Kingston HyperX X2 Grey Series 4GB 1600MHz Memory Kit Review
Andy Ruffell / 9 years ago
A Closer LookAs with all Kingston memory, they come in the typical plastic tray that enables you to see the modules. There is also an included security seal with the relevant details of the memory modules upon it.
The security seal wraps across the front of the packaging and gives information on the model number, voltage and CAS latency. The full model number of this kit as printed on the label is KHX1600C9D3X2K2/4GX.
As we have come to expect with memory modules in this day and age, the majority of manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty. Kingston have supplied a guide that talks through simple installation and gives information of the lifetime warranty that Kingston offer to their customers.
The modules are part of the HyperX Genesis range and therefore come with the newer grey heatspreaders which makes them easily identifiable from the older blue heatspreaders used on the standard HyperX range.
The HyperX and Kingston logo are present on both sides of the modules with one side including an authentic Kingston hologram and sticker label confirming the specifications of the modules.
The label gives us information on the model number, kit size, speed and voltage. The voltage rating for this memory is 1.65V and operates at 1600MHz.
After the memory was installed, we were able to choose the appropriate XMP profile and boot into Windows with no issues.
