Kingston today announced the latest additions to its HyperX memory kits lineup, the HyperX H2O. The launch includes one triple channel and two dual channel DDR3 kits made up of modules equipped with a newly-designed heatspreader which – as the name suggests – can be connected to water cooling setups.
The highest performing kit features two 2GB modules rated to run at 2,133MHz with latency timings of 9-11-9-27. A dual channel 4GB (2x2GB) kit is rated to run at 2,000MHz with the same timings, while a triple channel 6GB (3x2GB) kit can also by run at a frequency of 2,000MHz but with slightly faster latency timings of 9-10-9-27. According to Kingston, all sticks can achieve their top-rated speeds at the standard maximum voltage setting of 1.65V, but the extra cooling should provide a little head-room for those looking to push their systems a bit harder without making them unstable.
All modules also support Intel XMP profiles to make things easier for overclockers, and are backed by a lifetime warranty as well as free technical support from Kingston. In terms of pricing, the HyperX H2O kits are available at $157 for the 2,000MHz 4GB kit, $205 for the 2,133MHz pair, and $235 for the triple channel 6GB set running at 2,000MHz.
