Kingston 2GB 800MHz HyperX FB-DIMM Memory Kit Review

Last month, Kingston Technology announced the release of a high-performance, low-latency 800MHz DDR2 fully-buffered dual-inline memory modules (FB-DIMMs). Kingston uses a single U-shaped heat pipe to cool the FB-DIMMs' Advanced Memory Buffer (AMB). To help transfer the heat away from the heat pipe they then employed a set of nine cooling fins dissipate the intense heat from the AMB. Read on to see how the kit performs!

The Kingston 800MHz HyperX FB-DIMMs are hands down the most innovative cooling design that we have seen Kingston bring to market. The design is flawless and the modules run cooler than any other FB-DIMMs that we have seen. For those that want even better cooling, simply place a fan on the modules like we did and you'll notice another massive temperature reduction. When it comes to building a high-end enthusiast platform using the Intel Skulltrail motherboard having the right memory modules is critical and Kingston should be the top brand on the short shopping list...

wow, getting four FB-DIMMS to run at tighter timings than my 2 corsair regular ddr2 chips with DHX is quite impresive!
