Conclusion

Using geizhals as our price research tool, we find that offers for 2x8GB sets of 1866C10 Evo Veloce start at 90 Euros excluding shipping across the EU. Taking a look at similarly clocked kits from other manufacturers shows us that the G.Skill Ares are the cheapest for 67 Euros. Price goes up to 150 Euros with Corsair's Dominator Platinum. From 30 different memory kits the GeIL Evo Veloce are right in the middle price wise.

Being an overclockaholic website, overclockability is one important feature. Sadly, this kit left us with mixed feelings. On one hand the kit can do way better than the specs which is very good. On the other hand it's not easy to work with and the scaling stops at 1.5v for most timings.
Pro:
  • Design fits perfect red/black motherboards
  • IC quality is way better than the specs


  • Con:
  • High heatspreaders
  • You have to play with secondary/tertiary timings in order to stabilize the kit
  • Voltage scaling stops at 1.5v


  • Rating

    The GeIL Evo Veloce GEV316GB1866C10DC kit receives the rating of 4 out of five stars.
