With the reputation as a striding giant within the memory industry, it seems strange indeed that Kingston has kept its paws out of the DDR2 pot pie. When the KHX-6000 memory was released, it essentially represented a huge move for Kingston. Much like their Hyper-X modules of past sticks usually noted for superb overclockability, due to the excellent choice of memory chips as well as stringent quality standards. When these modules debuted, Kingston was proving to the industry that they had guts. Considering that most users would have had trouble nailing memory frequencies of around 667MHz at this time, the ability to hit 750 at low voltages and latencies seemed insane and incredible. Now, while these specifications may have been incredible for the times, they are relatively tame by today's standards. Yet, there's no sense in kicking something before it's down, so let's see if Kingston's memory can give the modern competition a run for its money.
