Introduction

Apacer Logo

While memory prices continue to plummet, now is a great time to be looking for memory upgrades. Summer hardware releases are in full swing, there is competition from both Intel and AMD, and the Red brand has thoroughly fixed the memory issues of generations past. No longer do users have to worry about memory compatibility or shopping for expensive AMD-branded kits. With 3200 MHz natively supported on the new Ryzen platform, options for enthusiasts have never been more open. Apacer is a Taiwan-based manufacturer of DRAM and flash storage, and they have prepared for the upgrade rush with the Apacer NOX RGB.

The Apacer NOX RGB comes in speeds of up to 3200 MHz and capacities of up to 32 GB (in a 2x 16 GB configuration) and features an ultra-wide, angled RGB light diffuser to make your system shine from any vantage point. To aid in both appearance and performance, the Apacer NOX RGB also features an aluminium heat spreader in matte black. Finally, it boasts software certifications with all four major motherboard vendors, allowing you to customize and synchronize to match your whole setup.

The Apacer NOX RGB kit I have for testing today is Apacer's top spec model: 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) 3200 MHz at 16-18-18-38 and 1.35 V. That is a solid spec for 16 GB modules; let's see how they stack up.

Packaging


The Apacer NOX RGB packaging is a nicely printed cardboard box. There is a picture of the memory stick in the center, with "Apacer" in the top left and "NOX RGB DDR4 Gaming memory module" in the top right. The bottom left has the model sticker, and the bottom right all the software certification badges. On the back of the box are a few lines in several different languages, as well as cutouts for the spec stickers on the memory sticks.

The packaging looks quite nice, and the printing is excellent.


Inside a traditionally molded plastic tray, the memory sticks are held firmly and kept quite safe from all but the most careless handling.
