ADATA XPG DDR3 2133 Memory Kit

Adata XPG DDR3 2133 Memory KitI am old enough to remember when home PCs started to become more and more popular however, upgrades to the PCs were extremely expensive. A 250 megabyte hard drive, that’s right I said megabyte, could cost upwards of $500.00 and RAM was extremely expensive. I remember the cost of an 8 megabyte module being over $1000.00. Thankfully the laws of supply and demand took place and these upgrades are no where near those costs any more. A decent 8 Gigabyte memory kit can be had for less than $50.00.

ADATA has recently released their high performance XPG memory kits to the masses. The kits come in the 8 and 16 Gigabyte flavors with a variety of speeds and timings. The ADATA XPG DDR3 2133 memory kits feature a heat spreader with unique channels and cooling properties. How does this kit fare in our tests? Read on to find out.
