    Kingston Technology Company announced today that it is starting to ship select DDR2 and DDR3 HyperX memory modules with its new T1 heatspreaders. The taller heatspreaders utilize HyperX Thermal Xchange (HTX) technology to further diffuse heat buildup when overclocking. HTX technology is the latest innovation from Kingston's engineers. It includes bigger heatspreaders made of heavy-duty extruded aluminum and extended fins for maximum thermal conductivity. The new series includes both dual and triple channel kits. All Kingston HyperX products are backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support, the HyperX T1 series makes no exception.

    Kingston is always so overpriced. I could never understand why.

    'quality' and its' price, regardless of actual performance..
    like how I was looking at laptop DDR2 and the 'best' dimms are kingston but only because they're CL4 vs CL5...except they otherwise perform the same, and don't reflect £30 extra in price/perf :(

    When will Kingston learn that they're not going to cater to enthusiasts at those prices, and especially with that green PCB. Blech. Why even bother making the heatspreader a nice blue if you're using generic PCB...

    They used to be topnotch stuff with quality, compatibility and all that. Im not sure what happened but they let it get to their head. I do love the blue heatspreaders though. However, Id grab two 2gb kits for 4gb instead of paying 177.00 for a 4gb kit of oced ddr2 800 memory.

    55$ for 2GB DDR3, 435$ for 3GB DDR3... sweet :) Yes, it's faster, but I doubt it's so much more expensive to manufacture, maybe quite the opposite. I wouldn't call that money well spent. At least it's nice they stick to some decent voltage levels. The majority of modules at that speeds that I've seen so far were all near or beyond the 2V mark.

    Havent used Kingston in a long while, but I do like the new blue headspreader. I never liked the old generic HS they had always before. Looked so cheap, but the good thing with those were you could swap them for some good HS from thermalright if you wanted. Now you cant with the new ones. Which is a shame. But maybe you dont have to?
