Kingston HyperX PC3-12800 (1600MHz) 24GB Kit

Kingston throws the HyperX name onto a massive 24GB kit of memory. Does it deserve it, though?

Kingston sent the PC3-12800 24GB kit over a few months ago and since then I've tried to organize some things to really take advantage of the large amounts of memory. Having the ability to get suitable programs and what not hasn't been easy, though. Instead I've been using the kit for the last few weeks just to see what I think about it and I've also ran the kit through our normal memory benchmark suite.

 

It's interesting to see Kingston place the HyperX name on a 24GB memory kit. Considering it's only a PC3-12800 kit, we're not too sure that it should carry the HyperX tag. What has us worried is that Kingston is just slapping the series name on it because it's such a large kit.

 

We've got our fingers crossed there's more to it than that. It will be interesting to see how our ASRock board handles 24GB of memory and if we're able to overclock the kit.
