Design and Hardware

The XPG Lancer RGB 32GB RAM is designed to be the ultimate ally for gamers and heavy PC application users. The package includes two 16GB sticks, each adorned with a beautifully crafted heat sink and customizable RGB light effects that add a cool aesthetic to your PC build. Available in black and white, it can seamlessly blend with your PC build theme.

This DDR5 RAM requires a compatible motherboard that supports DDR5 slots. Therefore, it’s crucial to research before purchasing any RAM for your PC build. The advantage of DDR5 RAM is its power efficiency, a significant improvement over its DDR4/DDR3 predecessors. Most DDR5-U-DIMMs feature a power management IC to maximize RAM usage and overclocking (Supports Intel® XMP 3.0 and AMD EXPO for easy overclocking). Moreover, the XPG Lancer RGB DDR5 RAM is future-proof, compatible with all motherboards that support DDR5, ensuring more than a decade of compatible usage.

For this review, I set up my own build, including the ASUS Prime H610M-E Intel H610 (LGA 1700) mATX motherboard with DDR5. The installation process was straightforward, and the design, especially with the RGB lights illuminating during boot, was impressive. I ran it using Linux OS and conducted a benchmark test, which it passed with flying colors. The DDR5 speeds range from 5200 to 8000 MT/s, making it a top-notch RAM for your gaming and everyday application needs.


Choosing the right RAM for your PC build is crucial as it significantly impacts your CPU system’s performance. The XPG Lancer RGB DDR5 has the capacity and power to handle heavy gaming and multitasking multiple applications. Its 32GB capacity is more than enough to run heavy graphic games (with high GPU power). I ran multiple games with it, and it worked seamlessly with the processor.

A SK Hynix A Die Memory Chip with CL30-40-40 RAM Timing

SK Hynix A Die refers to a type of memory chip produced by SK Hynix, a South Korean semiconductor company. These A-Die chips are used in various memory products, including DDR5 RAM modules. They are known for their ability to achieve high memory frequencies. For instance, they have been used to create DDR5 memory with rates up to 8000 MT/s. They are also capable of maintaining tighter timings at certain frequencies, which can enhance the performance of the memory modules. Due to this, the XPG Lancer 32GB RAM is capable of CL30-40-40. In this context, “CL” stands for CAS (Column Address Strobe) latency, which is a critical timing parameter for RAM. The numbers following “CL” represent the timings for different operations. In a XPG Lancer DDR5 RAM with “CL30-40-40” timings:

The CAS latency is 30, which means it takes 30 clock cycles for the RAM to start responding to a read command. The next two numbers (40-40) represent other timing parameters, typically tRCD (Row to Column Delay) and tRP (Row Precharge time), respectively. These timings play a significant role in the performance of the RAM. Lower numbers generally mean faster response times, leading to better overall performance. However, the actual performance can also depend on other factors such as the memory clock speed. For example, a DDR5-6000 RAM with “CL30-40-40” timings might perform differently than a DDR5-4800 RAM with the same timings.

Overclocking the XPG Lancer RAM

Overclocking the XPG LANCER RGB DDR5 RAM is safe and can potentially lead to up to a 20% increase or more in performance of your games and applications. Due to the DDR5 compatibility, it introduces a redesign of the entire data bus, channel architecture, and power delivery systems. These changes can potentially offer more headroom for overclocking resulting in improved Power Delivery and Data Bus Design. Gaming Advantages: The enhancement of RAM through overclocking can lead to an increase in frame rates and a decrease in latency, thereby significantly improving the overall gaming experience.
