External SSDs are replacing external hard disks at a rapid pace. It’s smaller, lighter, yet more durable and resilient against bumps and drops. Plus, external SSDs are also much faster than hard disks. Yet external SSDs are also very affordable nowadays.There are even some ways to “create” your own external SSDs but to make things as simple as possible, we have the KLEVV R1. This is an all-in-one solution with a high-speed SSD inside.And I’ve been using the KLEVV R1 for the past week or so – and this is what I discovered
Okay, let’s start with the unboxing. The KLEVV R1 comes in a very simple box. Inside, we have a user manual, the SSD itself, and also a very interesting cable. It’s a flat Y-cable so that you can use the KLEVV R1 with either USB-A or USB-C ports on your computer. That’s great.
Taking a look at the KLEVV R1, it’s sleek in design. It has a distinct two-tone design as it has an angular design at the front, and a semitransparent back and we can see the copper heatsink on the SSD. We’ll get back into that later.
At the top of the SSD, we have a tiny indicator LED and a USB-C port.
When I plugged in the KLEVV R1 into the MacBook Pro, it immediately worked. That is because KLEVV formatted it to exFAT, so that it is compatible with all operating systems. Windows, Mac, Linux – including Android and even Chromebook.
By the way, every purchase of the KLEVV R1 also comes with a free license for the DoYourData data recovery software. As the name suggests, it is used for data restoration if you accidentally deleted some files off your storage drive. Then, I went back to my desktop and benchmarked the KLEVV R1. The benchmark results were kind of expected from an external SSD of this caliber. It will reach somewhere around the advertised 1000MB/s sequential read/write speed and I’m impressed there.
While doing all of these stress tests though, I realized that the SSD got quite warm. The hottest part is always at the top, near the USB-C port because I think that is where the controller chip is located. From our thermal camera, it reached around 48°C, whereas the back reaches around 51°C. Those temperatures are definitely safe for the SSD and there is nothing to worry about.
Then, I copied everything from my current external SSD to the KLEVV R1 and the KLEVV R1 actually performs better. Scrubbing footages feel responsive, copying large footage is also faster, and most importantly – this SSD is smaller and sleeker.
But, we’re not done. Taking a look at the KLEVV R1 again, there are 4 screws at the back that can be taken out and the entire KLEVV R1 can be dismantled.
It is here that we can see the overall construction is fairly simple. We have the copper heatsink, then a piece of thermal pad, andfinally – the SSD itself.
The SSD used here is a standard M.2 2280 NVMe SSD and we can take it out of the mainboard and perhaps “upgrade” the KLEVV R1 by installing a 2TB SSD if we choose to do so.Should you buy the KLEVV R1 external portable SSD?Here’s the thing – the KLEVV R1 that we have is the 1TB version and it is priced at RM649 or USD $130.99. This is actually quite a good deal considering that if we are to buy a 1TB NVMe SSD and a reliable, high-speed external SSD enclosure separately, it will cost about the same as the KLEVV R1 1TB version. That excludes the headaches and compatibility checks, too.So, the KLEVV R1 is actually a good price. It works out of the box across all operating systems and performs just as well as advertised.Where to buy? (Affiliate links)Amazon USLazadaShopee
Increased capacity per DIMM, higher memory bandwidth, and higher frequency at lower voltage are some of the new aspects you’ll get on DDR5, and with Intel launching its 12th Gen Core processors and Z690 motherboards, we’re finally able to experience the long-awaited DDR5 memory for the first time.With DDR5, we can see high frequencies DDR5 memory modules like DDR5-5600, DDR5-6000, or more. While most of the high-frequency DDR5 modules that come with a heat spreader are the ones that can be overclocked beyond the rated speed because of the unlocked voltage for VDD and VDDQ, that doesn’t mean that you can’t overclock the less appealing looking generic DDR5 memory modules.So for this article, we’ll share with you our experience overclocking the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM, a generic DDR5 memory module with its VDD and VDDQ locked at 1.435V – or is it?
SpecificationsFormatDDR5 Unbuffered DIMMCapacity16GB (16GB x1), 32GB (16GB x2)Speed4800MT/sDimension (LxWxH)133.35 x 31.25 x 31.8mmWarrantyLimited Lifetime WarrantyLatencies40-40-40-77Voltage1.1VOperating Temperature0℃ to 85 ℃Overview
The KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM we have here comes with a rated speed of DDR5-4800 and timings of CL40-40-40. You can easily get it working on a Z690 without any further adjustments but unlike the fancier looking DDR5 memory kits, it doesn’t come with an XMP profile. So you’re technically stuck with DDR5-4800 if you don’t plan to do any further tweaking on it.There are, however, some motherboard manufacturers that included an optimized profile in their BIOS for selected motherboards so these generic DDR5 memory modules that don’t come with an XMP profile can also run at a much higher frequency for that extra performance when needed.Test SystemCPUIntel Core i9-12900KMotherboardASUS ROG MAXIMUS Z690 APEXMemoryKLEVV DDR5 U-DIMMGraphics CardNVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080Power SupplyCooler Master V1200 PlatinumPrimary StorageKingston KC3000Secondary StorageWD Black 6TBCPU CoolerCooler Master MasterLiquid PL360 FluxChassisCooler Master MasterFrame 700Operating SystemWindows 11 64bit
For our simple test here, we’re using the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex to put the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM to the test. One interesting option that is available here is that ASUS has a built-in profile known as the ASUS Enhanced Memory Profile or AEMP for short that allows the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM to run at DDR5-6000 CL38-38-38. It works just like the usual XMP profile we’ll find on the more expensive memory modules. Now that we have technically gained some free performance boost for the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM, let’s get on with how we can squeeze a bit more performance out of it. If your motherboard has a built-in memory profile, you can try to make use of these profiles for your memory kits as these are the profiles specially optimized by the engineers from the motherboard manufacturers.
In the memory profile list, we can see some familiar names like Micron, Samsung, and SK Hynix, which are the major memory chip manufacturers. So, these are the optimized profiles that are specifically prepared for each memory chip.
The KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM we have here are using the memory chips from SK Hynix, which can easily identify with the printing on the memory chips on the module. As of now, SK Hynix memory chips have been a popular choice among enthusiasts in the overclocking community mainly because of their excellent overclocking capability. After selecting the profile, you can save the settings and restart your system to give it a test. You can run a memory stability test using programs like HCI Memtest Pro, Karhu Ram Test, or TestMem5 to see if your settings are stable enough to handle your daily tasks. If the tests failed, you’ll have to get back into the BIOS and do some adjustments to the timings or voltages that are related to the memory.
So, here’s one issue you might face when dealing with non-XMP kits like the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM – the VDD and VDDQ voltage will be limited to 1.435V max. So if you need more voltage to get through the memory stress tests, you will have features that allow you to bypass the limit, which is something that the ASUS ROG Maximus Z690 Apex here can do with its High DRAM Voltage Mode. Of course, increasing the voltage also means that you’ll get a higher load temperature on the memory kit. As the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM doesn’t come with a heat spreader of its own, you’ll have to find the sweet spot settings so it doesn’t get too hot. In our case, we settled down with DDR5-6000 CL30, which is the sweet spot for us.Final Thoughts
Despite its generic appearance, the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM can actually clock pretty well thanks to the SK Hynix memory chips. Pairing it with a motherboard that offers the voltage limit bypass can get you even further with this kit but then again, it’s only for those who want to push the kit to its absolute limit. With a decent Z690 chipset motherboard, you can easily go up to DDR5-6400 with the same stock timings without having to go beyond the 1.435V voltage limit for non-XMP kits like the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM.I personally enjoy playing around with the settings to get some free performance gain in games and the only thing to take note of about the KLEVV DDR5 U-DIMM is probably the thermals, as it’s a generic kit that doesn’t have any heat spreader preinstalled. A reasonable custom cooling solution is required for those who plan to take it to an extreme length.All in all, it’s a fine memory kit to have as long as you manage to keep the temperature under control. For the price of RM 1279, I’d say it’s fair for what it can actually deliver despite not having the ‘gamer’ look that is more appealing to most users nowadays. If you don’t plan to go with a tight timing that requires higher voltages, you can still easily get a DDR5-6000 result with the default timings using a lower voltage value like 1.3V.ProsReasonable overclocking headroom with SK Hynix chipsMore performance can be unlocked if paired with motherboards that can bypass the PMIC voltage limitCan operate at high frequencies with a lower voltage compared to DDR4ConsA heat spreader is required if you plan to go very high on the memory frequencyWhere to buy?

YOU DO KNOW THE PS5018-E18 CONTROLLER THOUGHThe KLEVV CRAS C920 1TB NVMe SSD was for sale on Amazon for an impressively low $165, though for now it seems to have disappeared, though there is still some KLEVV CRAS DDR4 kits still floating around so presumably the company hasn’t disappeared. The brand is certainly not one you would name if asked to list PCIe 4.0 SSDs, but the Phison PS5018-E18 is certainly familiar and their five year warranty is a good thing to see. Along with 1024GB of “strictly selected 3D TLC NAND” it has a 1GB DDR cache, all of which is easy to see thanks to the decision not to include a heatspreader with the drive.In ServeTheHome’s testing the KLEVV CRAS C920 performed somewhat comparably to the Gigabyte AORUS 7000s overall, with sequential reads between 5000-7000 MB/s and 5000 MB/s random write, apart from ATTO which did not seem to like this drive at all. The speed of the drive is a little lower overall compared to other PCIe 4.0 drives, but then again so is the price making it somewhat attractive.There are two caveats to this, the first being that ServeTheHome didn’t find an easy RMA process from KLEVV, which could lead to frustration if you end up having issues. The second is that with great PCIe 3.0 drives being even less expensive, is it wise to shop on the lower end of PCIe 4.0 drives at this time?Today we are taking a look at the KLEVV CRAS C920 1TB NVMe SSD. KLEVV is a brand I had never heard of before; Patrick went looking for drives on Amazon and ran across the KLEVV drives at a decent price and thought they might warrant a look.

PC 성능을 강제로 끌어올리는 행위를 오버클럭이라고 하며, 이런 오버클럭이 가능한 하드웨어는 CPU와 VGA(그래픽카드) 그리고 램이 있다. 가장 익숙한 것은 단연 CPU일 것이고 VGA도 언더볼팅을 통해서 적절한 클럭과 전압을 찾아서 오버클럭을 하는 유저들이 많다. 하지만 최근에는 이런 CPU와 VGA보다 램 오버클럭을 하는 것이 고사양 게임을 하는데 프레임 향상에 더 도움이 된다는 정보가 많이 쏟아지면서 오버클럭의 트렌드가 램으로 바뀌고 있는 것이 사실이다. 성능 향상을 위해 게임을 즐기는 유저라면 램 오버클럭에 대한 욕심이 있고 이에 대한 정보도 쉽게 접할 수 있지만 선뜻 다가가기에 멀게만 느껴진다. 많은 시간과 노력을 투자해서 안정화를 해야 하는 작업을 거쳐야만 하기 때문이다. 또한 램 자체의 수율에 따라서 천차만별로 달라지게 되는지라 목표를 지정해보자면 한 클럭에 쉽게 도달할 수도 있고 그렇지 않을 수도 있는 복불복 성격도 강한 편이다. 이러한 번거로운 안정화 시간을 투자하지 않고도 램 제조회사에서 오버클럭값을 설정하여 바이오스 상에서 클릭 한 번으로 성능을 향상할 수 있는 튜닝램을 판매하고 있다. 수많은 안정화 테스트를 거쳐서 수율이 선별된 램 모듈을 사용하여 제조 판매를 하므로 초고클럭의 램이 아닌 이상은 대부분의 시스템에서 별도의 안정화 작업 없이 바로 사용할 수 있다. 이번에 살펴볼 제품은 "불 좀 꺼줄래?" 광고의 주인공, ESSENCORE KLEVV DDR4-3600 CL18 CRAS X RGB 패키지 (16GB(8Gx2))이다. https://www.inven.co.kr/webzine/news/?news=255429&site=klevv
KLEVV CRAS XR RGB wins in ‘Product Design’ category of 2021 Reddot Design Award, which is well recognized as one of the top 3 global design awards. The CRAS series, serves as KLEVV’s high-end product lineup, has been honored to receive this valuable design award since 2015. KLEVV CRAS XR RGB has been specially designed to create unique atmosphere and experience by considering space and people together by breaking away from the existing design of common colorless PC components. Sophisticated corner rounding of KLEVV CRAS XR RGB memory is giving symbolism to PC component that requires fast data processing and high performance, with the motif of racing tracks. Also the light flow produced by RGB spectrum was inspired by trajectory of light drawn by a moving object with a sense of speed.
