Kingston HyperX 1GB PC2-9600 DDR2 Memory Kit
April 07, 2008

The Basics:

The kit provided for review is 'dressed' in Kingston's previous generation of heatspreader, so what you would buy today would look different than the samples shown below. Our samples feature a traditional heatspreader in Kingston blue that attach by metal clips. There are a variety of Kingston logos on the modules, and on one side of each there is a white label that details some of the manufacturing and performance data.

The promotional image below shows how this kit might look if you were to get one retail. The heatspeader is a thinner flat sheet of aluminum that looks a bit more modern. The look is more sporty and streamlined, but Kingston promises you get the same performance "under the hood".

Back to the kit on hand, the image below shows an end view to show the interface between the modules, thermal tape, and heatspreader. Everything is sandwiched together tightly, so heat transfer should be as good as it is going to get in this configuration. While heatspreaders may be more for show and protecting the modules from damage, with a specified voltage of 2.3V, things might get warm enough to make any extra cooling a welcome feature!
