Kingston HyperX 8GB KIT 1600mhz (KHX1600C9D3K2/8GX)

Review Score:
2 Flares 2 Flares ×

For many years people have been tied to a 32bit Operating system with a 4GB (nearer 3.5 in real world terms) memory limitation. In 2010, the adoption of 64 bit Windows is finally getting off the ground, which is long overdue. Windows 7 64bit is a fantastic OS and the KitGuru’s recommend to make the move as soon as possible, if you haven’t already.

So, if you have just upgraded to a 64bit OS and want to take advantage of a higher memory configuration for enhanced multitasking performance then todays review product will surely appeal to you. Kingston have recently released a new 8GB HyperX memory kit which comprises two 4GB modules. This is a perfect dual channel partner for either Intel 1156 systems or the latest AMD platforms. Buying this particular kit means that if you need even more memory down the line then you are only using two slots in your system and you don’t need to start from scratch.

    Interesting results, I would have though latencies would need reduced due to board population. Kingston clearly got their heads screwed on !

    I love those heat spreaders and its nice to see good performing memory without the oversized spreaders. More enthusiasts want the big cooler like noctua NHd14 and its not a possible combo

    They are expensive, but not a rip off. if people wanted 16gb in their system, this is the way to go, I wonder though if performance would lower with 4 of them in a system, lower latencies etc/

    I always liked Kingston heatspreaders, they look very futuristic and purty.
    2000mhz is quite an achievement really from these. you know how to OC Z, thats for sure !

    The lifetime warranty is a good bonus. wonder if they could tell if you overvolted them and they died :)

    I can honestly say ive never owned a kingston product, but I liked the look of that SSD you reviewed last week. they seem to be producing some quality goods lately.

    Dont mean to sound like im picking holes, but the price seems a little over the odds, 2gb modules are cheap. 4gb are way overpriced.

    Kingston are good, I had one of their SSds in the past and although they failed to get firmware updates out, it performed well.

    A very high quality product, if rather expensive, one for a designer or a designer/gamer who didnt want to compromise. sadly i yet to see any need for 8gb for gaming.

    rather sexual performance there. almost got carried away with the end result.

    When I find these, ill order them, but it might be a while, looking at stock levels.

    Is it justifiable to be spending almost 1000 buck on memory?

    found this review via google, very good indeed. 2000mhz is good for such large modules. I would be interested, but it seems no where has them in stock anyway
