Today, we begin our collaboration with KLEVV, to whom we extend our thanks for providing this product for our analysis. KLEVV is a subsidiary of Essencore, a Hong Kong-based company with manufacturing facilities in Taiwan that has been making a strong entrance into the market. We are reviewing the KLEVV BOLT V, DDR5 memory modules with an elegant, minimalist aesthetic that are far from the typical “gaming” look and offer top-tier frequencies and latencies.
Technical Specifications of the KLEVV BOLT V
KLEVV BOLT V RGB
Intel XMP 3.0
Packaging and Accessories
The packaging for the KLEVV BOLT V is a plastic blister surrounded by cardboard, showcasing the memory modules’ design through its front window.
On the back, we find some of the main features detailed, along with the complete model name: KD5AGUA80-64A320H.
The packaging opens in a simple and practical way, something other manufacturers could learn from.
Design and Features of the KLEVV BOLT V
Continuing our review of the KLEVV BOLT V, we have in front of us a pack composed of two DDR5 DIMM memory modules that are compatible with modern motherboards.
The design is quite sober and minimalist, with only a subtle logo around the model name on the dark grey heatsink that covers the memory modules. This makes them ideal for any build where LED RGB lighting is not important.
A critical feature of the KLEVV BOLT V is its heatsink height of 34mm, making them compact and perfect for small systems where the cooler may be restrictive in terms of memory height.
Another interesting aspect is that KLEVV BOLT V memory modules come with an XMP 3.0 profile and an AMD EXPO profile, making them compatible with any modern motherboard supporting DDR5 memory. These profiles not only make them compatible with the base frequency of the platform, but they also allow for easy configuration to the specified speed on any modern platform with just a couple of clicks.
To evaluate the performance of the KLEVV BOLT V, we set up the following test system:
Thermaltake Core P3 TG Pro chassis
MSI MEG Z690 Unify motherboard
Intel Core i9-12900K processor
MSI MEG CoreLiquid S360 liquid cooling
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card
be quiet! Dark Power 13 1000W power supply
Windows 11 Pro operating system
Tests of the KLEVV BOLT V
As a first step in our KLEVV BOLT V review tests, we used CPU-Z software to verify the correct XMP 3.0 profile configuration for the memory modules. As we can see in the images, they are configured at 6400MHz with latencies 32-38-38-78 and a voltage of 1.350V.
Next, we analyzed their performance by comparing them to previously tested memory modules.
Conclusions of the KLEVV BOLT V
In conclusion, the KLEVV BOLT V stands out for its full compatibility with the Z690 platform and a 12th generation processor. Some modern modules require even more advanced processors to achieve this, but these are straightforward to configure using their XMP profile. Additionally, we must highlight the aesthetic simplicity of their design, making them ideal for those who shy away from RGB lighting.
They will soon be available in Spain at a price of around 150 euros for the 2x16GB 6400MHz CL32 pack we analyzed here. It’s a competitive price, making them an interesting option to consider, especially before the general price increase for RAM that is expected.
Very elegant and minimalist design, perfect for those who don’t want RGB
High-performance: 6400MHz / CL32
Only 34mm in height, great compatibility with compact systems
Nothing new to offer in the market
