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.
