    Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, continues to celebrate its 10th HyperX anniversary by announcing all-new black printed circuit boards (PCB) on two of its product lines. Kingston's high-performance HyperX Beast and entry-level enthusiast 'black' lines will incorporate black PCB under the signature heatspreader designs.

    HyperX Beast, a part of the Predator family, matches large capacity with ultra-fast frequencies. Now featuring black PCB, HyperX Beast is available in various dual- and quad-channel kits in capacities from 8GB to 64GB and speeds up to an ultra-fast 2400MHz. It is perfect for hardcore gamers, PC modders, content creators and overclockers. The 2133 MHz, 64GB and 2400 MHz, 32GB Beast memory are the fastest and highest capacity certified Intel XMP-ready kits on the market.

    HyperX black is available as single 4GB and 8GB module or as an 8GB or 16GB dual-channel kit in 1333- or 1600MHz frequencies. HyperX black is ideal as a cost-efficient performance upgrade for an overall faster system or for increased in-game frames-per-second rate.

    "Our customers and fans have asked us to come out with HyperX memory featuring black PCBs to better match their system designs," said Larry Yang, HyperX business manager, Kingston. "We are able to match good looks with high performance. The black on black combination allows for easy pairing with any color component on the market."

    Latency are to high most need to drop by CL1-2 then they will be performance RAM.

    You couldn't be further from the truth. More soon, working on the review, although I got green PCBs.

    Don't get me wrong I'm sure they are good and OC well, but I wish they would have speed around DDR3 2400 Timing 10-12-12-31 and the DDR3 2133 should start with CL10 or CL9.

    Yes I am a very picky person. You can find plenty of ram at those speeds with a lower CL. Trident X for example

    Primary timings are not the only thing that affect bandwidth. Please read this review:

    http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Kingston/HyperX_10th_2400C11/

    In many instances this 2400 MHz C11 kit is beating out 2666 MHz C10 kit, and a 2666 MHz C11 kit.

    266 MHz slower...and worse timings....and faster. I said that simply because I have these kits here for review, I thought what you did, but since playing with them, the results say otherwise. I really like my 2666 TridentX kit, but it's I nit's box, and this 2400 MHZ C11 Kingston kit is now my daily driver.

    It's just a matter of knowing how to set up memory right, and I have yet to see a single guide published that shows how. I dunno I'm interested in publishing anything either, the pay isn't worth it. It's more entertaining having discussions like this.



    BRING ON THE BLACK PCB, KINGSTON, THANK GOD!!!

    The hyper x black could stand to drop the BLACK printed on them it looks out of place and states the obvious

    i wish they sold these when i bought there blue colored sticks. i have there ram cooler with green led's put in the fans instead of blue ones so it covers the color of the sticks completely

    I did not get "black" sticks, I got others. That one review I linked above is already posted, of course.

    Not bad at all!

    I do have a set of the Beast sticks and of the Predator sticks, and these new Beast sticks keep the same specs, so are most likely the exact same thing, just new black PCB, due to customers asking for it.

    Win/win, I think.

    But yeah, I was referring to the sticks in the review with my comment , I see what happened there.
