Kingston HyperX Limited Edition DDR3-1600 4GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review

Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX).  These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe).  They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V.  Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking.  Read on and see how far we can push these modules.

Special thanks to Kingston for providing us with the HyperX Limited Edition DDR3-1600 4GB Dual Channel Memory Kit to review.

Specifications
– 2x2GB Modules
– Frequency: 1600MHz
– CAS Latency: 7
– Timings: 7-8-7-20

Packaging
The Limited Edition kits comes in a simple package.  To show you how these modules comes and to give you a brief overview check out our unboxing video below!  We also unboxing a Genesis kit in the video, stay tuned for a review of that kit very soon!

Memory Overview
Memory is memory really, Kingston has gone with black heatspreaders with a cool silver trim.  They also use a plain green PCB, it would have been nice to see a black PCB to match the heatspreaders.  This is a 4GB kit so you have 2 modules, 2GB each.

The modules have both the HyperX logo on them as well as a Limited Edition logo on them.  In the center you have a sticker that tell you the part number and the voltage, but interestingly enough not the timings, they are 7-8-7-20.
