Kingston HyperX 2GB PC2-9200 DDR2 Memory Kit
May 02, 2008

The Basics:

The below left image shows the two 1GB 240-pin DDR2 memory modules that make up this HyperX kit from Kingston. Each is protected by a traditional aluminum heatspreader decorated in Kingston blue. One side of each module features a DDR2 logo, then a HyperX logo, and then a Kingston logo (from left to right). The other side features a DDR2 logo, then a Kingston logo, and then a label that provides product details and manufacturing data.

A close up of one of the labels is provided in the above right image. Much of the data might not mean much to the end user, but the part number is listed, and in the middle of everything we find the voltage requirements of 2.3 - 2.35V.

Just like the 1GB PC2-9600 HyperX kit that was recently reviewed at Bigbruin.com, this review sample isn't quite the same as what you would get if you bought your own. While the components under the hood remain unchanged, Kingston has gone to a new heatspreader design that is a bit sportier and more modern. The promotional image below reveals what the kit should look like if you bought your own.


Taking one more look at the kit on hand, the images below attempt to show the interface between the heatspreader and the memory modules. So many times I find that the thermal tape isn't even touching some of the memory chips, but that is not the case here. The heatspreader, thermal tape, and all of the memory chips are obviously being held tightly in place as there isn't a single gap anywhere. Running all the way up at 2.3V may get these modules a bit warm, and having the heatspreaders making uniform contact with all the chips is necessary to get the best cooling.
