5 out of 5 eggsdidn't play well w/ amd.

Pros: Works at advertised speeds on an Asus P9X79 under voltage (1.565) w/ I7-4820k.

Cons: Not officially supported for the motherboards I used them on. Made to run at 1.65v.

Other Thoughts: I knew going in that the RAM was unsupported.
I bought 2 kits to make 16GB, in 2011, and used them on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX w/ an AMD FX6100 and nothing I could do made it stable at advertised speeds - seemed more of a chipset/CPU issue.
Did run @ 8-8-8-24 1333mhz. at 1.5v.

1 out of 5 eggsGood while it worked..

Pros: Fast but that's about it. Went to turn pc on and nothing would power on. Tested each stick in all four ram slots and nothing. Swapped out for Kingston ram and everything is back up and running. RMA'd.

Cons: Died extremely fast. Have never had a problem with ram until I bought g-skill. Never again!

4 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: Reliable and fast and set at a very reasonable price

Cons: I am only getting speeds of 1333 although it advertises 1600. Not a huge deal though. I'll just have to OC

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The item works at it's correct speed with an AMD and Intel system. Life time warranty.

Cons: I don't like the green PCB. I wish it was blue or black. The voltage used for this ram is 1.65 and not 1.5.

5 out of 5 eggsMemory SPD Misunderstandings

Pros: SPD is Serial Presence Detect: it specifies the Timeings and etc in the first 255 bytes of the ram module. The purpose is to autodetect the memory timings, to ensure they are set properly. Kingston, has done something truly brilliant and insightful, to help you peons who can't figure this stuff out, so the ram just works. Here's the skinny, and why it's so brilliant. They set the Voltage down to 1.5 because of the nightmare some people experience when their ram sticks SPD sets the voltage for 1.65 and their motherboard cannot boot with that speed setting. A friend of mine had an ASUS board with Dominator ram the required 1.65v. The Sniper MOBO supported 1.65, just not on initial boot. He had to use MY Kingstom Ram rated at 1.5v go into Bios, override the SPD (Turn Auto off) and manually set 1.65v and then shutdown, swap ram and BAM everything worked fine. Until he loses bios, or resets it etc. This reduces false RMAs because more systems will boot standard JEDEC SPD voltages.

Cons: Ok, this is not without CONS.

Obviously, the memory boots in systems initially using SPD auto settings. (1333) This actually underclocks the memory, while still being stable(ish), this is not ideal, nor the purpose of this memory. If you want 1333, just by some, it's cheaper. If you bought this and run it at 1333, you wasted your money, because 1333 isn't what these were designed to run at. Because they CAN doesn't mean they SHOULD. They can also run at 2000. Same thing, you shouldn't push them that hard because you can, IMO they are much more likely to fail that way. The great thing is that if you know this, and wanna push them anyway, and have the knowledge to back it up, you're getting a helluva deal, and it's fun. But PlugNPlay isn't what these stick are about. These sticks, are ment to rock! :P

Other Thoughts: If there were a 6 on tech level, I'd be there. I've used THOUSANDS of Kingston sticks in mass production, and personal use. In my own experience with these sticks -> [From Motherboard to Motherboard] I'm having problems getting it stable and I know what I'm doing. I'm also using 4 sticks of it and my MSI-890 is not 100% stable. Prime95 throws errors and memtest+ will freeze. In my other board, but with my other newer MSI-990 chipset it works flawlessly with a 7.9 WEI so I'm certain it's a voltage regulation problem. I don't like messing with RAM settings, but luckily if I can get it stable, I can save my CMOS setting to a flash drive (fat32 only) MSI+Kingston is a strong force and makes a powerful combination in regards to stability, and longevity.

Bottom line, THIS HyperX Memory is for tweakers, and those learning the ropes.

An informed buyer will be happy. Woe to the noob who buys without reading my review.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not operate at 1600mhz

Pros: Cheap, looks cool. Low temps.

Cons: Memory is advertised as 1600mhz but its really 1333mhz. You have to increase voltage to 1.65, indicating an overclock. My system would not be stable with the indicated timings and voltages, so i reverted to defaults (1333mhz CAS 9 @ 1.5volts) and its running fine. I had to clear CMOS just to be able to revert the changes, wouldn't even post at 1600mhz.
I had the memory working at 1.5v but it was very unstable. At 1.65v wouldn't even post.

Other Thoughts: I'm debating if its worth waiting another week to get 1600mhz memory and return this. Kingston was a brand i purchased before but I will shy away from now on.

Manufacturer Response:

We apologize for the issue you experienced. However, HyperX memory requires the user to go into the BIOS and configure the overclocking features.

There is another HyperX product called PnP, Plug and Play, where all you need to do is plug them in and the system automatically boots to the specified speed.

Kingston products are 100% tested to meet the listed specifications. If you are not satisfied please contact our Technical Support team at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) and one of our Technical Support Representatives will assist you with the problem. Please be sure to have the part on hand if you call in.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid so far

Pros: Great price. No problems

Cons: Motherboard showed up as 1333mhz.

Other Thoughts: It's normal for motherboard to detect memory at lower speeds, so a quick change to 1600mhz was no biggie. Been running great for a week, very cool temperatures.
