Kingston HyperX 4GB 2400MHz CL9 DDR3 Memory Review

Kingston HyperX KHX2400C9 Packaging

Since this kit is pre-release I would imagine the packaging was a temporary solution. I say this as the memory modules were just bouncing around inside of the plastic shroud that appears to have been made for a triple channel kit. While they were bouncing around a bit they were limited in their ability to move so all was good aside from a few scratches.

The brushed aluminum heatsinks are anodized in that lovely “Kingston blue” that brings back memories of my DDR1 HyperX kit from years past. The look may have changed but that unique color is still there.

The kit model number is a bunch of nonsensical jibberish unless you know what you are looking at. Kingston has a part number decoder that explains that this is a Kingston HyperX(KHX) 2400MHz(2400) CAS9(C9) DDR3(D3) T1 Heatsink(T1) Fan (F) 2 piece(K2) kit with a 4GB capacity(4G) with an XMP profile(X).

Nothing special here, a set of fans move some air to keep those heatspreaders cool and the sticks underneath them.

An artistic swooping HyperX logo is cut out of the legs for the heatsink.

Just in case you forget which memory kit this cooler belongs to, Kingston has labeled the shroud appropriately.
