KLEVV Shows off its CRAS "Creative Evolution" Flagship DDR4 Module

Hong Kong-based KLEVV, which came out of nowhere in 2014 as a premium PC memory vendor, and established itself as a brand to look out for, launched its flagship DDR4 memory module for the year, the CRAS "Creative Evolution" series. This full-height unbuffered DDR4 module is characterized by a tall anodized aluminium heatsink with aluminium protrusions that add to its surface area of dissipation, and a brushed aluminium strip, with either red or white LED lighting.

KLEVV CRAS comes in module densities of 4 GB and 8 GB, in variants of DDR4-2133 (15-15-15 @1.2V), DDR4-2666 (XMP 2.0, 15-15-15 @1.2V); DDR4-2800 (XMP 2.0, 16-16-16 @1.2V), and DDR4-3000 (XMP 2.0, 16-18-18 @1.35V). It will be initially sold in quad-channel kits of 16 GB (4 x 4 GB), and 32 GB (4 x 8 GB); dual-channel kits of 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) and 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) will soon follow.

100% higher than necessary and also 100% more expensive for this lipstick.

I really like the look of these modules.
I would be interested in seeing them in action under pressure.

btarunr, are you certain the eight LEDs are RGB? I’ve heard conflicting information, some say the RED only modules were released first and the WHITE only modules will release after Computex, your article states RGB. I hope you are right, I’ve mailed the company three times and received no response to the question of LED colors on the modules.

Still beautiful, definitely going in my X-99 CaseLabs S8S build in July. :)

LEDs are either white only or red only, depending on which kit you buy

Thanks, only problem is the LED color is not designated when ordering from Newegg, the photos show red, but the text and specs give no indication of which color LED you are ordering.

I don't know where else to order from, wanting a white LED kit.

I'm really excited about this brand becoming more widely available. Their whole design aesthetic is fantastic compared to the rest of the market , Corsair excluded.

I'm currently running the 16GB 3000MHz kit and was able to get them running at 3200MHz stable with respectable 15-15-15-36 (2T) timings. Not bad if you ask me!

I have had four kits, and none ran over 3K speeds. Could be it likes your MSI more than my Asus, but I think you got really lucky there from what I saw.

What kind of numbers are you getting out of your KLEVV kit? It took literally days of tweaking to get mine set. The CPU is still not where I want it, at only 4375MHz. So, I'm sure I'll lose the DRAM stability once I get my CPU up to my goal of 4500.

Even with the CPU at stock none of the kits would move more than 30-40MHz and timings would not budge without dropping channels or causing the PC not to boot. and again, that is trying four different kits of these.

That's not bad at all. I think ill grab a few modules and run some tests of my own. I enjoy nothing more than personally pushing hardware to its limits under in my own environment.

Are you using 4x 4Gb modules ?

Ever considered Lapping your processor and heatsink on the Deepcool Captain 120 ?
I have always found it a great way to get more ooOOoomph out of my CPU. It's also a nice way to destroy your processor if you get it wrong. The trick is patience. I suggest lapping an old processor you don't really care about.

Only ugly if you are pushing it too hard. Imagine those fine LED-strips behind tinted glass, like in an In Win 909. ;)

Have you tried a different motherboard?
