These kits are designed for the technically challeneged who don't know that 1600 MHz DDR3 is not a system bottleneck on a typical CPU powered desktop PC.

They also look to be about 2" too tall.

I guess if you're the kind of guy that doesn't do anything except play Hello Kitty Island Adventure, then yeah these are pointless for you, as a technically challenged person.

I remember in 2012 or so, Kingston sent out review samples of a 2800 kit that never made it to retail, it was only 2x2GB single-sided Hynix CFR. This new version could be either double-sided CFR or single-sided MFR as either will meet the spec, but most likely MFR.

Both the 2800MHz and 2666MHz kit will run the 2666MHz profile with the F5e BIOS:

2800MHz


2666MHz


Not sure why it's reading as D3/J4 not T2K2

Too bad they're not priced at $65/8GB kit like The Beast 2400! (10 months ago). Instead, they go for $269.99/8GB kit! When will this madness stop? At these prices, even Jorge is starting to make a little sense!

Who is Jorge??
Jorge is TPU's resident troll, always ready to make the rest of us smile with his vast storehouse of PC knowledge and paranoid distrust of anything water cooled, overclocked, or expensive. If it's faster or better than his rig, it's ridiculous overkill and a complete waste of money (he hasn't filled in his system specs, so we can assume his machine is fairly low-end or ancient). Take a look at his posts if you want a good laugh...
