Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3 16GB 1866MHz Kit Review

 

Introduction

It seems that we are seeing more and more products coming from Kingston Technology, since the end of CES. Probably the most impressive product was the new 512GB and 1TB HyperX flash drive. Just imagine walking around with that much storage capacity in your pocket. There are many new products we see coming from Kingston, but one that we love the most are love their memory. We have seen two new models from Kingston just recently and we just got our hands on one of them.

The first model would be the new HyperX Beast, which we will be checking out today, and other is the HyperX 10TH anniversary edition. The HyperX Beast seems to be the new top dog from Kingston as it is sporting a new heat sink design. The Beast stays even cooler with it stepping up the ante with a super high frequency of 2400MHZ.

Kingston‘s take on HyperX Beast

Unleash the Beast on your system. The vicious HyperX® Beast features a dynamic new heat spreader to maximize thermal dissipation for increased reliability. Plus it looks really cool and enhances any system. Its Intel XMP ready so higher-performing frequencies, timings and voltages are just a few clicks away. The Beast gets along well with third-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and the latest AMD performance and gaming processors. Put the Beast in your corner and crush your opponents — or just conquer your challenging workload.

Kingston's KHX18C10AT3K2/16X is a kit of two 1G x 64-bit (8GB) DDR3-1866 CL10 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) 2Rx8 memory modules, based on sixteen 512M x 8-bit DDR3 FBGA components per module. Each module kit supports Intel®XMP (Extreme Memory Profiles). Total kit capacity is 16GB. Each module kit has been tested to run at DDR3-1866 at a low latency timing of 10-11-10 at 1.5V. The SPDs are programmed to JEDEC standard latency DDR3-1600 timing of 11-11-11 at1.5V. Each 240-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +1.5V. The JEDEC standard electrical and mechanical specifications are as follows:
