The last few kits of memory we've looked at from A-DATA have been a part of the Gaming Series. While impressed with what the kits offered, one of my favorite kits of RAM that I've looked at from A-DATA this year was the Plus Series 4GB PC3-17600 kit.
While the kit we're looking at today doesn't carry with it the same kind of speed (this particular one is PC3-15000), it's a 6GB Triple Channel kit suited for the X58 platform which in all honesty is an area we've seen neglected by a lot of memory companies as of late. It's ultimately easier to make faster Dual Channel kits than it is Triple Channel ones, because you only need to get two modules to perform at that speed instead of three.
With speed being the name of the game for most companies, we have seen Triple Channel samples dry up lightly as companies concentrate on creating faster Dual Channel ones. Today, though, we're able to look at the Plus Series in Triple Channel form, a series that's already impressed us previously in Dual Channel form and while it might not carry the same speeds of some of the recent kits we've looked at like 2400MHz and 2500MHz DDR, it doesn't carry the same price tag associated with those speeds either.
So without any further ado, let's check out the package and the modules before we look at overclocking and the overall performance of the kit.
From the outside we're able to get a good look at the modules we're dealing with. The package is clear, displaying the speed of the kit and the size while showing us the hero of the kit which is that heatsink. Apart from the kit itself, there's not much else to look at when it comes to the package.
We're dealing with a 6GB Triple Channel kit today which is part of A-DATAs Plus Series. These are some really nice looking modules that feel of excellent quality. While the heatsink is large, it didn't cause any problems with our large Noctua cooler which is good. The heatsinks themselves aren't actually much wider than the module with heatsink attached.
Each side is similar with a different sticker being shown. One gives us the barcode, serial number and all that other information while the other tells us the speed, timings, voltage and has the A-DATA website mentioned. We won't go into detail on all that here because we'll cover it in more detail on the next page.
