2 out of 5 eggsNot Happy

Pros: Seems well constructed and passed testing (through passmark) and didn't have any errors on the memory.

Cons: For some unknown reason this memory only scores a 5.5 through the windows indexing all other of the components I bought through a DIY newegg build score at least a 7.8 but this memory isn't. I checked the Bios and everything looks correctly set up but the memory just isn't performing.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for any issue experienced with the HyperX memory. If the memory is not installed in Dual Channel memory configuration or the preferred memory slots for that configuration that can degrade performance. We are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to determine what may be causing the issue and work towards a resolution. Please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

3 out of 5 eggsHyperX good

Pros: It is still working strong almost 2 years later.

Cons: 2 eggs deducted because they have tripled the price on this since i bought it. It's stupidly insane and unjustified.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Used this in my new HTPC. 8 GB of RAM is likely overkill but it's always best to have more than you need.

Got it on sale!

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I don't use this for gaming or anything too intensive. It works well for my needs.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent RAM for the Money

Pros: Well made, nice heat sink riser
Price

Cons: Not as "fast" as other brands of 160MHz RAM

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was on sale for a good price, and I was building a mid-level gaming rig.
The memory timings are a little high, and even using Intel's tuning software, the timings reach average specs.
