GeIL and ASRock have together created the new Orion Phantom Gaming Edition memory kits for both Intel and AMD platforms. Sporting ASRock's Phantom Gaming moniker, the memory kits are guaranteed to work seamlessly on the vendor's motherboards.

The Orion Phantom Gaming memory features the same low-profile design as the regular Orion memory modules but with a slight revamp. On this new iteration, the meteor shower-inspired design is present on a titanium grey background to blend in with ASRock's Phantom Gaming motherboards, such as the B550 PG Velocita, Z490 PG Velocita or Z490 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3.

GeIL sells the Orion Phantom Gaming in both standard and AMD editions. The capacities and frequencies are identical on both product lines. The only apparent difference with the AMD Edition memory kits seems to be the Ryzen sticker that's present on the heat spreader.

Individually, the memory modules are available in capacities of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB.  In regards to the dual-DIMM kits, the available densities include 8GB, 16GB and 32GB with the 64GB variants coming at a later date.

The faster memory kits, such as the DDR4-3600, DDR4-3200 and DDR4-3000 offerings command a 1.35V DRAM voltage, while the DDR4-2666 and DDR4-2400 kits only require 1.2V. The CAS Latency varies between 12 and 19, depending on the frequency.

GeIL's Orion Phantom Gaming Edition memory modules are compatible with Intel XMP 2.0. The manufacturer provides a limited lifetime warranty for the memory kits.

    It looks nice but it doesn't appear to be all that special, judging by the spec numbers. When I think of specialised, enthusiast-grade gaming RAM, I think of low CAS latency with BIG heat spreaders for overclocking. It makes me think of things like the old OCZ Reaper and Reaper-X DIMMs.

    Yeah, they're crazy-looking but imagine the overclocking you could do with THOSE heat sinks! :ROFLMAO:

    Besides, who really likes or considers ASRock as a contender in todays motherboard race? Their back in the second or third tier at best. The ASRock systems I've built have had to many RMA's for random issues.
