Unfortunately the kit we received from Kingston was simply in anti-static bags and there were no boxes or packaging material, so we can't give you any info on how it's packed or if the package will rip your hands to bits opening it (like so many other kits have done to me over the years).
Normally we are used to seeing DDR3 modules with heatspreaders to help with dissipating heat to the air, but the kit we're looking at today is bare; no heatsinks, spreaders or cooling aids of any type. This means either these modules are super cool running or they aren't intended for overclocking. Hopefully it's the former and not the latter.
All memory manufacturers place a small sticker (some do larger ones) with the information on the memory modules, including their rated speed in MHz, CAS latency and voltage. Kingston, however, place theirs in the form of a huge jumble of numbers that requires a super computer to decode, or you can go onto their website and sift through all the modules until you come across the same model number that you have.
After deciphering the information, the kit we have received is a 6GB triple channel kit with a rated speed of 1333MHz using 1.5v standard DDR3 voltage and a timing rating of 9-9-9-26 2T.
