Firstly the combination between very shiny X logo, metallic heatsink and smooth nature made for one of the hardest photoshoots we've done. To light it without making one or other element overly bright was a hell of a challenge.

As you can see though the Genesis is a very attractive combination between the Hyper-X logo and gun metal. Naturally with so many issues the beauty of this really doesn't come across in photos.

Memory is quickly dividing into two categories, the insane heatsink that could cool a battleship and, as here, one that actually fits under the modern tower heatsinks. Given our preference for a cool CPU and the popularity of "twin tower" style coolers it's nice to see a company unafraid to be subtle. 

Especially as even highly overclocked RAM never gets hot enough to warrant the plethora of points and fins that adorn some kits.

Awesomely fast, affordable and looks great. Finally some unpainted heatsinks. These along with some of their more traditional blue heatsinks on a MSI board will be awesome xDQuote

the set my mate got are doing 2200mhz @ 9-10-9-26-1t 100% stable and are hit and miss @2000 cas8 but the gains all come from the mhz with them latency didnt gain much in benchmarks.

the one thing (other than the balls out performance) that struck me about them was the look, the etched hyper x on the gun metal grey is such a nich look that they just ooze so much understated class its untrue. i can only imagine how hard it was to get some nice pics of them, they go from a matt grey to shining like a diamond within a couple of degree.

i havent seen ram look as good as this since corsair first released the dominator range.Quote