Not every piece of computer memory needs to have fancy heatsinks or flashy illumination. There are still those among us that appreciate the simpler things and prefer the insides of their systems to not look like a dance hall. If you belong to that crowd, Klevv`s Bolt XR series of memory fits the description nicely. Today we`ll put the company`s Bolt XR DDR4-3600 C18 memory kit, which comes with a density of 32GB spread across two 16GB memory modules, to the test to see how well it performs against other flashier kits. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/klevv-bolt-xr-ddr4-3600-c18-2x16gb-review
Essencore, which commercializes its memory under the Klevv branding, isn`t a rookie in the memory game, either. The company has been around since 2014 and has built up a pretty diverse portfolio of memory products over the years. On this occasion, the brand sent over its Cras XR RGB DDR4-4000 memory to prove that it has what it takes to play with the big boys. The Cras XR RGB memory modules feature a low-profile design that doesn`t measure more than 42.5mm (1.67 inches) tall. The pure aluminium heat spreader flaunts an ordinary but jazzy, dotted design. As its name implies, the Cras XR RGB comes with a user-controllable RGB LED diffuser with rounded edges. https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/klevv-cras-xr-rgb-ddr4-4000-c19-2x8gb-review
Today dear people we will be taking a look at a little known memory manufacturer as far as us westerners are concerned, Klevv are a manufacturer of not just memory but other components like SSD and SD cards as well they have been around for about 6 years now so long enough to know they won’t just disappear overnight. Today in this people’s review we will be looking at the 3600MHz 32GB kit of Klevv Bolt X KD4AGU880-36A180U, will the kit be as fast as a lightning bolt as Klevv claim I wonder? Let’s find out. https://www.overclockers.co.uk/forums/threads/review-klevv-bolt-x-32gb-3600mhz-kd4agu880-36a180u.18917466/
Finally we got our hands on a Hynix DJR RAM.many say is easier to overclock (since much newer than Hynix CJR).... so I gave it a shot to 4000Mhz and I wasnt disappointed. Even without RGB the bronze metal finish lock good on my B550 Asrock Steel Legend and also (my upcoming review) Z490 Asrock Taichi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqisQAH1Pu0

KLEVV는 CRAS X RGB 메모리와 CRAS C700 RGB NVMe SSD를 통해 RGB LED가 적용된 튜닝 제품을 선보였습니다. KLEVV CRAS 시리즈는 크리스탈을 연상케하는 히트싱크 디자인에 RGB LED를 적용하여 경쟁사 제품과는 다른 매력을 보여주고 있습니다. 여기에 ASUS AURA SYNC, MSI Mystic Light, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, ASRock Polychrome RGB, Razer Chroma 등 각 제조사의 LED 연동 기술을 지원해 다른 PC 하드웨어와 하나처럼 유기적으로 작동하는 모습까지 보여주고 있습니다. 프로세서는 AMD 라이젠 5 3600X(마티스)입니다. 2세대 개선된 젠 2(ZEN 2) 아키텍처가 적용되었으며, 코어 다이가 작아졌습니다. 이런 공간상 이점으로 인해 CCD(Client Compute Die)라고 새롭게 정의한 8코어 다이를 최대 2개까지 장착할 수 있게 되었습니다. 금전적인 부담이 그나마 적으면서 게이밍 시스템을 꾸릴 수 있는 마지노선이라고 할 수 있는 라인업이 바로 라이젠 5/코어 i5 라인업이라 할 수 있습니다. 실제로 해당 라인업은 제조사를 막론하고 높은 판매고를 올린 제품이기도 합니다KLEVV CRAS II RGB를 시작으로 본격적으로 메모리에 RGB LED를 사용한 ESSENCORE는 ASUS, GIGABYTE, MSI, ASRock, Razer 등 주요 제조사에서 제공하는 RGB LED 동기화 기술을 지원합니다.ESSENCORE KLEVV CRAS X RGB 메모리는 하나에 8개의 LED 소자가 들어가 있어 훨씬 다채로운 표현이 가능합니다. RGB LED가 표현되는 LED 바의 면적도 다른 메모리보다 굵직하고 크기 때문에 훨씬 예뻐 보이기도 하죠. 또한 최대 단일 16GB 용량과 3,466MHz의 작동 속도를 지원하기 때문에 성능도 뛰어납니다.https://quasarzone.co.kr/bbs/board.php?bo_table=qc_qsz&wr_id=321182

Indonesian IT/Hardware community PemmzChannel introduced KLEVV BOLT 2x4GB 2400 MHz and CRAS II 2x8GB 3000MHz memory together with AMD RYZEN platform! Please find the video review for the details on KLEVV memory.
Korean no.1 IT/Hardware community Quasarzone took video review for all of KLEVV memory products at one glance. In this column, they took a look at all the memory (RAM) released by KLEVV at once from DDR3 memory released in 2015, to the KLEVV DDR4 CRAS X RGB that has been introduced in the recent quasarzone column. There are almost 12 kinds of them. Quasarzone said there are quite a few companies that release such a wide variety of memory and it's even more surprising to consider that the history of KLEVV is not so long. Especially KLEVV's memory products have different designs despite their large number of product types. They have their own individuality, and LED memory support has been introduced for a long time. From standard memory to RGB DDR4 gaming memory, please take a look on column and video clips on the following!
