Overview of the 16GB 2133MHz Genesis Memory Kit
The packaging that this memory kit came in I will have to say is top notch. Kingston Technology made sure that the memory kit was protected enough for the rigors of packaging, and from shipping; while also providing an easy to open packaging.
Opening up the packaging Kingston Technology, uses a tray like system the holds the memory in an up-right position, and keeping them separated from another. What we get included with the memory kit is four times four GBs of 2133MHz memory with an instruction manual.
The memory is pretty easy to remove from the packaging just simply grab a stick and gently lift outside of the carrier. The one thing I noticed that is not on this set of memory is the physical timings imprinted onto the side sticker that we have seen on so many other memory kits; which, I thought was rather odd because now the only true way of finding out the timings is to install them and then fire up a CPU-Z based program and find out.
The 2133MHz Genesis memory outside of the confines of the packaging, Kingston Technology uses a more traditional low profile style of heat-spreader on the memory itself. The low profile heat-spreader should ensure that we can use large CPU coolers alongside of this memory.
Just a quick look at the side of the memory, this just reaffirms that Kingston Technology uses a more traditional style of heat-spreader on this memory kit.
