We wonder if the Greek god can help Kingmax stand out again in the competitive market that is RAM these days.

Final Thoughts

 

Just because we haven't heard much from Kingmax recently, it doesn't mean they've been sleeping on the job. Having a look today at this Hercules kit, it's clear that the company has been hard at work bringing the next generation of high performance memory to the market.

 

Kingmax have put together a really nice kit of RAM here that not only performs great, but also feels of really high quality when it comes to the heatsink. While the Hercules name is a bit dorky and the package is overkill in the sense that it doesn't need to be as big as it is, there's still no denying that the modules can perform. And honestly, when it comes to buying memory this is the most important factor.

 

Overclocking potential was surprising to say the least; we don't tend to see heaps of room when it comes to 2200MHz DDR modules for the simple reason that most companies have them already maxed out when it comes to speed. The relaxed timings, however, gave us the impression that we might have a bit more head room and we were right. Over 2300MHz DDR is indeed impressive and you can see when looking at the numbers the performance gain is nice.

 

With strong performance, a competitive price and a really nice quality module, the Kingmax Hercules kit is impressive. If you're looking for something that is fast and not going to break the bank, the Hercules 4GB kit is one worth checking out.