SK Hynix’s subsidiary KLEVV has introduced its new client SSDs based on the manufacturer’s 72-layer 3D NAND flash. The KLEVV NEO N500 drives are aimed at entry-level desktops and laptops that accept SATA drives. As entry-level products, the SSDs are priced low, and in fact are already available at retail.The KLEVV NEO N500 family consists of three models featuring 120 GB, 240 GB, and 480 GB capacities, which are popular configurations for inexpensive SSDs these days. The drives come in a 2.5-inch/7-mm form-factor and use a SATA 6 Gbps interface, which makes them drop-in compatible with existing desktops and laptops that use DFF storage. The NEO N500 are based on Silicon Motion’s SM2258XT controller as well as SK Hynix’s 72-layer 3D TLC NAND memory. The SM2258XT controller has been available for some time now and its features and capabilities are well known: it has four NAND flash channels, LDPC ECC technology, and it supports pseudo-SLC (pSLC) caching in order to maximize SSD performance.It's noteworthy that while we've seen the SM2258XT controller time and time again, the NAND itself is relatively new. So there may be some significance to the fact that the official performance specifications of KLEVV’s NEO N500 drives puts them below other drives using the same controller with other 3D NAND. According to the manufacturer, the drives are able to hit up to 520 MB/s sequential read speeds and up to 500 MB/s sequential write speeds. As for random performance, KLEVV does not disclose exact specs, but the SM2258/SM2258XT controllers are rated for up to 90,000 read IOPS and up to 80,000 write IOPS. Evidently, high-capacity drives offer higher sequential and random performance than their lower-capacity counterparts. The KLEVV NEO N500-series SSDs are positioned below the company’s own NEO N600-series drives based on the SM2256 and planar TLC memory, which is not surprising as the new drives offer lower performance. What is a bit surprising is that unlike other suppliers of SSDs, KLEVV decided not to build high-performance drives based on 3D NAND using controllers from a third party or SK Hynix’s own silicon. The new NEO N500 SSDs from KLEVV are covered by a three-year warranty. All versions of the drives are already available in Europe. Based on data from Geizhals.at, the 120 GB version costs €33 ($39), the 240 GB model is priced at €58 ($69), whereas the 480 GB SKU is available for €105 ($123).
The South Korean company SK Hynix had come out with the 72 layer NAND memory last year, which put it on edge with it’s larger competitors like Samsung and Micron. Initially, the technology was intended for the larger partners of the company. Now the company has decided to use the 72 layer NAND technology to make consumer products.KLEVV the daughter company under SK Hynix released a series of the Neo N500 solid-state drives. These drives will be featuring a 2.5-inch form factor and would connect through a 6GB/s SATA interface. The N500 is designed for the budget line consumers will have 3 models distinguished by their capacities, being the 120, 240 and 480 GB models. As of the insides, it will be using the Silicon Motion SM2258XT, which has been observed to do well in most entry-level SSDs. The SSD will have a whopping top read speed of 520 MB/s and write speed of 500 MB/s. The package will include a licensed copy of Acronis True Image HD. The drives make use of the SLC caching algorithm and also support LDPC ECC Engine technology and Global Wear Leveling, the drives also come with a 3 year manufacturer warranty.The 72-layer 3D NAND developed solely by SK Hynix is their most dense offering. This is a fourth generation 3D flash chip, also having a very efficient 3rd Vertical Cell configuration. The Neo N500 SSD has already landed in the European market with a retail price of € 27.5 for the 120 GB model, € 52 for the 240 GB model and € 94 for the 480 GB model.
Klevv is preparing an RGB M.2 NVMe SSD based on the Silicon Motion SM2263 architecture called the CRAS X RGB. The 4-channel drive uses a PCIe 3.0 x4 host interface with assistance from a DRAM buffer (the SM2263XT is the DRAMless version). The heatsink on the display drive was not finalized, but a representative told us to expect something very similar with defused lighting. The architecture doesn't matter too much; the big draw here is the RGB LED feature. Klevv is working on a solution to address the disco lighting. The PCIe bus and NVMe protocol are quite different from USB and system memory, so a new software suite will need to communicate commands to the drive. NVMe was designed to streamline commands to reduce latency, so there is very little to play with to make the drive addressable RGB, and Klevv is determined to build RGB communication to the controller without attaching a cable and header to an already cable-less drive. Klevv also designed matching system memory coming to market under the CRAS X RGB name. This memory supports the Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light software. The clock speed and timings are not known at this time but the demo showed up to 45,663 MB/s read and 52,370 MB/s write speed--much faster than the SSD reading 1,752 MB/s and writing 1,486 MB/s with 128KB sequential data.
Klevv, a subsidiary of SK Hynix, has been around for quite a while targeting mass retail market with mainstream DRAM and SSD products. Recently Klevv decided to address the growing market of gamers and PC enthusiasts with more advanced offerings featuring fancy cooling systems and above-average performance. At Computex, the brand is demonstrating its upcoming RGB-lit products that will hit the market in late summer or early autumn.As noted above, up until now Klevv has offered products with rather mediocre specs that would hardly attract performance-demanding enthusiasts despite their look. With its upcoming Cras X RGB modules, Klevv will change that and offer 8 GB and 16 GB memory sticks rated for DDR4-3200 (CL16 18-18-38) and DDR4-3466 (CL17 19-19-39) operation at 1.35 V. This is still not quite the level of “extreme” modules from well-known suppliers, but it is a step in the right direction. Furthermore, at data transfer rates of up to 3466 MT/s, Klevv can guarantee compatibility with virtually all today’s platforms, including AMD Ryzen and Intel Core. Since the product is still in development, Klevv does not really want to share its performance numbers, but since SMI has already published its performance specs, we can expect the Cras C700 to offer something in the range of 2.4 GB/s for sequential read speed as well as up to 1.7 GB/s sequential write speed. The SM2263 is not exactly an enthusiast-grade controller from SMI’s perspective, but after Klevv/SK Hynix learn its behavior, they may adopt a more advanced SMI silicon for a more advanced SSD.
