OC3D Review: Kingston HyperX DDR3 CL9 2000mhz 3GB Triple channel kit

We have for review today, the first 2000MHz triple channel kit. The Kingston HyperX 2000MHz Triple channel kit is, at the time of writing this review, the fastest kit available for i7.

Linky to the forum is broken!

Also nice review, but preferred to see a 6GB at 1800, 3GB doesn't cut it, especially at those prices

i really love the Red heat spreaders on my G Skill i think they are tastefully done but they still look good but good point on changing color on the PCB... anyways that price is likely more then we mid-rangers can afford... but for performance good show...

Holy heck. That RAM flies. Didn't think that such a small (relative) difference between the two kits could have such a big effect in the graphs.

It's a steep price to pay, but i7 isn't a cheap thing to adopt anyway and if we pay 300 notes for our graphics, then why not speed up the whole system for less?

It looks like there was an overclock on the CPU too so that might have affected at least superpi and game performance :/
