Kingston HyperX DDR3 2133MHz 4GB Kit - Kingston HyperX DDR3 2133MHz 4GB Kit
Tue, October 20 2009 | 12:01PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Unlike Core i7 LGA 1366 the memory vendors were ready and waiting for Core i5/i7 LGA 1156. When Core i7 LGA 1366 came around the memory IC manufacturers couldn't keep up with demand for low voltage memory IC's for Triple Channel DDR3 that met the low voltage requirements. Memory was expensive and hard to come by. When LGA 1156 Core i5/i7 hit the shelves memory vendors were primed and ready for it. Our first kit of LGA 1366 Triple channel ram was a paltry 1066MHz kit that got us up and running so we weren't complaining. Low and behold we did a road trip to California for the Gigabyte, Intel, Kingston Core i5/i7 demo and saw a kit of Kingston HyperX 2133 MHz running in one of the Demo rigs. Well that was love at first Super Pi and we had to have a kit. Kingston was nice enough to hotshot us a 4GB kit of Dual Channel DDR3 2133MHz HyperX in time for the LGA 1156 launch and we have to tell you that this is an exceptional kit. The XMP Profile made it plug and play at 2133MHz and if you had experience with DDR3 on AMD or LGA 775 (Intel) you know how big a pain it was. This was snap in place, set the XMP profile and drive away at a blazing 2133MHz and unheard of 8-8-8-24 timings. Needless to say as soon as we opened the package it was geektastic geekgasms until we got the kit installed. When the machine booted to 2133MHz first time out of the gate we knew we'd chosen the right kit to launch i5/i7 with.
