The HyperX name has been around for a while now and we've seen many modules fall into the series. Today, however, we're seeing the biggest change to the series we've seen in a while.

Today we're looking at the new HyperX blu Series. Its aim is HyperX quality at a value price. To some, HyperX means speed; to others, it means great quality modules and heatsink along with the ability to overclock. So, what we're wondering is, how does the HyperX blu series sit in the line-up?

The Package



Having a look at the package, there's not too much going on here. We can see a bit of the module from the outside. On the back we have a bit of a rundown along with the model number and some of the main specifications.

The Modules



Having a look at the modules, we're not seeing anything we haven't really seen before with the particular heatsink been seen multiple times in the past. Having said that, there's a few little aesthetic adjustments. We've got the DDR3 logo across the bottom and the new blu logo across the middle.

On one side we've got the aforementioned logo, while on the other we have the Kingston one and a little sticker that gives us all that boring information like the model number and some of the specifications.
