Besides their ValueRAM series, Kingston offers modules for the performance orientated users: HyperX. With a mid-range kit in todays review, we widen the overview of available DDR3-modules another bit. This Kingston kit runs at effective 812.5 MHz clock speed and therefore belongs to the better performing DDR3 kits on the market.

- default clocks & latencies: 7-7-7-20 at 812 MHz (DDR3-1625), 1.9V
This kit is aimed at the connoisseur, clock speeds, latencies and voltage need to be configured manually. The same kit with XMP (x-treme memory profile) feature is available, but you will need an Intel-based motherboard with XMP-support if you are an beginner, and you do not know, what all this is about. These XMP kits are more expensive, of course.
