SILICON POWER XPOWER AIRCOOL DDR4-3200


Recommended Posts

rhr-sp-ram-1280x640.jpg

It seems that the further in product’s life cycle you get the more mature and refined they become… but also the more and more loaded down with dross they get. Take for example the latest craze is not only adding brightly colored heatsinks but LED enabled heatsinks to RAM. Heatsinks with LEDS that can be customized to ‘play’ a fancy light show. While great for certain scenarios and highly customized builds, as well as being just plain fun, the fact remains that they are not needed. Instead, such additional features have been added simply to help distinguish one model from others. These days few builds actually need heat spreaders, let alone true heat sinks, and yet they are de rigueur these days. This is actually a pet peeve of ours and why the Silicon Power XPower AirCool series is so interesting.

To be precise, they are interesting in that they are ‘old school’ / ‘nekkid’ sticks of RAM, and yet thanks to such a late stage in the DDR4 life cycle still come with respectable ratings of DDR4-3200 at 16-18-18. Mix in the fact that since you are not paying for anything you (most likely) do not need and it should come as no surprise that this particular version of the XPower AirCool series will only set buyers back about $135. That certainly sounds like the start of a wonderful (value) relationship.

Nice review. I have absolutely no issue with no heatsinks, and would love to save a few $ by getting rid of randomly shaped/oversized stuff hanging on ram. That said, 3600mhz is generally only marginally more expensive than 3200, so I would probably opt for a slightly faster kit. Money talks though, so street pricing will be the deciding factor.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
