Kingston HyperX Genesis 2666mhz Memory Review (Z77)

Rating: 8.5.

With the recent launch of Intel’s Ivy Bridge Z77 platform many established companies have been focusing on releasing quality memory targeting the demanding enthusiast user. Today we are looking at an ultra high performance kit from Kingston which operates at a staggering 2,666 mhz.

In recent months we have reviewed many high performance memory kits from companies such as Mushkin and G.Skill, although today is the first time we have reviewed a 2,666mhz kit. We pair the memory up with a Core i7 3770k processor and an Asus ROG Maximus V Gene Z77 motherboard.

The Kingston HyperX Genesis kit we have for review is a very early release, 4GB total (2x 2GB) featuring timings of 11-13-13-30 @ 2N.
