ADATA 8GB 1600 XPG DDR3 Memory Review Version 2.0 (AX3U1600GC4G9-DG2)

The ADATA 1600mhz Gaming memory arrives in a colourful, tough plastic container which will offer good shipping protection. It is also ideal for retail store presentation as the product is on full view. One of the sticks is positioned at the rear of the box, with space for a third. This means the same packaging can be used for X58 triple memory configurations.

ADATA have opted for a smaller heatspreader size which offers good heat reduction but will still work with the majority of oversized CPU coolers available on the market today. These are operating with 9-9-9 timings at 1,600mhz. The 2,000mhz memory from ADATA we recently reviewed was running with slightly looser timings of 9-11-9.

ADATA are using Hynix H5TQ2G83BFR-H9C memory which is 44nm DDR3 featuring a decreased chip size via copper implemented triple metal layer and WN barrier metal techniques. This Hynix memory offers fully synchronous operations referenced to both rising and falling edges of the clock. While all addresses and control inputs are latched on the rising edges of the CK (falling edges of the CK), Data, Data strobes and Write data masks inputs are sampled on both rising and falling edges of it. The data paths are internally pipelined and 8-bit prefetched to achieve very high bandwidth.

The heatspreaders are held together with two small screws and an adhesive backing. They are easily removed. The black PCB underneath looks great.
