Apacer Unveils its Ares DDR3-3000 Memory

Apacer has launched its Ares series of overclocking memory that previously made an appearance at this year’s Computex conference where it set a new record for air-cooled overclocking by achieving a clock rate of 3226 MHz.

The Ares series features “strictly tested high-end guaranteed memory chips,” an eight-layer PCB that reduces interference and improves signal quality and overclocking stability, and a “professional cooling system” that utilizes large cooling fins and pure copper for better thermal conduction.

The Apacer Ares series of memory will be initially available in kits of 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) and 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) with stock clock rates of 2800 MHz, 2933 MHz and 3000 MHz.

    I thought Ares was a G.Skill brand...

    Lawsuit time.

    I guess in the next year or two we are going to have small heat-sink-fans built into our RAM..... smh

    Put that on an AMD APU and let's set some records!

    The time you'd really want RAM that fast is when your overclocking, and to overclock you'd want a big cooler that would probably get in the way of those giant heatsinks on the RAM.

    Unless your using a liquid cooler.

    I have two questions,
    1. What happens when the CPU clock is lower than RAM clock?
    2. Are there mobos any available in market who support these RAMs?

    It's going to be a bitch to try to place large CPU heatsinks.

    Why the heat pipes? Others have achieved this clock with much better designs that can accommodate more cooling solutions for the CPU.

    Why must they use that heatsink design? it makes the memory sticks higher than they need to be (with lots of empty wasted space)

    this means those of us with large air coolers cannot use the memory + have a large heatsink for the CPU.

    Useless ocz reaper heatsinks. Check.

    ASUS/g.skill product confusion. Check.

    Crappy under performing, single sided ICs. Check.

    Overpriced? You bet.
