Today, we’ll be taking a look at the the GEIL Super Luce DDR4-3000 16GB Dual Channel Memory Kit. According to GEIL, these modules are under their benchmarking/DDR4 hardcore gaming series, and are rated to run at DDR4-3000 (1500MHz) @ 1.35v with memory timings of 15-17-17-35.
As you know already, RGB is the latest trend (but I’m not sure for how long). It’s everywhere. Some of you may like it, while others hate it. Personally, I like anything with RGB! hahaha! However, if you don’t fancy full RGB, but want to match the memory modules to your system’s color theme, then you have 3 colors to choose from. They are available in three different LED colors – white, red or blue.
Additionally, there memory kits are equipped with their patented iLUCE Thermal-beaming Technology, which allow users to observe in real-time, the temperature condition of memory modules through different LED breathing-light tempos, directly from the SUPER LUCE heat-spreader. There are 6 levels of breathing patterns from a low of 13 beats/min (for low temps) to a high of 200 beats/min (for higher temps).
OK, with aesthetics aside, the other most important factor when it comes to choosing any PC component, is the performance of the product. Whether it’s memory, motherboard or graphics card … we all want good performance at a decent price.
These memory modules are rated to run at DDR4-3000 (1500MHz) @ 1.35v with memory timings of 15-17-17-35, so it should give us some decent performance. We will find out in our benchmark and testing …
Here’s a little blurb taken from GEIL’s website.

As GeIL’s memory products thrived in the high-end PC market, the creative minds at GeIL came up with yet another brilliant design of an interactive power supply unit control panel and high efficiency PSU. Together, the patented duo made perfect for supplying superior power and securing the health of gaming performance PC. The achievement in such PSU R&D deserved a brand of its’ own when Thortech Power was born in 2009. Thortech – Nothing but Power.
Two years later, the never-resting minds at GeIL wanted to perfect the PC gaming experience by introducing to the market a dual-sensor gaming mouse concept. The concept came to reality in 2011, with the brand EpicGear, the world’s first HDST-Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology gaming mouse was born – the MeduZa. One mouse, two sensors and three different modes, the MeduZa fulfilled PC gamers with the ultimate mouse solution for its perfect ergonomics and game-type-sensitive sensor preferences. Shortly after the debut of the epic MeduZa, a complete line of ingeniously designed and crafted gaming peripherals were introduced by EpicGear. These ultimate gaming gears soon became gamers’ top choices in dominating in their games. EpicGear – Equip to Dominate.
For our tests, we used our MakeMeCooler Doraemon PC build which consist of a Gigabyte Z270X Ultra Gaming motherboard, along with and Intel Core i5 – 7600K (Kaby Lake) and a Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 AMP Extreme Edition.
Rated to run at 15-17-17-35 @ 1.35v, the GEIL Super Luce DDR4-3000 16Gb kits should give us some decent performance. It’ll be interesting to see how it will compare with other DDR4 dual channel kits on the market.
OK, now let’s take a closer look at the specifications of the GEIL Super Luce DDR4-3000 16GB Dual Channel Memory Kit in our next page.
