Kingston Hyper X 2000MHz Review
The packaging is the standard RAM style consisting of a hard plastic front and back. The part that contains the DIMMs is vacuum formed around them but, unlike some packages we've seen, with enough flexibility that the sticks are easily removed with applying worrying amounts of pressure.
Once the Hyper X is out of the packet we can get a close look. Firstly the heatspreaders are lovely to look at. A really high quality finish in a lovely blue.
Perhaps more obviously is the sheer size. Oh boy these are big. When we took the side on shot to demonstrate how well manufacturered the heatspreader is, the photo reminded us of nothing more than a Spectrum 48K. But perhaps we're showing our age.
The Hyper X Fan
As befits a high end RAM kit Kingston supply us with a cooling fan to help keep this blazing DIMMs in check.
The anodising perfectly matches the DIMMs themselves and by virtue of it having two 60mm fans it hopefully wont give us the deafening whine that we can get with the some coolers.
Building the cooler is simple with just four thumbscrews to attach to keep the sides on. It's a fabulous looking bit of kit and matches the DIMMs perfectly.
