I used to have 12gb of OCZ gold series memory that I got from my dad, who bought them for his computer back in 2009. Recently at least one of the sticks failed, so I had to remove 3 of the sticks (of 6) and it was working fine then, but I only had 6gb of memory. I like to run a lot of applications at once, so I like to have at least 12gb.

I looked at some of the 12gb kits of triple channel at a few places, and decided on the Kingston HyperX Genesis kit. This stuff feels really weighty and high quality, and I really love the shade of blue on the heatsinks.

The overall color scheme of my system right now is more dark/black and earthy tones (asus sabertooth motherboard and noctua stuff) so the OCZ memory did match that a bit better with it's black PCBs and gold heatsinks, but I do have a gigabyte graphics card, so it will match that, plus I am happy to have some better quality memory.

Here's a few pictures I took when I was installing the Kingston ram, and a picture of how the OCZ ram looked.

Nice! The grey version looks good. I wonder why they call it plug and play though? is there any difference between that and the blue genesis stuff?
