Testing

For testing GALAX HOF DDR4 kit we used two different DDR4 platforms. First is the well known Intel Skylake platform with Intel i7-6700K CPU and second we used AMD latest platform RYZEN with AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU.

AMD Ryzen being a complete new platform so straight support of all the high end memories will still take some time, but as the BIOS is getting more and more mature, we will get more and more support for high speed memory kits. For our testing we manually overclocked this kit and managed to get a stable memory speed of approx 3200MHz max.

Conclusion

The GALAX HOF 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 3600MHz kit is no dough the best DDR4 kit I have ever tested. Great performance with great scaling and definitely this kit have a great potential inside for overclocking. And the best part is that it comes with a super nice price tag of approx Rs.11K only, great deal.

But only problem I found with this kit is that it comes with only 3 years of local warranty, where as mostly all other brands are offering a Limited Lifetime warranty.

At the conclusion the GALAX HOF DDR4 3600MHz kit offers sexy white looks and gives the best what it is manufactured for. So if you are looking for a good overclockable DDR4 memory kit at a nice price, the GALAX HOF DDR4 3600 is the kit we suggest for.
