Kingston HyperX Genesis DDR3-2400 8GB-Kit Quad Channel Memory Review

Kingston HyperX Genesis 2400MHz

Kingston use their now familiar packaging on the latest HyperX kit with then modules visible through the top, held in place by grooves in the bottom layer. A part number sticker is present on the top and gives us the speed as well as CAS setting. Other timings and voltage are not present on this sticker.

Kingston build the HyperX modules on a green PCB and attach blue standard height heatsinks to each side of the sticks. These heatsinks are perforated near the top and a sticker which shows the brand name, part detail and voltage is present on each.

Each module contains 2GB of memory which will run at 2400MHz using 11-13-11-30 timings and 1.65v. Kingston have SPD and X.M.P. programmed the modules with the latter giving us the advertised settings on a 2T command rate. A second profile for DDR3-2133mhz is also available which means we simply enter the BIOS, select the XMP profile we want, save then reboot. It’s as simple as that to hit 2400MHz.
