Kingston HyperX Savage DDR3 2400MHz 16GB Kit Review

Introduction

Kingston are one of the biggest names in the memory industry, with a kit available regardless of the size, speed and even aesthetic requirements you have. 

Their HyperX brand has always been the provider of some very fast options, as well as coming equipped with some of the best looking heatspreaders around.

The Savage kit we have up for review today ticks both of those boxes, with 16GB of 2400MHz goodness wrapped up in one of the coolest designs we've seen for a while.

Let's take a closer look.

Technical Specifications

Fast : top-performing modules available with low-profile heat spreader
Unique : red, asymmetrical heat spreader sets new trends for PC builds
Quality : aluminium die-cast heat spreader with a diamond cut finish
Design : low profile to fit under oversized CPU coolers
Reliable : 100-percent factory tested
Guaranteed : lifetime warranty, free technical support
Capacity : 8GB-32GB (kits)
Frequency Speed : 1600MHz, 1866MHz, 2133MHz and 2400MHz
CAS Latency : CL9-CL11
Voltage : 1.5V, 1.65V
Operating Temperature : 0°C to 85°C
Dimensions : 133.35mm x 32.8mm

Warranty: Lifetime

In our Z97 test rig the Savage easily hits its XMP. Despite the timings being a little slacker than we'd like at this price it's difficult to complain.

N00b question, will those work with the 990FX chipset (provided that the board supports 2400Mhz DRAM speeds)?Quote

Hmm, it might only seem to support the following chipsets: H67, H97, P67, Z68, Z77, Z87, Z97 and H61 Intel chipsets
as well as A75, A87, A88, A89, A78 and E35 AMD chipsetsQuote

Great looking RAM, and as said in the review, the HyperX name means that it's good stuff. (worth the small price premium)Quote

Asus hasn't updated their Memory compatibility lists for those motherboards, neither Kingston has included the chipsets to the tests.. However if it supports E51 chipset, 990fx shouldn't be a problem, idkQuote
