  1. Kingston has introduced a new HyperX memory kit for Intel's LGA1366 Core i7 platform. The kit consists of six 2GB modules that run at 1600MHz and 1.65 with a timing of 9-9-9-27. The modules support Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP), which should make things easy on you when it comes time to tweak some settings. Having been designed for use with Intel's Core i7 9xx processors, Kingston's new RAM offering is mostly aimed at system builders and "heavy-users".

    Very nice specs on that RAM. And for that amount and high-end type of RAM, the price is fairly reasonable too. The only problem is I don't know of many - make that any - MOBO's that have six slots for RAM. Why didn't they make it 3 sticks at 4GB each?
     
  3. The majority of X58 i7 boards have 6 slots. Spec-wise, I don't see anything special about these at all. PC-12800 with loose timings, the only thing 'new' about these is that they come 6 to a pack instead of having to buy 2 packs of 3.

    I wonder how long that lifetime warranty will really last, seems like something's not quite right.
