The Kingston memory came with a recyclable plastic box and a manual that explains basic installation and use.
An important factor in buying memory is the warranty. Kingston’s HyperX modules DO carry a lifetime warranty. This means that Kingston products are guaranteed to operate as specified by their datasheet and in the operating environment for which they were intended, for the life of the product.
Kingston’s KHX3500K2/1G is a kit of two 64M x 64-bit (512MB) DDR434 CL2 memory modules. Thus making the total kit capacity to be a large 1GB. The components on each module include sixteen 32M x 8-bit (8M x 8-bit x 4 Bank / 217MHz, 4.6ns) DDR434 SDRAM in TSOP packages. Each 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.6V.
Kingston’s HyperX kits are designed and tested to meet dual channel architecture requirements such as those found on chipsets and motherboards like NVidia’s Nforce2, and Intel’s Canterwood and Springdale. From the Kingston website they state, “HyperX modules are designed for consumers who like to maximize the performance of their systems to allow for the optimization of memory parameters. With HyperX memory modules, gamers and PC enthusiasts can take full advantage of their system’s performance with the increased performance provided by the Kingston HyperX modules.”
Moving on to the benchmarks, let’s see how this ram performs!
