I received a kit containing 7 different variations of their Blitz 1.1 memory at 1600mhz
System specs I used was:
i7 2600k stock settings 3.4ghz (3.8ghz Turbo Boost)
Asus Maximus IV Extreme P67 B3rev
AIO 240mm CPU Water Cooler
Asus GTX 660TI DCII 2GB
Coolermaster HAF X Case
Corsair HX 850 PSU
Kingston 120GB SSD
The memory specs were the following:
DDR3 1600 CL9 4GB sample for review
Which I assume is the following below
AVEXIR AVD3U16000904G-2BZ1 Blitz Series 8GB Kit (4GB x 2) dual channel 240-pin DDR3 1600MHz 9-9-9-24 DIMM desktop memory module.
Of course I’m missing one stick to make 2 complete sets so I can be wrong.
I got one from each set which is the Original, MPOWER, OC Formula, L337 Red, L337 Gold, Ultra Durable Green, and Ultra Durable Orange.

Taking a peek at the packaging It was made of some sort of Cardboard it seemed, but was durable.
Before taking some photo’s I took some Antibacterial wipes to it about 8 times and it withstood them, As the packaging was pretty much a fingerprint magnet from the coating
Showing the front and back (Top and bottom),The backside shows both features of Gamers and Overclockers, which is nice as they thought of Both.
Going from Left to Right, L337 RED(Red), L337 Gold(gold), OC Formula(gold/yellow), Avexir Original(White)
The color choices were amazingly well balanced for the LED’s used and found them to be a match Perfectly towards their respected motherboards.
Of course I did not have the motherboards so I looked at examples used in events they showcased them for reference.A feature some may not recognize right away regardless is the 2 screws to remove the heatspreader.
Why you ask? Simple… The screws allow the users “Usually Overclockers” to EASILY REMOVE the Heatspreaders and put their own Setup on it for something like…LN2? Or even a Modder to make their own logo and design if they are
creative enough and use the LED Light Bar spreader .I took a shot at removing one of the heatspreaders, and it came off no problem.
Remove the two screws, Hold the sides firmly while pulling on the LED Bar, and that’s all it takes.A note I want to make is that I had to remove the Memory directly pulling on the PCB instead of how I usually do it by the Heatspreader, because the Heatspreaders would come off completely almost, and I had to slide them back on.so I arn everyone in case something does not change…
Avexir did inform me they use a not so sticky thermal pad so everyone can have ease of mind, but personally I did not like this as it felt just too easy to remove and some may be scared to this happening such as possibilities of Voiding warranty ect.
Going from the pictures you can see below the timings were not that bad, and I ran all at 1.5v, Of course.
So in general, I feel these are a great start for people looking to learn while also having multipurpose use, and of course the eye candy in the system.
Overall, I enjoyed the time I spent with this kit because it showed a Variety, and had great features for a lot of different buyers.
It overclocked well enough to where even I who can’t overclock if my life depended on it could get a pretty solid OC.
Performance wise, it was above average from what I seen on the market. Not looking too hard into it but still seeing in my eyes they were outperforming competitors in some areas with similar speeds and timings.There’s really not much to say besides this is Great performing memory, that has more than one use and looks great doing them.
For my rating I have to give it a 4.5/5
The memory also comes with a Lifetime warranty which stands behind their product. Of course warranties don’t usually cover damage you cause so be sure to read the terms!
With their designs to match motherboards of the buyers, it appeals very well to companies and consumers who use the memory.One major thing I would probably wish they would look into is possibly getting better screws or screw setup for the memory heatspreader, as they felt like they stay loose and can easily be lost and just as bad stripped easily. Also a possibility as to why the heatspreader would slide off incase they loosened over time.
Avexir offers special customization’s like their core series regarding Dynamic and Static LED’s, Part Model with your Name or a different customization like your business for example.
•LED’s for lighting (not too bright)
•Each memory type matches it’s motherboard
•Easily Removable Heatspreader
•Static and Dynamic lighting options (LED Stays on/LED Blinks)
•Customization (through Avexir website)
•Non-sticky thermal pads
•Pricing can get costly (depending on customization as well from avexir website)
•screws seemed cheap (for removing the heatspreader)
