Kingston HyperX PC2-8500 DDR2 1GB Kit



It wasn't that long ago when memory was by far the most visually boring component in the average PC. Since then memory manufacturers have spent a lot of time and money turning that around to the point where memory sticks are possibly the most visually attractive component, with heatspreaders in a multitude of designs and varying levels of cooling performance.

Since the release of the HyperX series, Kingston has always made use of distinct blue aluminium heatspreaders. I'm please to say that nothing has changed with the recently released PC2-8500 series, meaning you'll always be able to tell what systems are running HyperX at a glance!

Kingston have chosen to use both double sided heat transfer pads and retention clips to hold the heatspreders in place which should offer a lifetime of trouble-free cooling, but unfortunately gave me great problems trying to find what memory chips were on-board.

The HyperX PC2-8500 modules are single sided and make use of D9GKX IC's (memory chips), which are fast becoming well respected amongst the overclocking communities for their ability to do low timings at high speeds.
