Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB DDR3 RAM Review

Posted on Saturday, June 04 2011 @ 12:34:19 CEST by


Do you still remember the days when Intel's Pentium 4 was duking it out with AMD's Athlon 64, almost every enthusiast owned an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro, having 1GB of RAM was the gold standard, and 160GB hard drives were considered high end? As vivid as it could be in my mind, I still recall configuring my dream computer at my favorite online retailer -- clicking and adding things to the shopping cart, changing and subtracting components repeatedly -- on items I could only, well, dream of owning at the time. Those were also the days when there were only two brands of RAM you should consider if you wanted the best of the best: Kingston HyperX, and Corsair XMS. It wasn't until after that manufacturers like OCZ, G.SKILL, and Patriot took the enthusiast market by storm, and suddenly performance memory became everyone's object of desire. Fast forward to 2011, after owning dozens of kits from pretty much every major manufacturer you could name, somehow by chance no Kingston RAM has ever made it into any of my computers. But regardless of which, the HyperX brand has always held a special place in my heart as a signature of elite performance and quality. Is the original pioneer (Or at least, one of the first) of high performance enthusiast RAM really still the brand to buy? We plugged a Kingston HyperX Grey Series KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB dual channel kit into our labs, gave it a close look, and ran it through our standard series of tests to compose our review today. Read on to find out what we have found!
