    There are people in our world, who are ashamed of their dusty computer and they mostly hide it under a desk. They don't want to look at it everyday, cause they don't consider it beautiful or interesting. Thankfully there are also people who put their computer on the desk. They choose elegant and nice looking chassis with window, adequate cooling, motherboard, memory and matching cables. All selected very carefully, so the entire set looks like a real state of the art, something of what we can be truly proud of
    .
    If your computer is placed under your desk, there is no sense for you to read the rest of this news. However if you belong to the proper group, there is today a release of new interesting memory series named Avexir Blitz 1.1 Red Dragon. Modules are built from a black PCB and superimposed black and red color heatspreaders with unique stylistic design showing a red dragon. At the top of memory manufacturer installed red lights, which gently pulsates as if our RAM was actually breathing. This gives a particularly striking effect in the evening, when our computer becomes the main source of light in our room.

Blitz 1.1 series depending on the model are clocked from 1600 MHz till enormous 3200 MHz speed.

    I've just noticed that I've had this board and cpu for 2 1/4 years now. And it's still kicking ass (at 4.4Ghz). I'm an upgrade whore but this is like a marriage to me. Now, if they make blue 'Ice Dragon' modules instead, I'll buy them!

    I like to hoard hardware, as you can probably tell by the pointless extra PC's, but if I could somehow sell my RAM and GPU for a reasonable sum, I'd totally pick up a 2x8GB kit of these and run the system with the side panels off.

    Sandybridge is still a total baller.

    There are also clueless sheeple who actaully believe the PR sent out by unscrupulous companies who try to dupe them.

    There are also clueless Jorges amongst them. Such that they cant spell "actually" but can spell "unscrupulous". Everytime I read one of your posts, I learn something even more amazing.

    So, how much faster do you expect apps and games to run with all that fancy design work on the heat spreaders?

    an extra 5fps, 10fps..........???

    You can't even imagine! Though you'll be too busy staring at the ram to notice any FPS increase, or that fact that your kitchen is on fire.

    Shame that Avexir doesn't seem to be available in the NL.
    Does anyone know if the lighting effect can be turned off, no mention of it in the text?

    The trouble is, you can't really see the sides of your modules in most systems, even with a large window. So they added those cool pulsating LEDs, awesome for the first 5 minutes, then irritating as hell for the next 3 years. Still, these would be great for the Z87-GD45 Gaming rig I just built for my brother (if not for the high price) - no wait, he doesn't even have a side window. I guess he'll have to wait for the modules that project a 10 foot hologram of a dragon into the room, coming in Q3 2017...

    I wouldn't waste my time nor money on there memory. There are a lot of faster lower MHz ram out there just look at Dave's review on this manufacturer. Sure they look neet but try and order and get them customized from them, good luck. They missed out on 2 orders I was going to place with them but to bad so sad.. Snooze ya loose! And IMO they would also go well on a ROG board not only MSI.

    Nice, but no, I'll stay with my G.Skill TridentXs (2x8/2400CL10). Avexir is close to non-existent in my country (barely found these G.Skills on special order to begin with).

    My Z87-GD65 will look amazing either way.

    I would like to see 2400Mhz memory running at 1.35v. Otherwise, any "advancement" will really be moot until DDR4 rolls around.

    I'm with you on this, I don't need it any faster, but I would like lower latency and voltage. But I guess that's the purpose of DDR4, to run at lower volts/better efficiency/lower latency. All you can do right now is buy some way over-priced 3000MHz sticks, underclock them to 2400, and see if they'll run at 1.5v or lower. Totally not worth it, as running at 1.65v doesn't seem to hurt anything, maybe runs a little hotter is all. To me, 2400 is the new 1600, especially since they're similarly priced at the moment.

    I'm not completely sure of that. Even with the higher memory speeds, the CPUs aren't taking huge advantage of it (although APUs certainly are). I still think that this is one of the nicer DIMM options imho: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148657

    Personally, I really dig the 1600 CL8 @ 1.35v. There is a 1866 DIMM by another manuf. but it's CL11. :-/

    There are rumors that the Corsair memory is the same as that low-profile Samsung memory that has overclocked well in the past.
