GEIL Intros Green Series DDR3 Memory Kits

GEIL is yet another company to undertake a green initiative with an appropriately branded product that appeals to the environment-conscious computer enthusiast (apparently the species does exist). After a similar line of memory kits with its DDR2 segment, GEIL announced four new dual-channel DDR3 memory kits based on capacity and speeds. The two come in 4 GB (2x 2 GB) and 2 GB (2x 1 GB) capacities, and two speeds each: PC3-8500 (DDR3 1066 MHz) and PC3-10660 (DDR3 1333 MHz). The biggest USP of these kits are that they offer JEDEC standard memory timings at module voltages 10~20 percent lower than JEDEC specifications. The PC3-10660 kits runs at 9-9-9-24, while the PC3-8500 ones do 8-8-8-20, both at a mere 1.3 V. This allows GEIL to do away with a heatspreader. The modules go through GEIL's rigorous quality-assurance testings and hence carry lifetime warranties. Another part of the green initiative is the product packing, which makes use of recycled paper, a trend which is catching up. GEIL will deck up shelves with these kits shortly, so you could know the price. Model number details follow:
  • GG32GB1066C8DC - 2x 1 GB, PC3-8500, 8-8-8-20, 1.3 V
  • GG34GB1066C8DC - 2x 2 GB, PC3-8500, 8-8-8-20, 1.3 V
  • GG32GB1333C9DC - 2x 1 GB, PC3-10660, 9-9-9-24, 1.3 V
  • GG32GB1333C9DC - 2x 2 GB, PC3-10660, 9-9-9-24, 1.3 V

Hopefully they're low profile modules as well - now I'd like to see some DDR3 mITX boards.

When the SPD is programmed at 1.3V, it doesn't matter what the BIOS setup shows you.

even if it runs at 1.5v cause your board sucks, that just means more OC headroom at stock :)
