GeIL plans to be the first to market with actively cooled DDR5 memory modules
While DDR5 memory is more efficient than DDR4, that doesn't mean that high-speed DDR5 modules will produce less heat than their DDR5-based equivalents. Yes, DDR5 operates at lower voltages and delivers more performance than DDR5, but other factors can allow high-speed modules to run hot.
With DDR5, a lot of power circuitry moves from your motherboard and onto your DRAM modules, giving these modules more components to cool and increased cooling requirements for high performance modules. This has led many DRAM manufacturers to explore new cooling solutions for their high-speed memory modules. One of those new solutions is actively cooled DRAM heatsinks.
DRAM with Fans? - Not as crazy as you think
With their new EVO V DDR5 RGB series DRAM modules, GeIL are offering users custom titanium gray or glacier white heatsinks with RGB lighting and two integrated fans. These fans move air around their heatsinks to keep their memory DIMMs cool under load. With this enhanced cooling solution, GeIL will keep their modules running within an ideal thermal range, a factor that may increase the overclocking potential of their modules.
GeIL's latest modules will offer speeds that range from 4800 MT/s to 6600 MT/s, and kit capacities of 32GB (2x16GB) and 64 GB (2x32GB). More information about these new GeIL DDR5 memory kits is available below in GeIL's press release.
Press Release - GeIL Launches Actively Cooled DDR5 Memory with Dual RGB Fans
GeIL, is excited to announce the market launch of its EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory kits providing high-frequency modules ranging from 4800 MHz to 6600 MHz and available in large kit capacities of 32 GB to 64 GB. The unique heatspreader design features active cooling and fascinating RGB lighting effects and is available in titanium gray or glacier white color themes.
GeIL EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory offers unparalleled memory performance and stability to meet the intensive demand of hardcore gamers and overclockers across Intel's latest platforms. GeIL has crafted a break-through cooling solution for EVO V modules that integrates a stunning RGB light bar and two micro cooling fans into a single molded aluminium heatshield. Most importantly, the physical height of the heatspreader allows it to be compatible with most CPU coolers on the market without any mechanical interference.
The heatspreader comes in two color options, titanium gray and glacier white,perfectly matching the most popular color themes of high-end motherboards and desktop PC components.Two cooling fans are located in the heatshield's upper right and left corners and provide extra airflow to keep the modules operating in an ideal thermal range. The dual-fan cooling heatshield can provide approximately 45% more thermal dissipation than traditional.
The exceptional architecture of the DDR5 memory is based on locked/unlocked PMIC (Power Management Integrated Circuit), which can provide threshold protection, synchronized voltage monitoring, smart voltage control, and power management to achieve a more comprehensive voltage control under normal and overclocked conditions.
Additionally, the on-chip ECC function enables active error correction to improve data integrity and enhance memory performance and stability.The GeIL EVO V supports the latest Intel XMP 3.0 profiles for precision and stability to auto overclocking, giving users more accessible access to customize and tweaking memory performance. Each module uses strictly sorted ICs and memory chips to offer excellent signal integrity and system performance reliability.
Backed by the limited lifetime warranty, the GeIL EVO V DDR5 RGB Hardcore Gaming Memory will be available in July in major retailers worldwide with speeds from 4800 MHz to 6600 MHz at 1.10 to 1.35 V and capacities from 32 GB to 64 GB.
