Review of RAM kit DDR3-2400Silicon Power Xpower SP008GXLYU240NDA (8 GB)

Series of RAM SiliconPower Xpower is designed primarily for enthusiasts of computer technology and overclockers. It contains kits with operation frequency from 1600 to 2400 MHz and a total capacity from 8 to 16 GB. The special charm is provided the red metal radiator that contributes to efficient removal of excess heat, which is very important for chips for higher clock speeds.

Package and design 

DDR3-2400 Silicon Power Xpower SP008GXLYU240NDA

Memory kit DDR3-2400 Silicon Power Xpower SP008GXLYU240NDA comes in a plastic blister that protects modules against static electricity and mechanical damage.

The package has a cardboard mat with the basic technical information about the product: the operating frequency (2400 MHz), the total capacity of memory (8 GB) and the number of modules in a kit (2 pieces). Also, there is mention of a lifetime warranty.

The back of the blister placed information about other features of DDR3-2400 Silicon Power Xpower SP008GXLYU240NDA: stock metal radiator support Intel XMP profiles and thorough testing of chips.

Radiators of the kit demonstrate aggressive red-spiked design indicating the focus on the audience of enthusiasts. The ridge rises significantly over the edge of the PCB (more than a centimeter), and this issue should taken into account if you plan to install the system with a massive tower cooler.

The cooler consists of two metal plates, which are very securely fastened together. If you decide to look inside, don’t forget that it should be done very carefully to avoid damaging the memory chips.

Also we tested a cooling system, and the result did not disappoint us: under the normal load, the temperature of the modules was 39,3°C and overclocking only rose to 40,1°C. It is quite a decent result.

Each radiator has a sticker with information about a particular module: labelling (SP004GXLYU24ANSA), the operating frequency (2400 MHz), the amount of delay CL (11) and capacity (4 GB).

The memory modules have a one-sided arrangement, that is, the chips are placed on one side of the PCB, eight pieces and each with a capacity of 4 GB. And to provide improved heat dissipation they are in contact with the heat sink plate via a special thermal interface.

Indicated marking did not allow us to know any more information about chips. We can only assume that the chips were made to order, as the company Silicon Power does not have its own factory lines to create them. Nevertheless, they must undergo a thorough check, so their quality is no doubt. Confidence in the reliability is provided by lifetime warranty.

It is quite expected that a significant difference between the modes DDR3-1600 MHz, DDR3-2133 and DDR3-2400 MHz MHz is evident in synthetic tests, for example, AIDA64, and demanding to the frequency of the memory applications tied to reading and writing large amounts of data. In such case the performance increase was about 20-30%.

In most real everyday situations, such as playing games, multimedia applications and other programs, the difference in the frequency of the memory subsystem does not exceed 10%.

As for comparing the kits of memory, in general, they provided comparable results with situational advantage of one or the other kit in every benchmark.
