    GeIL showed off its newest EVO Potenza line of memory modules built for 4th generation Core "Haswell" processors, offering speeds ranging from DDR3-1600 to DDR3-3000, available in 4 GB and 8 GB densities, and as many as four color options for the heatspreaders: military green, indigo, red with black, and silver with chrome. At its booth, GeIL ran a live demo of a system with four 4 GB DDR3-3000 modules running at advertised speeds, with 12-14-14-36 / CL2T, on a Core i7-4770K (ES) based machine. GeIL put some of these modules through makeshift "torture-racks" (enclosures with high temperature and humidity), which survived and went on to work. GeIL uses similar torture-racks on its production line, on a much larger scale, which it calls "Die-hard Burn-in Technology" or DBT. They're used as QA. EVO Potenza will be sold as single modules, and in dual- and quad-channel memory kits.

    I really find green PCB's really ugly nowadays... Especially for RAM modules with heat sinks...

    When installed, the green part mostly gets covered up.

    A lot of DDR3-3000 lately. We need a comparison review test. ;)

    I was thinking the same thing. It also seems to me that haswell performs better with higher clocked memory

    I just laugh at the concerns over hardware colors. Do you folks sit and stare at you PC hardware all day long or do you actually use your PC - as it was intended? Does your PC run better with a different color: fan, PSU, RAM, mobo, GPU, etc. ? I mean really.

    Just saying...

    I have 2933 MHz kit for review, hoping it'll breach 3200 MHz+. I'll have a review ASAP, but It might be a couple of weeks before it gets posted.

    Yeah, you know, because changing PCB color is so simple, yet goes such a long way esthetically, I completely understand why it IS an issue. "The devil is in the details".

    Out of the box, Memory modules look better with a black PCB but as mentioned, once installed the color is moot.

    LAWL at the old version of CPU-Z that doesn't display the CPU type correctly.