DDR4 is starting to replace DDR3 memory slowly but surely. Prices are going down and it’s being mainstreamed as well. Before, only high end desktops or X99 platforms are able to take advantage of the DDR4’s speed. Now, with the new Intel 100 series express chipset (on Z170 motherboards), mainstream users, gamers and enthusiasts are also able to take advantage of the DDR4 memory as well. Today, we are going to review the Klevv Cras DDR4 3000MHz 16GB quad channel memory kit from Essencore. The names “Essencore” and “Klevv” may be new to you since the company just started last 2014 and with the full launch of their products this early 2015. We have reviewed their Klevv Genuine, Klevv Urbane and Neo DDR3 memory modules before and now it’s time to put their flagship memory to the test. The Klevv Cras DDR4 quad channel kit we have here is originally designed for X99 systems, but it doesn’t mean you can’t use them with the new Intel Z170 motherboards. In this review, we will be testing the Cras together with an X99 motherboard and a Z170 motherboard. Check out our full review below and find out how good (or bad) this memory is.
Einleitung Mit Klevv ist seit Kurzem eine neue Marke im Arbeitsspeicher-Segment aktiv. Wir durften das Klevv Cras 16 GB DDR4 3000 CL16 Kit auf den Prüfstand schicken! Über Klevv Essencore Limited wurde im März 2014 durch die SK Group, Südkoreas drittgrößtem Mischkonzern (zu dem auch der Speicherlieferant SK Hynix gehört), gegründet. Das Unternehmen hat es sich zum Ziel gesetzt, einer der weltbesten Anbieter von DRAM- und NAND-Flash-Produkten zu werden. Mit der eigenen Premiummarke "KLEVV" erweitert Essencore das Portfolio um Gaming-Speichermodule, Micro-SDs, USB Flash Drives und Solid State Drives.

Verarbeitung Das neue DRAM-Modul der Cras-Familie zeichnet sich in erster Linie durch hohe Geschwindigkeiten aus. Mit neu gestalteten Heatspreadern präsentiert sich der Cras in einem besonders dynamischen Design und fügt sich so in die Optik der neuesten Generation von Hardware-Komponenten ein. Durch die optimierte Wärmeableitung wird der Speicher noch zuverlässiger. Das Speicherkit wurde vorbildlich verarbeitet. Verarbeitungsmängel konnten wir an unserem Testmuster nicht feststellen. Lediglich die billige Verpackung trübt den Gesamteindruck etwas. Klevv Speicher der Cras DDR4 Serien besitzen zehn Jahre Garantie. Unser Testmuster gibt es wahlweise mit roter oder weißer LED-Beleuchtung. Technik und Leistung Neben der sehr guten Kühltechnik haben die Techniker von Klevv auch eine Intel XMP-2.0-Profil-Unterstützung* springen lassen. Puncto Leistung gibt es an unserem Testmuster nichts zu bemängeln. Das Speicherkit lässt sich problemlos auf 3.200 MHz übertakten. Die Spannung muss hierfür nicht weiter angehoben werden. Diese bleibt in unserem Fall auf 1.35 Volt eingestellt. Auch die Latenz bleibt unverändert bei CL16. *Erklärung XMP 2.0: Extreme Memory Profiles 2.0 (XMP) sind von Intel eingeführte Zertifizierungen für DDR4-Speichermodule aus dem PC-Bereich. Diese Zertifizierung soll die Ausnutzung der Speichergeschwindigkeit erleichtern und dabei einen stabilen Betrieb garantieren. Der neue DDR4 Arbeitsspeicher Zusammen mit den Haswell-E Prozessoren wurde auch der neue DDR4 Arbeitsspeicher veröffentlicht, der für sämtliche 2011er-v3-Plattformen benötigt wird. Optisch auffälligster Unterschied ist neben der gestiegenen Anzahl an Kontakten gegenüber DDR3, die geschwungene Form des DIMMs, wodurch die Montage vereinfacht werden soll. In Sachen Leistung gibt es eine ordentliche Erhöhung bei der Taktfrequenz: Fast alle erhältlichen DDR4-Riegel takten mit mindestens 2.133 MHz, wohingegen bei DDR3 aktuell 1866 MHz oder 1600 MHz Standard ist. Auch wurde die Versorgungsspannung auf 1.2 Volt gesenkt - DDR3 benötigt 1.5 Volt.

So what does the close tie to SK Hynix give KLEVV? Preference on DRAM batches and their operating capabilities would be good assumptions as to some of the factors that a close business tie allows.
We are looking at KLEVV‘s flagship DDR4 memory line ? the Cras series. The specific kit that we are examining is KLEVV’s fastest available set of memory with operational characteristics of 3200MHz and 16-18-18 timings in a 16GB set.
KLEVV uses premium packaging to house the four sticks of memory. One slight misfortune of using such premium packaging is that potential buyers are given no look at the memory styling before opening the box.
Four 4GB sticks form our 16GB memory kit. KLEVV also sells Cras memory in 8GB (2x4GB), 16GB (2x8GB), and 32GB (4x8GB) capacities with a range of frequencies.
Styling of the modules is very appealing. A silver strip with branding names on either side splits a black, patched plate-style heatspreader. I am pleased to report that KLEVV is using a black PCB, despite how little is shown past the sizable heatsink.
At 56mm-tall, around 20mm taller than a DDR4 memory stick’s PCB, KLEVV’s Cras modules are certain to cause interference with the biggest CPU heatsinks. The solid metal heatsinks will help those looking to push voltages, however they are more of an interfering inconvenience or piece of eye-candy at the default operating frequency. Our stress testing never saw the modules’ recorded temperatures rise above 40C.
Branding of the KLEVV name and the Cras memory series is highlighted on the silver heatsink strip. The heatsink can be disassembled and removed thanks to accessible hexagonal screws.
The enthusiast orientation for KLEVV’s Cras memory modules is identifiable by the ease at which the heatspreader can be removed. Many enthusiast overclockers will be eager to remove the stock heatsinks, slap on some LN2-capable kit, and crank the voltage until the underlying SK Hynix memory ICs show their potential at higher frequencies.
