Memory speeds usually are not the primary focus on a system in reference of performance in the mainstream with both AMD and Intel. As of late, the prices have dropped considerably on DDR3 and choices in this arena have leaned toward 1600MHz memory kits and we all know low timings and latencies are better. Since the launch of Bulldozer, the reviews on the platform show a mixed bag of performance. The four to namely the eight core processors seem to shine with multi threaded applications thus making higher memory capacities and speeds more popular.

Kingston is one of the companies that are offering new memory modules for the Bulldozer platform. We’ve seen many kits from Kingston over the past few years and their HyperX modules are well known for high performance.

Today we’re looking at a set of Kingston HyperX Limited Edition Red Series 8GB DDR3-1600 kit modules. Sporting sexy red heatspreaders, the HyperX Limited Edition Red Series would look great on all motherboards that use black and/or red aesthetics. So with no further ado, let’s take a look at HyperX Red Limited Edition 8GB kit.

Founded in 1987 with a single product offering, Kingston Technology now offers more than 2,000 memory products that support nearly every device that uses memory, from computers, servers and printers to MP3 players, digital cameras and cell phones.
