I must admit I was unaware of addlink until recently. While the company has been around since its foundation in 2014, addlink is still trying to get a foothold in the market and gain recognition. An increase in the number of companies with system memory products is always welcome. It drives innovation, and fierce competition keeps prices low for consumers.
While addlink may have been around for a number of years at this point, their memory lineup is a short list. Comprising of just the addGame Spider X4, the memory comes in a few flavors. The Spider X4 SKUs range from 3200 MT/s to 4200 MT/s, with listed DIMM sizes being 8 GB, 16 GB, and 32 GB. In this review, we will cover the addGame Spider X4 RGB DDR4-3600 (2x 8 GB) kit rated for 3600 MT/s.
The addlink addGame Spider X4 RGB DDR4-3600 16 GB kit I have for review today has a 3600 MT/s XMP profile with 18-22-22-42 timings operating at 1.35 V. As such, this memory is well-suited for a wide range of computers due to a lower operating frequency being ideal for AMD CPUs and hassle-free for Intel-based users. In this review, we will be testing the memory at its advertised speed before looking into what a bit of tuning can give us in terms of extra performance. Without further ado, let's now see how this addlink addGame Spider X4 RGB kit stacks up to the competition!
