Using geizhals as our
price research tool, we find that offers for 2x8GB sets of 2133C10 XPG Xtreme Series starts at
150 Euros excluding shipping across the EU. Taking a look at similarly clocked
kits from other manufacturers shows us that the GeIL EVO Leggera are the
cheapest for 126 Euros. After that there is the ADATA kit we've just tested and
then there are the Corsair Vengenace for
5 € more. So this kit from ADATA isn't as cheap as GeIL's offer, but you get good
overclocking headroom with these modules and we could not guarantee for the
quality of the chips that are being used for the GeIL modules.
Also GeIL is very aggressive regarding the price and you see it in the build
quality. With the ADATA kit you benefit from a better overall package.
The only downsides of this
memory kit is the box which can't be reused once opened and the price which
is a tiny bit too high.
Overall, we have to
say that we have been convinced by this XPG Xtreme 16GB memory kit from ADATA who
has achievable specs for almost all the platforms out there, high manufacturing quality and
a good overclocking headroom. If the price would have been a tiny bit lower then
it's a bargain.
The ADATA XPG
Xtreme Series AX3U2133XW8G10-2X kit receives the
excellent rating of 4 out of five stars
