GeIL, now that's a name we haven't heard in a while. The release of the X79 chipset, though, has brought with it an introduction to many companies we've dealt with in the past, but not so much recently. Talking to GeIL, we wondered what kind of kit we should be checking out today. I was all for some nice high speed Quad Channel memory and it didn't take long for my prayers to be answered with the EVO CORSA PC3-19200 kit we've got on our hands today.
Checking out the EVO CORSA kit, you can see that the look of the module is quite different to what we're used to seeing with quite a different looking heatsink that comes in a Metallic Green finish. I've never been the biggest fan of the color green, but to be honest with more and more companies using it, the color is beginning to grow on me. The Metallic finish that GeIL has gone for here as well looks pretty good.
Even with the green heatsink, though, I found myself wishing that we were looking at some black PCB modules. The green against the green looks a lot better than the green PCB against the black heatsink we've seen from other companies, but a black PCB against anything always looks good.
