Geil Evo Two 2000MHz review

Does the hardcore gaming-focussed RAM impress?

TODO alt text

We liked

When paying a lot of money for any PC component, it's nice to know you're getting quality produce. That's certainly the case with the Geil Evo Two 2,000MHz when it comes to build and engineering. This kit has some seriously swanking cooling. On paper, it also has some impressive specifications including a high operating frequency and low latencies.

We disliked

Good specifications and great build are all very well. But ultimately, performance is the most important metric. By failing to live up to its 2,000MHz specification, this kit falls well short of expectations and somewhat makes a mockery of its own high-quality cooling and construction.
