GEIL Ultra Series PC3-14400 6GB Memory Kit - The Package and Modules

We have a look at a PC3-14400 kit from GeIL today. At 1800MHz it nestles between the more common 1600MHz and 2000MHz kits.

The Package

 

Having a look at the front of the package, we've got a pretty funky design going on with a motorbike picture taking up the majority of the picture. Across the top we can see the GeIL Extreme Power equipment logo and we can also see a little bit of the memory, but nothing that really paints any kind of picture.

In the middle of the package we can see that the kit is of course a DDR3 one. We can also see it's part of the Ultra series and this particular one is a triple channel kit. Across the bottom we have the GeIL enhanced logo along with the GeIL one on the other corner.

Turning over, we've got all the information we need on the modules; we can see the kit is a PC3-14400 one or 1800MHz which we mentioned earlier. We can also see the timings and that the kit is a 6GB. We'll look closer at these details when we take a closer look at the modules.

Inside the package we've got a little leaflet that tells us what to do "before unleashing the beast." We've got a bit of information on SPD along with voltages. If you find yourself around higher end modules on a regular basis, there isn't anything too important here.

 

The Modules

 

Having a look at the modules for the first time, we can see that there isn't anything too fancy going on as far as heatsink design goes. With the Ultra Series only being one level up from the Value one, we didn't expect too much. If you do want something a bit fancier, though, you'll be glad to know that GeIL do mix it up in their Gaming and XMP Series.

One side is pretty full on with information; we've got the GeIL logo in the middle while to the left side we have a DDR3 logo. On right side of the module we have a sticker that gives us a run down on all the important information that you'll need to know. On the other side we've got a sticker that just gives us some serial and part number information.

Having a closer look at one of the stickers, we can see that all the important information is there. The particular module is a 2GB one which comes in at 1800MHz. The timings the module uses are 8-8-8-28 which are achieved at 1.6V.
