GeIL EVO X Memory Kit Overview
Taking a first look at this kit it is one of the most beautiful memory kits we’ve seen. You have all back heatspreaders with matching black PCBs. There are three sections of the heatspreader that have a cool brushed aluminum look and there is a clear “EVO X” logo (which will illuminate), and a GeIL logo in a red section towards the top of the module.
Flipping over to the back of the modules you have pretty much the same design minus the “EVO X” logo. There are small stickers on each module that give you all of the information on the kit. As a reminder this is the GEX416GB3200C16DC kit which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit operating at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. On the red section of the heatspreader you’ll notice “R”, “G”, “B”, and “O” markings, you’ll see why in just a little bit.
At the top of each module is the clear light bar. GeIL calls this their Hybrid Independent Light Module (HILM). This is a LED module, microprocessor, switch, and dual-power source in one. The clear light bar will allow the LEDs to shine brightly through, but diffuse the light so they are not that bright. The red section on the heatspreader extends to the top and you have GeIL logos up there as well so everyone can see you are rocking GeIL memory.
The HILM takes up a lot of space on the top of each module so that is something you are going to want to keep in mind if you are using a large cooling solution. There are not exact measurements listed on GeIL’s website, but we measured these modules are 2.4-inches or 60.96 mm. AS we mentioned the HILM is dual power source, so on one side you have a 4-pin RGB connector that you can connect to your motherboard or RGB controller and on the other you have a 9V/12V fan power source that connects to a fan header on your motherboard or fan hub in your system.
