over at Newegg for only $63.99, which really is a price you can’t argue with. Overall ThinkComputers gives the GeIL ORION DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit an 8 out of 10 score.
– Sleek design
– 2 different color options
– Good overall performance
– Ryzen sticker just seems cheap
– Plastic top edge rather than metal
