The product

 

The RAM-modules didn't come in a real buyer-oriented box, which is the reason we didn't take any pictures of it. They just came in a little box, with some plastic protection.

 

EP3001A have been designed to fit into the mainstream market, where the ordinary price-conscious people can be found. The modules reminds one of Kingston's ValueR-series, as the heatsinks have been spared away to minimize the price.

 

If we take a look at the EP3001A modules, we see a green PCB and 8 x 256 MB DDR3-memory chips. Each module has a capacity of 2 GB, and has a speed of DDR3-1333 MHz. 

 

 

We already know the model numer; EP3001A. Exceleram's EP300-series includes two other kits: 2 x 2 GB (EP3002A) and 3 x 2 GB (EP3003A). These kits have a "Rippler" heatsink, which can be seen on Exceleram's homepage.

 

The EP3001A modules are only being sold one by one, and cannot be found in premade kits. They are hard to find on the Internet, but should be able to be found soon. Rumors has it, that one module will cost around 19 euro, if our sources are right, which is around 141 Danish Kroner. 

 

 

 

According to the specifications, 1.50 V is required to run DDR3-1333 MHz. Timings are as standard set to CL9 with a tRAS value of 24. Exceleram doesn't inform about which CRT-timing (command-rate) they recommend for the modules. We used 1T through all the tests, where we can conclude that 1T can be used instead of the slower 2T setting.

 

 

Exceleram haven't given EP3001A modules any XMP-profile, so the BIOS settings could be done fast and user-friendly. SPD-settings are flexible, and fits most platforms - we had no problem booting on a X58-platform with a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R motherboard. 

 

 

Both sides of the modules are similar to each other, with one sticker as an exception. On the sticker, there are different information about the module - for example its model-number, capacity, speed and more.

 

Exceleram of course promotes that their products are being assembled in Germany. Who wouldn't be proud of that? German quality as we know it. To set the record straight, we have to say that if the sticker is removed, the warranty voids. 

 

 

 

Exceleram aren't exactly keen about telling exactly what memory chips they use. On their homepage, they only write that they only deal with "Major Brand" and "eTT" modules, which are factory-tested and live up to the expectations many years into the future. As users, we could also just don't care about about, as long the modules works, are stable and comply with the specifications.

 

We have taken a picture of one of the module's memory chips. If you search for the number/letter combinations on Google, you don't get a lot of results. So what brand the chips are, and what company makes them, remains a secret. 

 

 

The EP3001A modules are not equipped with tall heatsinks, which makes them fit easily under a big CPU cooler, like Cooler Master's V6GT.
