Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of HyperX 'H2O' water-cooled DDR3 dual- and triple-channel memory kits. With frequencies up to 2133 MHz and capacities up to 6GB, H2O is the newest addition to the HyperX product family and supports the needs of enthusiasts building with water-cooled systems.

"Water cooling is desirable for its quiet operation and long-term reliability. We are bringing HyperX H2O to market as a solution for PC enthusiasts who want to build water-cooled systems using high quality Kingston products," said Mark Tekunoff, senior technology manager, Kingston. "HyperX H2O is a natural extension of Kingston's offerings for performance users. Our goal is for users of all levels and interests to have a Kingston product that meets their needs."



Kingston is debuting three HyperX DDR3 products in the new H2O line: two 4GB dual-channel kits (2000MHz, 2133MHz) and a 6GB triple-channel kit running at 2000MHz. H20 is available through Kingston's channel of authorized distributors, resellers, e-tailers and retailers.

"Kingston is also proud to announce that the original HyperX module is now called Genesis," said Vincent Kim, HyperX product manager, Kingston. "The core of the HyperX family is the blu, Genesis and T1 series as they offer solutions in a range of densities and frequencies for enthusiasts of all levels. For system builders with specific requirements, H2O adds high performance in a water-cooling environment while LoVo is the perfect choice for an energy-efficient build."

Kingston HyperX memory is backed by a lifetime warranty and free 24/7 technical support.

Those are some funky lookin RAM coolers. They look cool as is, but they look like they would be a hell of a hassle to actually run tubing to.

They look like they'd be good on first look, but those nozzles look like 6mm nozzles. No true overclocker with water cooling uses nozzles that small. That means on that part of the loop they'll have to run 6mm tubing and it'll be really restrictive.

Also I can see clamping those things if you've got 6 of them in your computer is going to be a right pain in the backside. I'd rather get the Koolance ones with the Nozzles out the top which are designed to overlap and get normal Kingston HyperX RAM.

http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=860 <- That stuff.

Meh. tiny 3/8 barbs bolted to an odd placement making it difficult for tube routing options (you cant go .. ram > ram with that setup.. either your tube will kink or have an ugly long tube circling around. Best way I see it is .. ram > some component etc > ram.

uggh, its good to see companies trying new ideas but they should really ask someone in the know before asking joe random to design some watercooled heatsinks....

..and then go attach them to green pcb ram sticks :banghead:

It's just a short piece of straight pipe running at the top of the heatsink, utterly and completely pointless :shadedshu

Yeah I noticed that too but didn't think I should mention it because I was probably wrong. I can't see this cooling as well as the Koolance blocks I mentioned. Like I said, just get some normal Kingston HyperX RAM and put a Koolance water jacket on them.

why the hell a DDR3 need water cooling?

its really waste your money because i think DDR3 never generate considerable heat to warrant such cooling

why should we water cool our RAM if Air cooling is enough

i don't remember this blog ever being about "whats enough" OCing on the ram and cooling before it knows what hit it for optimal performance and benching is what the ram is for. Or if your rich and u dont care. Someone is always above u or past your train of thinking on whats "extreme". You bought a 980X when a duo "was enough" Your stats and mentality don't match. Someones always going to use it in way you aren't thinking about. A way thats not recommended or "endorsed" lol on the package but was clearly intended for.

Its not about being rich or not caring. Water cooling ram is not essential IMO. Dont get me worng, the HyperX H20 Ram is cool but even for overclocking purposes, air cooling is more than enough. Specially DDR3 which generates lesser heat than DDR2.

you didn't read a word i said its not about how YOU would use it your not benching anything. and its not about whats essential. no one said its ABOUT being rich or not caring. please read b4 and after trolling

But what you said b4 just doesn't make sense.Just because the guy has a 980X does this mean he must have a super-fast water-cooled memory?Cuz that's just what I understood from your first post. :confused:

Anyway,OT:I've seen some better looking heatsinks.But the price seen ok.

I dunno about lesser heat. My Elpida Hypers run fairly hot(they really NEED the fan, without it radiant heat form them heats up chipset about 10c), and it's been shown that PSC(which this is, by timings) can be heat-sensitive.

I think it looks cool. Odd on the straight pipe though. I think you may be able to use like some 90Angle metal brackets or something without tubing, not sure. Kind of like what you see when Xfire or tri sli is water cooled. Loving those koolance ram coolers as well.

I think water cooling will help eliminate some hotspots in the board, even if you have sufficient airflow in the system and fans. It will allow cooler air to flow across. I do get that lower voltage and lower heat is for DDR3, but doesn't hurt to have watercooling on the ram.

Oh i did read every word. It was just one little part of the post that you were talking about the point you were trying to prove. The rest seemed like trolling to me. :shadedshu

^^^^ Well that's what he seemed to be implying with his attitude. :mad:

I would go with the ocz flexx ram before these imo they should have rethought the nozzles, maybe they are just prototypes

Cute, but, I agree with overclocking101 on the OCZ Flex. These seems not to be really thought out by Kingston in the placement of the nozzles. Wonder if they will provide some pre-formed U-shaped tubing.

Also, they have this pasted on their web pages for the HyperX H20:
* Overclocking is not recommended.
And, on the page "Which memory is right for you?"; it is the only one that has the little notation.

Edit : Click on the data sheet link, at this page, for the info in pdf format.

You could, I guess disassemble it and make your own bends; or, replace it with something to your liking.
