RAM kit GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G  (4 GB): review and testing 

The hero of this review is RAM module produced by a major Polish manufacturer Wilk Elektronik, better known under the brand GOODRAM. Solution GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G is primarily focused on the gamers and fans of modding, because in addition to well-optimized memory chips and high-quality radiator, the product is also equipped by a LED backlight with multiple operating modes (details in the video at the end of the review). In the course of the article we will identify how good it is in reality.

Packaging and modules design

GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G

GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G is shipped in a bright cardboard packaging that provides protection against mechanical damage during transportation. Each box contains only one module, so in order to provide a full testing we got two similar memory modules. The front panel of the package is a small window through which you can see the memory module and heat sink. Also, here is a picture of built-in LED lighting.

The reverse side has a more information about the memory module. It specifies about the existence of a lifetime warranty, which gives us confidence in the quality of the product.

Plastic blister of each memory module GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G is used for protection against static electricity.

Considered product is a part of memory game series produced by Wilk Elektronik, so that it is provided by additional cooling in the form of an aluminum radiator with a strict design. At first glance the design is rather modest: two plates without traditional design refinements such as ridges or caves.

But the top of the radiator has a thin acrylic tube with built-in LEDs.

This is a look of both modules in active state. Fans of modding or the owners of buildings with a side window should certainly think about installing memory modules DDR3-2400 GOODRAM GL2400D364L11 / 4G.

The height of the modules together with the radiator is 39 mm, which can make it difficult to install them along with overall CPU cooler, especially of the tower type with two 140-mm fans. Fortunately, the design of many of them allows you to lift the side fan over high memory modules. However, in this case, you may have a problem regarding compatibility with PC cases where such a "tower" may not be suitable. Therefore, to keep in mind such option before buying the modules.

The cooling system operates perfectly and copes with the task. In case of continuous load the temperature of modules GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G rose to 39,5°C, which is an excellent result, close to the level of the more expensive kits designed for overclocking.

Thermal interface between the chips and heat sinks is provided by thermal paste. Plates are mounted with the help of thermal glue, so if there is not a special goal, don’t remove them in order to avoid the risk to damage memory chips.

Modules are made on a red PCB with double-sided of chips. Each side has 8 pieces with capacity of 256 MB. In total, the volume of each module is 4 GB.

Chip manufacturer in this case is the company SAMSUNG, and the chips are marked as K4B2G0846Q-BCMA. According to the specification, and their nominal speed is 2133 MHz with delays 14-14-14 at a supply voltage of 1.5 V. There is no information about support of high-speed modes. Nevertheless, it is clear that if the company Wilk Elektronik released modules with a frequency of 2400 MHz memory, the used chips contain some overclocking potential.

The radiator contains a sticker with a list of technical specifications: marking (GL2400D364L11/4G), the type and capacity of memory (DDR3 and 4 GB), the peak data rate (19200 MB/s).

To analyze the parameters of the memory modules we used software Thaiphoon Burner, designed specifically for RAM testing. Above you can find a brief and detailed report of Thaiphoon Burner about specifications of GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G.

There is one XMP profile (DDR3-2400 MHz / 11-13-13-35), which automatically connects the motherboard. In this case, the rated voltage of the memory modules increases from 1.5 to 1.65 V.

Analysis of the results shows that the change of RAM parameters minimally affects the speed of the system. In case of transfer from 1333 to 2400 MHz the performance increase in games and ordinary applications was not very high, about 5%. If we take into account the heavy tasks for RAM, here an increase in speed becomes slightly more noticeable, about 5-10%. The distribution is quite logical and expected: the performance of modern games little dependens on the frequency of the memory subsystem, while complex computing applications, providing read and write operations on large data sets, more significantly react to increase the clock frequency.

This is particularly seen in synthetic benchmark test of AIDA64. The Increase of effective frequency from 1333 MHz to 2400 led to about 65 - 75 percent increase in the speed of copying, writing and reading.

As for the comparison of the two sets of memory GOODRAM LEDLIGHT DDR3-2400 GL2400D364L11/4G with its opponent, on average they have shown comparable results.