A transparent strip running along the heatsink’s top edge allows LED lighting to be shone from the modules. Our kit uses red LEDs, although a white alternative is available.
I did not find a way to disable the static LEDs, so that could be an annoyance for users whose colour scheme or individual preference does not call for red or white lighting.

Review: Klevv Cras DDR4 3000Klevv ya no es una marca desconocida para nosotros, sus memorias Genuine DDR3 nos sorprendieron gratamente por su diseño extraordinario, su buen comportamiento térmico y sus buenos resultados de frecuencia. Ahora nos acercaremos a su modelo más exclusivo, las Cras DDR4.
Klevv acabara siendo una de las marcas más llamativas de memorias, no nos cabe la menor duda. Sus diseños son de todo menos convencionales y aunque los precios son elevados son competencia directa de otras marcas de gama alta y a día de hoy van un paso por delante en cuanto a concebir diseños que revolucionen el concepto que tenemos de módulo de memoria RAM.
Los módulos que hoy os presentamos son su opción más exclusiva. Si los Genuine os parecieron algo fuera de lo normal los nuevos Cras son simplemente impactantes. Un diseño cuidado que potencia la refrigeración de las memorias, con acabados de altísima calidad y un toque de color que distingue a estas memorias de cualquier otra memoria que hayamos visto.
Mejoras de la DDR4
Los procesos de fabricación mejorados de este nuevo formato de memoria permiten a la DDR4 reducir sus consumos hasta en un 20% y aumentar las frecuencias de forma notable. El estándar para equipos de sobremesa son los 1.2v y se anticipan formatos de consumo reducido que usaran voltajes oficiales de 1.05v. Esto ayudara a la nueva generación de equipos de sobremesa y portátiles más eficientes y con mayor autonomía (en el caso de los portátiles, claro).Este proceso de fabricación mejorado también traerá consigo aumentos notables en las frecuencias de trabajo. Las memorias DDR3 comenzaron en frecuencias de 800-1066MHz, hace ya unos cuantos años. Ahora los modelos más avanzados alcanzan los 3200MHz. La memoria DDR4 ha comenzado su escalada de frecuencias desde los 2133MHz y ya es fácil encontrarla por encima de los 3200MHz. En pocos meses la estaremos viendo por encima de los 4GHz con anchos de banda desconocidos hasta el momento.
Sus densidades también son mayores, será más fácil encontrarlos hasta en configuraciones de 16GB por modulo (en el mercado doméstico, en el profesional esta capacidad se duplicara con facilidad) y los precios, por la reducción de costes que implica, también se verán afectados. Si ahora nos parece algo normal tener ordenadores portátiles con 8GB o sobremesas con 16GB, según se estandarice esta memoria lo habitual será tener el doble de esta capacidad en ordenadores domésticos.Aun así no todo son ventajas. La memoria DDR4 utiliza latencias más altas precisamente por su avance en el uso de frecuencias más altas y voltajes más bajos. Las latencias son tiempos de espera que necesita la memoria para ejecutar diferentes operaciones en su estructura de celdas. Cuanta más latencia más lento pero esto se compensara con creces con el aumento de frecuencias que experimentaremos con este nuevo formato de memoria.
Testing products from unknown manufacturers is always a source for entertainment for all the sides involved. While the reviewer gains experience points and reader gets useful information, the maker is also served with its dose of adrenaline by hoping that the product leaves a positive first impression thus allowing the business to exist further down the road.Today happens to be another one of such days when we see a new Korean memory player, called Essencore, make their first steps against such titans of the memory market as Corsair, G.Skill and Kingston. You probably haven't heard of Essencore either, but this is the maker behind the Klevv memory brand that has recently been making some noise in North America. Klevv's current DDR3 menu contains Neo, Urbane and Genuine series in an ascending price order. Since we prefer to start our adventures at a low pace, today's test subject is an entry-level DDR3 model. Manufacturer Essencore Series Klevv Neo Part Number KM3N4GX2C-1600-09-09-09-24-0 Type DDR3 Capacity 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) Frequency 800 MHz (DDR3-1600) Timings 9-9-9-24 Voltage 1.5 V Warranty Lifetime warrantyThe kit in our hands is officially the slowest Klevv memory money can currently buy. Aside from a funky part number, there is absolutely nothing that would make it stand out from the sea of competitor 8GB dual-channel kits rated at DDR3-1600 CL9.
Having braced ourselves for some el-cheapo treatment, we were pleasantly surprised by the packaging. Using foam padding to protect the memory is something that very few memory makers currently do, let alone on the basic models. And yes, the box is much whiter than the stuff you usually see in toothpaste commercials.
The styling of the Neo series is rather different from what we are used to. There are no bright colours, there are no sharp edges, there are no godlike illuminated multi-level velociraptor RGB teeth sticking out of the modules. The smooth lines, the subtle details, the silver paintjob with a little shade of brown - it all looks very grown-up, and we like it.
Essencore's attention to detail doesn't stop with the looks. Unlike most of their competition who make use of thin stamped plates as a method of cooling, the aluminium heatsinks on the Evo are actually thick and heavy. Not only is it good from a standpoint of cooling, but it also solidifies our impression of the Neo as of a quality product.
The heatsinks attach to the modules by a strip of thermal glue on each of their sides. Pre-heated with a hairdryer to weaken the adhesive, they pose no threat of damage to anyone who attempts to remove them. The memory chips used on our sample are manufactured by Hynix, also known as Hyundai Electronics. There are only eight chips on one of module's sides, the second side is left blank. As the modules are 4GB each, this means that each of the memory chips is of 512MB (or 4Gbit) capacity. This information can alternatively be deduced from the markings on the modules, which read H5TQ4G83MFR. Of all the chip options that one can encounter on a 2015-made memory kit, Hynix MFR is, perhaps, the most favourable one due to its good voltage scaling and vast timing flexibility.
