It's been a while since we've looked at a Tri-Channel kit of memory. Let's look at what Kingmax are doing in this area.

Final Thoughts

 

With the kit we're looking at today not even having a serious name, we instantly get the feeling that it goes into that category of mainstream memory. When we say that, we mean that if someone's just looking for a 6GB kit of memory at X speed then this is the kind of kit that would get offered to them.

 

You might find yourself thinking, "Well, that's not very exciting" and you would be right. This kit isn't supposed to get the juices flowing in the sense that you're going to be breaking world records with it. What it does is offer you 6GB of branded good quality memory at a strong price of less than $160.

 

It's cheap memory that's going to work. To be honest with you, that's what most people out there want. Sure, it's great to look at $600+ kits of memory that can offer speeds in excess of 2200MHz, but for most that's more money than they want to spend; it would be the difference between having a HD 5450 and a HD 5870.

 

If you're a gamer or just someone who wants a stable computer and you find yourself wanting 6GB of no frills RAM, this is a great little kit from Kingmax. Throw in the fact that the heatsink is top quality and we had some overclocking head room and you've got a really nice little kit on your hands.
