    For a moment I thought the price was going to be reasonable. Your right about that tag putting this RAM in a class all by itself.

    So if the 2250 mhz c9 kit gives it a run for it's money even with the overclock, then one of those 2400 mhz c9 kits probably knocks it out of the park for a fraction of the price? These "fast" kits are starting to feel like a scam. More speed, more money, mediocre performance.

    Avexir totally deserves such a good score. They're incredibly new to the scene and certainly have made a good impression to myself and others in the UK with their surprisingly awesome memory.
    Thanks for the review Dave.

    Can build quite an okey desktop for that price and you wont even notice the difference in Games.

    You are trying to solve a different problem using these.

    they are new, have some good quality cheap ram in the EU

    and by the looks of it have made some very high class niche ram!

    why should I buy a 2000 US memory kit, when I can spending only 150 US, and get similar result in a quad Channel kit?

    [​IMG]

    The CPU and MB is the same price range, i know L1 and L2 is only the half, but memory read and write is very close...

    Image from original test with similar CPU clock to my.

    Those X79 figures are low.


    Also, comparing X79 and Z87 is not correct way to compare, since X79 = quad channel, and Z87 = dual channel. X79 should offer nearly twice the bandwidth (at least mine does:p).

    The memory price isn't just about raw performance, it's about flexibility, rarity, and how it is built.

    What you are saying... is why buy this dual channel kit, it's nearly as fast as my quad kit! :p

    Actually, I agree with Felipe.
    I think it is more sensible that whoever has the money for this kit should not be working on a mainstream z87 platform at all.
    You can get a hexacore and quad channel ram for less money.

    I don't care what someone is trying to accomplish with this RAM, the price is laughable... economically insane, crazy whatever. Lol. I'm sorry, but at that price I would knock at least a full point off of the score. It's just not realistic.

    From what I can gather the purpose of this ram is clock speed records since performance is meh. It's for tweakers paying for the binning, perhaps sponsored ones with money to blow on this stuff. Which brings up another issue; that any model by a company that is below the top model they offer (3200 mhz in this case) is likely useless for the goal of setting clock speed records.

    This kit really is useless as long as that 3200 kit exists. I can't imagine someone who is willing to spend $2000 on high speed ram, obviously to clock it up, is going to pull their punches over another $500. They're going to go for the $2500 kit or go an entirely different route.

    Apparently even Newegg thinks the price is a joke! :laugh:

    The fact that this USD $2000 kit, with performance matched by DDR3-2133/2250 kits, receives the editor's choice award makes me physically sick to my stomach. I am not kidding, I genuinly feel nauseous. It's basically the same feeling when I seeing a bloody hot girl light up a cigarette.

    I have always like TPU for their enthusiast-minded reviews, but this has me turned off completely.

    Sad.

    2 grand for a kit is just insane. I could build a very good system with that amount of moeny.

    Clearly we need to see how these puppies clock under LN2 because these sticks ARE NOT for your regular consumer or even for a regular enthusiest. These sticks are strictly for overclocking and breaking records, not being of optimal performance. I've see this argument made for many high-clocked DIMMs.

    The simple fact is that there comes a point where the CPU can't write to the DRAM fast enough because it takes so many clock cycles to issue a read or write command and that this memory is strictly for seeing "how high it can go."

    Yeah, the price blows, but it's also not supposed to be used in your everyday rig.
