Kingston HyperX 1866Mhz

Memory

Conclusion

The HyperX KHX1866C9D3T1K3/6GX triple channel kit certainly has the gla
orous looks with the shiny metallic blue heat spreaders. The performance too seems to be in order with the kit completely outperforming the Gold 1333MHz kit from OCZ’s value range although we were unable to compare to a kit of similar frequency.

Unfortunately, overclocking really lets the kit down and stable clocks simply weren’t achievable above the standard speed. This is clearly disappointing as we had been looking for the kit to offer some reasonable headroom in the overclocking department.

Still, if you’re not looking for overclockability, the kit would seem to be a good purchase with an appropriate price tag, great style and performance to match.
