Kingston HyperX 2400mhz Review (8GB KHX2400C11D3K4/8GX)

Rating: 8.0.

Intel’s X79 platform has transformed the high end enthusiast market, with performance levels outside anything that AMD can currently challenge. We have reviewed several memory kits in recent months but today we are looking at the latest HyperX 2400mhz memory 8GB kit from Kingston.

We have already looked at the excellent Corsair GTX8 and G.Skill RipJawsZ memory and were very pleased with the performance from both. We would expect Kingston to put in a good challenge.

    THank god they are killing that huge heatspreader. looks impressive on their website but its stupid.

  • Joseph

    Very nice. wish I could afford the rest of the system.

    Only problem I would have, why 8GB? id clearly go for 16GB with a system like this, seems very miserable for the platform. G.Skill have this round!

    Ordinary sized heatspreaders! finally.

    I like kingston memory, always been reliable for me. this memory hasn’t impressed me. 13 timings are very loose, its not much of an achievement for one of the market leaders.

    Excellent choice for Gamers and builder who wants a stable Windows 7 64-bit PC systems. I played Crysis 2 and the game is very smooth as I am using Radeon HD 6950 2GB and together with this Kingston HyperX 8GB Kit. When not playing games, I do my system laboratory using VMWare Workstation 7 and running 5 virtual machines on top my Windows 7. I run Citrix laboratory using VM’s and my virtual lab is very fast.
