When it comes to RAMs, you can’t just leave the name Galax out of it. The company offers top of the line products, and their high-end GPUs are much widely known and appreciated all over the world. Now they have stepped into the Computer Memory area as well, while also being a center-place for good Solid State Drives (SSDs).
The company which originates in Taiwan has just announced its HOF Extreme Limited Edition DDR4 Memory Kits, which go up to a whopping 5,000 MHz. Galax, the company behind these RAMs showed off these at this year’s Computex.
The Memory Kits dubbed the HOF Extreme Limited Edition DDR4 have quite an appearance. Sadly, the memory modules don’t have a gaming-oriented heat spreader or RGB lighting either, which could have made for a more spectacular look. Yet, with a mirror finished sleek looking, plated in pure gold heat spreader, it doesn’t leave you high and dry, but with an extremely elegant look. In the middle of the heat spreader, you would find the HOF Logo.
As far as the Galax logo is concerned, it sits there at the top of each memory kit. Overall, this makes up for a premium design.
Coming to the specifications, the memory modules are actually a combination of two 8GB memory modules which makes up for a dual-channel 16 GB Memory. The Galax booth displayed all of the products and the standout amongst them was a limited edition kit, known as the creme-de-la-crème, which has a frequency rating at a whopping 5,000 MHz coupled with CL21-26-26-46 timings.
The Operating Voltage of this RAM according to the Galax itself stands at 1.50 V. Though, there wasn’t a live demo offered by Galax, yet this voltage is the absolute maximum allowed for Intel XMP 2.0 profiles.
The Second fasted memory module has a clock speed of 4,700 MHz coupled with timings of CL19-26-26-46, while the operating voltage remains the same, i.e. 1.5V similar to that of the 5,000 MHz memory module.
Not every module was gold-plated: There were chrome-plated modules as well, which doesn’t scream premium. These kits usually had 4,500MHz with timings set to CL19-19-19-39. On the contrary, these have better voltages at 1.4 V, 0.1 V less than the voltage of gold-plated modules. There were matte-white HOF extreme DDR4 kits too clocked at 3,600MHz with CL17-18-18-38 timings and a matte black at the 4,200MHz kit with timings of CL16-18-18-38.
