We recently took a look at a 4x 2GB kit of high speed memory from Kingston's HyperX T1 line up [review link]. 8GB of DDR3 running at 2133MHz isn't for your typical computer, but with the way things are going, it is far easier for people to take advantage of such high performance kits without being expert overclockers. While that 8GB kit's price of just over $200 (US) may scare off some users, we have another 2133MHz kit from Kingston that may have even greater appeal thanks to a price that is just under $100 (US).

In this review we will take a look at the Kingston HyperX Genesis 4GB 2133MHz DDR3 memory kit, as shown in the image above with a special edition grey colored heatspreader. This kit is comprised of two 2GB modules rated for 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27. Before taking a closer look at the kit provided for review, let's take a closer look at some of the features and specifications taken from the product listing at Newegg.com.

Typically, Kingston HyperX modules are easily identifiable by their bright blue heatspreaders, but for the "X2 Grey Series" the styling has changed. Grey was chosen just for something a little different, and as an effort to color coordinate with some of the new Sandy Bridge systems that use a more monotone color scheme.

Packaging:

The below left image shows an overview of the packaging used for this Kingston HyperX Genesis kit. It looks like just about any other Kingston dual channel kit I have used or seen, with the label providing the only distinguishing bits of information. Taking a look at the below right image we get more information on the kit found inside, all of which has been detailed in the features and specifications section above.
