GIGABYTE had a large VGA display at Computex this year, the majority of which are made to stand out in the market using non-reference cooling solutions, factory overclocks and more attractive bundles.

COMPUTEX Taipei 2010 - We found ourselves back at the A-DATA booth where we got an introduction into its line-up of XPG memory that is designed for overclockers, enthusiasts and gamers.

The Xtreme Series now includes an active fan cooling unit that is like others on market. It is installed over the top of the RAM and the two fans push air down over heatsink to aid in stability and performance when pushing the memory as fast as you can go.

The Plus Series includes cooling as well, but in the form of a heatpipe design. The Gaming Series doesn't come with any external cooling besides of course the standard heat spreader on the RAM. All these modules are now made using a 2oz copper PCB design which is designed to improve overclockability.
