    That heatsink seems like its going to cause a lot of clearance issues for no reason at all other than to look special. Reply

    This is ADATA we're talking about here. The very definition of crap, top to bottom. Reply

    No more so than the rest of the tacky look-at-me-sinks tarting up a large fraction of performance memory on the market today. Reply

    Interesting timings.. looks like Crucial got the better bins out of their fabs (last I checked Micron still manufactured RAM...) Reply

    In photos from the gallery, the image displaying the back of the packaging declares that there's something that's "FREE", but I can't get the detail to resolve. Oh goodness ... whatever could it be???

    free ; \

    "Register for ADATA warranty and download FREE software."

    There is a link to their website where their "free software" may be downloaded.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what are the advantages of DDR4 over DDR3? And is DDR4 compatible with Z97 mobos? Reply

    Pretty much the same as advantages DDR3 over DDR2: faster, less energy consumption. Z97 is stuck with DDR3. Reply

    It's only faster if the frequency is actually higher, there is DDR3 2133 MHz and higher RAM out there. Reply

    and no use case for at least 75% of the buyers. Reply

    Lower voltages and faster speeds. DDR3 is 1.2-1.65 V while DDR4 is 1.05-1.2 V. DDR3 is 800-2133 MT/s while DDR4 is 2133-4266 MT/s. But like the move from DDR2 to DDR3, DDR4 will have a different pin layout not compatible with current motherboards.

    Currently there are only two announced products that will support DDR4: Intel's X99 platform (Haswell-E) and AMD's Opteron A1100 "Seattle" ARM SoC.

    Well someone had to be first. Gigabyte just announce a ddr4 board...with 8 memory slots I believe. Something has to go in that. Reply
