Red and Black is definitely the colour scheme of choice for the majority of users, with every manufacturer now offering a motherboard in this particular design, so it makes perfect sense for Kingston to use a red heatspreader on the Savage kit.

The design is fantastic, with some complicated curves and edges. Cast your eye anywhere upon the module and you'll spot a crease, a curve, some fins. It's a gorgeous looking kit, up there with some of the best we've seen.

Sensibly, given the angle in which the majority of us view our RAM, the Kingston HyperX Savage even has the HyperX logo branded on the leading edge of the stick. Although you're unlikely to confuse it with anything else, a bit of brand identity never hurts.

N00b question, will those work with the 990FX chipset (provided that the board supports 2400Mhz DRAM speeds)?Quote

Hmm, it might only seem to support the following chipsets: H67, H97, P67, Z68, Z77, Z87, Z97 and H61 Intel chipsets
as well as A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 AMD chipsetsQuote

Great looking RAM, and as said in the review, the HyperX name means that it's good stuff. (worth the small price premium)Quote

Asus hasn't updated their Memory compatibility lists for those motherboards, neither Kingston has included the chipsets to the tests.. However if it supports E51 chipset, 990fx shouldn't be a problem, idkQuote
