One manufacturer pushing DDR3 to ever higher specifications is GeIL and their latest range, called Black Dragon, features some rather attractive styling and LEDs as well as speeds well in excess of 2000MHz. We have the quad channel kit in our test system today and will find out what it offers in a selection of real world and synthetic tests.

Geil are EPIC and are very very well known, they're one of the best memory makers out there.

Really shocked you've never heard of them.

Well Jeez mate, they may not be so popular like Corsair or G.SKILL, even though end user's are more familiar with it nowadays wink.gif.

Note, Geil is one of the Best Memory Makers in the Market wink.gif

I'm finding it hard to believe they saw a 9FPS increase comparing 1600 to 2133. Anyone shed some light on this?
