    Just wondering if anyone uses this stuff? I picked some up to give games like Crysis a healthy FPS bump mainly, but also in hopes of getting the sticks to hit 1200MHz around 2.2v. I assume these sticks use what are hopefully more robust ICs than other PC8500 kits as they can take slightly higher voltages, but does anyone know what ICs these Kingston HyperX kits tend to use?

    I run with these - and yes they can run 1200 MHz (mine at 2.3 v)
    Just pop of the heatspreder, and you will see the IC´s....
    if you can wait to I get home from work, I´ll tell you what IC´s they use

    Maybe not the very best for OC - but they are certainly stable

    Thats basically why I picked the HyperX, I want stability with headroom for 1200MHz. I'm hoping as this kit are in the QVL list of the M2F, as my P5Q Pro uses a mBIOS with that memory table I hope it'll earn me a few extra "brownie points" in my P5Q Pros book.

    Lets hope so :D HyperX are much less known than the "big names", but I have much faith in Kingston. They spank Crucial 4 ways from sunday and 7 ways on a sunday :p Once they turn up i'll run them in for a bit @ 2.1v 1066 and will report on OCs once I start.

    Are the model number on those D2GNR or D2GN?

    I had some and they could do
    4-5-5-16 @1066 2.2V or
    5-5-5-16 @1100 2.2V,
    and where benchable at 1140 5-5-5-16.
    I had The D2GNR sticks, Good stuff IMO.

    o_O, own brand kingston ICs, or rebadged at the least. Given my good results with own brand ICs before I'm quite excited now :D I have a kit of Geil Black Dragon PC6400 I tested in my TPower I45 to PC8000 speeds @ 2.27v. Their basically rebadged PC8500 I think as 2.27v falls smack in the middle of the voltage spec for the PC8500 BD kit :cool:

    I have a 2gb kit... did ran them around 1115MHz 5-6-6-15, but now they are @ their rated values 1066Mhz 5-5-5-15. I haven't really pushed these sticks. D2GN

    Those are the D9's I thought I was getting. You can get those to 1200mhz Meizuman.

    BTW do you have the F3H bios by any chance? I cant find it anywhere.

    Try 2.3 Vdimm 5-5-5-16 tRFC40, also might want to raise the NB voltage a notch or two.

    Hook me up with the bios dude, Thanks

    Ihave the HYPEX 6400s and they are rock solid at 960@2.3volt .Given that they use ELPIDA ICs thats a good OC!But any HYPERX has GREAT STABILITY.Thats for sure.Just cool them properly on 2.2volts and up cos they get TOOO HOT!

    HyperX arrived :D Damn 4GB sexes me up :p running 2.1v atm no problems and the kit I got has 2.3v on them.. so I'm not sure what ICs it may have but its a higher rating than advertised, so should be a good thing :cool:

    Theres a model number sticker on them, post up what it says and I can probably find out.
    it reads something like ****8500GN or W.E.

    Number is KHX8500D2K2/4G. Not sure how useful that is, broken down it just means they are PC8500 sticks and come in 2 or 4GB flavours.

    I am not sure if the d9's are running much cooler, but at least my sticks wont get hot even with 2.3v... they are just warm to touch.
