Kingston HyperX Beast Overview
It is not often you see a 64GB memory kit! Right now the standard is 16GB kits and with the popularity of the Z77 chipset that means they are dual channel kits (8GBx2). This 64GB kit is a made up of eight 8GB modules. This means you will only be able to use this kit in systems where you have 8 DIMM slots available (Intel X79).
The modules themselves have a green PCB and black heatspreader. On the heatspreader you will find both the Kingston and HyperX beast logos. Of course on one of the sides you are also going to find a sticker that lists all of the important information. Again for reference we are reviewing the KHX21C11T3FK8/64X kit.
The black heatspreaders have a sort of fin design at the top and actually extend past the actual PCB on the memory. The official height of the modules are 1.827-inches (48.41mm) so make sure that you are going to have clearance for the modules before you purchase them.
