Kingston Intros New DDR3 1600 12GB Memory Kit

Kingston is out with its newest 12 GB triple-channel DDR3 memory kit. Unlike the last time, when the company came out with a three-module kit consisting of 4 GB modules, with the KHX1600C9D3K6/12GX, the new 12 GB kit consists of six modules. What is also noteworthy, is that the new kit costs a fraction: Around 350 Euro versus over 1000 Euro.

The six 2 GB modules are cooled by the classic Kingston HyperX heatspreaders. They are rated to operate at 1600 MHz (PC3-12800) with DRAM timings of 9-9-9-27, with module voltage of 1.65V, along with Intel XMP support, making them just about ideal for socket LGA-1366 desktops and importantly, 2-socket workstations.

Yeah, but those may be different slightly. These would be guaranteed to work together. Still cost too much.

I don't understand this... HyperX is only a division of Kingston, it's not a brand of memory IC.

Implying it is dumb to buy a product from a company you can get a better product from at a lower price to boot.
