GeIL aren’t a brand that will first spring to mind when you think about memory. They had lots of success in the DDR1/DDR2 days but since then have gone rather quiet in Europe particularly. This year we have had some big releases from both Intel and AMD by way of Sandy Bridge, AMD 990FX and just recently Sandy Bridge-E, seizing this opportunity GeIL have put all of their efforts into producing a new range of kits designed for these new platforms and chipsets.

Today we will be taking a look at the new EVO CORSA DDR3 range. Though GeIL have kits in different varities we will be looking at a dual channel kit designed for Sandy Bridge. So far we have mostly considered 1600MHz kits in our Sandy Bridge memory reviews but today’s sample sees us venturing into the plains of the elite…. 2133MHz.

GeIL's take on EVO CORSA
Corsa, the Italian word for “race”, hence the name for the 3rd generation of GeIL’s DDR3 Gaming Series Memory - EVO CORSA, which symbolize extreme speed as a race car on the track. The Metallic-Amazon-Green finish of the EVO CORSA heatspreader is derived from the famous German race track - the Nurburgring a.k.a. “the Green Hell”.

The CORSA Heat-spreader is designed with MTCD - Maximum Thermal Conduction & Dissipation for superior cooling performance. Ranging from DDR3 1866MHz and up, the EVO CORSA is designed for the latest Intel & AMD chipsets for maximum performance and compatibility. EVO CORSA is the new DDR3 performance benchmark.
