GeIL Super Luce DDR4 3400MHz 16GiB

 GeIL SUPER LUCE DDR4 3400

 

In early 2015, we had a handful of high-speed DDR4 kits from just about all reputable performance memory vendors. The first half of 2015 had these kits listed on online retail stores but they were rarely available to buy. Perpetually out of stock or just announced via press releases, with no real availability. Seemingly, it was just enough to state that a certain kit exists, even though in practice it actually did not. It is in light of this that I was skeptical about GeIL unveiling their Super LUCE memory modules rated at 3400MHz. Keep in mind at the time, the only other 3,400MHz kit on the market was from CORSAIR and that kit was a cool $999 USD.
