Kingston HyperX Predator 8GB 2666MHz Review

Test Setup

8GB Kingston HyperX Predator 2666MHz RAM
Gigabyte Z77X UD5H - F14 BIOS
Intel Core i7-3770K @ 4GHz
Sapphire HD7950
Catalyst 12.8
Cougar CM1000 PSU
Corsair F80 SSD
Thermalright Silver Arrow
Windows 7 x64


We're going to ignore the 2400MHz XMP profile and focus just upon the 2666MHz XMP1 setting. As you can see, although it's supposed to read 11-13-13-30-2T our sample profile ran at 14 on both the tRCD and tRP. Despite being already at the 1.65v capacity we're sure we can do better than this.

Sure enough with exactly the same voltages it was completely stable at 10-12-12-30-1T timings. Dropping a full CAS latency timing is nothing to be sniffed at, and a sign of why Kingston feel this worthy of the HyperX branding. Because this required no changes other than adjusting the timings manually, this will be the setting we use for today's review.

Kingston really didn't need to make such huge heatspreaders IMO. i think the design is gorgeous but would look equally badass if it was the same height as say, Mushkin Ridgeback. I just don't understand why they feel the need for such huge heatspreaders. we all know RAM doesn't even get very hot...Quote
