Packaging & Closer Look

So taking a look at the packaging of the Avexir Blitz 1.1 Original 8GB kit, Avexir have garnished this kit with a very sleek and premium looking box; it actually feels premium too! On the front it simply says “Blitz Series” which signifies that it is of course from the Blitz series from Avexir; bit of a mouthful that! The main colour scheme of the box is black and the lettering, although it looks gold in the image, it is silver with added reflection of light.

On the rear we keep to the same theme as the rest of the box, but we have a list of features which include the compatibility of XMP and the use of the LED strip on the top; should make for some interesting review time!

Checking out the 8GB kit of 2133MHz CL9 on our table today, the first thing that strikes me is the colour scheme; red and black with an interesting design, one which would be suited to the MSI Gaming series perhaps? We have the Avexir logo on the right side of the module which blends in with the subtle but Aztec drawing like design implemented on the heat sinks.

As you have probably seen in the specifications, this particular kit is the 8GB variant (2x4GB) which has a rated speed of 2133MHz CL9 at 1.65v as standard. This can be set automatically at the flick of a switch in the BIOS for Intel motherboards as this particular memory supports Intel XMP. Like many DDR3 memory kits, the JEDEC standard is 1600MHz CL11 at 1.5v which is nothing overly fascinating but like many products, I believe these ICs (memory chips) to be Hynix MFR; I will elaborate more in the testing.

Avexir are no stranger to implementing LED lighting in their memory kits as the Core series did provide a much-needed variety in the memory world; Corsair Dominators look pretty much identical throughout the range and Crucial have been no different in this regard. It is nice to have a manufacturer willing to take risks and push the boundaries for the benefit of consumers.

If my presumptions about this kit featuring Hynix MFR ICs, then the overclocking part of the review will certainly yield some high numbers; purely speculation at the moment but I wouldn’t be surprised at all!

Below is a video with a quick demonstration of the Avexir Blitz Original 1.1 memory kit; with white LEDs of course!

So now we have seen the red and black Blitz kit, even the bling bling LED lights but let’s see how they actually perform in real word scenarios…