Both memory modules carry a small SPD chip, which contains their internal part number, serial number and production date. The SPD also features several JEDEC setting presets that are intended for backwards compatibility with platforms that do not support DDR3-1600 memory out of the box. On top of the JEDEC presets, there is an XMP - a profile intended to reduce the procedure of setting the memory to its rated frequency, timings and voltage to a change of just one option in motherboard's BIOS. The exact settings applied by the XMP profile on our test platform were as follows:
Existe um novo concorrente no mercado das memórias RAM. Começou a dar nas vistas do público internacional durante a Computex onde alguns dos seus produtos venceram prémios de design. Mas é mais interessante do que parece e talvez os fãs de League of Legends e mais concretamente da equipa do Faker, SK Telecom T1, possam criar alguma afinidade com esta marca.A marca chegou ao mercado com o nome KLEVV e pertence à Essencore que por sua vez é uma subsidiária do gigante grupo SK C&C, que detém a SK Telecom e a SK Hynix, entre outras.
Interessa saber que no mercado de ICs DRAM existem três fabricantes principais: Micron, Samsung e SK Hynix. As marcas que habitualmente encontramos nas lojas compram lotes de ICs a estes fabricantes e depois fazem a sua seleção para integrar em determinada linha de produtos.
Claro que a Samsung também vende memórias com o seu próprio nome e a Micron tem a marca Crucial para o mesmo efeito. A KLEVV acaba por ser a resposta da SK Hynix e por isso é expectável que continue a crescer rapidamente absorvendo quota de mercado de outros revendedores como GSKILL, Corsair, etc., especialmente se tiver prioridade na escolha dos lotes para os seus produtos.
Basta pensar que atualmente os kits de memória de topo utilizam ICs Hynix MFR, que são bastante caros mas apresentam grande capacidade de overclocking.
A KLEVV trabalha com produtos DRAM e NAND, tem ofertas em DDR3 e DDR4 e deverá entrar no mercado dos SSDs brevemente.

EMBALAGEM E CONTEÚDO
Embalagem super simples que na frontal apenas tem destaque para a capacidade 8GB (4GB x 2), compatibilidade com Intel e o slogan da KLEVV. Era bom identificar mais facilmente a série e a frequência das memórias.
Na outra fase da embalagem tem uma imagem do dissipador da série Urbane e uma pequena lista de caraterística.
A série Urbane é a oferta de gama média para entusiastas e gamers que a KLEVV apresenta em DDR3. A marca garante que só utiliza ICs escolhidos a dedo e dificilmente será possível encontrar KLEVV com ICs que não sejam Hynix. Neste caso particular é um kit de 8GB e 2133MHz mas dentro desta série existem dos 8 aos 32GB e dos 1600 aos 3200MHz de frequência.
Este produto inclui a certificação XMP e por isso é fácil aplicar as frequências e timings anunciados, através de uma simples opção na BIOS. Por default não está ativado e as memórias estão abaixo das especificações anunciadas.
O dissipador é todo em alumínio e apresenta um design bem elegante. A cor é ligeiramente mais escura do que parece nas fotografias. Não tem chamas nem aspeto de transformers mas deve agradar a quem gosta de um aspeto mais profissional e sóbrio.
De um dos lados aparece o logotipo da marca e a série a que pertence. Do outro as especificações como frequência, tensão e timings bem como o serial number de cada módulo.
Atualmente e devido à densidade que os ICs permitem, muitos kits de memória utilizam chips apenas de um lado. Estas KLEVV Urbane são mais um exemplo disso. Não confundir com single-channel ou dual-channel. Por curiosidade, removendo o dissipador pode ver-se que utilizam os famosos chips Hynix MFR conhecidos pela sua capacidade de overclock e capacidade de escalar com aumento da tensão. Boas notícias!
De origem este é um kit CL10, com timings 10-12-12 com 1.6V. Certamente não é um daqueles kits de baixa voltagem mas também não será preciso relaxar os timings ou aumentar a tensão para obter uma frequência bem superior à de origem. Num outro exercício, será também possível apertar ainda mais os timings, diria que CL7 é bastante realista de se obter.

KLEVV Fit Faker Edition 8GB Memory Review. Today we examine an impressive memory kit, inspired and designed by a LOL legend, FAKER. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you ought to know League Of Legends, is one the biggest games on planet earth. With a following that is growing daily, and prize pools associated with it, more than anyone could have anticipated. LoL and others like it have projected PC gaming (moba) into the forefront and pushed the sincerity/legitimacy of eSports to an all-time high.
The product comes from a fairly recently launched brand, KLEVV. Which is an in-house brand from Essencore Limited. The company aim is to become a mainstream player in the memory market. Read more about the company and their vision HERE
I stumbled across KLEVV back in 2014, via social media and was instantly attracted to their products, the visuals here are as enticing as all other KLEVV modules. Targeting a rapidly growing segment of the market, custom system builders,modders and enthusiasts. The collaboration of this actual product between KLEVV and Faker, was announced earlier in 2015, with the intention to produce a product that was a ‘Perfect fit for the best performance’. The modules are smaller and lighter than earlier model.
The Faker edition is based heavily on the KLEVV FIT range, which offers modules of 8/16GB between 1600/2133Mhz. This limited edition runs at 1600Mhz however.[Features and specifications]DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800), Timing 9-9-9-24, Cas Latency 9, Voltage 1.5VStrict quality and reliability testingLow-key yet highly powerfulFaker edition was inspired and designed by Faker (SangHyeok Lee) the world class LOL player. Within the package you can find the Faker’s signature and gaming performance image.Minimalistic heat spreader with outstanding cooling efficiencyLee “Faker” Sang-hyeok aged 19 is the Mid Laner for SK Telecom T1. considered by many as the best mid laner in the world. Faker is renowned for his high level of gameplay and is considered by many to be the best League of Legends player of all time. He is consistently ranked number one by analysts and often referred to as the “God” of League of Legends.SK Telecom T1 is a Korean a professional gaming team based in South Korea. Previously, the SK Telecom organization sponsored two sister teams, S and K.
