Whenever we say Kingston the main thing that flashes in our mind is its name in the memory market.Started in 1987 this company started with one single product and gradually branched into anything and everything that uses memory,be it high performances USB drives or server memory or SSD’s.As for me Kingston hold a special value in my life as my first machine(a humble Celeron D with Asrock board) has 2X512MB of Kingston DDR memory.
Now,keeping nostalgia aside,lets see what we on the test bench today.
Presenting Kingston Hyper X Blu 1600Mhz 8GB kit (P/N:KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX ).
The kit is stated as “Extreme Gaming Memory for Overclocking and Gaming Enthusiasts”,lets see how extreme it is..shall we?
First up a screenshot of the SPD at stock.
As we can see the kit is XMP ready.So with an Intel system setting up wont be a problem.
