We haven’t taken a look at any memory in a while, so we thought that it was about time, but you know us, we don’t like to do things by halves, and if we’re going to start doing something again, then we’d like to do it with a bit of style and take a look at something unique.
With that in mind, we’d like to introduce to you the Samsung Green DDR3 1600MHz 8GB 30nm low-profile memory kit said to give outstanding results with reduced energy usage. Though we all know what marketing hype can say and what a product can actually do, well that’s another story.
Due to the release of Intel’s new Z77 Express Chipset, we’re keen to pair this kit up with the Asus Maximus V Gene and our i7 3770k to see how far things can be pushed, but lets take a look at the modules themselves first, as they are quite interesting to look at. Keep reading, and you’ll see exactly why.
The modules come in a typical style set of packaging fully sealed. From a first glance, you can see the sticks themselves are extremely low profile; in fact, around half the height of normal modules, and this is all down to the 30nm technology.