It was originally founded as a StarCraft: Brood War team under the name Orion in 2002 by Lim Yo-Hwan (Boxer), regarded by many as the greatest eSports player of all time, and has included such stars as Kim Taek-Young (Bisu),Jung Myung-Hoon (Fantasy) and Choi Yun-Sung (ILoveOov – who is currently the coach of SKT1’sStarCraft II team). ItsLeague and StarCraft teams have made efforts to support each other publicly, as cameras caught Faker and the rest of the League team attending one of the StarCraft team’s Proleague matches against Jin AirWatch Faker talk about EKKO below ( Be sure to enable subs!)[First Look and Impressions]The modules arrived in a card wrap, with a plastic viewing window. The design is ultra clean, with a real emphasis and the product tagline “perfect fit for the best performance. While it’s optimised and certified for Intel, it’s, of course, compatible with AMD too Not a great deal on the other side, an image of Faker himself. A brief product run down, and access to the product in the form of a tear strip/out line.
The modules are stunning to look at, a black PCB is accented with a striking midnight blue heatsink on top. The brushed aluminum finish reacts to light, and at every angle it’s as good as the last. At either side of the heatsink small contours are engraved, alongside the KLEVV logo.
A white centre piece runs along either module, which pops really well against that beautiful blue. Fakers signature appears on either side of the module, the reverse detailing the memory speed, timings and voltage. These stickers can ruin overall aesthetics but Klevv have found a way to make it work. It’s not immediately apparent, especially without something side by side, for comparison. But the models are extremely thin and compact, ideal for compatibility. Despite this Klevv claims cooling is superior
All in all, beautiful modules![Observations and Compatibility]
Modules and coolers can cause a nightmare when assembling your custom build. Generally you need to avoid RAM with oversized heatsinks, if you want to use an aftermarket cpu cooler. You can research and often comprised on one or the other. Theirs no need here with the Faker kit, these are possibly the most compact modules I’ve ver seen.[Test Setup & Methodology][Techicize Test Bench]Processor:Intel Core i5 4670K Socket 1150Cooling: VariesMemory:Kingston HyperX Beast 2400Mhz 8GBMushkin Blackline 1600Kingston Savage 1600Kingston Fury 1866Kingston 10th Anniversary 1866Kingston HyperX Predator 2133Kingston HyperX Beast 2133Kingston HyperX Beast 2400Kingston HyperX Predator 2400Motherboard:MSI Z97 Gaming 7 Socket 1150Video Card:NAPSU:CoolerMaster M2 1500wHard Drives:Kingston HyperX 3kOS:Windows 8 Pro 64-BitWe would like to thank or sponsors for their support with our test system, Kingston,Dismatech,Cooler Master, Noctua and MSI[Overclocking]Overclocking is CPU dependant and this is often dubbed as the silicone lottery.This means you should keep in mind, each user experience will differ.

A system must be pass extreme torture testing from Gaming, Benchmarks and stress tools to be deemed stable. The same CPU is used in all reviews.The kit is able of 1600Mhz with timings 9-9-9-24 and Voltage 1.5V.
We had a feeling the kit may be able to hit 2133Mhz, as it part of the original “Kit” series. which is available between 1600-2133Mhz. Our suspicions were correct, and set the frequency to 2133Mhz/ timings to 10,12,12, 28, and bumped the voltage to 1.6V.[Max Overlock]We pushed for more and settled for 2400Mhz .

It’s key that they stand out, and this Kit does. Stamping Faker’s signature on the product wouldn’t have been good enough, the very fact he was involved in the design process is brilliantThe visuals are like every KLEVV product out there, sleek and refined to perfection. Theirs not much more much to say about them. I feel the, the images show, much more than words can say! Performance out of the box was, as you would expect is average, but the kit can be unleashed with ease up to 2400Mhz, which really nudge the kit forward. Our first experience with KLEVV and they’ve made a very postive impact on us!

Today we are going to look at another DDR3 memory from the new comer Essencore – the Klevv Genuine DDR3 memory. Previously, we reviewed the Klevv Genuine which is their flagship DDR3 memory. If you haven’t seen or read my previous review, be sure to read that as well. Just a little intro regarding the company; Essencore is basically a new company or challenger in the memory and storage industry. They recently launched their brand “KLEVV” together with their DDR3 and DDR4 memory early this year. Now, the Klevv Urbane DDR3 Unbuffered DIMM memory, according to the company, is “Born to be Sophisticated” and is “Fast by Nature”. Well, aesthetically speaking, it does look elegant and sophisticated. The Urbane is not about jagged edge and serrated aluminium fins, like most DDR3 memory we see in the market today. The Klevv Urbane is all about sleek lines and smooth curves, and in my opinion it offers a certain uniqueness that I find very pleasing. The specific unit sample I got is the Klevv Urbane DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) Memory Kit at 2400MHz CL11-13-13-31 @ 1.65V (KM3U4GX2Y-2400) IMT451U6MFR8Y-AB1. Now that’s very specific! Before we proceed with the review, I’d like to thank Essencore for providing the Urbane DDR3 memory kit for the purpose of this review.
KLEVV Urbane DDR3 Memory Review
Just like the Klevv Genuine, the Urbane DDR3 memory kits are also built using strictly screened memory ICs. At least that’s what Essencore said from their advertisement. The Urbane doesn’t have any LED lighting effects, but thankfully its heat spreader is made out of an all-aluminium material. Unlike with the Genuine’s heat spreader design that was a mixture of aluminium and plastics, and that somehow got me a little bit disappointed.
The Klevv Urbane fully supports Intel XMP profile which should be able to help you run it on its rated speed. The Urbane memory kit is available from 8GB capacity up to 32GB capacity, with rated speeds from 1600MHz up to 3200MHz. This memory, like the Genuine, is geared towards gamers, PC enthusiasts and overclockers who want a high performance memory. But it won’t cost you as much like the Genuine DDR3 memory kits.
I’ll discuss more of its features as we take a closer look at the memory below. Here is a screenshot of the SPD information of the sample kit I got using AIDA64:
