Kingston Hyper X 2000MHz Review

Kingston Hyper X  2000MHz

Gaming and Vantage

3D Mark Vantage

3D Mark is teeth gnashingly inconsistent with almost every other test. Here we find the results all well within error tolerance, but not following the previous results as all three tests give around the same result.


Running the High benchmark should start to see the boost provided by the overclocked setup, and yet it doesn't. Sure the graph shows a tiny lead in the CPU test, but again they're all well within general test variances.


Need for Speed Shift

The wheel turns and the same spoke comes up. Slight variances but nothing to write home about with all of our systems at roughly the same level of performance. The Dominator GT gets the lead in the average FPS test but all of them pass the 60FPS playable score by quite a margin.


Dirt 2

Dirt 2 finally sees our results return to those we'd expect, although it's still only the odd frame here or there.


Crysis Warhead

Even Crysis Warhead, which can normally be relied upon to take up the mantle of performance hardware, but besides a serious gain at the maximum end they all once again end up around where you'd expect.

Awesome review dude, I love the heatsinks as well. Out of interest (as you might have swayed me with this one) what heatsink are you using in the set up and is it in a 'pull' config as it won't fit against the ram if it's on 'push'? Would be awesome to know if it would fit with my Titan Fenrir in there. Cheers.Quote

The heatsink there is a Xigmatec Thors Hammer, the fenrir should be fine though.

Working? No chance I'm sat in a coffee shop in Regent Street!Quote

Cheers dude, I think I'll almost definitely get me some of this sweetness. Was gonna get some good 1600MHz stuff, but when this has the same latencies with a massive 400MHz boost for only £15 more, I don't think I really have a choice now do I?

Glad to hear OC3D doesn't keep you locked up permanently, means you can enjoy some of this peculiarly nice weather we've been having during the usually monsoon-like April Quote
