Kingston Launches HyperX DDR3 2GHz Triple-Channel Memory Kits

After OCZ, Corsair and G.Skill, Kingston is now launching new HyperX DDR3 triple-channel kits designed specifically for the new Intel-based X58 motherboards.
"Kingston is excited to bring the fastest DDR3 triple channel memory products to market as we are the first to deliver 2000MHz gaming kits of three with Intel's reduced voltage,” said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "All of our triple-channel kits can be overclocked manually or by using XMP-ready profiles. The 2GHz modules have been tested to support up to that speed on ASUS P6T Deluxe motherboards while the Intel DX58SO motherboards have been tested up to 1600MHz.”
In addition to the top-of-the-line 2000MHz modules, Kingston's family of triple-channel kits include 1866MHz, 1800MHz, and low-latency 1600MHz and 1375MHz speeds. Kingston ValueRAM kits of three are also available in 1333MHz and 1066MHz speeds:
  • KHX16000D3K3/3GX - 3GB (3x1GB) 2000MHz CL9-9-9-27 @ 1.65V, optimized for XMP $334.00
  • KHX14900D3K3/3GX - 3GB (3x1GB) 1866MHz CL9-9-9-27 @ 1.65V, optimized for XMP $317.00
  • KHX14400D3K3/3GX - 3GB (3x1GB) 1800MHz CL9-9-9-27 @ 1.65V, optimized for XMP $312.00
  • KHX12800D3LLK3/3GX - 3GB (3x1GB) 1600MHz CL8-8-8-24 @ 1.65V, optimized for XMP $285.00
  • KHX11000D3LLK3/3GX - 3GB (3x1GB) 1375MHz CL7-7-7-20 @ 1.65V, optimized for XMP $192.00
  • KVR1333D3N9K3/6G - 6GB (3x2GB) 1333MHz CL9-9-9 @ 1.5V, ValueRAM kit $240.00
  • KVR1333D3N9K3/3G - 3GB (3x1GB) 1333MHz CL9-9-9 @ 1.5V, ValueRAM kit $132.00
  • KVR1066D3N7K3/6G - 6GB (3x2GB) 1066MHz CL7-7-7 @ 1.5V, ValueRAM kit $240.00
  • KVR1066D3N7K3/3G - 3GB (3x2GB) 1066MHz CL7-7-7 @ 1.5V, ValueRAM kit $132.00

1.65 - that's more like it. Shame I don't like or trust Kingston RAM.

Why's that? I heard kingston is great.

Does anyone know if timings on ddr3 will ever come down or is this about the best they'll get?

I wouldn't buy triple channel for now because 3gb on only 4 slots hmm nope unless a 2-4gb ddr3 comes out

They'll probably get a little better, but these timings aren't bad at all for those speeds. To put it into perspective, CAS9 @ 2000 is roughly equivalent to DDR2 running at 1100MHz CAS5.

As we speak, I am running 4GB of DDR3 at 1781mhz at 6-6-6-18 2T on 2.1V, mine will do 2100mhz @ 9-9-9-24 on 2.2V or a stock 1600mhz 7-7-6-18 @ 1.9V.

We use Kingston RAM at work and it's nothing sort of terrible. I'd go so far as to say it's the biggest problem we have. Saying that though, we've had a batch of duff G43 and P43 boards in and the Kingston RAM hasn't helped in diagnosing matters.

My friend uses HyperX RAM and he says it's freaking awesome, unless I'm wrong and he was originally going to get HyperX but got OCZ instead. I forget.
