A-DATA X Series Ver 2 PC3-12800 6GB DDR3 Kit - The Package and Modules

A-DATA has stepped up and released a high-end PC3-12800 kit as part of its X Series lineup. We see if the company can offer some serious competition.

The Package


It's nice to see that A-DATA has gone a bit fancy on the packaging. From the front we can actually see a sneak peek of the cooling they have opted for along with the main details on the memory modules.

Across the top we have the important information like brand and speed, which in this case is DDR3-1600 along with the fact that it's a 6GB kit. While we can only see two modules, we can see along the bottom that this is a triple channel kit.

Looking at the back of the package, we can see across the bottom we have a bit of a step by step guide that shows us how to install the cooler. Above that we have a bunch of information regarding the kits features, specifications and other helpful info.

Inside the package the main extra we can see is the cooler that A-DATA has chosen to include in the package. While installation might look a bit confusing, looking at the back shows us how to do it and it really isn't that hard.


The Modules


Checking out the modules now, we can see that there isn't anything too fancy going on with the overall design of the heatsink. We can see that it's silver and in the middle of it we have the A-DATA logo.

One side shows us serial information while in the corner of the other side we have more information on the specifications. We can see it's a 1600MHz kit; the timings are 7-7-7-20 and the voltage range is between 1.75v - 1.85v which is a bit up on Intel's 1.65V max recommendation. We can also see the A-DATA website mentioned for if you're interested in seeing some of the other products the company does.
