Kingston HyperX PC3-11000 CL7 DDR3 2gb Kit
Kingston seem to be one of the very few memory manufacturers that use packaging of their own design. This is certainly a good thing as the generic moulded plastic blister pack style packaging adopted by most other manufacturers offers minimal protection for the memory at best.
As we can see from the images above, the KHX11000D3LLK2/2G kit comes in a robust box constructed from anti-static plastic with a clear plastic lid. This not only protects the modules from damage (both electrostatic and physical) but also gives good visibility of the modules inside the packaging.
Since the release of the HyperX series, Kingston has always made use of distinct blue aluminium heatspreaders. Interestingly the design of the DDR3 range shown on their website differs somewhat from the 'original' styled modules we received. I can only assume that Kingston were keen to get their DDR3 modules out on the market and decided to leave the redesign of their heatspreaders to a slightly later date.
