Kingston has been in the game of making memory modules and flash products for a long time. They have become so successful at the game that they are the biggest memory maker in the world and have held that position for quite a while now.
For a long time Kingston focused on simple and affordable RAM, but some time ago now they decided to start catering for the enthusiast DIY computer users with their rather well known HyperX brand of memory.
The HyperX line-up of memory hasn't always been the first choice by enthusiasts; not to say that the memory is poor in anyway, it's just that the likes of Corsair, OCZ and G.Skill usually push their memory modules faster and work on a lower quantity at the high-end by vigorously hand picking each memory chip that is put onto a memory module. These memory makers strive for the absolute bleeding edge of memory technology, while Kingston's HyperX brand sticks to a more moderate level, but they are relatively still fairly high at the top end.
Kingston is no slouch here today, though; no, not at all. In our hands we have a Kingston HyperX DDR3-2000 triple-channel 6GB memory kit with a cache latency rating of 8-8-8-24 at 1.65 volts and it also comes with Intel XMP support to allow for easier overclocking on Intel X58 Express based motherboards that are teamed up with a Core i7 processor.
Stick with us over the next few pages as we take a close look at this memory, see exactly what it can do and then give you our final thoughts on the product.
