Kingston HyperX T1 12GB DDR3 1600mhz Review (X58)

Rating: 9.0.

Sandybridge systems have been well received by both the press and the public, with a compelling price to performance ratio. At the higher end of the market however Intel’s X58 platform still remains the performance king, and today we are looking at a high density memory kit from Kingston which is targeting more than just the performance gamer.

Due to 4GB module densities, the HyperX T1 bundle we are reviewing today will allow a full population of 24GB on mainstream X58 motherboards. Not so long ago this amount of memory would have cost well in excess of £1,000, but Kingston are managing to sell this 12GB kit for £140 inc vat.

That said, the Japan disaster may have an adverse effect on the pricing in the near future, but right now this is a fantastic deal. Kingston haven’t commented on potential pricing increases down the line, but it is an educated assumption on our part.

We will put the 12GB of HyperX T1 through the usual paces today but we also want to see how doubling the memory count can enhance memory intensive programs such as Adobe Photoshop.
