The Package


Kingston HyperX XMP-1800 2GB DDR3 Memory Kit


Kingston's choice of packaging is a solid black plastic back with a front clear plastic that has a special packing tape around it. This tape also has on the front the product code. Unfortunately, you do need a degree in rocket science to decode it. Since you can look directly at the modules, there is no need to have any pictures on the back of the case.

Removing the modules form the package, we get to have a look at them in the flesh. Kingston's HyperX heatspreaders remain unchanged. Kingston tries to keep a winning idea alive. The heatspreaders are held to the modules with double sided heat tape and metal tangs.

On one side of each module, Kingston puts the same data that is on the front of the package on the modules. Again, a degree in rocket science is needed to get by. To help you out, the modules are rated for 1800MHz with 8-8-8-24 timings at 1.9v.
