Kingston Hyper X 2000MHz Review

Kingston Hyper X  2000MHz

Up Close

The packaging is the standard RAM style consisting of a hard plastic front and back. The part that contains the DIMMs is vacuum formed around them but, unlike some packages we've seen, with enough flexibility that the sticks are easily removed with applying worrying amounts of pressure.

Once the Hyper X is out of the packet we can get a close look. Firstly the heatspreaders are lovely to look at. A really high quality finish in a lovely blue.

Perhaps more obviously is the sheer size. Oh boy these are big. When we took the side on shot to demonstrate how well manufacturered the heatspreader is, the photo reminded us of nothing more than a Spectrum 48K. But perhaps we're showing our age.

The Hyper X Fan

As befits a high end RAM kit Kingston supply us with a cooling fan to help keep this blazing DIMMs in check.

The anodising perfectly matches the DIMMs themselves and by virtue of it having two 60mm fans it hopefully wont give us the deafening whine that we can get with the some coolers.

Building the cooler is simple with just four thumbscrews to attach to keep the sides on. It's a fabulous looking bit of kit and matches the DIMMs perfectly.

Awesome review dude, I love the heatsinks as well. Out of interest (as you might have swayed me with this one) what heatsink are you using in the set up and is it in a 'pull' config as it won't fit against the ram if it's on 'push'? Would be awesome to know if it would fit with my Titan Fenrir in there. Cheers.Quote

The heatsink there is a Xigmatec Thors Hammer, the fenrir should be fine though.

Working? No chance I'm sat in a coffee shop in Regent Street!Quote

Cheers dude, I think I'll almost definitely get me some of this sweetness. Was gonna get some good 1600MHz stuff, but when this has the same latencies with a massive 400MHz boost for only £15 more, I don't think I really have a choice now do I?

Glad to hear OC3D doesn't keep you locked up permanently, means you can enjoy some of this peculiarly nice weather we've been having during the usually monsoon-like April Quote
