GeIL Launches Black Dragon Evo One DDR2 Memory Series

GeIL has just unveiled its new Black Dragon Evo One DDR2 memory series, which is available in both dual- and quad-channel kits and ships with impressive heatsinks which use Maximised Thermal & Conduction Dissipation (MTCD) technology. The modules are built using eight-layered PCBs featuring FBGA DDR2 IC chips, and are available in a selection of twelve kits – 2GB, 4GB and 8GB, running at either 800MHz or 1066MHz with timings of 4-4-4-12 and 5-5-5-15 respectively. All of the Black Dragon Evo One kits come with a lifetime warranty.

8GBs of memory at pretty respectable timings. Im sure these are premium priced memory though. Also, FBGA ics? Who makes those? I was hoping for Md9s.

The 800MHz is 4-4-4-12. Re-read the newspost -if it's still confusing I'll change it :)

The CAS 5 refers to the modules that run at 1066MHz.

Geil and Gskil FTW forever!!!

I always buy these brands over others, especially that Corsair crap.
They charge you like a 100 bucks more the exact same chips.
I don't know why people pay it.

That's just the SPD. AKA: The timings it boots at before you manually set them.

FBGA refers to how the IC's connect to the pcb. Fine Ball Grid Array

Back on topic: I thought remembered seeing the Evo One name last year sometime. They had prototypes on display. They had their own external power. Power came from a floppy connector, and you adjusted the voltage with a small screw. I still want to see this in production. Takes one worry out of mobo selection.
