Following yesterday's ADATA review we will have a look at another 16GB memory kit today. The kit belongs to GeIL's new Evo Veloce series and consits of two 8GB modules running at DDR3-1866 MHz CL10-10-10-32 with 1.5v. Nothing really special on the paper but once we started to play around with this kit we have been surprised. In good or bad? You will find out in the following pages!

Evo Veloce, where Veloce is the Italian word for “speed”, is how GeIL named their 4th generation top of the line DDR3 Hardcore Gaming Memory. Below you will find the specifiations of the kit:

Manufacturer GeIL
Series Evo Veloce
Part Number GEV316GB1866C10DC
Type DDR3
Capacity 16 GB (2 x 8GB)
Frequency 1'866 MHz
Timings 10-10-10-32
VDIMM 1.5 Volt
Registred/Unbuffered Unbuffered
Cooling Passive Heatspreader
Waranty Lifetime warranty
Package Type Plastic Blister Boxed

Taking a closer look at GeIL's memory line-up shows that the Evo Veloce fit in their mid-range. This is being underlined by some 10-10-10-32 timings, which is nothing special. Of course, doing so at 1.5V is more difficult than at 1.65V, but it’s hardly an achievement. Given that the majority of DDR3 memory ICs are able to provide a decent overclocking and voltage headrom for scaling.
