Kingston HyperX 2x1GB 1375MHz CL7 DDR3 Kit (KHX11000D3LLK2/2G)

Kingston is a market leader in the memory market, and it wasn't luck that got it to that point. As we've seen in our past reviews, Kingston has good quality products that perform well. It's HyperX line of products exemplifies this, as the HyperX portfolio contains some of Kingston's highest performing products. In our series of upcoming DDR3 memory kit reviews, I thought I would start off first with our Kingston 1375MHz rated kit. Its rated speed of DDR3-1375 is the lowest of the kits we have lined up to review, so we'll if it has anything up its sleeve.

Kingston's KHX11000D3LLK2/2G DDR3 Memory Kit

For those familiar with Kingston's HyperX memory series, the sight of the blue anodized aluminum heatspreaders on this model should not be a surprise. Both sides of the heatspreaders are held together with a combination of silver colour clips and adhesive thermal pads.

The front of Kingston DDR3 DIMMs

On the front of both of the DIMMs are the Kingston logo, an exclamation of DDR3, and a holographic Kingston label with memory model information.

The back of Kingston DDR3 DIMMs

The back of the DIMMs is similar to the front, with the HyperX model logo, another mention of DDR3, and Kingston's logo.

The A side and cross-section view of the Kingston DDR3 DIMMs

Looking through the heatspreaders at the actual memory module, we can see that there are memory IC's on both sides of the module's PCB. The thermal pads are making good contact with all of the chips on both DIMMs.
