ADATA XPG Dazzle DDR4-2400 16GB Kit Review

Verdict and Conclusion

When I first received these memory modules to review, I thought to myself … OK, they look nice but what about performance? I initially thought that the LEDs and the armor-inspired look were just gimmicks, to help make the memory modules look fancy.

For the purpose of our tests, we used 2 x 16GB kits (4 x 8GB modules) in quad channel mode on an ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer 3.1 motherboard. Watch the video of the ADATA XPG Dazzle in action.

After testing these modules, I was surprised to find that … not only do they work in dual channel mode … but they could also work in quad channel mode with no issues at all.

Performance at the the default speed of DDR4-2400 was good. We enabled XMP 2.0 profiles giving us memory timings of 16-16-16-39 @ 1.2v. The results were as I expected, so no surprise here.

Since these modules are specified to run at DDR4-2400, I didn’t raise my expectations too much when it came to overclocking. In the end I was able to overclock them to 1400Mhz with rock solid stability, that’s equivalent to DDR4-2800. At this speed, I got some very good scores in all of our benchmarks.

The ADATA XPG Dazzle DDR4-2400 16GB Kits are available from Amazon for around USD $135 , which I think is an absolute bargain. You’re not only get some great looking memory modules, but also good performance to match. Buy now at Amazon – https://goo.gl/shPkPf
